New DNA results posted in June 2007 prove this family to be a part of the William Barlow of Robeson Co NC and of
Branson Barlow of Clarke Co Alabama

'DNA Project'

1.

James B. Barlow, b 1795 in North Carolina [C1850], farmer in Marshall Co Mississippi [C1850], and died before 1860, in Marshall Co Mississippi.

He married Sarah Biggs, she born 1812 in North Carolina [C1850], or 1805 [tombstone] and died after 1893 [tombstone]s burial in Tula Cemetery, Hamlet of Tula, Lafayette Co Mississippi.

I found a James Barlow living in New Hanover Co Virginia on the census. Apparently the Barlow's had something to do with a mill, I believe it was called "Barlow's Mill".   This "Barlow's Mill" was owned by a Thomas Barlow, who I think may be the father of James B. Barlow. [KB]    Note from Susan....work from a professional genealogist has shown that Thomas of Hanover Co Virginia is a member of the Robert T. Barlow family, who eventually came to Arkansas.  DNA from that family does not match with that of James Barlow's family.

Note from Susan:  DNA testing shows the relationship to the William Barlow of Robeson North Carolina and Branson Barlow of Alabama to be very closely related.  In studying further, I noted that Marsh Barlow, son of William Barlow, has a son James mentioned in his will, whose age would be correct to be this particular person.

In the NC marriage bonds, I find a James Barlow marrying Anna Smith on January 20, 1817 in Robeson Co NC, who could have may have been a first wife of James.    I don't know if anyone has researched the Biggs name, but there are several Biggs families in Robeson Co NC, from 1790 to present time.  Is it possible the daughter Ann was named for a first wife, Ann?  This, I know is grasping straws, but an avenue to research.    [SBH]

3.
Ann J. Barlow, born 1835 [C1850], 1837 [C1860], or 1839 [C1870] in North Carolina or Arkansas [C1870] .  She either married, or died before 1880, as she was no longer in the family census records.
4.

Alexander Barlow, born 1838 [C1850], 1839 [C1860], 1843 [C1870]. or 1841 [C1880] in North Carolina, and died November 22, 1902, in Craighead Co Arkansas.

5.

Elisha A. Barlow, born 1840 [C1850, 80], 1841 [C1860], or 1842 [C1870], April 1840 [C1900] in Tennessee, and died April 18, 1901 in Woodruff Co Arkansas. [OBIT]

6. Bolata M. / Baldy Barlow, born  1841 in Mississippi.    Nothing further after the 1860 census.
7.

James E.M. Barlow, born December 02, 1844, and died  February 02, 1925 buried in Bethlehem Cemetery, Marshall Co Mississippi.

8.

William Barlow, born c1854-56 in Mississippi, no longer in census records after 1870.  He may have moved out of Mississippi.

 
3.

Alexander Barlow, born 1838 [C1850], 1839 [C1860], 1843 [C1870]. 1841 [C1880] or April 1854 [C1900] in North Carolina, and died November 22, 1902 in Craighead Co Arkansas. [MR] 

He married 1.  Frances A. c1868-69.  Born August 12, 1845, and died November 29, 1872, burial in Bethlehem Methodist Cemetery, Marshall Co Mississippi. [LB]
Perhaps she was a Morgan. I found in the 1860 census of Marshall Co Mississippi, a Polly Morgan, age 40, most likely a widow, with a daughter, Artilla, age 16, who may very well be Frances Artilla. The age would be correct.

He married 2. Martha.

I am sure Martha is Elisha's wife, but it does appear she is living in the house next to Elisha.  Probably a mistake on the part of the census taker.  I believe J.M. will be James M., brother of Elisha, and M.J., his wife.

I wonder about the first 3 children, they show their father and mother born in Tennessee, making me think they may be adopted children. The census does not show the relationship of Sarah, but she is surely his mother, and Permenious, is brother to James, son to Sarah.

I tried to find Bauss / Baus / Bauce / Boss / Bass / Bose / Bause / Bouse / to fit into this family in 1900, but was unable to find any with matching criteria.

Georgia is his step-daughter, and is a Worsham, but  is apparently using the Barlow name.

This may or may not be James -  J. M. Barlow Private Co B, 1st MS Cav

Children of James Barlow and Martha Barlow are:

i. Walter Barlow
This may be a child of Mollie and her first husband, perhaps James adopted her, see birthplaces for parents in the 1880 census.
ii. Sarah Barlow , may be the same as Nannie.
This may be a child of Mollie and her first husband, perhaps James adopted her, see birthplaces for parents in the 1880 census.
iii.

Joseph Jackson Barlow, born December 25, 1875 in Marshall Co Mississippi, [IGI] and died 15 November 1922 in Dubbs, Tunica Co Mississippi. [IGI]

This may be a child of Mollie and her first husband, perhaps James adopted her, see birthplaces for parents in the 1880 census.

He married Mattie Davis on November 26, 1899 in Lafayette Co Mississippi [IGI] The daughter of Robert Davis and Martha Susan Oswalt, she was born 21 January 1888 in Tula, Lafayette Co Mississippi, and died 17 July 1970 in Oxford, Lafayette Co Mississippi [IGI]

  Child of James and Mollie is:

John R. Barlow, born April 1880 in Mississippi. 

He married Allie B. Drye on April 30, 1902 in Lafayette Co Mississippi.  The daughter of Charles Franklin Dry, she was born March 24, 1877 in Tippah Co Mississippi, and died February 11, 1959 in Mississippi Co Arkansas, burial in Manila Cemetery, Manila, Mississippi Co Arkansas.   They moved to Manila, Mississippi Co Arkansas.  They apparently divorced, or John is deceased, as Allie B. married Fred Morris/Maurice Jones on September 01, 1917 in Mississippi Co Arkansas.

04 April 1910 Big Lake Mississippi Co Arkansas, 2nd marriage for both parties, Allie has borned 2 children, both living:
Morris F. Jones, age 33, born in Illinois, Allie B. Jones, wife, age 31, born in Mississippi, and Sarah N. Jones, daughter, age 7, born in Mississippi (Sarah should be listed as Barlow, step-daughter)     Census Image

The 1920 census shows Nettie, age 17, name correctly shown as Barlow, and Clyde, age 23, is in the household, her married name is Wilson (though no husband is shown), and Clyde's daughter, Nettie Wilson, age 4.   Also in the home is 21 year old son, Everett Jones, born in Illinois, whom I assume is from Fred's previous marriage.     Census Image  

The 1930 census shows Allie as divorced though the 1940 census shows her as widowed.  Allie has in her home daughter, Nettie S. McCullough, age 28, though no husband is listed, along with her children, Travis and Billie A. McCullough and also Clyde's daughter, Nettie Layton Wilson, age 14.  No record of Clyde or of Mr. McCullough. Maurice F. Jones is living in another home as a boarder, shown as married. 

The 1940 census of Manila, Mississippi Co Arkansas shows Allie with grandchildren Travis L. and Billy A. McCullough, and her widowed sister, Belle Nash.  I find no record of Nettie McCullough or of Clyde and Nettie Wilson.  

Allie had 2 children:

Clyde Barlow (female), born February 15, 1896 in Mississippi, and died April 01, 1977, burial in Manila Cemetery, Manila, Mississippi Co Arkansas.   It is unclear if John fathered Clyde, however, she used the Barlow surname.   Clyde married a Mr. Wilson and had one child, Nettie Layton Wilson, born June 02, 1915 in Arkansas, and died October 07, 2004, burial in Manila Cemetery, Manila, Mississippi Co Arkansas.  In 1910, I find 14 year old Clyde Barlow, living in the home of Dan and Eddie Jones, Oxford Beat, Lafayette Co Mississippi, she is listed as their niece.   (Eddie Jones is Allie's sister)   Census Image   

Nettie Sarah Barlow, born October 17, 1902 in Mississippi.  She married Cecil Bryan McCullough of Stone Co Arkansas.  He was born November 02, 1899 in Arkansas.  They had two children:  Travis Lynn McCullough, born January 04, 1923 in Mississippi Co Arkansas, and died November 22, 1973 in Mississippi Co Arkansas, burial in Manila Cemetery, Manila, Mississippi Co Arkansas, and Billie A. McCullough.   I found no record of the marriage of Nettie and Cecil McCullough, however, I did find a that a license had been procured for Nettie S. Barlow and H.B. Flatt on March 15, 1908 in Mississippi Co Arkansas, however, it was never returned, so apparently the marriage was called off.

BARLOW - POE - ALDERSON - ADAY families

Elisha Barlow married Martha Alderson, 30 August 1866, in Marshall Co, Mississippi. All of my "Poe" family migrated eventually to Marshall County and married into the families in the early 1800's. I find more on all the other families usually and not much on my own, "Poe". The Barlows in reference were living next door to William and Betsy Poe in 1850. Like the Poe's, they came from North Carolina; I would be willing to bet that Betsy was a Barlow. I just don't know how to prove it. My major milestone will be linking William Poe to the Poe's in Chatham Co North Carolina. The Barlows lived between two Poe's, two Williams to be exact. Both are my descendents.

William Poe age 59 Farmer owned 2500 acres and was from North Carolina
Betsy Poe age 52 also from NC -Chatham Co NC- born January 06, 1800, died and is buried in Marshall Co October 04, 1857, killed in a tornado. This inscription was on her headstone. She is buried in Bethlehem Cemetery. William Poe is a mystery.

There children were:

William Green Poe - W.G. Poe born c1817-
M y great great grandpa Blakely Poe - J.J.B. Poe born in NC born c1820
Duncan Poe born 8 years later! in Texas born c1828
Martha A. Poe born 4 years later!!! in Texas born c1832. She married James Greer.
George Poe born in Texas c1833
Joseph Poe born in Texas c1836
Uraney Poe born in Mississippi c1838
Lafayette Poe born in Mississippi 4 years later! c1842
Alexander Poe born in Mississippi c1844
Silas Jones also on the 1850 census in the household -not a laborer- He was born in Texas c1828

On the census of 1850 William Green Poe had married Minerva Poe and moved next door to the Barlows. His headstone was in Bethlehem Cemetery, Marshall Co Mississippi also, but has been destroyed since then. My Aunt Cecil Poe Simmons, about 85 years old now told me he was a Mason and had a Masons -Woodsmans-head- stone. She said she doesn't know what happened to it. 

W.G. Poe's children from the 1850 census are:

H. E. Poe -Hasten- born c1844 in Mississippi He married Mary A. Ray, January 28, 1883
Mary A. Poe born c1846 in Mississippi. She married William J. McElroy or Macelroy - not sure of the spelling on May 24, 1866
Green Berry Poe born c1848 in Mississippi
Minerva, William Green Poe's wife died after the birth or during the birth of her last child. We don't really know. 

William Green Poe and Minerva had more children. They are:

Sarah Elizabeth Poe born in Mississippi 1851 Sarah died April 2, 1877 in Lafayette Co Mississippi. She married Tobias H. Lee Wright in Lafayette Co Mississippi, November 14, 1872
Zollie Coffer Poe - Z.C. Poe born in Mississippi c1856. He married Lola Swinney -native American- in Prentiss Co Mississippi, March 7, 1876. I think she was Chickasaw.
America Poe born in Mississippi c1856
Robert G. Poe born in Mississippi c1858
Mahaley Poe born in Mississippi c1859

After Minerva died, William Green Poe remarried Elizabeth Sturdivant / Studivant.

Their children are:

Land and Property Records for Marshall County, Mississippi shows a deed transaction referencing William Green Poe as the land owner. Joseph H. Poe and others dated 11th day November 1872. 80 acres of land. I couldn't read the upper half of the document. I really don't know what was actually going on here, but it seems reasonably safe to assume that all these people I am about to list for you were involved in this deed transaction. The others listed were including Joseph H. Poe are: J.J.B. Poe - he married Margaret Aday A.P. Poe "Alexander P. Poe" - I don't know which of these others is his family yet G. B. Poe "Green Berry Poe" ,Ditto J.L. Aday and Mary Aday, E.A. Barlow - male, Martha "Alderson" Barlow, J.W. White, ? Eliza White, ? Martha Poe Greer, James Greer, Martha Greer, - child I presume, B. Alderson, J. Alderson, George W. Alderson, B.F. Alderson, W.G. Alderson, Jerry Alderson .  These were the names on this document. Previous records show: John Aday married Mary Alderson, Lucinda "Cindy" Aday married B. Alderson - Benjamin Margaret Aday married J.J.B. Poe. Elisha Barlow married Martha Alderson. Just which one of my ancestors married into the Alderson family is still a mystery as well as the Barlow mystery. These families were all tied in from William Green Poe's first family, unless of course, he had another family previous to this that I am not aware of. Is there also a relationship here?
