About Barbara Walker Rather

Wife of John T. Rather and daughter of John & Mary McClellan

Southern Advocate November 3, 1826

Died 25th instant last month at Somerville, Morgan County, Mrs. Barbara W. Rather, consort of John T. Rather, Esq. In the death of this amiable woman, society has sustained an irreparable loss. She was a dutiful child, an affectionate wife, a tender mother, a humane mistress and a kind neighbor. She has left a husband and an infant child, together with a numerous train of relatives and friends to mourn her loss.

The obit published in 1881 for Barbra's husband shows her middle name was Walker. You will find in in the next to the last paragraph. Walker was her mother's maiden name. Contributor: Brenda White Broadway (47175704) •
