Birth: 1778

New York Daily Reformer, Watertown, NY, Tuesday, September 7, 1869

Mr John Barney, whose funeral was attended at the Baptist Church in Belleville on Sunday last, was one of the oldest, if not the oldest man in town. He was born in Guilford, Vt., in the year 1778, and emigrated to Jefferson Co. in 1805. He early took an active part in promoting the educational interests of the county, was one of the corporate trustees of Union Academy, contributing liberally of his means to found and sustain that institution, and lived to see one of his sons Principal of the school, and afterwards State superintendent of Common Schools in Ohio. One of his grandsons, Hon. Calvin Littlefield, was also Principal of Union Academy. Mr. Barney has been for more than fifty years past a member of the Baptist Church, and always sustained a good Christian character. For many years past the infirmities of age have compelled him to withdraw from the active scenes of life, so that he is comparatively unknown to the present generation.
