(A) The father of Seth Barger was Lowree D. Barger, a Union soldier who died in Libby Prison in Richmond, VA, during the Civil War when Seth would have been a young child.
(B) It was unclear if Seth Barger had a brother, a son, or both, by the name of Clark Barger from the usual source for this family, namely, the A. L. Barger journal, but the date of birth for the brother is shown as 1843 (far too early condisering that the father, Lowree D. Barger, was born in 1837). A. L. Barger also indicates the date of birth of Seth's son as 1886, which would have been an appropriate age.
(C) On 15 Jan 2000, Jack Quinn Dennis, a great-grandson of Clark Loweree Bargar/Barger, provided information regarding post-Civil War era generations.
(D) Spellings of the names Barger/Bargar and Lowree/Loweree evolved over the years. (E) This family is descended from the Putnam Valley Barger family of New York.
