James R. Barber
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 24, 1846
Death: Mar., 1918

Mr. Jas. R. Barber, one of Polk's best known and most highly esteemed citizens, passed away Wednesday night after several months of ill health, aged seventy-two years. His was a golden heart and a gentle spirit, and his long life was one of usefulness and honor. For many years he was prominent in business and mining circles. His life was happy in his union with two sisters, his first wife being Miss Mary Lou and his second Miss Emma Dean, daughters of the late Mr. and Mrs. C.H. Wood, the latter surviving him. Mr. Barber was a devoted member of the First Methodist church, and was for years a member of its official board. He stood high in Masonic circles, being a Past Master of Caledonia Lodge, a Past High Priest of Adoniram Chapter, and a Knight Templar. Funeral services were conducted Friday morning at the residence on College street by his pastor, Rev. W. T. Hunnicutt, and the remains were laid to rest in Greenwood cemetery with Masonic obsequies. Cedartown mourns the loss of one of her oldest and best citizens, whose memory will long be cherished.
