I'm a mmember of the Barber Family. But my story is a bit unusual. I was born in Detroit MI.
to James and Dorothy Barber so I thought. When I was ten years old my father told me I wasn't his daughter. My mother Dorothy Adcock Barber was in the kitchen. She came out with anger on her pretty face. They talked for a long time. As for me I was in shock I ran to my room and hid in my closet crying. Nothing more was said to me. As mother and dad had a way of pretending everything was just fine. After my father passed away my mother told me I was adopted. James Barber was my uncle. they had both wanted a child very much. I found out my birth mother was James Barber's niece. Channing Evans. I always thought she was my first cousin her mother Bea Barber who I thought was my aunt was actually my Grandmother, I didn't learn the truth until I was forty-five. I'm proud to be a member of the Barber family but
all of this caused alot of pain and sorrow, I recently had my DNA tested as I don't know who my birth father is I thought this could shed some light on the subject of course it couldn't give his name but it could give me some ethnic background, I found out I am 26% middle eastern
something that came as a big surprise. The Barber's are not middle eastern so my unknown father had to be. If any of you Barber's have any information concerning me I would appreciate any and all.

My x husband was born David W. Barber He was born Dec. 18 1960 or 61 he had a brother we called him Jerry Barber I believe his birth name was Gerald or Jerald Lee Barber they had two sisters Karen and Teressa Barber the were all given up for adoption they all were to young to know what happened. David W.WAS ADOPTED AT 18 YEARS OLD. Now he is David W. Brennan. Karen and Teressa who were just babies were adopted right away. Jerry Barber believed to one day reunite with his birth family never allowed himself to be adopted. I once looked at an old birth certificate of David Barber. It was hard to read but believe the birth name was Jenavieve Barber. I don't remember the fathers name. Any help in putting this family together would be wonderful. Thank you
