John Barber Jr., born 19 Feb 1687 at Suffield, Connecticut2,1, was of Springfield, Massachusetts when he married, 30 Dec 1714 at Suffield (int. 7 Nov), Sarah Smith of Suffield, daughter of Ebenezer Smith and Sarah (–?–).3,4 She died 5 Aug 17335, and he married (2) (int. 20 Sep 1735, Springfield), Mary/3 Noble of Westfield, daughter of Mark/2 Noble and Mary Marshall.5
     The Ricker Compilation combines the 1687 Suffield birth record with a 1718 death at Simsbury. Since John Barber and Sarah Smith had children after 1718, the man who died at Simsbury was clearly another of the same name.6
