I see I only posted a part of the bio, sorry, here it is. If any one can
help I would appreciate it;
SOURCE: p.303 "Biographical and Historical Record of Jay County, Indiana,"
Chicago: Lewis Publishing Company, 1887. Reprinted by Mayhill Publications of
Knightstown, Indiana, 1974. This is the reprinted Jay County section out of
the original combined 1887 History of Jay and Blackford counties.
I.G. BARRICK, one of the active and enterprising citizens of Wayne Township,
was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, February 20, 1829. His father, Isaac
BARRICK, was born in Londoun County, Virginia, and was of German ancestry. He
was a soldier in the war of 1812. He married Mary GLASS, a native of
Columbiana County, Ohio, and to them were born twelve children. The mother of our
subject is still living in Rice County, Minnesota, aged eighty years.
I.G.BARRICK, the subject of this sketch, was reared to the avocation of a
farmer, and received his education in the subscription schools of that early
day. He was united in marriage January 23, 1850, to Miss Sarah RISH, who was
born in Columbiana County, Ohio, April 7, 1831, a daughter of Simeon and Ann (
BADGER ) RISH, her father being of German and her mother of Irish ancestry.
They were also the parents of twelve children. To Mr. and Mrs. BARRICK have
been born six children -- Ann Eliza, William B., John C., Charles R., Martha
Jane and George M. Mr. BARRICK remained in his native State until 1858, when he
came with his family to Jay County, Indiana, and for a time lived on rented
land. He subsequently bought forty acres of heavily timbered land in Wayne
Township, which he cleared and improved. In 1878 he settled on his present farm,
which had been improved before he located there. In politics Mr. BARRICK is
a Democrat. He is a worthy and
consistent member of the German Baptist church, in which he has served as
minister in the second degree for many years, and has been an active worker in
the cause of his Master. He is a man of strict integrity, honorable in all
his dealings, and is respected by all who know him.
