Generation 5

CALVIN5 BARLOW (Joseph4, John3, John2, Thomas1) was born 1829 in Burke Co North Carolina and died in Caldwell Co NC. Burial is in McLean Cemetery, Watauga Co North Carolina.

He married 1) MERITTA 'RITTA' BENTLEY married 04 March 1854 in Caldwell Co North Carolina. They moved to Watauga Co North Carolina
He married 2) MARY TILLEY 02 November 1887, in Caldwell Co North Carolina, daughter of HOSEA and NANCY TILLEY
He married 3.) JANE BECK on 02 August 1893 in Watauga Co North Carolina, per marriage records in Watauga Co Register of Deeds Office. Jane is buried beside Calvin in McLean Cemetery, Watauga Co North Carolina.
At the time of the writing of the book, a date was not known for the marriage of Calvin and Mary, and it was thought that only one child was born to Calvin and his first wife, Meritta. However, in July of 2000, Ruth Barlowe Williams found in Caldwell Co Register of Deeds office, the following:


Marriage Register Book 1, Page 10, Entry #70
Calvin Barlow & Ritta Bentley were married by JP - H. Turner, on March 04, 1854

Marriage Register, Book 7, Page 12
Calvin Barlow, age 50, son of Joseph and Louisa Barlow,
married Mary Tilley, age 35, daughter of Hosea and Nancy Tilley,
on November 02, 1887
The marriage took place at the residence of S.H. Oxford, JP, in the Little River Twp.


This confirms, that Ritta "Meritta" Bentley was the mother of all of Calvin's known children, since all of them were born before Calvin and Mary were married.

Ruth also found, in the index to the 1880 census for Watauga Co Calvin's name and the 5 youngest children, but no wife, so Ritta was dead in 1880. She writes: I hope to locate the actual census page to see what the ages of the children were in 1880. I believe Calvin "fudged" a little about his age when he married Mary.

I found the 1850 census listing for Joseph and Louisa Barlow, and Calvin was still living with them.  His age, at that time, was stated as 21.

Military:  Calvin served in the Confederate Services from 15 March 1862 until 27 July 1862 when he was discharged for epilepsy.

Ruth Barlowe Williams notes on September 4, 2014:
Note: The three children, Vance L., Alden H. and Mary S., listed as children of Levi Barlow and Mira Ella Kirby, are not children of Levi and Mira. Instead, they are children of Linville Horton Barlow and Mary Evelyn Buff. The foregoing children were listed, incorrectly, as children of Levi and Mira in "Bunches of Barlows." Levi was a brother of my 2nd great-grandfather, Calvin, and I've done extensive research on this family. Per my research, no children were born to Levi and Mira, and per the 1900 and 1910 census, Mira was the mother of no (0) children.

DANIEL F.6 BARLOW (Alfred5, Joseph4, John3, John2, Thomas1) was born in Tennessee, according the 1880 Lincoln Co Arkansas census records where he is shown to be age 19, born about 1861.

He married ROSANNA CARNLEY on 21 September 1884 in Lincoln Co Arkansas.  Her death certificate shows her birth as June 24, 1866 in Mills Arkansas, and death on April 23, 1949 in Everett, Washington, her husband is Edward Thompson.


Note: John Barlow's death certificate lists Rosanna as a Conley though the informant was, John's daughter-in-law, and she inadvertantly gave wrong information. It is also listed in LDS records as Conley.

It is not known what happened to Daniel, as Rosanna, apparently married a Long before 1910 in Pulaski Co Arkansas, and was married to Edward Thompson in Washington at the time of her death.

JOHN T.6 BARLOW (Alfred5, Joseph4, John3, John2, Thomas1) was born 08 July 1875, possibly in Mississippi or in Lincoln Co Arkansas, and died 24 February 1940 in Pine Bluff, Jefferson Co Arkansas.

He married SARAH JANE 'JENNIE' LEE on 14 October 1894 in Star City, Lincoln Co Arkansas. She was born June 1875 in Star City, Lincoln Co Arkansas, and died 25 December 1945 in Pine Bluff, Jefferson Co Arkansas. Her parents were DOCK and BETTIE LEE.  Both are buried in Bellwood Cemetery, Pine Bluff, Jefferson Co Arkansas.
The 1921-1922 Pine Bluff City Directories show that John B. Barlow was living at 2001 E. Sixth Avenue, and that he was employed at St L S-W Ry Co. Jennie is living in the home, as are their three sons. Edgar D. is employed by the same company as his father, 'Louis' is a clerk, and John B. Jr. is a driver for Camp Grocery Company.

I think his middle initial was "T" though.

The 1925-1926 city directory does not list this family, perhaps they had moved outside the city limits.

SAMUEL MACK6 KNIGHT (Cynthia5, Joseph4, John3, John2, Thomas1)

He married MARY LOU CARLTON on 29 October 1891
Bunches of Barlows shows Mack to have been born in the 1880's but even if he were born in 1880, he would have been 11 years of age at this marriage date. Another researcher shows him as SAMUEL MACK KNIGHT, and with a birthdate of September 05, 1885. That would make his marriage occur at the age of 6. A possibility is that the marriage date is wrong, noting the dates of childrens birth, makes me think that is most probably the case.

Oren, Millie, and Family

He married 1.) MARY LIZZIEBELL 'BELL' WILLIAMS on 06 May 1916. The daughter of ALFORD/ALFRED WILLIAM and ADDIE STAMEY, she was born 30 March 1901 and died 09 January 1929 in Watauga Co North Carolina, burial in Jestes Family Cemetery
He married 2.) FLORENCE 'FLORA' FOX, but they later was divorced.
He married 3.) MILLIE MABEL WILLIAMS on 03 October 1931. The daughter of NEMORE WILLIAMS and KATIE DELLINGER, she was born 06 July 1907, and died 27 June 1975 in McDowell Co North Carolina.

Frances Barlowe Dillingham, daughter of Oren James and Millie Williams Barlowe compiled most of the data on this family. For several years, Frances collected family information. She got information from Family Bibles, public records and interviews with lots of family members, including her father, Oren. In 1983, she compiled all of her information and wrote the below referenced family history as a labor of love for her family. The majority of the information for the Oren James Barlowe Family, submitted herewith, was copied from this family history written by Frances Barlowe Dillingham.

Oren James Barlowe was born in Watauga Co North Carolina. He lived with his parents and siblings in the Grandfather Community. He attended the 2nd Grandfather School. As a young man, he was a farmer and timber worker. He was a member of Watauga Baptist Church, which his maternal great grandfather, Isaac McClurd, helped form. Isaac McClurd was the first pastor of this church, and he served as pastor for many years.

Oren left Watauga County about 1930. He worked on the Mississippi River out of St. Louis, Missouri for a while before moving to McDowell Co North Carolina. Oren worked mostly in the furniture industry in McDowell Co. He was a dedicated, hard working and God fearing man. Most of his life, he was a Baptist, but late in life, he joined the Church of God. He died on June 23, 1971, at age 75.

Ruth Barlowe Williams writes:

I now have proof census records, and family knowledge - that the birth name of my grandfather, Oren James Barlowe, was "James Oren Barlow." Two of his children have related a story that he told them. He did not like his initials - JOB. So, he just switched his first and middle names. He was called "Oren," so I suppose it didn't seem to him that this was a "big deal." As for the "e," well, it appears, from family stories, that he added the "e" because a school teacher told his daughter, Edith, that the name should be spelled "Barlowe." Aunt Edith told me that she became very upset, so Grandpa Oren added the "e" to please her. After Grandpa Oren started signing his name as "Barlowe," the rest of his family followed suit, with the exception of his brother, Stanley. Grandpa Oren applied for a delayed birth certificate --birth records were not recorded in the public records of NC until 1913, so people born before that time could get a "delayed" birth certificate with certain proofs, i.e., Family Bible records-- , and he received same with the name, "Oren James Barlowe." So, in effect, he made his name "legal."

Frances Barlow sources are:  'Julius Posatale Barlowe and wife, Tempie McClurd Barlowe, Descendants,' a non-published family history, Frances Barlowe Dillingham, 1983.

Other sources for information about Oren James Barlowe and his family include:  Census Records, Public Records of Births, Deaths, Marriages, Deeds, Wills, etc., particularly records in Watauga Co North Carolina, 'Grandfather Community' - Ted Shook, c. 1985, Interviews of Family Members
Children of  OREN JAMES BARLOW and BELLE WILLIAMS are:

ERCEL LEE BARLOWE, born 11 February 1923 in Watauga Co North Carolina, and died 23 September 1999 in Morristown Tennessee, burial in Stokely Chapel Church Cemetery, Newport Tennessee.
He married 1.) MINNIE PEARL DAY, on 22 June 1949 in Gaffney South Carolina. The daughter of THOMAS CLAYTON DAY and HARRIET MINERVA WELLS. They had five children, including RUTH BARLOWE WILLIAMS and MICHAEL BARLOW.
Ercel and Pearl Day Barlow Ercel Lee Barlow
  He married 2.) ALLENE BROWN. They had no children.
Ercel was born in Watauga County North Carolina. He lived with his parents, Oren and Bell. Shortly before his 6th birthday, Ercel's mother, Bell, died of pneumonia, at age 28. Ercel remembered his father Oren telling him, in later years, that Bell went to McDowell Co to care for her mother, Addie Stamey Williams, who was seriously ill. Addie died on December 19, 1928 of "influenza, with double pneumonia being contributory" Soon after Bell, returned home, she, too, became seriously ill and she died on January 09, 1929, just 3 weeks after her mother died. Many times, Ercel expressed regret that he could not remember much about his mother.

After his mother's death, family members cared for Ercel and his siblings so that Oren could work. Primarily, their grandparents, Julius and Tempie, and their Uncle Vernie and Aunt Eva cared for the children. Oren married again, but this marriage did not work out for Oren and his family, so Oren got a divorce.

In October 1931, Oren married Millie Williams, a first cousin to Bell, and Oren established a new home for his family in McDowell Co.

In May 1944, Ercel enlisted in the U.S. Navy, and was honorably discharged in February 1948. After 18 months as a civilian, Ercel decided that the Navy offered him more opportunities for advancement than he had found as a civilian. So, in August 1947, he re-enlisted in the Navy and made the Navy his career.

Ercel proudly served his country for 22 years. He retired from the Navy in November 1967. He retired holding one of the highest ranks possible for an enlisted man to earn.

After retiring from the Navy, Ercel worked in several diverse jobs, including sales, long distance truck driver and school bus driver.

Ercel was a strong advocate of education. He received his GED (high school diploma) and some college credits while he was in the Navy. He constantly stressed importance of education to his children. He had a dream that all of his children would obtain a college degree. He lived to see that dream come true.

Ercel was a proud man. He was proud of his heritage and he passed that along to his children -- always stressing the importance of family. Ercel loved God, he loved his family and he loved his country.

Ercel died September 23, 1999, at the age of 76. A Navy team from Norfolk, Virginia, his last duty station, performed military rites at the graveside. Ercel would have been pleased with the dignity afforded him and his family at his final rites.
Note from Susan: Ercel, I am sure was very proud of at least two of his children, Ruth and Michael. Ruth sent me their impressive resumes, citing how proud she was of her brother; but after seeing her resume, I would say she has just as much right to be proud of her accomplishments.

JOHN T.7 BARLOW (Daniel6, Alfred5, Joseph4, John3, John2, Thomas1) was born on 21 September 1883-85 in Little Rock, Pulaski Co Arkansas, and died 12 June 1941,

He married 1.) ADELIA AVERY, no information as to where or when, but apparently they were divorced.    He married 2.) HILDA

Adelia and John Barlow
John died 12 June 1941 in a car accident in Klamath Falls Oregon while residing in an Oregon Hotel. His body was returned to Everett Washington for burial.

14 June 1941
John Barlow, 64, former employee of the Great Northern Railway in Everett, but for the past 36 years a G___man on the Union Pacific out of Seattle, died from injuries recieved in an auto accident near Klamath Falls, Oregon, late Thursday. Mr. Barlow leaves his widow, Hilda, son, Lee Barlow, and brother, Emmett Barlow of Portland, a son, Jack Barlow of Seattle; two daughters, Mrs. Ruth Bahlmaier of Carmel, Calif. and Mrs. Helen Cummins of Portland; his mother, Mrs. Anna Thompson of 1912 Twenty-third street; two sisters, Mrs. C. E. Bonnell of 2302 Lombard avenue and Mrs. William Jameson of 4201 Terrace drive and one grandchild survives. Funeral services for Jr. Barlow will be held at the chapel of Challacombe & Fickle at 1 o'clock Wedesday afternoon. The Reverend C.W. Butterfield will conduct the service. Burial will be in the family plot at Evergreen Cemetery.




The death certificate shows his birth date to have been altered from September 01, 1874, to September 01, 1883, per affidavit #4376, date not legible - reason for the change was not stated-- The date on the funeral record shows his birthdate as September 01, 1874, this information given by John's second wife, Hilda. Neither date is thought to be correct, as Daniel and Adelia were married in in 1874. Ruth, who is John's daughter said that John changed his birthdate so that he could go to work for the railroad, and this is the cause for all the conflict in his birth year. The true year is thought to be 1885.   Hilda is the person listed as his wife on his death certificate, per informant, Mrs. Lee Barlow. She the wife of John's son Lee. Lee had also been involved in the fatal accident with John Barlow, and was seriously injured, thus his wife was the informant on John's death certificate.

John and his mother, Rosanna Carnley Barlow Thompson are buried in the Evergreen Cemetery, Evergreen Washington, in the Barlow Plot. This information was verified by Vernon Barlow, who personally went to the cemetery. Two other unrelated persons are also buried in the plot.
Children of JOHN BARLOW and ADELIA AVERY are:

Body Found in Channel after 11 Weeks in Water


The body of Lee Milton Barlow, 49, the workman of a dredge being used as part of the Fire Island Inland Bridge project, was found floating in the state channel Tuesday night.
Barlow, of 150 Statesman Street, North Babylon, had been missing from the dredge Woodmere since March 21. He was last seen when a service tugboat dropped him off at the dredge for his night's work.
He was reported missing by Gilbert Raynor, an official of the Fort Neck Dredge Company of Merrick. Raynor's report touched off a massive search by units of the county police marine division and the Coast Guard.
The search was given up on March 28, after a week with no success.
Yesterday morning, fisherman aboard an open boad Captain Joseph, spotted the body. The Coast was called and arrived at the scene at 8:25.
The body was taken to Captree State Park, where identification was made by detectives of the Long Island State Parkway Police and Mr. Barlow's family. According to police, identification has been difficult because of the 11-week period the body was in the water.
Tuesday night, Adam Kopf of West Islip, coming through the state channel in his boat spotted a body, which is said to have been Mr. Barlow's. Mr. Kopf called the Coast Guard, but they were unable to find the body until the re-sighting by the Captain Joseph fisherman yesterday morning.
Mr. Barlow, a native of the state of Washington, had resided with his family on Stateman Street for a year. He is survived by his wife, Rosemary; children, Rosemary, Kevin and Brian; sisters Helen Nold and Ruth Bihlmaier of California, a brother, John Barlow of Washington.
He was employed as an operating engineer for the dredging company. His body is reposing at the Lindenhurst Funeral Home. Funeral arrangements were incomplete at press time.



This family appears to have had their share of tragedy. Lee's father, John was killed in a car accident in 1941, Lee had been a survivor of that same accident and was seriously injured, but lived. At the time of his death, Lee was 49 years of age. Just this year, (2000) Rosemary (submitter of this information, along with Shirley Stewart) lost a brother to yet another tragic accident, he was 48 years of age.
Children of JOHN BARLOW and HILDA are:
