AMOS BARR, general insurance agent, Springfield. While Mr; Amos Barr has not been a resident of Springfield as long as some others, he is most thoroughly identified with its interests. Born in Lancaster Co;, Penn., in 1810, he came to Lebanon, Ohio, upon attaining his majority; removed to Cincinnati in 1858, and to Springfield in 1865. In 1834, he married Miss Martha A. Smith, of Strasburg, Penn;, and of seven children born him, four daughters and one son are living, to wit, Mrs. Mary Winger, Mrs; Ann E; Smith, both of Springfield; Mrs; Martha B. Sperry, of Nashville, Tenn;; Mrs; Emma B; Scholl, of Baltimore; and Benjamin A. Barr, a resident of Chattanooga, Tenn;, making a family group of seventeen when all together. The venerable subject of this sketch has been for many years identified with insurance interests, having been, since 1863, agent of that mammoth and honorable institution, the Cincinnati Mutual Life Insurance Company, with its $50,000,000 assets, and Mr. Barr has paid out to beneficiaries in Springfield alone over $100,000, and numbers among his policy holders several hundred of Springfield's best men; he is also privileged agent of the Northwestern Mutual Life of Milwaukee, and regular agent of the Firemen's Fund of California, Farmer's Fire of York, Penn;, and Amazon Fire of Cincinnati; Mr; Barr is one of those benign, courteous men, whom to know is to respect and admire; quiet, unostentatious, fatherly, and the embodiment of true innate gentility.
