From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Noyes Barber (April 28, 1781 – January 3, 1844) was a United States Representative from Connecticut. He was born in Groton. He attended the common schools and engaged in mercantile pursuits. He was a major of the Eighth Connecticut Regiment in the War of 1812 where he was detailed to defend the coast towns during the blockade by the British Fleet.

Barber was a member of the Connecticut State House of Representatives in 1818. He was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the Seventeenth Congress, an Adams-Clay Republican to the Eighteenth, an Adams candidate to the Nineteenth and Twentieth, and an Anti-Jacksonian to the Twenty-first through the Twenty-third Congresses (March 4, 1821 – March 3, 1835). He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1834 to the Twenty-fourth Congress. He resumed mercantile pursuits and was also a member of all Whig conventions from 1836. He died in Groton on January 3, 1844 and was buried in Starr Cemetery.

Barber was the uncle of both Edwin Barbour Morgan and Christopher Morgan. Both of these men served as Representatives in the United States Congress.
