Son of Samuel E. and Frances Lewis Barrett

Harry M. Barrett, of Loop, one of the most promising young men of the county died in the Adrian hospital, at Punxsutawney on Tuesday last. Mr. Barrett was several years ago troubled with consumption of the bowels but had entirely recovered last winter. On June 23, 1898 he enlisted as a recruit in Company F, Fifth Pennsylvania Volunteers then stationed at Chickamaugua Park and upon his arrival there, speedily won his way into the affection of all his comrades. He was assigned to duty in the pioneer corps and demonstrated his ability and fitness for that important part of army life. From exposure while in the field and camp he contracted his old trouble and five weeks ago sought relief at the hospital. It was soon known that his case was hopeless but his death came as a shock to his many friends. He was survived by his mother, Mrs. Fannie Barrett, his father being dead and also by several brothers and sisters.

Funeral services were held Saturday at his mother's residence by Rev. Kemp. A firing squad consisting of a corporal and six privates of Company F, was in attendance and many of his comrades were also there. Interment in Smicksburg cemetery" (Indiana Democrat, Indiana, PA, Wednesday, April 26, 1899, Page 1, Column 3).
