JOSEPH1 BARLOW died abt. 1704 in Chester Co Pennsylvania
Elaine Jeter sends the following, January 2006:  I recently purchased a reprint of "The Lancaster Family; A History of  Thomas and Phebe Lancaster of Bucks County, Pennsylvania and Their descendants from 1711 to 1902".  Published by Harry Fred Lancaster, Columbia City, Indiana, 1902. (reprinted privately, 2005).

I have always thought the Joseph Barlow immigrants of PA were most likely from Yorkshire or Cheshire in England, chiefly because those were the places that many of the Quakers lived, and they had plenty of Barlows also. However, I have just turned up an interesting statement recorded by Rachel (Lancaster) Benson 1790-1886 (yes she managed to get to be 96 years old), who was the daughter of Jesse Lancaster 1751-1833 (he was the oldest son of Rachel Barlow 1728-1796 and Benjamin Lancaster 1731-1791). Citation is from p.280 of the Lancaster book cited above.

"Benjamin Lancaster, my grandfather, married Rachel Barlow, whose parents came from Wales, and had five children: Jesse (my father), Joseph, Ann, Benjamin and Nathan. They removed to Maryland about the close of the Revolutionary War, I judge, and before any of the children were married.

"I cannot tell whether he bought the land, or it was granted to him, however he owned several hundred acres thereabout, made the first improvement at the White House <in Hartford County MD> and lived there long after. Then, after my mother died, <they> (i.e., Benjamin Lancaster and Rachel Barlow Lancaster) came and kept house and ended their days here."

Elaine's comments:

Perhaps Joseph Barlow with his son Joseph (and maybe even a wife ???) came from Wales rather than from Cheshire or Yorkshire (where we have always suspected he originated). The above is difficult to decipher because there are too darned many Rachels in the family, but here's what I think it means:

Benjamin must have known that his parents (Thomas and Phebe <Wardell> Lancaster) had come from England, so one presumes that Rachel (Lancaster) Benson could have actually known from her own grandmother that the Barlows came from Wales rather than from England. In any case she obviously believed that was their origin. Rachel (Barlow) Lancaster died in 1796, Benjamin Lancaster died in 1791. Rachel (Lancaster) Benson was the daughter of Mary Parsons, Wife #2 of Jesse Lancaster 1751-1833. Mary (Parsons) Lancaster probably died in 1790 [the same year that Rachel (Lancaster) Benson was born]; Jesse (her father) did not remarry until around 1795 or 1796 <he married Elizabeth Dyer at that time> which would be about the time that Jesse's mother (Rachel Barlow Lancaster) died. So this all makes sense if dissected. That being said, Rachel (Lancaster) Benson was about 5 or 6 years old when Rachel (Lancaster) Barlow died, so she would probably remember her grandmother who lived with tthe family, but it seems doubtful she would have conversed with her about where her parents had come from ??? On the other hand, her father Jesse certainly must have known...

At this point I think it is entirely possible that the Barlows immigrated from Wales rather than from Yorkshire or Cheshire. I guess we can't go wrong with "British Isles". ? At least I think we need to give some weight to the Welsh possibility.

JOSEPH2 BARLOW (JOSEPH1) was born c1690 possibly in Chester Co Pennsylvania or British Isles, and died c1738 in Limerick Twp, Philadelphia Co Pennsylvania

He married ANN EVANS after 1720 probably in Limerick Township, Philadelphia Co Pennsylvania, daughter of JOHN EVANS and JEAN TEATE.   She was born c1692, and died 1744 Limerick Twp, Philadelphia Co Pennsylvania.
JOSEPH BARLOW:    Probate records located in Chester County refer to the death of a Joseph Barlow in 1704, with the inheritance going to his son, Joseph Barlow.  In any case, it does appear that the family was a Quaker family.   EJ 8/31/99

ANN EVANS:    Widow of Mathew Brooke, 1680-1720

Edson Barlow note:   Matthew Brooke died June 18, 1720, at Limerick, Montgomery Co Pennsylvania.  After the death of Mathew Brooke, she married Joseph Barlow, and the title of the acreage belonging to Mathew Brooke was titled to Joseph Barlow. She was still living on November 12, 1743, when she sold the property to her son, Matthew Brooke.
 Children of Joseph Barlow and Anne Evans are:
i.
ABIGAIL3 BARLOW married ORTLIP, name cited as Attlip in will of George Brooke d 1761
It is  probable that one of her sons was named Israel Ortlip (b.abt 1757). Israel Ortlip had a daughter named Susan Ortlip (b.abt 1770) who married John Coryell, and one of her Coryell daughters b.1812 was given the name Abigail Barlow Coryell. It is difficult to believe that this name selection could have been by chance.   EJ 2004

iii. HANNAH BARLOW married HOLLAND / HALLAM
iv. MARY BARLOW married FRANCIS HOVEN / HAVEN / DeHAVEN

3. ANN3 BARLOW (JOSEPH2, JOSEPH1)

She married EDWARD UPTEGRAVE, son of JACOB UPDENGRAF / UPTEGRAVE and ANNEKEN DeHAVEN (not proven, see note below)
We know that Ann's husband was named "Uptergrave" (however spelled), and we assumed (based on the will of her half-brother, George Brooke, d. 1761) that he was likely to be Abraham, since Abraham is also named in that will. However,  despite considerable work, I have been unable to find the sort of  "proof" that sticks for this marriage (wills, marriages, baptisms,  etc.), so I went looking through the "Updegrave" families to find a better candidate. You never know if you will find them as Opd..., Upd... Upt... Graff, Graef, Grave, Grove, etc. etc.

What I found is this:

Pennsylvania Wills, 1682-1834:   UPDEGRAVE, EDWARD. Perkiomen and Skippack.   March 11, 1775. November 24, 1787. 1.129

To wife Ann income of estate until son Joseph is 21. Afterward he to pay to wife yearly 7 pds. and maintenance. To son Joseph, 1 s. To son in law, Jacob Clemens, 1 s. To daughter Ann Clemens, 1 s.

Exec: Wife Ann Updegrave. Wit: John Lukens, John Edwards, Gottshalk Gottshalk.

So here is Edward "Updegrave" who is exactly the right age, with a wife named "Ann" and a son named "Joseph". Joseph is NOT a usual  family-name for the Updegrave's, but Ann Barlow's father and grandfather both bore that name. Very interesting... The will also tells us that son Joseph Updegrave was not yet 21 in the year 1787; and that daughter Ann Clemens' husband was Jacob Clemens. There are, of course, about a  zillion "Jacob Clemens" guys, but because I am also descended from the immigrant Gerhardt Clemens, I knew exactly which one: Jacob b Apr 12, 1749, d Jan.27, 1823, whose parents were Jacob b. abt 1704 d.1782 and Barbara Clemmer.

So for these reasons, I am concluding that Ann Barlow (d/o Joseph) did NOT marry Abraham Updegrave; instead her husband must have been Edward Updegrave. Edward's parents were Jacob Updegrave / Opdegrave b.1687 in Germantown, and Anneken IndeHoven / TenHeuve / DeHaven (another varying Dutch name, drat!!). Jacob Updegrave and Anneken were married in Bensalem, Bucks County, Apr 9, 1712 (Dutch Reformed Church). Their son Edward was born ca. 1720, so he is certainly the right age to be Ann Barlow's husband.
Children of Ann Barlow and Edward Uptegrave are:
i. ANN4 UPTEGRAVE, born about 1750.  She married JACOB CLEMENS
ii. JOSEPH UPTEGRAVE, born after 1754.

RACHEL3 BARLOW (JOSEPH2, JOSEPH1) was born March 03, 1727/28, and died 1796.

She married BENJAMIN LANCASTER October 26, 1749 in Prb. Gwynedd Monthly Meeting of Quakers, Montgomery Co, son of THOMAS LANCASTER and PHEBE WARDELL.  He was born December 31, 1731 in Wrightstown, Bucks Co Pennsylvania, and died 1791.
Rachel and her husband, Benjamin Lancaster moved to Harford Co Maryland in 1786 [Early Friends Families of Upper Bucks County]

1769; Rachel's family is part of the Gunpowder Monthly Meeting; August 31, 1769, note is made of her Daughter, Ann Lancaster, being "guilty of fornication and having a bastard child." Subsequent minutes show that her mother (i.e., Rachel) knew of the young man in the "liberty of her house", and that her father, Benjamin, had "taken to strong drink."

1770: Gunpowder Monthly Meeting: Rachel Lancaster, wife of Benjamin Lancaster, and four of her children, Jesse, Joseph, Benjamin and Nathan, were received into membership by a certificate from Deer Creek Monthly Meeting, dated 29th day of <??no month> 1770.

Members of this family are listed on several Gunpowder Upper 100 taxlists in Colonial and early Maryland state.

Benjamin Lancaster moved to Harford Co Maryland in 1768 (cf. Early Friends Families of Upper Bucks XXVI p.331)
Children of Rachel Barlow and Benjamin Lancaster are:
7 i. JESSE4 LANCASTER, born May 03, 1751; died November 26, 1833, Little Falls, Harford Co Maryland
ii. JOSEPH LANCASTER
He is most likely the Joseph Barlow who was enumerated in 1790 living in Washington Co Maryland. For census, Washington County reached all the way to the far western tip of MD - Alleghany County was created in 1789, but was not used by the census enumerators. It appears that his descendants may have moved into Fayette Co Pennsylvania around 1800 or so.   EJ 2005

In the partition of his father's real estate he was allotted the "Mansion House" and fifteen acres near the center of the 400-acre plantation. He later acquired, piece by piece, the allotments of his brothers and sisters, until he owned 235 acres of the homestead prior to his death on 2 mo.26, 1791. He was, like his father and mother, an accepted minister of the Society of Friends and a diligent and earnest member of Richland Monthly Meeting. He married, at Gwynedd Monthly Meeting, 11 mo. 15, 1753, Elizabeth Barlow, a sister to Rachel, the wife of his elder brother Benjamin. She was born 1729 and died 12 mo. 11, 1796

JOHN3 BARLOW I (JOSEPH2, JOSEPH1) was born after 1730 in Limerick Twp, Montgomery Co Pennsylvania, and died after 1800 in Limerick Twp, Montgomery Co Pennsylvania.

He married HANNAH SAVAGE December 17, 1760 in New Hanover, Montgomery Co Pennsylvania. She was born about 1740.
His father's name was Joseph Barlow, who was one of the early settlers of Limerick Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania in 1734, the following landholders were recorded in Limerick Township: Edward Nichols, 600 A; John Davy, 300; Enoch Davis, 300; John Kendall, 300; Owen Evans, 400; William Evans, 300; Joseph Barlow, 400; Peter Umstead, 250; Oliff (or Adolf) Pennypacker (Pennebacher) 250; Henry Reyner, 100; William Woodly, 150; Jonathan Woodly, 300; William Malsby, 200; Henry Peterson, 200; Peter Peterson, 100; Nicholas Custer, 7; Hironemus Haas, 250; Lawrence Rinker, 50; Stephen Miller, 170; Barnaby Coulson, 50; Martin Kolb, 150.
Reference: History of Montgomery County 1884

In the assessment of 1776, following taxables listed:
Henry Yost and John Davis, weavers, Peter Gerhart and John Sheef, blacksmiths; James Evans, joiner; Henry Ford, Conrad Eckleman and Michael Deemer, tailors, Yost Filman, cordwainer; and John Stetler and Peter Aichner, inn-keepers.

1776 assessment:
Matthew Brooke, 350 acres, 3 negroes, 4 horses and 8 cattle;
James Brooke, 160 acres, 1 negro, 2 horses, 3 cattle, and noted a loss by fire;
Rachel Brooke [widow of William Brooke, s/o Matthew Brooke], 190 acres, 1 horse, 2 cattle
George Brooke was mentioned as a tenant;
Benjamin and Thomas Brooke as single men.

Will of George Brooke [d.1761] calls John Barlow a "step-brother".   John was actually a half-brother of George - they had the same mother.
Reference: Pennsylvania Wills 1682-1834
Children of John Barlow and Hannah Savage are:
i. REBEAH4 BARLOW married Mr. CORBIN
Referred to in the will of John Barlow, born 1763; his sister.   Married name was Corbin in the will of John Barlow, her brother.

This name has been improperly transcribed as "Rebecca" in some genealogy resources.   Copy of original will has been examined; name there is Rebeah. EJ

Another transcribed source, may be inaccurate or may refer to another unidentified Barlow: "Rebecca Barlow, married William Curden 19 June 1797, Swedes Church, Philadelphia".   Original document has not been examined; unsure whether this is the sister of John Barlow. EJ

John Barlow was a carpenter by trade; though the family owned farmland and probably were also farmers, they lived in a house in Dunkerton from before 1900. This house was sold after 1910 when John Franklin Barlow died.
Quote of clipping from June 18, 1870 local newspaper:
BARLOW - CLEMENS
At Freeland, on June 4th, by Rev. J.H. Hendricks, Mr. John F. Barlow, of Limerick, Montgomery County, to Miss Mary M. Clemens, of East Pikeland.
Mary Malisa Clemens:  Peculiar spelling of middle name from Family Bible
She is buried beside her husband in Dunkerton, Iowa.
Census of 1870 shows Mary as wife of John F. Barlow, giving her age as 18. This corresponds with the 1851 birthdate. I believe the 1851 birthdate is correct, as it was also claimed by Mary herself during her lifetime, according to her children and grandchildren, and is on her gravestone as well.  EJ 3/9/99
Possibly Mary Malisa is a twin; a child with her identical birthdate is buried in East Vincent Hill Church; infant daughter of Jacob and Margaret...? EJ.

The 1920 US Census shows Nathan C., age 28, carpenter/house builder and Nora M., age 28, living in Reading City with their dau. Margaret M., age 7, and son Nathan, age 4 yrs 11 mos. 
While living at 725 N. 2nd, Reading, N.C., age 26, and his brother-in-law Clarence, age 24, registered for the draft on 06/05/1917.  In the WWI registration, Clyde’s (as he preferred to be called) status was that of Conscientious Objector.  He is described as of medium height with a slender frame, blue eyes and having dark brown hair. 
Per the 1930 US Census, they were living with their two children on Pricetown Road, Reading City, Muhlenberg Twp., Berks Co., PA.  Daughter Margaret, age 17, was a topper at a hosiery mill.  Their son, now called William, age 15, did not work.

Notes from Maureen Barlow Thompson re: Quaker vs. Lutheran/English vs. Welsh: It is difficult to determine if the Barlow family is Quaker or Lutheran in the early years. There are compelling reasons to believe the family was Quaker, such as the heavy Quaker population in the areas of Gynedd and Limerick Township and the Barlows’ business and social involvement with many prominent Quaker families of the day. Additionally, several of Joseph BARLOW’s descendants married well-known Quakers. Marrying outside the Quaker faith was not tolerated within the church and serious consequences followed in the form of “disownment.” Also, note the wording of Joseph1’s will: “Son Joseph…Friend Roland Powell, David….” Is “Friend” in this case referring to the traditional Quaker address or is it simply a reference to a comrade? Reasons to believe the family were members of the Lutheran faith are also compelling. Primarily, one finds records of the BARLOW family involved with or contained in several area Lutheran churches; e.g., New Hanover Lutheran Church, Alsace Lutheran, Grace Lutheran, and the very establishment of the Limerick Union Church. Why, then, did Nathan Clyde BARLOW register as a Conscientious Objector in World War I and why did the US Government approve this designation? CO status was not easily obtained at that time. My own father, William Nathan BARLOW, was adamant that the family was Lutheran. I lean toward believing the family was Lutheran in later years and originally came from England; other researchers believe firmly that they were members of the Religious Society of Friends from Wales. Elaine Jeter believes they are Welsh based on oral family history. The Barlows of England are both commonplace and well noted throughout history. Even if the family came directly from Wales to Pennsylvania, I still believe the family originated in England as is historically accepted. In any case, we can all agree the family was, in fact, from the British Isles.

Update: DNA test done on direct Barlow male descendant indicates this line is descended from the Barlows of Lancashire, England.

**Philadelphia County, PA was founded in 1682. The following indicates the changes over the years: 1752 – Berks is formed from the north half of Philadelphia Co. 1772 – Northumberland Co. is established, taking the north ¾ of Berks. 1784 - Montgomery Co. is formed from the north ¾ of Philadelphia Co. Finally, in 1811, Schuylkill County is drawn to include the north third of Berks County.
