the death at Miami of Mr. J. M. Barco.
Mr. Barco was a resident of Marion
county for many and of Ocala for sev several

and a good neighbor, and held the
friendship and esteem 'of all who knew

where he died.
It is a source' of satisfaction, how

with him when he passed away.
The funeral took place this morn morning

J. M. Jackson, in Miami and interment
was made in one of the cemeteries of
that city.
We are indebted to the Clearwater
Sun for the following sketch of Mr.
Barco's life:
James M. Barco was born about
twelve miles south of Lake City, in
Columbia county, Florida, in August,
1850, and was a son of Joseph P. and
Carolyn (Brooks) Barco, who were
born in the vicinity of St. Marys, Ga.
The family is of French Huguenot
origin and was founded in Georgia in
colonial days. The grandfather was
Daniel Barco, a native of Georgia,
who on removing to Florida took up
his abode in the vicinity of Provi Providence,

The grandfather of James M. Barco
was a soldier in the war of 1812 and
also participated in the first Seminole
war. He died in Marion county at the
age of seventy-five. His son, Joseph
P. Barco, father of James M. Barco,
was but five years of age when in
1832 he accompanied his father to
Florida. He was therefore practically
reared in this state. He later became a
resident of Marion county where he
filled the office of county tax collec
tor in the early 50's. ne took an ac

At the time of the civil war he of
fered his services to the Confederacy,
going to the front in 1862 as first
lieutenant in Captain Gary's Company
of the Ninth Florida. He was ill and
was captured at Baldwin when Sey
mour started from Jacksonville, and
he died-in prison at Fort Delaware
before the close of The war. Ilia widow
survived him and passed away on the
plantation in Marion county. In their
family were seven children.
James M. Barco was the eldest of
the family and jupon him devolved the
duties and responsibilities incident to
the management of the household and
the support of his younger brothers
and sisters. He resided in Marion
county for. seventeen years and for
two years engaged in teaching school.
Following his marriage he turned his
attention to .merchandising at Crystal

cousin. After a brief period he dis

In 1870 Mr. Barco was united in
marriage to Miss Susan Niblack, a
native of Florida, a daughter of Sam Samuel

and one of a prominent family. To
Mr. and Mrs. Barco have been born

died; Jessie, who is the widow of S.
L. Patterson, who was an attorney at
Miami; Newcomb, a prominent farmer
in Marion county at the estate known
as Sunny Slope; Sue, the youngest
daughter, who is assistant county

Samuel J.. county judge of Dade

His brother B. B. Barco has been
associated with him at Clearwater in
the real estate business and together
they owned a large orange grove. He
has two sisters in Ocala, Mrs. J. W.
Hood and Mrs. W. K. Zewadswi, and
another sister in Dunnellon.
