Charles C Barber, who ranks among the younger class of energetic and advancing farmers of Eau Claire county. Wisconsin, is the son of Solon and Elmira (Richards) Barber, who were both born in St. Lawrence county. New York, and were descended from old and prominent families. They made their home in New York state until they came to Wisconsin and settled on the farm near Augusta. Here they lived, the father devoting himself to general farming and stock raising and passed the rest of his life. He was a good man, known for his uprightness and probity of character, and all who knew him honored and respected him. He took an active interest in public affairs and at one time was a member of the board of county commissioners. His widow, who still survives, is a charming lady and is loved for her goodness of heart and many womanly virtues by her large circle of friends. She is the mother of six children, four of whom are now (1914) living, viz: Ella is the wife of Charles Stinson; Emma married Rev. John Johns and resides at Reedsburg, Wis.; George lives in Harvard.
