Barbara was born on 31 March 1863 to Byron Kaye and Ellen Smith in Woodstock, Oxford, Ontario, Canada. She was the fifth child of seven born to this couple. There were 3 girls and 4 boys born to Byron and Ellen.
Barbara's siblings where:
Margaret Fischer (Kaye) Burgess (b. 1858- d.?)
David Smith Kaye (b.1859-d.1946)
Byron Kaye (b. 1860-d. 1883)
Rev. Alexander Smith Kaye (b. 1861-d. 1952)
Anna Gordon (Kaye) Kaye, Thompson, Horn, Park (d. 1865-d. 1949)
Rev. James Ross Kaye (b. 1865- d. 1940)
When Barbara was but 3 year old her father was killed in a boiler accident at a mill in Woodstock. Leaving her mother Ellen with five children. Shortly after his death Ellen delivered twins.
Life would be hard of Barbara as a child she would be sent to live with family and then to stay twelves years with a women in town that taught her all the things a young lady needs to know. She did get to see her siblings and family on occasion, but I am sure it wasn't as much as she would have liked.
Eventually Ellen would move to Chicago, to run a boarding house as a means to get her family back together. Three years later Barbara would follow them to Chicago, where she helped her mother run the boarding house.
