      Biographical information below is provided by find-a-grave contributor Jen Snoots:

      Daughter of William and Rebecca (Thompson) Barney, was born in New Haven, Conn. Attended the school in charge of Mrs. Garfield in New Haven, preparatory to going to Troy Seminary, where she was a pupil in 1828. She commended herself to Mrs. Willard by excellence of scholarship and deportment. A letter from Mrs. Willard to Miss Barney, which appears in Dr. Lord's "Life of Emma Willard," bears witness to her motherly and affectionate interest in those who were placed under her care.

      In 1829 Miss Barney married Elihu L. Mix. Ten children were born of this marriage of whom four are now living [in 1898]
      The greater part of Mrs. Mix's life was spent in New York City, where her natural endowments and her accomplishments made her a social star. She died in the home of her childhood in Westville, near New Haven, in 1881. To her, death was the peaceful ending of a happy and well-rounded life; to her surviving family it was a bereavement that robbed them of the joy of her loving and beautiful presence.
      A surviving daughter writes : "I think many who knew my mother's ability, wondered that she never took rank among the literary workers; but the care of a family of ten children was absorbing, and she chose rather to find her occupations and interests in the line of her affections." (from Emma Willard and Her Pupils, or Fifty Years of Troy Female Seminary, ed. by Mrs. A.W. Fairbanks; pub. by Mrs. Russell Sage, New York, 1898)
