|Birth: ||Dec. 21, 1788|
Barbara (Barbary) was one of the ten children of Andrew Simon and Mary Elizabeth Geckler/Keckler. She was born in Washington County, Pennsylvania, where the family resided, after a move from "over the mountains" where the first four of her syblings were born.
Her father Andrew bought land in Columbiana County, Ohio in 1802. In this same county resided Christopher Bair. He was a son of Rudolph Bair and Barbara Yerian.
Barbary married Christopher, before 1812 in Columbiana County, Ohio. She was a member of the St. John's (Salem) Church in Columbiana Co. Barbary and Christopher lived on the "Andrew Simon section", (640 acres) of land in Salem Township, Columbiana County, Ohio, which also made homes for five other of her siblings. The Bair couple then moved about a mile further east, in that same county.
All of their children were born in Columbiana County, Ohio. The family births are recorded in the Christopher Bair Bible that is documented in "Ancestral Notes from Chedwato" by Charles D. and Edna W. Townsend.
In 1837 the family moved to Holmes Co. Ohio. The family is recorded in Prairie Twp., Holmes County, Ohio's 1840 and 1850 census. Barbary passed away sometime after Aug. 14, 1850 and before 1860.
Barbary is resting in Holmes County, Ohio.
