CHARLES BARR AND
HARRIETTE CATHERINE THOMPSON-BARR FAMILY
Charles Thomas Barr, (a twin with Rosa "Rose" Lee Barr), was born 3/30/1870 in Shackelford, Missouri, on the farm of his parents Thomas Barr and Mary Grant-Barr. That year, John D. Rockefeller incorporated Standard Oil, and construction began the Brooklyn Bridge.
Charles remained on the farm, and married Harriette C. Thompson on January 20th, 1903 in Shackelford, Missouri, at Immaculate Conception Church, with attendants Agnes Flynn and Warren Venable. He brought his bride to the house southwest of Shackelford, where their first children were born. The family then purchased a farm from the O'Keefe Family southeast of Shackelford near Sunnyside School District, where seven more children were born.
One of the sons (Walter), inherited the farm, and has also kept it in the Barr family.
Charles Thomas Barr died in Marshall, Missouri, 4/16/1947, and Harriette passed 10/12/1949. Both are buried at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Marshall, MO.
