Born in Sandusky, Ohio, Barney married the daughter of prominent Philadelphia financier Jay Cooke. Following the collapse of his father-in-law's Philadelphia banking house, in December 1873, Charles D. Barney and Jay Cooke, Jr. as a minority partner, formed the stock brokerage firm, Chas. D. Barney & Co.[1]

In 1938, Charles D. Barney & Co. and Edward B. Smith & Co. merged to form Smith Barney & Co.[1]

Barney died in 1945 at the age of 101 at Elkins Park, Pennsylvania near Philadelphia.
