Barber, Ira Coffins, was born in Whitehall, August 8. 1855, and came to Saratoga Springs in 1870 and began the battle of life as a poor boy, but by honesty and a clear head and willing hands he has become one of the reliable and progressive business men of Saratoga Springs. He worked .for the National Express Co. for five years, clerked for some time, and for two years was with W. F. Howard, wholesale and retail woodenware, before entering into the partnership of Lewis & Barber, which was ultimately dissolved and Mr. Barber assumed the whole business, which he has since conducted with great success. In 1881 Mr. Barber married Annie N. Brennan, and they have three daughters: Jennie, Minnie and Lillian. Mr. Barber's parents were John and Adeline H. Barber. His father died when he was an infant and so at an early age he had to rely upon himself and without any outside aid has become a prominent business man.
