The first section written by Edson Barlow, the rest is from items found within this website, by Susan BARLOW Holmes

Augustus C. Barlow was an 8th generation descendant of John Barlow of Fairfield Connecticut, through Aaron Morehouse Barlow 7, Elnathan Barlow 6, Aaron Barlow 5, Samuel Barlow 4, Samuel Barlow 3, John Barlow 2, John Barlow 1.

John Barlow and his children are believed to have been born in Pembrokeshire, Wales, although this has not yet been proved. He and his family came to America, probably around 1635-1638, and settled at Fairfield, Connecticut.

John 1, John 2, and Samuel 3, lived at Fairfield. Samuel 4, who was the father of the poet and statesman, Joel Barlow, moved to Redding Connecticut, around 1740. Aaron Barlow 5 was a Revolutionary War soldier and lived at Redding. Elnathan Barlow 6 moved to and settled in Gallia County Ohio, around 1803 when his son, Aaron Morehouse Barlow, was just a baby.

Augustus Charles Barlow (he also went by Charles Augustus Barlow) was a physician and lived in Gallia County, Ohio; Mason County, Virginia; (now West Virginia); Meigs County, Ohio; and Fort Scott Kansas.

He served in the Civil War but his records are somewhat confusing.

Apparently, using the name Charles A. Barlow, he served first as Assistant Surgeon with the 4th West Virginia Calvary Regiment and then as Surgeon with the 4th West Virginia Infantry Regiment. He resigned this position on April 05, 1862.

On July 4, 1862, he re-entered the service as Augustus C. Barlow and served as Assistant Surgeon with the 47th Ohio Infantry Regiment. He resigned this position on November 29, 1862.

He re-entered the service on March 10, 1863, as Surgeon with the 62nd Ohio Infantry Regiment. On March 16, 1865, he was brevated a Lieutenant Colonel and on September 01, 1865, he was discharged.

Widow Blanch E. Barlow's pension application no. 443635 filed July 24, 1890, certificate no. 316896, resident Kansas.

 

CHARLES AUGUSTUS8 BARLOW (AARON MOREHOUSE7, ELNATHAN6, AARON5, SAMUEL4, SAMUEL3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born January 01, 1825, and died December 21, 1884 in Fort Scott, Kansas.

Blanche was born August 08, 1840 in Attica Indiana, and died October 22, 1904 in Fort Scott  Kansas. She is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery.  It appears from records that Blanche had been married to a Curtis prior to her marriage to A.C. Barlow

MRS. BLANCHE BARLOW DEAD

One of Fort Scott's oldest residents passed away of bronchial trouble. Funeral tomorrow.

Mrs. Elizabeth Barlow, mother of Mrs. J.E. Good, and Gus Barlow, died at ten minutes before 9 o'clock Saturday night, of bronchial trouble, a disease that fastened itself upon her about a year ago and since which time she has been in poor health. Death occurred at the Barlow home, 207 S. National Ave, while she was surrounded by her family. Death was peaceful, the deceased simply lapsing into that eternal sleep. The news of the death of Mrs. Barlow will be received with considerable regret and surprise among her numerous friends, as while it was known that she was in poor health, few believed the end was so near. Her sickness dates back one year when she suffered an attack of lagrippe, which left her with bronchial trouble from which she could not survive.

Mrs. Barlow was 64 years of age and had resided in Fort Scott for almost thirty five years, coming here from Indiana where she was born and raised, with her husband, the late Dr. Barlow, one of Fort Scott's early physicians. During her residence in this city, she was much loved by all who knew her. She was a woman of refined tastes and her life has been one of usefulness in this community.

The deceased is survived by three children, Mrs. J.E. Good, Mrs. D. Preston Gilstrap of Kansas City, Kansas, and Gus Barlow, of this city, and two grandchildren.

The funeral over the remains of this estimable lady will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, from the residence.

The service will be conducted by Rev. Albert Watkins of St. Andrews Church.

The following gentlemen will act as pallbearers:  J.W. Withers, H.E. Reid, Dr. A. Coston, Harry C. Ernich, D.B. Berger and C.E. Hulett.

Children of Charles and Rozelle are:

MARY LLOYD9 BARLOW, born November 17, 1847 in Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co Ohio

Mary was still using the Barlow name when she applied for DAR membership in December of 1911, so I assume she never married

ANNIE BARLOW, born December 06, 1849, and died May 06, 1869
FREDERICK BARLOW, born Octonber 20, 1850, and died February 28, 1928 [death certificate]
He married HATTIE HALE on August 27, 1881.  Hattie was born March 16, 1863 in Georgetown, Kentucky [undocumented]
He married LUELLA BROWN c1900. The daughter of Josephine Brown, she was born December 19, 1869 in New York, and died January 26, 1926.  She and Frederick are buried in Fairview Cemetery, Cayuhoga Co Ohio.

Note, May 2009:  I received a note from a woman doing research on the Fairview Cemetery where Frederick is buried.  It appears there are several discrepancies between our two genealogy records.  She writes: 
Frederick Barlow, middle initial P. (from death certificate) or H. from cemetery records.  He was born (1851 from cemetery inscription records taken in 1929 or 20 Oct 1850 from death certificate) in Galopolis, Ohio to Charles and Mary Lloyd Barlow <-- parents and place of birth also come from his death certificate.  The informant was his daughter, Josephine Barlow Baldwin.  He married Luella Brown (I have no marriage date).  Frederick was a mailman (the horse and buggy kind).  They made their home in what is now Lakewood, Ohio. They had three children; Jean (who died as an infant), Mrs. Josephine Baldwin and Mrs. T.W. Paul.  Frederick died from an accidental fall down the basement stairs in Feb. 1928.  Luella died from acute dilation of the heart in Jan of 1926.  Frederick, Luella and Jean are buried in the Fairview Park Cemetery, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. There are no headstones (although there may have been at some time what with inscription records taken).

....His daughter was mistaken about his mother's name. I'm not sure where the name of his first wife comes from, or if it is correct. SBH

AUGUSTUS BARLOW RITES

Large Number of Old Family Friends Gather at Cheney Chapel

Quite a large number of old family friends and acquaintances gathered at the Cheney Chapel, 119 South Main street, and at the Barlow lot in the Evergreen Cemetery yesterday afternoon at 4:30 to pay their tribute of respect for Gus C. Barlow, who died in Detroit, Mich., and whose cremated remains were laid to rest beside his mother, Mrs. Blanche Barlow, in the Barlow lot at the cemetery.

Rector John B. Matthews gave the regular Episcopal burial service at the grave, which was very impressive.

Death Certificate

Children of Gus and _____:  Margaret Barlow was born c1905/06 in Kansas, and Mary Barlow was born c1907/08 in Missouri

 

Aaron Barlow writes in reference to: "Ensign" Aaron Barlow from DAR records

It says in those records that he married Rebecca Barlow - who must be Rebecca Sanford. Also, according to what I have known from the family, and according to what was presented on your site by others, Aaron Barlow as not an Ensign, but was given the honorific "Colonel" after the Revolution. Elnathan, his son, apparently, was killed at the end of the War of 1812. Another son, of course, was my own great-great-great grandfather Samuel.

Does anyone have information on Jessie BARLOW GOOD, daughter of Blanche Elizabeth FARMER CURTIS BARLOW (1840-1904) and Augustus Charles BARLOW (1818-1884)?   Augustus Charles Barlow was the son of Aaron Morehouse Barlow.

She was a cousin of mine and I would very much like to get in touch with her descendants.   Thank you.
