OBITUARY: The New York Times, Published 17 Nov, 1915
Herbert BARBER, President of BARBER & CO, Inc. late of 17 Battery Place, Englewood died at the Presbyterian Hospital, New York of 'pneumonia' following surgery performed on 7 Nov 1915. He was 68 years old. He was born in London, England in 1847 and emigrated to New York, arriving in Dec 1880 with his wife Sarah POSTLEWAITE [sic] and four children. He was employed as Shipping Agent representing Patton,Vickers & Co. who operated The Monarch Steamship Line between New York and London. He remained in this employ until 1887 when the company failed. He and his brother James BARBER soon established a Ship Brokers business which proved to be and was acknowledged as being 'the finest of its type'. The business was so successful that the firm was incorporated in 1902 as BARBER & CO, Inc. and by 1914 was responsible for operating lines to Bordeaux, South Africa, South America, India, China, Japan and Philippines whilst also representing the Union-Castle and Clan Lines. In 1914 the firm chartered extra steamers and entered the New York and Australia business. He and his family were constantly aboard the companies ships traveling extensively between the United States, Ireland, Great Britain and Europe in his capacity as company President. Herbert and his wife and family made their home in Englewood, New Jersey where he resided for over 30 years. He is survived by his wife of 40 years Sarah BARBER(POSTLEWAITE) and 12 children, eight of whom were born in New Jersey.
The size of the Barber fleet is demonstrated in The New York Times article reporting the wedding of Herbert and Sarah's daughter, Margaret Alice Barber, on 16 Sep 1903: "The Barber fleet in New York Harbour, consisting of a dozen steamers and half as many sailing vessels, were all gayly decorated in honor of the event".
Tyler Barber writes: The Herbert Barber Memorial Building was once located at 129 Broad Street, New York City, but no longer exists. It was the first of many buildings to be constructed as part the Broad Street Hospital, created in 1915. After many name changes, it was known until just recently as the New York Downtown Hospital. According to Wikipedia entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Manhattan_Hospital “Following a full merger in 2013 with New York-Presbyterian Hospital, it was renamed New York-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital.” The current address is 170 William Street, New York, NY 10038.

He attended London schools until he was fifteen years of age, when he entered the service of Patton, Vickers & Co., a London shipping firm, where his older brother, Herbert Barber, was also employed. Herbert Barber was sent to New York city in 1880 as American representative of the company and in 1883 the two brothers went into business for themselves....Barber was married in Liverpool, England, May 7, 1882, to Catherine, daughter of Thomas Gandy, a master mariner of that city, and they had seven children:...Ada, who married William W.

Hilary Darque wrote in an email 13 Oct 2017 that:
Alice was deserted by her husband, died tragically in a fire at Crosby lighthouse and was buried in a public grave. I have several newspaper accounts of the tragedy.
Crosby lighthouse was near Hightown on the northern edge of Liverpool Bay (Liverpool). The lighthouse was abandoned after a disastrous fire in 1898. It is described thus:
"A fierce north westerly gale on 2nd February 1898 blew in the windows of the lantern room causing the five strong mirror lamps to explode with the burning oil setting fire to the wooden lantern room and floor. The burning dripping oil set fire to each floor in succession. Despite the close proximity to the sea, no water, except the domestic supply, was available to extinguish the fire and within 15 minutes the lighthouse resembled a blast furnace. The lighthouse was totally destroyed and three people lost their lives."
and
"It was Robert Buckley..... together with his wife; a lady visitor and a dog, that perished in the Crosby lighthouse fire of 1898."
Alice was the lady visitor. (Source: http://www.mycetes.co.uk/a/page31.html)
The story was widely reported in newspapers, the most graphic of which appeared in the The Police Illustrated News.
