A Revision

Additional research into Nelson Barbour's childhood shows that he is not the son of Friend Barbour (also spelled Barber), but the grandson. This is established by an article appearing in the Syracuse, New York, Post of January 16, 1909. A photo of his half-uncle accompanies the article, but it is not reporduceable.

Friend Barbour had sixteen children. Which of these was Nelson's parent remains unknown.
