Ladies and gentlemen, when it comes to the Barrere boys in the newspaper business, we’ve reached the final Barrere, so to speak.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in our recent discourse, we’ve examined the life and times of the Barrere boys in the newspaper business. In the 1880s, Col. George Washington Barrere (1831-1913), a Civil War veteran, bought a pair of Highland County newspapers and merged them to form the Hillsboro News-Herald.

    "The boyhood life of Col. Barrere was similar to that of other boys of those pioneer days. He received his education in the common schools and finished at the Hillsboro Academy under the instruction of Prof. Isaac Sams. When a young man, he came to Hillsboro to live, clerking for a time in the store of the late James W. Patterson and later being employed in the bank of which his uncle, Benjamin Barrere, was president."

    Ladies and gentlemen, to me at least, there’s something nostalgic, almost romantic, about a family running a business for seven decades – but that’s exactly what the Barrere family in Hillsboro did beginning more than a century ago.

    Ladies and gentlemen, let’s pause belatedly for an important public service announcement. Do you know the Highland House Museum has a library? Don’t feel bad. I didn’t know there was one, either, until fairly recently – and I’m vice chairman of the Highland County Historical Society’s Board of Trustees.

    George Washington Barrere was born Dec. 21, 1831 and grew up in the New Market area. By the way, New Market was the county seat of Highland County before Hillsboro, which was called Hillsborough back in the day.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last week, we had been chatting about the life and times of Bebee Barrere, a young journalist and son of Civil War Veteran and newspaper owner Col. George Washington Barrere, who sadly passed away at in 1889 at the age of 26.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when the News-Herald was formed in 1886, Col. George Washington Barrere and his young son, Bebee, were co-owners of the Hillsboro publication. Sadly for the Barrere family, that partnership was short-lived as Bebee passed away nearly 129 years ago in 1889 at the tender age of 26.

    Ladies and gentlemen, George Washington Barrere (1770-1838) was a Highland County pioneer who settled in the New Market area in 1802. As we mentioned last week, Barrere was a state senator, landowner, businessman, postmaster, commissioner, surveyor, judge and soldier.
