1. HENRY2 BARLOW (Thomas1) was born c1726 in Caroline Co Virginia, and died c1815 in Garrard Co Kentucky

He married JUDITH

Rhio's Graphic's  Bunches of Barlows   Pages 3 - 5

Henry Barlow may possibly have been the oldest son of  Thomas Barlow, but the fact has not been proven. One source says he was born in 1726 in Caroline County, but Caroline County was not formed until 1728. The date may be correct, but a more likely choice of counties of birth is Hanover.

Louisa County Deed  Book C, 1759 - 1765,  shows that on 27 May 1760,  Henry Barlow witnessed a deed for James Coleman of Orange County, who may be his father-in-law.   Henry named his oldest son James.    The Coleman deed was also witnessed by James Meriwether (1729-1792),  a great uncle of the explorer, Meriwether Lewis, who was in Albemarle County.

On 19 November 1761, James Coleman, gent., of  Orange Co. sold to Henry Barlow, and John Carlton, planters of Orange County,  400 acres in Albemarle County on the upper side of Chestnut Mountain, the waters of Pritty's Creek, adjoining William Cradock and  [John] Dowell,  the land to be divided between the said Barlow and Carlton by a specified line.   The witnesses  were James Meriwether, Ambrose Coleman, and Daniel Farguson, John Vaughn, James Coleman, Jr., and Thomas Jones.

See Copy of the orginial document: Coleman vs. Barlow

Louisa County Virginia  Deed book A, page 56-69 shows:

..14 March 1742-43 Phillip Wilson of Fredericksville Par., Louisa Co., Planter, to James Coleman of St. Thomas Par., Orange Co, Gent., 29 pounds, 10 shillings, currt. money, 400 acres on  west side of  Little Mountain in  afsd. par ...... William  Craddock's corner, granted to Timothy Dalton by patent;  by him conveyed to said Wilson by deed proved in Hanover Co., by Joseph Martin, and Ambrose Joshua Smith.

This is the 400 acres later purchased by John Carlton and Henry Barlow.   The Chestnut Mountain is a part of the range called the Little Mountains or the Southwest Mountains, which extend from Orange County, southward to form the present dividing line between Louisa and Albemarle Counties.   The Barlow-Carlton tract was on or near Turkey Run, which flows into the east side of Pritty's Creek. The land of  James Isbell,  Thomas Land, and William Sumpter lay a little to the north, closer to the Orange County line.   The fact that Henry Barlow and John Carlton purchased land together indicates a family connection --  perhaps they married sisters, or perhaps Henry Barlow's wife was a Carlton prior to her marriage.  John Carlton's wife was Elizabeth Wallace. From the foregoing, it would appear  that the Barlows and the Carltons were in Orange County before settling in Albemarle, a little south of the Orange line.  Orange County Order Book 6, page 675, dated 1762,  records a court case in  which Ambrose Coleman vs. Henry Barlow and John Calton (sic) which was dismissed with the  defendants agreeing to pay the plaintiff his cash.   However, no Orange County deeds have been found for either John Carlton or Henry Barlow. Elizabeth Carlton, widow of John Carlton, and her son, Thomas, sold  the land on Pritty's Creek 10 March 1778 as given in Albemarle County Deed Book 7, pg 157-158:

....between Thomas Calton of the Province of Carolina and his mother, Elizabeth Calton, of County of Albemarle,....and Daniel Farguson,  of the County of Albemarle .... dividing line  between Thomas  Calton and  Henry Barlow ... Richard  Dowell's  line .....  Ambrose Dowell's line .... Daniel Farguson's line .... to John White's line ... to dividing line between Henry Barlow and Thomas Calton....

This would  indicate that Henry Barlow remained in Albemarle County after the Carltons  moved to North Carolina.  Further proof is found in the 1782 Albemarle County Property Tax Records which shows Henry Barlow with 3 males over 21, one slave, 10 cattle and 3 horses.  The same tax list shows James Barlow with one male over 21, one slave, 4 cattle, and 3 horses. 
The 1785 State Census of Albemarle County Virginia shows:

Henry Barlow -  5 white souls - 1 dwelling  -3 other buildings James Barlow -  5 white souls - 1 dwelling  5 other buildings

This census does not list blacks but "other buildings" includes slaves cabins; the other buildings probably included  one such cabin, as most householders were listed with one or two "other buildings" -- probably a barn, smoke-house, or crib.  The 1787 tax list shows Henry, James, and Henry, Jr.

Henry Barlow sold 213 acres of Albemarle County land to Thomas Walker, Jr., and 68 acres to James Barlow in 1787 [Book 9, page 467].   James Barlow and his wife, Lucy, sold  the 68 acres to Madison Breedlove of  Orange County   [Book 9page 467],  which was witnessed by Henry  Barlow, Jr.    It  is thought that this may have been the same time when Henry moved to Kentucky.

Dorothy Wulfeck states in Marriages of  Some Virginia Residents, 1607 - 1800, Volume I,  that James Barlow of Albemarle County married on 13 January 1780  Lucy Edwards of  Louisa County.   Louisa County Will  Book 3, page 386, shows James Barlow as a purchaser at the estate sale of Samuel Carr on 11 April 1791.   Henry Barlow had a son named James.

Albemarle County Deed Book 9 page 372,  indentured dated 25 August 1788 refers to Elizabeth Carton, wife of  Lewis Carton, as the daughter of  the late Joseph Eve, and Mary Ayers, wife of Robert Ayers, as the widow of Joseph Eve.   The deed was witnessed by Henry Barlow, Jr. and Thomas Robbins of Wilkes County, North Carolina.  Henry Barlow had a son named Henry, Jr.

George Carlton says that Henry's Barlow's wife, Judith, was a Livingston, but he gives no basis for his statement.    Poe suggests Judith may have been a daughter of  James Coleman or a sister of either John Carlton, or John's wife,  Elizabeth (nee Wallace). Given the lack of information, the only definite thing which can be stated is that the maiden name of Henry's wife is not known at this time. Note:  one other researcher shows Judith's maiden name to be Land. Other sources:

From Mary Truitt Vermiglio at Rootsweb World Connect; her gedcom titled: Truitt and Branson Ancestors:

Henry sold about half of his estate to English emigrants. He did not put on quite as much style as his father but still loved his race horses and hunting. He was a devout member of his father's old church. (Particular Baptist Church)

Children of Henry Barlow and Judith are:

ii. MILDRED BARLOW  born 1758, and died 1842, did not marry
iii.
THOMAS BARLOW  born 10 September 1760, and died 30 January 1825
Some researchers say he married Susan Childs Isbell, while others say she was the wife of Thomas Barlow, son of Reverend John Barlow.

See:  Thomas Barlow and Susan Childs Isbell

According to Maude Crowe, 'Descendants of First Families of Virginia and Maryland, Thomas, son of Henry Barlow who died c1814 in Garrard Co Kentucky. Janette O'Boyle has traced Thomas to Illinois and Tennessee, where he married Elizabeth Nicholas. Along with other researchers, that family has been traced to the present. See: Thomas Barlow and Elizabeth Nicholas     DNA testing shows a 1 marker difference in the 25 marker test, and 2 marker difference in the 37 marker test between the persons testing for Bunches of Barlow's (Kit #21897) and Thomas Barlow and Elizabeth Nicholas, (Kit #32008).  Myself, not having enough knowledge of the DNA markers, cannot determine if this is a close enough match to show a close relationship, or a more distant one.  If anyone more knowledgeable of the DNA testing might be able to draw a better conclusion as to what these mis-matched markers might mean, please do not hesitate to explain.

Edited by William Henry Perrin O.L. Baskin & Co., Chicago, 1882         Part I

Samuel S. Shepard, jeweler, Georgetown; is a grandson of Samuel Shepard, who was born in New Middlesex County, Massachusetts, in 1765.  He emigrated to  Kentucky before she became a State, riding, it is said, through on horseback.  He settled at Georgetown when there were only a half dozen houses in the place, building the first tavern ever erected in the place, which was headquarters and a rendezvous for the pioneer hunters of territorial times.  He married Miss Frankey Barlow, March 27, 1792, at Georgetown.   She was born in 1765 and this is one of the earliest marriages of which we have any record. Samuel Shepard was a pioneer lawyer and surveyor.   He was chairman of the Georgetown Board of Trustees, and represented Scott County in the State Legislature in 1804. He had four sons and one daughter.   William Tompkins, born March, 1793; Alpheus Xavier Francis, born October, 1795; Thomas Jefferson, born January 15, 1801; James Madison, born September, 1802; and one daughter born in 1807, but died when twelve years old.  James M. Shepard  never married and was elected to the State Senate from the Counties of  Scott and Fayette.

She married Captain JOSIAH D. DAVENPORT on 22 September 1811 in Mer Rouge, Morehouse Parish Louisiana.  He was born 1771 in Rhode Island, and died 13 February 1835 in Mer Rouge, Morehouse Parish, Louisiana.
Biographical Memoirs from Prairie Mer Rouge, Morehouse Parish Louisiana    --Part I continued--

In 1805 Josiah Davenport, a citizen of Rhode Island, met in the city of New Orleans, Mr. Abraham Morehouse, a citizen of Kentucky.  Josiah Davenport was in the merchant marine service, and commanded the vessel "Cleopatra," running between Savannah, Georgia, and Liverpool, England.  Mr. Morehouse had contracted with Baron de Bastrop, a Spanish baron, to induce immigration of white families into that portion of Louisiana lying east of the Ouachita river on the lands since known as the Bastrop Grant. In this undertaking, Mr. Morehouse was retarded from carrying out the plan, for lack of means.  On meeting Capt. Josiah Davenport he elicited his interest in the scheme and the Captain readily agreeing to the enterprise, he sold his vessel and loaned Mr. Morehouse sufficient money to carry out his purpose, engaging to go with him in the wilderness.   Their trip by barge from New Orleans to Point Pleasant on Bayou Bartholomew lasted forty-two days. Captain Davenport settled at Prairie Mer Rouge, nine miles east of Point Pleasant, and there engaged in planting.  He was a man of great energy and enterprise, well fitted to become a pioneer, and did much to promote the growth and development of his section. He erected the first gin house in what is now the parish of Morehouse, and soon after settling here was married to Miss Polly Barlow, a lady born and educated in Kentucky.

I'm especially concerned with the Peter Rentfro you speak of. I believe, if I interpret what you wrote correctly, that Peter, along with Moses, Isaac, James, Joseph & 2 Williams went to the Cumberland Area in 1780. Is that correct? When was Peter Renfro killed? You say he was killed near present day Nashville.

There is a Davidson Co., TN (really N.C.) deeded 840 acres of land on Cumberland to George Pirtle dated 9 Sept. 1780 - proven by oath of William Fletcher in Davidson Co. July term, 1790.

Then there is a deed/grant - land surveyed Nov. 26, 1785 for Peter Rentfro - warrant No. 581- 640 acres in Davidson Co. on Cumberland to Peter Rentfro. Grant signed by Samuel Johnston dated July 13, 1788.

On a 1798 Property tax list for Montgomery Co., TN Peter Rentfro heirs is listed. There was also a James Rentfro on the list.

Peter Rentfro witnessed the will of Wm. McClish in Robertson Co., TN dated 13 Nov. 1802. Peter Rentfro was listed on a petition to general assembly of TN 1803 from Robertson & Montgomery Counties to make new county - son of Wm. McClish, John McClish, was also on the list. (Dickson County was formed from Motgomery & Robertson Counties in 1803.) In 1805 Dickson County (court minutes) James Rentfro was on a jury. Peter Rentfro is mentioned often between 1804 & 1810.

26 Nov 1808 in Dickson Co., TN Nathaniel Johnson deeded land on Barton's Creek to Peter Rentfro. 14 Feb 1810 Dickson Co. John McClish gave to Peter Rentfro property (horses, cattle, etc. - property willed to Jane McClish, now Jane Rentfro, wife of Peter Rentfro by Janes deceased husband, William McClish. Jane Johnston married William McClish in Davidson Co. 10 Nov. 1794.) 7 June 1810 Peter Rentfro of Dickson Co. sold land to Henry Grimes - land where Peter now lives. 11 Sept. 1810 Dickson Co. Peter & Jane Rentfro of "Murry? Co. (Maury Co., TN) sold land to John McClish on Barton's Creek. (They moved to Maury Co., TN from Dickson Co., TN)  By 1817 Peter & wife were in Wayne Co., TN, as were various others who had previously lived in Dickson Co. He was listed there on the 1820, 1830 & 1840 census. This Peter Rentfro was born between 1760-1770 somewhere - per 1840 Wayne Co. census. He must have died before 1850 because there are no Rentfros on the census. It's believed he had no kids - none were listed on any of the census.
I would like to know who this Peter Rentfro was - who his father was & where he lived. Any help will be appreciated!   Thanks. Joan

Teresa Renfro replies:
We believe that this Peter is the son of William Renfro b. 1734 d. 1830 Maury Co., TN. A Peter was on the Poll Tax with This William about 1810 Maury Co., TN. Most of his childen are well known, but Peter and Joshua were a new find Mr. Knight said, who did some genealogy for a friend.

History of Bourbon, Scott, Harrison and Nicholas Counties, Kentucky 
Edited by William Henry Perrin  O.L. Baskin & Co., Chicago, 1882  Part II

Thomas Jefferson Shepard, was born in Georgetown.   He was self-educated, having spent only three months in school, yet he became a good scribe and an extensive reader.   At the age of 16 he entered an apprentice in a jewelry house of his older brother to learn the trade. They manufactured the early brass wall clocks, which sold at from $120 to $130, and it is said that the first clock he ever made is now in the possession of a Georgetown lady.   He worked here until 1828, when he went to Louisville, Kentucky, and worked there for Beard & Ayres.  He returned to Georgetown in 1831, and bought out the jewelry establishment of his brother, and conducted the business for forty years.   He died in February, 1875.  He was married the first time to Miss Amanda Smith, of this county, in November 1830, and raised three children, of which there if but one son living, Clifton R. Shepard, a planter at Ladonia, Arkansas.  His second marriage was in 1852, to Mrs. Eliza Morford, whose maiden name was Woodruff.   There were two sons born of this marriage, viz:  Thomas J. Shepard, jeweler, at Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Samuel S., the subject of this sketch, born in Georgetown; started in the jewelry business in 1871, as the business partner of his brother and conducted business under the firm name of Shepard Bros., until 1880, when S.S. became the sole proprietor of a prosperous business.

Family information from David Weaver Genealogy at Rootsweb's World Connect Project, as well as the following letter

Delores,
I was on one of my patented wild goose chases when I ran across your file on WorldConnect pages. I was very impressed by documentation you reference in your files. You've done a lot of great work. Would love to exchange info with you on Renfros and related families. I'll try to be brief which is hard for me to do -- everything I write turns into a novel. But since I don't know if these folks are a major interest of yours I'll try not to bore youwith too much detail. My interest in Renfros starts with Rebecca Renfro (b.8 Dec 1817) daughter of Peter Jr. (your Peter III) and Judith Land. She married my gg grandfather David Sanders (b. 23 Sep 1803, SC) and is my gg grandmother. David's brother Ausburn (your Osborne) b. 18 Nov 1806, married Emily Mildred Renfro (b. 11 Oct 1824), younger sister of Rebecca.

I notice you show Rebecca and Mildred's kid sister, Nancy B. Renfro as marrying James Duncan. My senior 1st cousin, who is a pro of sorts at this, showed same marriage. However I am convinced this was another Nancy B. Renfro, no relation to our folks -- at least not daughter/sister one. Our most ancient family historian,who was born before Nancy B. died described her as "an old maid spinster whonever married." Initially we figured she erred in her recollections, but last year we found a "Nanny B. Renfro" unmarried in 1860, 1870 and 1880 census' living in household of another David and Ausburn Sanders sibling -- that of their older sister Cynthia Sanders (b. 29 Jun 1801) who married James Hagan (afairly wealthy landowner in Madison County). Nannie B. Renfro is listed in census' as a "Domestic", which she probably was, but she must have been a very special "Domestic" as she is buried in Hagan plot in Richmond Cemetery next to (actually at foot of) James and Cynthia's graves. Anyway her tombstone shows "Nannie B. Renfro" born 01 March 1835 and died 14 Feb 1901. However, I could be wrong -- so you won't hurt my feelings if you arrive at different conclusion.

One other area we differ is as to husband of Narcissus Rebecca Renfro (sister of Peter Jr/III). We both show her 2nd husband as Isaac Butcher, but we have her first husband as old John Land Sr himself. John's 1st wife, Elizabeth Barlow died in child birth of Elizabeth 1 Jan 1796, after which we believe he married Narcissus. Show John F. Land, son of old John Land and Elizabeth Barlow, as marrying 1st, Elizabeth Renfro, kid sister of of Narcissus and Peter, Jr/III. John F. then married Rebecca Cosby 03 Nov 1817 and then Mary Taylor 6 Sep 1842. The above Elizabeth is your ? Land who married Willis Gully 6 Nov 1817. The Elizabeth Renfro that married Jesse Taylor, I show as daughter of Joseph and Mildred. (Also John that married Mary Wright, I have as son of Joseph and Mildred). Rev Joseph Renfro (m. Mildred Land) is of special interest to me as he is probably the Joseph Renfro who performed marriage ceremonies for both our Renfro/Sanders marriages. I believe you also have him performing a marriage or two as I recall. Would love to compare his signatures if you have copy marriage documents you referenced. As to documentationI can email right out, I have marrage documents for Renfro/Sanders marriageswhere Peter was bondsman and gave his consent -- also Joseph's certifications that he performed marriages. And have some deeds, heir type stuff, tombstone pics, etc -- and 1 pic of Rebecca (wife of David and dau of Peter). Anyway be happy to share any or all.

Just reviewing your file and would love to seethat 10 Jul 1851 Jessamine will of Thomas Land. And fascinated by your SC deed references for Renfros on your Peter Jr page -- since my Sanders' came from same area -- and oddly enough there were a John Land Jr and Sr from that area (they died there so not same that died in Madison, but interesting just the same).

26. CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS 'C.C.'6 DAVENPORT (James5, Polly4, James3, Henry2, Thomas1) was born 08 October 1837  (J.C. Davenport)

He married MARY EMMA ANDREWS on 05 November 1863  
Biographical Memoirs from Prairie Mer Rouge, Morehouse Parish Louisiana  Part III

On the home plantation October 08, 1837, C.C. Davenport was born.  Until the age of fourteen years he attended the school of his neighborhood, then commenced clerking in his father's store, in fact, he shared equally with his father the control of their entire business.   At the age of seventeen he entered the Georgetown College of Kentucky, from which he graduated in 1857.    From that time until the commencement of hostilities between the states he with his brothers Josiah and John and his sister Eliza S., now the wife of Dr. Robert Cotten, a prominent physician of Birmingham, Alabama, resided at the old homestead.

In 1861 Louisiana, seceding from the Union, found these three brothers ready and willing to enter the confederate army.   As to how well they discharge their duties they will leave to their comrades to attest.  C.C. Davenport went out as lieutenant in the Twelfth Louisiana Infantry, in the Army of Tennessee, and served in all the engagements in which his command participated, and by virtue of promotion he was made captain of his company.

Josiah entered the service as a member of the Third Louisiana Regiment, Army of Missouri, and held the rank of lieutenant at the time of the surrender.

John, who was then but fifteen years of age, went out as a private in a company known as the Davenport Rebels, which was named in honor of Capt. C.C. Davenport.

The former was in the Army of Northern Virginia and was in fifty-three active engagements and at the surrender at Appomattox,  he was the only commissioned officer of his regiment left to report and sign paroles.  He held the rank of second lieutenant.

In 1861 C.C. Davenport was elected to the house of representatives and served two years.  In 1872 he was again elected to the Louisiana legislature on the John McEnery ticket, but that government failing to be recognized by the President, the McEnery legislature was disbanded.   In 1879 he was elected a delegate from Morehouse Parish to the constitutional convention.

Throughout his career he has been actively engaged in planting and merchandising.   In 1882 he, with a few friends, was largely instrumental in inducing the Construction company to locate the Houston, Central Arkansas & Northern railroad at Mer Rouge, Lousiana.

On November 05, 1863, he was married to Miss Mary Emma Andrews, the daughter of a neighboring planter.   Her Christian virtues, training and education had well fitted her to become the wife of a man active in business enterprises, and a mother of whom any child might be fond and proud.

Although Captain Davenport has reached the age of fifty-three years, he is still  active in business and labors for the advancement of every enterprise tending to benefit his home and community. Through his efforts, with his own means, the entire town of Mer Rouge has been laid off, streets graded and hundreds of water oaks planted to add beauty and pleasure to the town.   He has manifested his faith in the future prospects of this place by erecting one of the finest business houses in the South, which, in convenience and ornamental finish would add to, the appearance of any city. He is also the owner of a number of other buildings of substantial structure and ornamental appearance and, in fact, is a live, progressive and pushing business man, well calculated to perform his duties as a citizen, friend, husband and father with faithfulness and credit.

He is the father of six children: A.H., Guy, Joseph A., Ida, Mary Emma and Leon, all of whom still reside with their parents.

Mrs. Davenport is a member of the Episcopal church, and she and her husband are leaders in the social circles in which they move.
