Barlow Genealogy  

Barlow's Descending from the
Isle of Wight Virginia Families

Ancestors and Descendants

The following 2 genealogies are not documented, but are believed to be a part of the first group of IOW Barlow tested by DNA:
Iris Jesse Barlow and Lucy Wills

Iris John and Elizabeth Barlow   Dallas Co Alabama


Barlow of Isle of Wight    by Lundie W. Barlow

Group #1 DNA tested includes:

  Thomas Barlow and Elizabeth Roscoe Families 

Iris Alfred Hirton, William, John J., Cyrus Yancey, Michael Thomas and Willis Sowell Barlow   North Carolina, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas

A second group of Barlow's, also from the Isle of Wight VA do not have a DNA match with the first group. 

Iris Willis Wells Barlow and Mary 'Polly' Holdsworth of Williamsburg Virginia

Willis is thought to be the son of Jesse Barlow, Isle of Wight Virginia.    A DNA test has not been able to confirm that Jesse is Willis' father.  If Jesse is a brother of Thomas Barlow, Isle of Wight, (Group #1)as shown in Lundie Barlow's research, and he is also a father of Willis, then there must be some other reason that the DNA does not match, the possibilities are limitless, and may not ever be able to prove.  Adoption in the past, legal or not, would be the most likely reason.  We must also consider that these are two completely unrelated Barlow families that just happen to be living in the area in the same period of time.
