The marriage of James BARBER and Miss Mary L. BICKETT was celebrated at the bride’s home, her father’s farm, near Jasper, April 13, 1852, and not quite three years afterward, December 27, 1854, they removed to the home where Mrs. BARBER still lives. Mrs. BARBER was born May 6, 1833, in Jasper Township and is the daughter of John BICKETT, who came to Ohio from Pennsylvania in 1818, settling in Xenia Township, this county. The paternal grandparents, John and Elizabeth BICKETT, were natives of Ireland and of Scotch-Irish descent, and settled in Pennsylvania in the year 1797. The early progenitors of the family were Protestants as their descendants have uniformly been. Grandfather BICKETT upon coming to America settled in Pennsylvania where he spent the remainder of his life. His wife subsequently joined her children in this county and died about 1839 or 1840 having attained to the advanced age of eighty years. The BICKETTS in coming to America were on the ocean twenty weeks.

John BICKETT was married in 1821 to Miss Peggy DEAN, daughter of Daniel DEAN, who removed to Ohio from Lexington, Ky., at a very early day. The maiden name of his wife was Elizabeth STEELE, also of Kentucky.
