Henry Irvin Barron, son of Mr. and Mrs. David Austin Barron, was born in Somerset, county. Pa., on December 16, 1867. When nine years of age, he moved with his parents to Iowa, the family settling on a farm near Dewar and five miles east of Waterloo. He spent all his life in this neighborhood, the farm on which he was living at the time of his death being purchased at the time of his marriage.
He was married eighteen years ago to Miss Ida Barclay and they had six children, the oldest 17 years of age, the youngest a year old. They are Ralph, Gladys, Glenn, Guy, Harold and Victor.
Besides his wife and children, Mr. Baron leaves two brothers and three sisters to mourn his death, his parents being dead. Two brothers and one sister live in Waterloo: S. E. Barron, employed at Meisch & Rath's store; J. F. Barron, clerk at Wilson & Braden's; Mrs. S. R. Brooks, who resides at 408 East Eighth Street. Another sister, Mrs. F. J. Folk lives north of Waterloo and Mrs. J. H. Rigdon near Dewar.
Mr. Barron always attended the Methodist church at Dewar of which Rev. C. Halm of Raymond is now the pastor. He was also a member of the Modern Woodmen lodge and that order will assist at the funeral.
The last rites will be held from the home near Dewar Sunday afternoon at one o'clock. Rev. Hahn of Raymond will officiate and the Modern Woodmen will have appropriate services at the grave. Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery.
