BARLOW, president and treasurer of The Huber Manufacturing
Company, is one of Marion's self-made men. He was born
in Ganges, Richland County, Ohio, February 01, 1861.
and is a son of Rev. Chauncey L. and Martha (Jones) Barlow,
the former a United Brethren minister. Besides the subject
of this sketch there were three children, in the parental
family, namely Elonson D. Barlow, deceased-, Lulu A.,
wife of A. N. Woodruff; and E.C.L. Barlow.
Mr. Barlow secured
his early education in the common schools and graduated
from the Cardington High School. Afterwards he attended
Otterbein University at Westerville for one year and
then spent one year in Fostoria Academy. From Fostoria
he came to Marion in the summer of 1881 and entered the
employ of The Huber Manufacturing Company as a painter.
In the fall of the same year he entered the repair shipping
department of the company and soon after became bookkeeper.
So faithful and attentive was he in the discharge of his
duties that when M. W. Haines resigned as treasurer of
the company in August, 1883. Mr. Barlow was appointed by
the board of directors to fill the unexpired term. In January
following he was regularly elected a director and treasurer
of the company, which position he has ever since held.
Throughout this period of nearly 24 years, Mr. Barlow has
had the immediate supervision of the finances of the company,
and much of its remarkable growth and business success
has been due to his ability and foresight. When Mr. Huber
died in 1904, many thought that no one could be found who
would successfully head the company. All agreed that a
man of ability and experience was necessary to meet. the
requirements of the position. Mr. Barlow possessed both
and so he was regularly elected in January, 1905, to succeed
Mr. Huber in the presidency of the company. He is now both
president and treasurer of the company, Whose continued
growth and prosperity stand as an evidence of his worth.
On September 8, 1888, Mr. Barlow was married to Elizabeth
Harsh. of Fostoria, Ohio. They reside at their beautiful
