Birth: Jul. 17, 1880
Indiana, USA
Death: May 11, 1921
Indiana, USA

My great great grandfather

Husband of Maudie M Hopper

Father of Alpha, John Raymond, Milllie, Willie(died at birth) and James

Grandpa Barrett was a miner by trade. Died in a mine cave in at the Hartwell Bottoms Coal Mine. A 2,000 pound piece of granet broke away and fell on him, killing him instantly. Before it hit him, he managed to push other men out of the way saving several lives while giving his own.

My great grandmother, Alpha, always spoke lovingly of her father saying he was a kind & loving father and husband.
