  6.  Robert Sanford Barber, born 6 June 1832, Clarke County, Georgia, 
      married Harriett Elizabeth Hudson, 8 May 1855, Rusk County, Texas.
      (see chapter 13)

  7.  Allen F. Barber, born 1834, Clarke County, Georgia, died 26 Feb 1863
      at Camp Douglas, Illinois as a prisoner of war. Allen married Martha A. 
      Hardgrave, 31 August 1856, Cherokee County, Texas.  Allen F Barber 
      enlisted 15 Feb 1862 at Larissa, Cherokee County, Texas, and was 
      captured along with the 17th Texas Cavalry at Arkansas Post, 
      Arkansas 11 January 1963. He died of pnuemonia in Feb 1863.  Allen 
      F. Barber and Martha apparently did not have children, as no 
      descendants were named in probate records on Allen Barber.  And 
      Martha apparently preceded Allen in death, as there was no widow's
      pension application.



  8.  Mary F. Barber, born 1840, Clarke County, Georgia, married Andrew 
      Hickman, who was born 1840.  They had no children by 1870, and were 
      living in Van Wert, Polk County, Georgia.95

Allen Barber was a wagon maker by trade, and at least four of his sons followed that trade, Silas, James, William and Robert. Wiley was a school teacher at the age of 20, and later a Judge. One son-in-law, Andrew Hickman, was also a wagon maker.
