He was celebrated as the oldest man to have lived in Geneva NY.
From the HISTORY OF ONTARIO COUNTY; compiled by Lewis Cass Aldrich; edited by George S. Conover; 1893: "David Barron, Seneca, was born in Northumberland county, England, August 15, 1800, came to the United States with his parents in 1801, being less than a year old, and the family located on the turnpike road in the northeastern part of the town. He was educated in the schools of that day, inured to hard work, and became an intelligent farmer, even into his ninety-third year. March 22, 1827, he married Sarah Shadbolt, of Caledonia, Livingston county; they had five children: Martha, George, John, Mary, and David W., all now deceased. His wife died February 20, 1882. Mr. Barron's father, William, was born at the old home in England, March 25, 1756, and married Margery Wilkinson, of Newcastle in his native country. Their four children were: William, Mary, David and Thomas. The father died July 14, 1833, and the mother June 6, 1855. David Barron has always borne the reputation of a modest, industrious, thrifty, and honest man."
From Geneva Daily Times 4 October 1895
Announcement is made of the death of David Barron at his home in Seneca last night, at the age of 95 years, after an illness of eight weeks. Up to within four years of his death, he had not been sick a day, and was always distinguished for his robust health. He was well-known in Geneva, for he had lived 58 years on the farm where he died. Mr. Barron was born in Northumberland, England, on August 15th, 1800, and during the same year came to America. With the exception of 14 years spent in Caledonia and Bath, he has lived in this vicinity. In 1829, he was married to Mrs. Sarah Shaddock in Scottsville, Monroe county, who died fourteen years ago. He was the father of four children, none of whom are living, and is survived by several relations, one of whom is W. J. Barron of this place. The deceased leaves a large estate. The time of the funeral service is not yet been announced. Mr. Barron was a man most highly esteemed in the neighborhood, and had lived here longer than any foreign-born known in the state. He has a large acquaintance by whom his death will be lamented.
