    Samuel Barber's earliest years. This was originally written in 1995. While the general history and the family stories here are correct, we now know that Samuel never joined any wagon train to Tennessee or Kentucky. He joined the U.S. Army in 1801 and eventually found himself in Louisiana, where he deserted. Read “Barber”Family in Louisiana" and “Samuel in Maryland” for more recent research.

    This, too, dates from 1997, and is what I know about Samuel's origins before he joined the army and the story picks up in "Barber Family in Louisiana." More recent work using DNA testing to discover our origins in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century have yielded some hints, but that is not covered here.

    A persistent Barber family legend holds that Samuel Barber's mother was a sister to Bunker Hill hero Joseph Warren and that she herself was once abducted by Indians and recovered. Here's what I learned back in 1993.
