Janette was the daughter of Richard McBride and Luretta Hutchins. She married Henry Delos Barber on 30 Nov 1871 in Clayton county, Iowa. They were the parents of Homer, Ada, Margie, William, Darby, and Oscar.
August 6, 1885 - Storm Lake Pilot - Died in Hayes township, Tuesday August 4, 1885, of spinal meningitis, Jeannette, wife of H.D. Barber.
Jeanette McBride was born in Clayton county, Iowa, December 24th, 1854, and on Thanksgiving Day, 1870, was married to H.D. Barber, and with him a few years later came to find a home in Buena Vista county. She was an earnest member of the Methodist church, a devoted wife and a loving mother.
Six children, the youngest about two years, are left without the constant watchfulness that none but such a mother can give. Mrs. Barber was a house-keeper of rare neatness her work was never done until her sufferings were ended in death.
Four weeks she was almost constantly unconscious, but to her even then the comforts of husband and children were uppermost. Her strength had been impaired of late, her nerves being drawn to the highest tension, when by an accident she received a severe shock from which she never rallied.
The funeral occurred at two o'clock yesterday from the home, the mortal body being laid to rest in the family grave yard. A deep and tender sympathy will be felt for the mourning family and relatives. The God of love and mercy alone knows why we are called upon to mourn for the dear ones when it seems we need them most and before they have lived their full term of years. It is a mystery to us now but in His own time He has promised that all shall be explained.
