[3227] Thomas Barber, an original patentee of Simsbury, was the son of Thomas Barber of Windsor who came from England with the Saltonstall party under Francis Stiles in 1635. He probably learned his carpentry trade from his father. We know that he built the first meeting house, church and gristmill in Simsbury. He received a commission of Lieutenant in the local militia. A famous story told about him is the incident of the drum warning. Apparently he noticed Indians surrounding the town and went onto his roof with a drum and beat out a warning that was heard by the militia company in Windsor who then marched to Simsbury's defense. He married Mary Phelps b. 2 Mar 1644 in Windsor, daughter of William Phelps Sr., (Mary or) Anne Dover, in 17 Dec 1663 and had 8 children. At the time of his death 10 May 1713 his wife and five children were living and shared in his estate. He is buried in the Hopmeadow Cemetery near the sight of the now nonexistent meetinghouse. -- From Simsbury Family History (March 15, 2006) http://www.simsburyhistory.org/family-history.html

[679] DEATH: Mary apparently died young.

[1971] The 1898 obituary for Ann Claggett says that Thomas.Johnson Claggett is living in Lexington at the time of Ann's death. McPherson, p. 56 The funeral of Mr. Thomas J. Claggett was held at his late residence at 2. p. m. on Wednesday of last week. The attendance was very large, demonstrating the esteem in which he was held a by his neighbors and acquaintances. As was said in the paper, last week, Mr. Claggett had been in rather poor health for the past seven years, but this winter he had been about as usual, was able to be out of doors and, even went to town a few times. About a week before his death he was taken with the grippe, but there was no apprehension of danger, and his death came as a great surprise to his family. Mrs. Claggett was in Chicago visiting her daughter, Mrs. Nannie Roy, but was herself taken quite seriously sick and was confined to the bed when word came of her husband's illness. To her very great sorrow she was not able to be with and minister to his comfort during the closing days of his life. But however every thing was done for him which medical skill and the loving bands of faithful children could devise. The Rev. J. E. Connor officiated and preached a very comforting and helpful sermon. Misses Maggie Shade and Laura Rent and Dr. Covey and A. H. Scrogin sang, Miss Alta Williams was organist. The bearers were Messrs E. H. Hyneman, John Langstaff, J. E. Covey, Harmon Hefner, James Woodard all of Lexington, and Wm. Hursey of Normal. The body was laid to rest in the Lexington cemetery. Thomas J. Claggett was born in Fauquier County, Va., June 1, 1841. Died at his home near Lexington Ill., Monday morning Feb. 4, 1901, aged fifty-nine years, eight months and three days. He married Miss Columbia Claggett, Aug. 5, 1861. To them nine children were born, two sons and seven daughters. Of these four only survive, viz: Mrs. [Emily] Emma C. Hefner of Lexington, Ill., Mrs. [Anne] Nannie Roy, of Chicago; Miss Minnie Claggett and Mr. S[amuel] C. Claggett, of Lexington. These with their widowed mother mourn the departure of their loved one to the other worId. Mr. Claggett leaves also a [half-]brother Mr. F. [Benjamin Franklin "Frank"] Claggett, and two [half-]sisters, Mrs. [Frances "Fannie"Caroline] Wm. Francis, of Belton, Va., and Mrs. Julia [Catherine Claggett Beasley] Kirby, of Aon, Va., Mrs. S[anford]. R. [Nancy Terry] Claggett, a sister-in-law, and other more remote relatives. Mr. Claggett and family moved to Illinois in [February] 1879. For the last nineteen years he has resided in this community. He was known to all as an industrious man, a good neighbor, a loving husband and a kind father. For the last seven years his health has been poor. Last spring he gave evidence of being near the end of his earthly career. Again in the fall be was taken worse but recovered sufficiently to get up and go around. One week ago Monday he was again attacked and it soon became apparent that his end was near. He departed-this life Monday morning, a few minutes before eleven. I have known the departed for over a year and during that time have been in the home repeatedly. While be was sick last spring and again this fall I Visited him, and both times he himself requested that I should lead in prayer. On Monday morning I talked to him in regard to his prospect and he declared that he wan resigned and ready to go, that he expected soon to be in that home where there is no sickness or pain or death. He said moreover, that he had made his peace with God some three years ago. He had also made such arrangements as he wished in regard to his funeral services, and even selected the text used this afternoon. It is our prayer that God may comfort the widow and fatherless, the brother and other friends as he only can. Rev. J. E. Conner

[1976] The 1900 census reports Columbia had 10 children, only 4 of whom were living. Mrs. Columbia Claggett, a prominent and well-known resident of Lexington, died at her residence Sunday at a little after 1 p. m. Mrs. Claggett had been in failing health for some time but the ultimate cause of her death was paralysis, she being severely stricken with that disease more than six months ago and from which she was a constant sufferer until her death. Columbia Claggett, daughter of Christopher and Emily Claggett, was born in Buckland, Fauquire county Virginia, September 25, 1836. She was one of a family of four children, there being two boys and two girls, both of her brothers preceding her in death. She was married to Thomas J. Claggett, August 21, 1861. To them were born nine children, six of whom with their father preceded the mother in death, the father dying February, 4, 1901. In February 1879, Mr. and Mrs. Claggett came to Lexington and spent the remaining years of her life in her pleasant home on North street. Mr. and Mrs. Claggett were both highly esteemed by the community in which they lived, being both neighborly and hospitable, and by her death the children lose a loving and devoted mother. She is survived by three children: Mrs. Emily C. Hefner, and Mrs. Minnie Wheaton, both of Lexington and Samuel C. Claggett of Chicago, and by her son-in-law, Mr. Mark Roy, of Chicago. There are also three grandchildren, Charles Ervin Biggs and Samuel Golden Claggett of Chicago and Elmer, Javan Roy of Lexington. One sister, Miss Sallie A. Claggett, of Lorton, Virginia, also survives. One daughter, Mrs. Nannie Roy, died March '29, 1903. Mrs. Claggett was for years a member of the M. E. church. During the Civil War, Mr. and Mrs. Claggett lived near many of the important battle fields in Virginia and she was able to tell some thrilling tales of those bloody days. At one time a skirmish between the northern and southern forces took place in their yard and afterward Mr. Stephen Merrill, who was Chaplain of the Second Maryland, Regiment, took some pictures of the place. The funeral services of Mrs. Claggett were held from her late residence at 2 p. m. Tuesday. Rev. Wm. Wooley, pastor of the M. E. church of Chenoa, conducted the services and was assisted by Rev. R. T. Ballew of the Lexington M. E. church. A quartet composed of Mesdames John Montgomery and L. J. Hammers and Messrs. Tom Oddy and T. F. Fieker, furnished the music. The pall-bearers were Messrs. George Hiser, James Davidson, Luther Beasley, L. B. Strayer, C. J. W. McNemar and W. R. Mahan. The body was laid to rest in the Lexington cemetery. Those from out of town who attended the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. S[amuel]. C. Claggett and son, and Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Biggs, of Chicago and Mr. and Mrs. W[illiam]. H. Claggett, of Normal. --Lexington Newspaper
