There is a Martha Barlow, age 70, born in Missouri, in the 1910 Labette Co Kansas census, in an insane asylum, but I don't believe it is the one in question.
Known children of James and Martha are:
Eliza J. Barlow, died before 1900, perhaps before 1870
Ida Barlow, died before 1900
Lincoln Grant Barlow was born October 1865 in Illinois, and died January 1963 in Coffeyville, Montgomery Co Kansas. (Leona Muckleroy) His wife's name is unknown, he married before 1894, she is deceased by 1900, leaving him to raise a son, Merle Barlow who was born in October 1894.  In 1910, Lincoln G., age 45, a widower, and son Merle, age 16 are living with Oscar and Maud Windham (Grant's sister), and in 1920, Grant, age 55, a widower is living Wichita, Sedgwick Co with Merle, age 25, and his wife, Ruth, also aged 25.   A Rootsweb record shows Lincoln's wife to have been Wilhemina Sarah Isham, who died in March 1895.
