DNA Testing has proven that the family of Alfred Hirton Barlow and of John Barlow and Martha Wadell are of this lineage.  If anyone can connect these families, we'd sure love to hear from you.  It has also proven that their is no relationship to the family of William Barlow and Edith Mathoda who lived in close proximity to this family.

Died, of Typhoid Fever, at his residence in Laurens County, on the 19th of September, and twentieth day of his illness. James Barlow was aged 64 years, 7 months and 1 day.

Seldom has it been the lot of any one to record a death which has been more widely felt or more deeply lamented than that of brother Barlow. He was a native of Edgefield District S.C., came to Georgia in the 21st year of his age, and settled in Laurens County on the very plantation on which he died.

In 1826 he connected himself with the Baptist church at Rocky Creek and was baptized by Reverend John Ross, in July of that year. In August he had the happiness to see his beloved wife follow his Divine Master in the ordinance of baptism, and in September he was elected Deacon; an office which he filled with honor till the day of his death.

His lot on earth, though prosperous so far as temporal things are concerned, was not without its trials and afflictions. He lived to mourn the oss of two, amiable companions (with the former of whom he lived past 20 years, and with the latter 20 years, 2 months and some days) and of seven children, three of whom had arrived at the years of maturity yet he bore his trials with …

As a father, he was singularly blessed in his family. Of nine children who reached maturity he lived to see all but one become members of the church, and all become honorable respected, and ___ members of the community.

At the residence of her husband, near Americus, on the 17th inst., Sister Amanda Barlow, aged 37 years, 6 months, and 11 days. In 1843 she was baptized upon a profession of her faith in Christ, and united with the Baptist Church in Americus, of which she continued a devoted and consistent member until this relation was dissolved by death. During her last illness, which was of more than three months continuance, she suffered very severely, but was never heard to murmur. To the will of God she seemed entirely resigned, and often referred to her approaching end, but always spoke of it as "going home."

Her thoughts seemed to run much upon heaven, and she frequently spoke of it to her husband and others, as "the better land." She was speechless for three weeks before her death, but still gave evidence by signs, that her faith in the Redeemer was unshaken. But she is gone, and has left a heart~stricken husband, a sorrowing sister, and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her loss. But while they drop the tear of sorrow, they will ever think of her as a rejoicing spirit in the world of glory.

May God comfort the bereaved!

Died, in Americus, on the 19th ult., of Typhoid Fever, James Judson Barlow in the twenty fifth year of his age.

He was confined to his room five weeks but was never heard to murmur. He presented an example of the most perfect resignation to the will of God which it has ever been the privilege of the writer to witness.

The day before his death he requested an interview with his pastor, in which he stated, as well as his strength would permit, his desire for a stronger faith in the Redeemer, asking that prayer might be made to that effect.

On the day of his decease he called his brothers to his bed~side, and gave them direction concerning the settlement of his affairs. He said he wished them to convey his remains to Laurens County, and bury them beside his mother.

.....At a few minutes before 10 o’clock at night he fell asleep in Jesus, passing gently.....

He has left an aged father, several brothers and sisters.

Double listed in the 1870 census:  I believe the John J. Hale made the census, then remade it again a week later.   The first one has mistakes, ie...Amelia is listed as Mary, and her age is one year younger than on the latter record. Emily lost a year of age in the newer record.  They lost a lot of money, John lost all of his, and the boarder is also missing from the second record.  Apparently they have also moved, as none of the neighbors are even the same.    In the first record they live two doors from William W. and Lizzie Barlow.

He married 2) LOUISIANA DEATS BUTLER, daughter of James Deats and the widow of William Archer Butler. She was born on 02 December 1832  [Boddie]  After the death of John Harvin Barlow in 1871, she, her children and several of her step-children moved to Texas.

By Lundie W. Barlow

Louisiana Caroline Davis, daughter of Benjamin and Martha Taylor Davis, was born in 1824 and was married December 22, 1841 to John Harvin Barlow of Lowndes Co Alabama, a planter.

Their youngest son was John Davis Barlow

Louisiana Caroline Davis Barlow preceded her husband and he died on October 09, 1871. He was born February 09, 1816 in Laurens Co Georgia, but became a resident of Autagua after his marriage, removing thence about 1860 to the adjoining county of Lowndes where his home plantation was called Pleasant Hill.

The children of John and Caroline were:

Martha Anne, Thomas Wade, William Franklin, Robert Merritt, Mary Emma, wife of Jesse Deane Boring, James Judson, Ella Amelia, wife of William Buchanan, and John Davis Barlow.

John Harvin Barlow married secondly, in 1864, Louisiana, daughter of James Deats, and widow of William Archer Butler.

By her he had three children:

Janie Lanier, wife of B.C. Morrison, Laura Harvin, wife of W.J. Suggs, and Joseph Foster Barlow.

After the death of their father, these children removed to Texas with their mother and several of their half brothers and sisters.

Being too old for active duty in the War between the States, John Harvin Barlow served with the Lowndes County Home Guards.

His eldest son, Thomas Wade Barlow, enlisted when only sixteen years of age in the Alabama Battery of the Jeff Davis Artillery, was captured at Spotsylvania Court House on May 01, 1864 and died in an army hospital the following year.

John Harvin Barlow was a Mason; a Deacon of the Baptist Church; and Justice of Peace of Lowndes County. He died in Americus, Georgia, on October 09, 1871.

The following notice of his death appeared in the weekly Sumter Republican, Americus newspaper of that time:

Mr. John Barlow, an esteemed citizen of Alabama, died in this place on Monday night last. He had been on a visit to his brothers, Doctors WW and WJ Barlow, and contracted the disease from which he died. He leaves a wife and nine children.

His remains were escorted to Oak Grove Cemetery by the members of the Masonic Fraternity and a large number of mourning friends in vehicles. The solemn Masonic rites were held over the remains.

DR. JOHN W. DAVIS, father of Louisiana Caroline Davis Barlow

DR. JOHN W. DAVIS, a retired physician and surgeon of Autauga county, Ala., was born here in 1838, the son of Benjamin, born in Brunswick county, Va., in 1789, and Martha (Taylor) Davis, born in Oglethorpe county, Ga., in 1797. Maj. Benjamin Davis was a soldier of the war of 1812 and was one of the pioneer settlers of Autauga county, having come here in the year 1818 or 1819; here he married, and became quite popular—at one time representing Autauga county in the state legislature and at another time serving as tax collector. He was a well-to-do farmer and died, in 1863, at the age of eighty-four years, a life-long Methodist. Mrs. Martha Davis was a daughter of Benjamin Taylor, who came to Alabama from Georgia and settled in Autauga county many years ago; she died in 1873, at the age of seventy-seven years. These parents had born to them nine children, viz: Mary Ellen, deceased wife of German Fike; Dr. Benjamin F., deceased; Warren Merritt, killed when young, by a falling tree; Balert Henry; Louisiana, deceased wife of John H. Barlow; Dr. Thomas Asbery, of Anniston, Ala., who served as captain of company G, Sixth Alabama infantry, and later as surgeon of the regiment, and later still as brigade surgeon under Gen. Gordon; Laura T., wife of William Carver, of Autuagaville; Mary, deceased wife of J. H. Golson, also deceased; and Dr. John W. Dr. John W. Davis was educated at the school of his district and at Summerfiled, Dallas county; he then read medicine with his brothers; attended the university at New Orleans, and graduated, in 1859, from the medical department of the university of Atlanta, Ga., fully equipped for the practice of his profession. Early in 1861, he joined company G, Sixth Alabama infantry, and with it went to Virginia, where he was taken prisoner by the enemy the day before the first battle of Bull Run, and was confined in prison at Washington, D. C., for six months, when he was paroled. On his return to his native state he engaged in the practice of his profession for nine months in Perry county; was then detailed to take charge of the sick at the Alabama salt works in Clarke county, and at the end of another period of nine months joined the artillery at Mobile; was sent to Fort Gaines, where he was again captured, and for three months confined in the barracks at New Orleans, and for four months on Ship Island, and was exchanged at the latter place in January, 1865, returned home, resumed his practice and engaged in farming. In 1867 he married Miss Astoria J., daughter of Dr. John and Clarissa Shackleford, of Autauga county. Both these parents are now deceased, the father having died when Mrs. Davis was a little girl. He was a son of Gen. Shackelford, one of the pioneers and one of the most prominent citizens of Autuaga county. Dr. Davis abandoned the practice of his profession a few years after the close of the war, and since devoted his entire attention to his agricultural interests. He owns 1,350 acres of rich land, all secured by his own efforts. The doctor is a member of the Autaugaville lodge, No. 449, F. & A. M., and with his wife is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church.

contributed new information for William Franklin Barlow in July 2013, writes:
I have never felt comfortable with all of the early deaths of John Harvin's children. At this point, I am wondering if the names are even correct for the other children...I can't find real documentation, other than Mr. Weathers writings, that verify the full names. I just think James Judson, Martha Annie, Robert Merritt are out there....at least some documentation to verify the claimed deaths. Sorry to be shaking up Mr. Weathers' tree...but, I feel certain we may be able to find some of the "who are they?" Barlows.
iv.
ROBERT MERRITT BARLOW, born in 1850 probably in Autauga Co Alabama. He did not marry.  (1860-70 census)
8 v.
MARY EMMA BARLOW, born 20 November 1853 in Alabama, and died 17 November 1893, burial in Rose Hill Cemetery, Taylor Co Texas.
vi.
ELLA AMELIA / AURELIA BARLOW, born 07 October 1857 in Alabama, and died 22 June 1929, burial in Rose Hill Cemetery, Taylor Co Texas.
She married 1) WILLIAM BUCHANAN and 2) JESSE DEANE BORING, widower of her sister, Mary.  Checking Texas, Alabama and Georgia for 1900, I could not find a William Buchanan married to Ella, Amelia, or Aurelia. I could not locate Jesse Boring in the 1910 census either.
vii.
JAMES JUDSON/JACKSON BARLOW, born in 1855.  He did not marry. (perhaps he is Jimmy in the 1880 census with Elizabeth Barlow, along with sister, Ella)
9 viii.
JOHN DAVIS BARLOW, born on 20 November 1859, probably in Autauga Co Alabama, and died on 17 March 1942, at Jacksonville, Duval Co Florida.
Children of John and Louisiana Deats are: [none shown in the 1870 census]

WADE J. BARLOW3, son of James Barlow and Rebecca Harvin, was born 20 January 1820 in Laurens Co Georgia, and died 17 August 1902 in Dooly Co Georgia, burial in Snow Springs Methodist Church Cemetery near Unadilla, Dooly Co Georgia.   He was a physician in Americus, Sumter Co Georgia

He married JANIE H. BROWN on 01 June 1847.  She was born 1830 in Georgia, and died 05 February 1888 in Dooly Co Georgia, burial in Snow Springs Methodist Church Cemetery, near Unadilla, Dooley Co Georgia.
In a letter dated 08 October 2013, William Baird, gr-gr grandson of Wade, writes:

The first reference to him (Wade) that I heard was made by my grandmother, Laurie Barlow Baird, although she didn't use his name.  She said her paternal grandfather lived with them in Unadilla and that he had a wooden leg as a result of a war injury.  She mistakenly thought that it had been the Spanish-American War, but WJB was 78 at the time of that conflict.  So it must have been the War Between the States.  And Find-a-Grave shows a photo of his grave with a CSA marker indicating that he was a private in the cavalry.  So far I have not found any independent reference to his injury.

My grandmother had no idea what an important man her grandfather had been before the War. He was a physician and an alderman on the first city council of Americus, Georgia. He served as one of his father's three executors. He build one of the landmark houses in Americus, which is still inhabited. He was also a state representative from Sumter Co Georgia.   The census records before the War refer to him as physician in Sumter County.  In 1870 and 1880, he was merely farmer in Sumter County.  Later he shows up in the household of his son, WWB in Unadilla.  I interpret this as being unable to continue his 'doctoring' after his war disability and ultimately becoming dependent on his son.

I write these things down to provide evidence of his crippling war injury and to explain the disconnect in his life.

The Weekly Republican, Sumter Co Georgia      November 1884       (Can anyone identify the Wade J. Barlow for whom Wade J. was named, per this news article)

Dr. W.J. Barlow is on a visit to his namesake and relative, Dr. Wade J. Barlow of Leeton. The Dr. has a varied experiences and has a remarkably rententive and accurate memory. He was born in South Carolina and his father moved to Augusta when he was a boy and but little of that new large and beautiful city was in existence. When he was about ten years of age he went to Virginia to get a small legacy, left him by a deceased aunt, and was at the burying of Gen. George Washington, at Mount Vernon. He says it was a very wet day, and everybody in the country was there. He was also with Jackson in his war. Spoke of the battle of New Orleans. His description was very like the historical reports, but more life-like and interesting. He described the approach of the English troops as very cool and steady. The Americans reserving their fire until the English were close to the cotton bag battlement, and some had even climbed up on the bags. He says Gen. Packingham was riddled with balls when about a hundred yard distant, and his regulars were mowed down by hundreds. That being repulsed they retreated, and before the reserves came up the mail arrived and announced that peace had been concluded for ten days.

"How did you come out in the battle Doctor," Inquired your interlocutor.

"Why sir, I imprudently mounted on the breastwork, and was complimented with a ball in my right shoulder which disabled my right arm for some time."

The Dr. was reduced by the late war, losing his negroes and all his stock on his plantation in Virginia. For several years he has been engaged in the orange groves of Florida, where he has an interest in that line. The climate does not agree with him, and we regret to add that since he has been at Dr. Barlow's on Thursday last, he had quite a shaking ague. He is a remarkably interesting man, converses freely and instructively.

It would have been a pleasure to have a more full interview with this old gentlemen; but he was still suffering from his ague.         Contributed by Wm. Baird

     After a thorough search of census records, I have been unable to locate anyone who might be this Wade J. Barlow. If anyone has information, please do share.

WADE BARLOW DIES IN DOOLY
Former Prominent Citizen of Americus Passes Away

Dr. Wade Barlow, a venerable and esteemed citizen of Dooly county, died suddenly Saturday at his house at Snow. The information was conveyed here in a telegram to his son-in-law, Dr. D.M. Borum, and was a shock to himself and family as well as to Dr. Barlow's many friends.

He had not been ill at all, and death was probably the result of advanced years and general breaking down of all the vital forces without warning. That Dr. Barlow none of the older citizens of Americus are better remembered.

He was one of the pioneers of Sumter county, and has know Americus since it was a struggling village. For a half century he resided here, being actively engaged in business, besides having large planting interests. A man of wealth and influence, he did much for his city, county, and state.

As a practioner of medicine, he was widely knownhere in years agone.

Some time after the death of his wife Dr. Barlow removed to Dooly county and has since resided at Snow. Despite his advanced age= 86 years- he was a man of indomitable energy and for several years past has been actively engaged in business there with his son, William Barlow, with whom he lived.

Many are there here today who will hear of the death of this brave old pioneer citizen with deepest regret.

Dr. Barlow is survived by a son and three daughters, William Barlow, Mrs. Ivey, of Dooly county, Mrs. George Netherton of Macon, and Mrs. D.M. Borum, of Americus.
