    JOSEPH BARBER, M. D., physician and surgeon at Marathon City, was born at Charlestown, Wis., March 24, 1864, and is a son of Joseph and Frances (Demouth) Barber. The father of Dr. Barber was born in New York and became a shipbuilder and when he came to Wisconsin located on a farm in Calumet County on which he lived for thirty two years, moving then to Clark County, where his death occurred in his seventy-second year. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity and was buried with Masonic honors at Greenwood, Wis. He was also an Odd Fellow. A Republican in politics he had served in public offices both in Calumet and Clark counties. He and wife were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She was a native of New Jersey but was married in New York and died in Clark County, Wis., when aged seventy years.



    Dr. Joseph Barber was the fifth born in a family of eight children. One brother, who is a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and of the University of Chicago, is a Presbyterian minister. Another brother, who is principal of the schools of Withee, Wis., has taught school for thirty-four years, and Dr. Barber had two sisters who taught school, all the family being intellectually gifted. After completing the public school course at Chilton, Wis., Joseph Barber spent one year in the University of Illinois and then entered the Kansas City Medical College, where he was graduated in the class of 1896. Prior to coming to Marathon City on April 7, 1906 Dr. Barber practiced at Greenwood, in Clark County, and one year at Collins, was health officer at Greenwood and for two years county coroner of Clark County, and while in Clark county served as the first president of the Metallic Screen Company. When he entered into practice at Marathon City he succeeded Dr. Taughter. On June 1, 1910, he remodeled the old city hall and has utilized it ever since as a drug store, the family residence being on N. Main street. He is examiner for the Germania Lodge, E. F. U., for the K. O. T. M., and for a number of insurance organizations, while his private practice extends eighteen miles both north and south of the village, sixteen miles west and eight miles east. He is an ex-member of the Wisconsin State Board of Health and belongs to county, state and national medical bodies.



    On September 1, 1899, Dr. Barber was married to Miss Ella Webb, of Galesville, Wis., a daughter of George and Mary (Hammond) Webb, the former of whom was born at Bedford, England, and the latter at Barndydum, England. Mrs. Barber is the youngest of their three children. Dr. and Mrs. Barber have one daughter, Mildred, who attends school. Dr. Barber belongs to the Methodist Episcopal and Mrs. Barber to the Presbyterian Church. She is secretary of the E. F. U., and belongs to the Rebekahs and in 1907 took the Grand Lodge of Ashland degrees of Assembly and Chivalry. Dr. Barber is a progressive Republican. At the time the handsome school building was erected at Marathon City he was chairman of the committee in securing the public school. He is a stockholder in the Marathon Telephone Company and in the Marathon Zigler Hamburg Company, and fraternally is identified with the M. W. of A., the E. F. U., the G. N. G., and has taken the Canton high degree of Odd Fellowship and is one of the committee of the Wisconsin Encampment.

    the confusion about Joseph L. Barber Jr. wife if it was Ella Webb or Ella Turley. On a article about Joseph Barber Jr. it list Ella parents as George & Mary (Hammond) Webb from Galesville, Wisconsin. Then I found a marriage of James Turley to a Mrs. George Webb in July 21, 1881 then I also found a census with Mary being widowed in 1880 and has a daughter named Ella who is 1, so she was born in 1879 making her 20 when she was married. Sounds right. She is a Webb, but also went by Turley.

    Surnames: Barber, Abel
    ----Source: Internet
    ----Mildred Barber (1902 – 29 Sept. 1976)
    Born to Dr. Joseph and Ella Barber in Greenwood, a town in central Wisconsin, young Mildred grew up around politics because her father was a state senator. After teaching two years in rural Marathon County, she became her father’s housekeeper at the state capital of Madison. A progressive Republican, she was elected secretary of the state platform committee, and friends soon persuaded her to run for the Wisconsin Assembly. After a vigorous campaign, she won her race by appealing to the party’s liberal wing. Mildred Barber and Joseph Barber thus became the nation’s first father/daughter legislative team.
    Her legislative interests initially tracked those of her physician father, including the distribution of iodine to children who lived in areas where that was naturally deficient. As she grew into her own person, though, focus broadened to other issues, including especially prison reform.
    Representative Barber made the mistake of not campaigning hard enough in 1926 and lost her reelection. She returned to teaching prior to marrying Otto Abel in 1928. They had one son, and she did not return to public office. Mildred Barber Abel died on September 29, 1976, and was buried in Wausau’s Pine Grove Cemetery.

    Mildred Barber Abel
    The State Assembly's First Women Members


    Name: Barber Abel, Mildred Author: Bill Hart Background: Mildred Barber was born in Greenwood, Wisconsin on January 9, 1902, the daughter of State Senator Dr. Joseph and Ella (Webb) Barber of Mosinee. She grew up in a household of politics, often traveling with her father on campaign trips around the state. In 1924 she was employed as a housekeeper for her father in Madison when she was recruited to become a candidate for the state Assembly. Just three years earlier, in 1921, women’s suffrage had become law. She ran a vigorous primary campaign in 1925 as a Progressive and defeated her opponent, a fellow Progressive. At age 23, she held two significant firsts: she became one of Wisconsin’s first three women elected to the state legislature; and, she was the first woman to serve in the Wisconsin Legislature at the same time with her father, a member of the Wisconsin Senate. It was the first instance of this kind in the United States. Miss Barber always claimed that she won because her opponent was a Prohibitionist, which was an unpopular stand in Marathon County. Accomplishments: When the three women, Miss Barber, Helen Brooks of Wautoma and Helen Thompson of Park Falls, first arrived in Madison to claim their seats in the Legislature, they caused great consternation because the chief clerk of the Assembly did not know how to address them. Although she served for only one term, Miss Barber was a skillful politician and sponsored several important bills, the first of which was a proposal that the eugenics law be broadened to include women as well as men. Although it did not pass under her sponsorship, it did pass in the next session. Another of her proposals was a bill to remove criminal jurisdiction from the justices of the peace to the municipal courts. Still another example of important bills at that time was the issuance of iodine tablets to school children. At the time, the state health department fought the bill, but a few years later sponsored a similar bill themselves. She and her father were appointed by Governor John Blaine to the visiting committee of Penal Institutions. They were part of a 6-member committee who were to visit all the penal institutions in the state and report their findings. Years later, she always contended that that appointment was the most interesting role she played as a legislator. She was also the first woman in the state to attend a platform convention, and was elected secretary of the 1924 Republican Platform Convention. At the end of her one term, she ran without campaigning and predictably lost. She was a Progressive Republican like her father, and an admirer of Robert LaFollette, serving as a member of the honor guard at his funeral. When asked her opinion of LaFollette, she said, “Had Bob LaFollette become president of the United States, our history today undoubtedly would have been much better.” Miss Barber taught school for a year then married Otto Abel on October 31, 1928. Together they had one son and Mr. Abel had a daughter from a first marriage. While she never again held a public office, she focused on being a homemaker and she continued with her interest in public affairs. Mildred Barber Abel died on September 29, 1976. She is buried in Pine Grove Cemetery in Wausau, WI. Occupation: State Assembly Representative
