I haven't identified a picture of Hugh Barr Jr. yet. Hugh was born in 1883. He became a professional just like his father did except Hugh Jr. chose medicine. He earned his medical degree from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, class of 1907. According to volume 11, 1911 of the Vanderbilt Quarterly, Hugh had been practicing in Dresden but in 1911 he moved his practice to Nashville, TN. Hugh never married.
Throughout the census records the family of four lived together either in Dresden or Nashville TN. Leonora was the first to pass away. She died in 1914 from atherosclerosis. Hugh Sr. died in 1936 from bronchiectasis. Hugh Jr died in 1952 from a myocardial infarction Bessie died in 1967. All of the Barr's are interred in Sunset Cemetery in Dresden, Tennessee.
