Henry Barlow of Pocahontas County, WV and his wives
Rachel Cameron Hickman and Nancy Jane Cassell
From the research of Nancy Barlow Bruns  Fredericksburg, Virginia
HENRY3 BARLOW (JOHN2, RICHARD1) was born 21 Feb 1827 near Edray, WV, and died 19 Feb 1909 in Pocahontas County, WV.

He married (1) RACHEL CAMERON HICKMAN 30 Jan 1855, daughter of JAMES HICKMAN and ELIZABETH HAMILTON. She was born 02 Jun 1836 in Pocahontas County, VA, and died 05 Dec 1861 in Pocahontas County, VA.

He married (2) NANCY JANE MATILDA CASSELL 22 Sep 1862 in Pocahontas County, VA1, daughter of WILLIAM CASSELL and MATILDA WANLESS. She was born 19 Aug 1841 in Back Alleghany, VA, and died 20 Jun 1906 in Edray WV.
HENRY BARLOW:
Henry Barlow, the ninth child of John and Martha Waddell Barlow, was apparently named after his step grandfather, Henry Casebolt. Henry Casebolt of Greenbrier County married the Revolutionary War widow Barbara Harvey Barlow and thus was the only father John Barlow ever knew. (For additional information on Barbara Harvey and Richard Barlow see article “A Husband for Barbara”) Henry Barlow was a farmer, having received 325 acres from his father about 1852. While a young man, Henry married twice. His first wife, Rachel Cameron Hickman, bore three children and then died following the birth of the fourth child. About 10 months later, Henry married a young widow, Nancy Jane Matilda Cassell Shinaberry.
The Henry Barlow family lived at the John and Martha Barlow home place on Red Lick Mountain (near Edray, Pocahontas County, WV) until the 1870's. Until their deaths, the pioneers John and Martha resided with the family. John Barlow died in 1866, and it was after Martha Barlow's death in 1872 that Henry Barlow and his wife Nancy moved down the mountain to the area below Onoto near Edray. The pioneers, John and Martha Barlow, are buried at the Red Lick Mountain family graveyard along with Henry's first wife, Rachel Hickman Barlow, while Henry and Nancy Jane Barlow are buried at the Edray Cemetery. The Red Lick site contains the graves of several young children--graves marked by river rocks. Formal tombstones commemorate John and Martha, Rachel and her daughters, and a second Rachel Cameron, the child of Henry and Nancy.
The Red Lick Mountain home--more than half way up the mountain-- was the Barlow home place from early in the marriage of John and Martha until Henry's family moved down the mountain 60-some years later. It was said to be a two story house to which John added as needed. Near the house was a large garden area and fruit trees. The graveyard was close to the house. The Barlow land on the mountain is a Christmas tree farm today, but it is still marked by some hardwoods, emerging scrub growth, wildflowers, fern, weeds, and blackberry vines. It was clearly isolated in the early days. The Barlows probably used a path coming up the mountain although now it is possible to reach the site by coming down the mountain from the highway.
Some time about 1865, Henry and his younger brother Amos started a mercantile store at Edray. After a few years, Mr. Barlow bought out his brother and went into partnership with George P. Moore. In 1902, after being a merchant for about 40 years, Mr. Barlow sold his share to A.R. Gay.
Long before banks were feasible in the area, Mr. Barlow served as a banker. One of his sons recalled that Mr. Barlow always counted his money before the fireplace.   One night, he got too near and a $100 bill went up the chimney. When they rushed outside all they found were ashes. Mr. Barlow was among the first directors of the local bank. He also served for years on the Edray Board of Education which he sometimes called the Board of Ignorance during meetings of the Pocahontas County Teachers' Institutes. He was a devoted Methodist and attended the Edray Methodist Church where the chair in which he rocked back marked the wall--the marks could be seen for years after his death. He had become a member of the still standing Hamlin Chapel (the old log church) in 1843. Mr. Barlow was a Democrat as were several of his sons.
It is said that he was a man who desired peace and many times aided in making peace between others. He was often times called the peacemaker. Henry Barlow, according to his son Davis, did not believe in war, and while courteous to both sides in the Civil War, is said to have told a General that no matter who won tle there could be no real victor. Davis Barlow reported this conversation in his journal.
RACHEL CAMERON:
Mrs. Rachel Barlow was the daughter of James Elliott Hickman and Elizabeth Hamilton. Both families have long lineages taking them back to early days in Virginia. Rachel is remembered as a faithful wife and mother and good neighbor.    Burial: Red Lick Mountain family graveyard
NANCY JANE CASTEEL:
There is a family legend that Nancy's brother George Cassell was severely wounded during a battle in the Civil War and that Nancy rode horseback from home to be with her brother who died of his wounds. Later research found George Cassell severely wounded at the Battle of Port Republic June 9, 1862, George was a confederate soldier in Company G, 31st Virginia Regiment (listed under name of George Castile) and Company A, 62nd Virginia Regiment. (See the notes of Mrs. Jacob Cassell, Box 1, Genealogy Room, Pocahontas County Library, Mrs. Cassell left numerous handwritten notes of material including letters copied from the Pocahontas Times. This information came from a letter dated April 22, 1922, and signed W.H. Hull).
Nancy's ride occurred, if it did, before her marriage to Henry Barlow in September of 1862. Nancy's father remarried after the death of his first wife, and Nancy had a half brother George named after the lost brother.
In looking at the Red Lick graveyard today, a visitor is struck at the losses the Barlows suffered in 1864 when three of their four little girls died within a few weeks of each other.
MARRIAGE NOTES FOR HENRY BARLOW and NANCY JANE CASTEEL:
Nancy was a widow (Mrs. Peter Shinabery) when she married Henry Barlow. Her first husband died in December of 1861. She married Mr. Barlow, a widower with several small children, the following September 22. Mr. Barlow's first wife (Rachel Cameron Hickman) had died in December of 1861. Mrs. Barlow's new family in September of 1862 included Mary Alice, about seven, two toddlers, Huldah and Evaline, the baby John Elliot. Also living with her were her father in law and mother in law. John and Martha Waddell Barlow. The Rev. James E. Moore of Stony Creek performed the wedding service.
Mrs. Barlow's son Anderson remembered years later that his mother had called her firstborn child, Rachel Cameron, in honor of her husband's first wife. The child, called "Cammie", died while still a toddler. Nancy Jane's great grandson, the late Sam Barlow, recalled that his great grandmother had been a school teacher when she married Mr. Barlow. Her penmanship which is shown in her Bible is excellent and very readable.

BARLOW FAMILY exhibit planned for Pioneer Days this year. An exhibit about the Barlows, a pioneer Pocahontas County family, will be featured during Pioneer Days July 9-12 [2003] at the McClintic Library. The exhibit will be a history and genealogy of this family   whose roots in this area and in Virginia go back
to before the Revolution. Barlows and Barlow descendants have been associated in farming, business, government, and education for generations. In fact, the family predates the 1821 formation of Pocahontas as a county to a time when this was Virginia's first frontier.
The exhibit is based on a collection of photographs and obituaries belonging to several family members who are involved in producing a Barlow family history.
The genealogy is based in part on material gathered about 25 years ago by Crystal Barlow and her late husband, William Barlow, but added to with new material coming from cousins from many branches.
Nancy Barlow Bruns, of Fredericksburg, Virginia, great-granddaughter of Henry and Nancy Jane Cassell Barlow, of Edray, who is coordinating the effort, says that the project began with a trip to the old Barlow homesite and graveyard on Red Lick Mountain. Six second cousins gathered to view the old family graveyard and begain then to examine a family genealogy of the Henry Barlow line which they decided needed corrections and updating.
"We had a basic framework from the earlier genealogy and we recognized from our visit to Red Lick Mountain the sturdy ancestry we descend from, so we had a story to share. Originally I thought it might be possible to update each of the branches and produce a family history and genealogy over a period of about two years", Ms. Bruns said. "As we have worked at reaching family members lost to us we have become interested in seeing material placed on an Internet site where it would be accessible and quickly updated and added to."
The cousins group hopes that the library exhibit, while of interest to genealogists, historians and the general public, will also bring in Barlow descendants still living in the county. The cousins working on this project are Mary Frances Barlow of Edray, Nancy Cochran Woolridge, of Roanoke, Virginia, James E. Barlow, of Edray and Roanoke, Robert L. Barlow, of Wintersville, Ohio. The original group included Sam Barlow, of Buckeye, who died last fall.
Also contributing material have been Helen Flach, of California, and the original genealogist Crystal Barlow, now of Liberty, Indiana. Additional assistance has come from Hazel Pritchard, of St. Albans, Ruth Taylor, of Hillsboro, Wanda J. Wymer, and Robert Galford.
A family reunion will be held beginning at noon on July 12 at the Edray United Methodist Church, where many members of the family worshiped over the years.
The children of John and Martha Barlow, the 18-19th centuries pioneers, were William Barlow, who is thought to have gone to Missouri, Alexander, who has descendants still living in this county, Elizabeth Barlow, who married William Baxter and has descendants still living in the county, Josiah Barlow, with descendants still living in the county, James Barlow, about whom little is known, Nathan Gilliam Barlow, John Barlow, Jr., who died in Schuyler, Missouri, and whose descendants live in Ohio and Indiana and who family tree is probably the nearest to completion, Henry Barlow, with descendants still living or owning property in the county, Amos Barlow, with descendants still living in Pocahontas County. Two Barlow sisters, Mary Ann or Ann and Miriam, married brothers from the Auldridge family.
"The family is a study in the history of the times. There are giants among men but little known about the women except we can look at their deaths in childbearing and see the number of babies and toddlers lost and conclude that those who survived were hardy and brave. A strong religious theme runs throughout the family," Ms. Bruns said. "As with many families some wre Confederates and some Union. Several in each generation fought in World War I and in World War II. In addition we have research on the earliest Barlow of our line and other families."     Copy of Original Article

Jim and Pearl married in 1953 and continued to farm together under their deaths in 1998. The farm, Maple Hill Farm, is now owned by Pearl's niece Nancy Cochran Wooldridge and her family.

WILLIAM ANDERSON BARLOW:
Auctioneer and Farmer: Named William Anderson, Anderson had a keen memory and remembered being about eight when the Henry Barlow family moved down from the Red Lick Mountain home to the Onoto area near Edray. Mr. Barlow started Pine Grove School in 1872 and attended for 15 straight terms. After he married, Anderson and his family made their home on a 97 acre farm near Onoto. Anderson Barlow once took his granddaughter and grandson up the mountain to the Red Lick property where they picked apples off the ground. Mr. Barlow said no apple ever tasted as good as those. A licensed auctioneer for 36 years, Mr. Barlow cried many sales--the last when he was in his 80's. He also was president of the community debating society for 17 years and played Santa Claus 13 times. Mr. Barlow hated farewells. He liked people to just get in the car and go.
STELLA FRANCES SILVA:
Family tradition has it that Stella Frances was a brown-eyed blond who caught the bachelor Anderson's eye immediately. Ella suffered a life threatening illness about 1911, and her letters from the hospital reveal a woman who missed her children dreadfully. "My dear little sunshine," begins one. Letters from Dr. Page D. Barlow,her brother-in-law and then a surgeon in practice near Wheeling, reveal that he directed the treatment which saved her life. She died ultimately after a long struggle with cancer.

She and her husband Allen Sharp made the W.A. Barlow farm into a showplace.

This note is from the recollections of Nancy Bruns:  Effie was the youngest of the Barlow children of the second family. She married Joel Peck and lived for many years in the Huntington, WV area where she was well known for her church work. Effie was a favorite of Anderson who liked to tease her. In their later years, when Effie visited Anderson, he would inquire of his daughter about the food. "Is this the chicken that took sick and died yesterday,' he would ask. Effie would not say a word but would pass up the chicken. Just in case. On one occasion when he'd gone too far, she packed up and moved over to stay with Asa
