Biographical Text

The children of Virgil Horace Barber and Jerusha Booth Barber were received into the Roman Catholic church in 1816, when both of their parents converted in New York. The older girls, Mary, Abigail, and Susan, joined their mother in the Visitation convent in Georgetown, DC. Josephine, an infant, was cared for by a family member. The son, Samuel, lived with his father in the Jesuit college. Samuel graduated from Georgetown in 1831, entered the Jesuits as a novice, and was ordained in Rome, returning to Georgetown in 1840.
