Brenda Kendig von Fehrn writes: I believe that Susan's father was Boston Frog listed in the 1790 Maryland census as living in Patapsco Lower Hundred, Baltimore, Maryland. As I have found no other Frogs in the area other than an Elizabeth in the marriage records which could be her sister. I'm still working on trying to verify that Boston was Susan's father.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES, BELMONT COUNTY, OHIO    Contributed by Brenda Kendig von Fehrn
"History of the Upper Ohio Valley" Vol. II, 1890.  Presented by Linda Fluharty from hard copies provided by Mary Staley & Phyllis Slater.  Pages 705-707.


WILLIAM B. KIRK, the prosperous merchant and wool dealer of Morristown,Belmont county, Ohio, is a representative of a very old and influential family. His great-great-grandfather's name was Alfancy Kirk, who was born in Scotland and came to this country in early manhood; the great- grand father's name was Adam Kirk, who was a physician. His three sons were William, Adam and Caleb. All that is known of the latter is that he owned a large flour-mill on the Brandywine. William, the grandfather of the subject of this sketch, and his brother Adam, left Chester county, Penn., in 1796, and moved to Fayette county, Penn. After a residence in the last named county of sixteen years, they came to Belmont county, Ohio.

In a few years Adam took up his abode in the western portion of the state, and nothing further is known of him or his family, except that a part of his sons went to Indiana. William Kirk remained in Belmont county until his death in the year 1842. His eight children were: Hannah, Samuel, Mary, Isaac, Robert, Phebe, Edith and William. The latter died when twenty-two years of age. The mother of these children was Edith. Robert lived to be eighty-two years old. Samuel died in his eighty-sixth year and Isaac in his eighty-seventh year.

Samuel was the father of William B. Kirk. He was born June 2, 1792. About 1816 he was joined in marriage to Rachael Jones, a native of Jefferson county, Va. Six of their children reached maturity. They were: Levi, Sarah A., Edith, William B., Samuel and Lydia H. William B., Sarah A. and Lydia H., still survive.

William B. Kirk was born in Belmont county, Ohio, July 8, 1822, on a farm within a mile of the village of Flushing. He obtained his education by his own efforts, working hard during the day, he would study at night by the light of a fireplace, getting what help he could from his father. He taught school for seventeen years, his first charge being near the town of Athens, Ohio.   November 27, 1845, he took Miss Ann Jinkins to wife. She is a daughter of James and Margaret Jinkins, the former a native of Virginia, who came to Ohio with his parents when a mere lad. Margaret (Barlow) Jinkins was born in Maryland, and came to Ohio with her parents when a small child. The father died in his eighty-seventh year, and the mother at the advanced age of ninety years. Mr. and Mrs. William B. Kirk are the parents of five children: Cyrus H., born September 18, 1846; John J., born February 16, 1849; Samuel A., born March 29, 1851, died November 5, 1853; Ralph W., born April 22, 1858, and Elwilla, born March 9, 1862.

August 7, 1862, Mr. Kirk entered the Union army as captain of Company B, One Hundred and Twenty-sixth regiment of the Ohio volunteer infantry. He was honorably discharged for disability, June 24, 1863. Captain Kirk has several highly complimentary official documents in his possession, setting forth his efficiency as an officer in the service and petitioning his admittance as an officer to the Invalid Corps. They are signed by the following distinguished officers: Lieutenant Colonel William Harlan, One Hundred and Twenty-sixth regiment Ohio volunteer infantry; B. F. Smith, colonel commanding the Third brigade, Third division, Third army corps; and Brigadier General B. F. Kelley. Mr. Kirk was prevented from further service however, by the ravages of disease. But his valor and patriotism are fully evidenced by his bravery and patriotism during the term of hard service in which he was engaged. Mr. Kirk has been honored by his fellow townsmen by being elected as clerk of the township, and also as a justice of the peace.

After the war he embarked in the mercantile and wool-buying business, and has since continued with much success. Mr. Kirk is a believer in the doctrines laid down by Swedenborg, but his wife is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. He is a member of the Robert Hallis post, of Barnesville, of the G. A. R., and is also a member of the F. & A. M., Hazen lodge, No. 251, and the I. O. O. F.  He has been Master of the Masonic lodge for many years, and has filled all the chairs in lodge No. 196 of the I.O.O.F.

+Cyrus H. Kirk married Kate Shepherd, and his four children are: Estella, James W., Anna C. and Mary L. Estella is the wife of Warren Cowen, whom she married January 22, 1890. John J. married Emma Lynn, by whom he has had three children: Irena, Gertrude and John W.   Ralph W. married Maggie E. Davis. His children are: Willis D., Ross L. and Hazen.

TOOK OWN LIFE
Jim Fields, Old Time Resident, Found Dead Yesterday Morning.

Our little city was visited by a tragedy yesterday morning when Jim Fields, an old-time resident, was found hanging to a tree in his back yard with life extinct.

He got up about 6 o'clock as usual and went out to look at his garden. In a short time after, his wife went out to call him to breakfast and found him dead. He had sat down on a box, tied a rope over a limb in an apple tree and then around his neck, pushed the box from under him and choked to death. His wife at once called help and took him down, but it was too late.

James W. Fields was born in Clinton county, Ohio, 61 years ago. The Fields family came to Harveyville in 1877. Jim grew up here where most of his life was spent except about 10 years spent in Colorado.  While there, he was injured in an accident, a large rock striking him on the head while he was engaged in road work. As a result of this, he was stricken with paralysis a short time later and has been an invalid ever since. It was only with much difficulty that he could get around, and he had not been down town for nearly a year. He was brought back to Alma after his stroke in 1912 and has lived here since. He bore his affliction with much patience and was always cheerful when his friends called.

He leaves his wife, who has cared for him so faithfully all these years, and his daughter Lucille of Emporia, besides his mother and all his brothers and sisters.

Funeral services will probably be held Saturday afternoon.
  SELL FIELDS, born 02 January 1866, Harveyville, Kansas, and died 30 December 1925, Kingsville, Texas
 
Alma Signal, January 07, 1926

Sell Fields, who died at his home in Kingsville, Texas, December 30, 1925, was born at Harveyville, Kansas, January 02, 1866, and came with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Fields, to Alma in 1877, where he lived until 1910, when he went to Kingsville, Texas where he has since made his home.

Soon after going to Texas, Sell secured a position with the Gulf State Railway Company as a bridge carpenter and after a few years was made boss and put in charge of the bridge gang and while engaged in this work in 1923, a bridge he was working on collapsed, and as he fell with the bridge, his leg was pinned under some heavy timber in a pool of stagnant water, where he was held for several hours before being released; the limb was broken and badly crushed; infection in the leg was soon discovered; he remained in the hospital and was getting along nicely when he contracted a severe case of Grip, this sapped his strength but he rallied and was through on the road to recovery, when erysipelas set in and he gradually grew weaker and weaker for weeks; then his mother, Mrs. Martha Fields, and his sister, Miss Alta Fields, of Manhattan, went to Kingsville and remained with him for sometime -- returning home about three weeks ago, when it was again thought that he was out of danger, but soon after his mother and sister left, he again contracted the Grip maladies, he was called to his reward.

Sell Fields was a good natured, generous, big hearted fellow and no man would go farther or quicker to help a friend, and the old time friends of the family sympathize with this good mother, brothers and sisters in the loss of a son and brother.

Funeral services were held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Fields, Sunday afternoon at 2:30, in charge of Rev. D.E. Jones, the Congregational minister, and the remains were laid to rest in the city cemetery.

Out of town relatives who attended the funeral were: Mrs. Martha Fields, Miss Alta Fields, Manhattan; Mr. and Mrs. Ted Fields, Rossville; Mrs. Eva Semelser, and Mrs. Josie Baker, Topeka.

Joe Woods, an old time friend of Sell's, accompanied the body from Kingsville, Texas, to Alma, and remained for the funeral services.

GONE TO REST

On Friday afternoon, January 14, 1898, at ten minutes of two, Joseph McPherson died at his residence in Harveyville. He had been a sufferer for many years with Bright's disease and for fourteen months he has never known a day free from suffering. At times his pain was pitiful to witness but it was all borne of a patience born of a spirit resigned to the will of One who doeth all things well.

He was born in Richland county, Ohio, May 12, 1831, where he lived until his parents moved to Clinton county. He lived there until February, 1869, when he brought his family to Kansas where he lived a quiet, well beloved Christian life until the grim messenger bade him come up higher. He was married to Miss Virginia Johnson Oct. 11, 1855, who made the journey of life pleasant for him by her untiring devotion. Cheerful, kind and willing, she smoothed the rough places as best she could. During his long sieige of suffering she ministered to his many wants night and day with an unflagging zeal that was a wonder to all. To them were born nine children, eight daughters and one son. Four daughters have preceded him to the better land, while he leaves a lonely wife, one son, W. E. McPherson, and four daughters, Mrs. Ella Turner of Orchard Grove, near Wilmington, Kansas; Mrs. Laura Yoacum of Argentine, Kansas; Mrs. Sadie Doggett who lately went to Arkansas; and Miss Mattie, the sixteen-year-old pet and darling of his old age.

All his family except Mrs. Doggett were with him at the time of his death, also his brothers, Hiram McPherson of Harveyville; F. McPherson of Alma, and Jos. Fields, a brother-in-law, of Alma.

He was taken suddenly worse last Sunday and never rallied. All that kind friends and the very best of medical skill could do was done but he assured them many times that it was no use, as it would be a short story now. He was so ready and anxious to go to his reward that it seems sinful to grieve for him, but the ties of nature are strong and while no one would call him to return to this sinful world, still there is an aching void in each heart, an empty armchair by the fireside, an empty place at the head of the table that are mute reminders of the dear one, who has laid down his armor and taken up his crown.

He has been a member of the Union Baptist church at Hopewell for many years and has lived an exemplary life in that church that his mourning friends may look to with pride. He was conscious and suffered terribly until about nine o'clock Friday morning, when he seemed to recognize no one and gradually sank until ten minutes of two came when he breathed his last. His funeral was held in the M.E. church in Harveyville at one o'clock Saturday, conducted by Rev. William Talley, assisted by Revs. Halbert and Tucker. Rev. Talley preached from Job 14:14 after which the remains were followed to the Harveyville cemetery by a long procession of relatives and friends who had gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to one who will be sadly missed by all. He was sixty-six years, eight months, and two days of age at the time of his death.

Beautiful flowers graced the pulpit and stands while Miss Dottie Walton at the organ and the choir furnished fine music especially the one song called "It is well with my soul", was so appropriate.

HARVEYVILLE:

The Quaker church is about enclosed.   Quick work, but then Hiram McPherson is one of the kind of carpenters that rush things.
Harveyville Monitor, September 09, 1909:

M.D. McPherson who has been here for the past month visiting his brother, H. McPherson, was an Alma Visitor last week. He expects to leave the latter part of the week for his home at Paintersville, Ohio. He will be accompanied as far as Osage City by H. McPherson and wife.
Alma Enterprise, Friday, April 09, 1926:

DIED:

The sad news came Friday of the sudden death of Hiram McPherson at his home in Harveyville. He had the flu this winter but thought he had recovered. He went out in the back yard of his home that morning and fell dead without warning.

Mr. McPherson was about 83 years old and had been a resident at Harveyville since the early '70s. He was born in Ohio and was a member of Co. D, 79th Ohio Inf., serving through the Civil War and coming here soon after and did many thousands of those eastern soldier boys.

He leaves his widow and two children, Mrs. W.J. Betts of Harveyville and Will of Chicago. F. McPherson of Alma is his brother but was unable to attend the funeral Sunday because of the weather and his own poor health.

Hi McPherson was a good citizen and Harveyville will miss him.
Osage County Chronicle, Burlingame, January 06, 1881

Died at Harveyville on Sunday, January 31, 1881, Mrs. Hiram McPherson, of lung disease.

At high noon on Thanksgiving Day, at the home of the bride's parents, near Harveyville, Miss Mable McPherson to Prof. Wm. J. Betts of Baldwin, Rev. Shepherd officiating.

Prof. Betts taught the Harveyville high school last year and evidently lost his heart at that time and now has come back to claim his bride, who is one of the popular ladies of that vicinity. They will make their home near Baldwin and the Enterprise most warmly congratulates them.

FERNAND3 MCPHERSON, son of WILLIAM MCPHERSON and SUSANNAH BARLOW, was born about 1851 in Clinton Co Ohio, near Wilmington, and died January 15, 1930 in Alma, Wabaunsee Co Kansas.

He married CHARITY ANN TRAPP September 02, 1885 in Alma, Wabaunsee Co Kansas. She was born June 12, 1842 in Danville, Illinois, and died March 07, 1929 in Kinsley, Kansas.
 
Alma Signal, Thursday, January 16, 1930:

One of Alma's oldest citizens, F. McPherson, died at his home some time Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning of Apoplexy. His wife died last March. He was born in Clinton County, Ohio, near Wilmington, where he lived until coming to Kansas in the early eighties.

Mack, as he was usually called, was a fine old gentleman, with a smile and pleasant greeting for all. He will be missed by many friends and his relatives who live in and near Harveyville.

Mr. McPherson had been in good health considering his age ans was down town almost every day during the winter. Tuesday evening his neighbor, Jim Gardenhire, because of the severe cold weather, went across the street to his home and helped him with a few chores and last saw him about 8 o'clock; the neighbors not seeing smoke from his chimney or a stir about the place, Mr. Gardenhire went to the home Wednesday about noon, and found the old gentleman lying on the floor in his night clothes by the bed dead. He had been in bed and gotten up when the stroke took him.

Funeral Friday morning at 10:00 at the house.
Harveyville Monitor, Thursday, January 23, 1930
(reprinted from the Alma Enterprise)

FOUND DEAD WEDNESDAY

The town was much surprised and shocked just after noon Wednesday when the report went round that F. McPherson had been found dead at his home in the north part of town.

Mac had been living alone most of the time since the death of his wife on March 7 except for the time he spent with the folks out at Kinsley. He was down town Monday. Jim Gardenhire went to see him Tuesday night and he seemed as well as usual. Jim stopped again Wednesday just after dinner and found him dead.



He had evidently gone to bed and had later gotten up and fallen over on the bed face downward with a sudden attack. Two of his brothers died suddenly in a similar manner. He had apparently been dead for several hours.

Mr. McPherson would have been 80 years old in May. He had lived here just 50 years, coming here in 1879 as nearly as we can learn. He was married to Charity Ann Watson Sept. 2, 1885, and since her death last spring he has been mighty lonesome.

He has no blood relatives here except his niece, Mrs. W.J. Betts of Harveyville. He was born near Wilmington, Ohio and a brother and sister are still living there. Funeral services were held at Alma Friday morning at ten o'clock.---Enterprise

Burial: Alma, Wabaunsee Co Kansas
Alma Enterprise, March 15, 1929:

Little did we think when Mr. and Mrs. F. McPherson left here on February 6 to spend the rest of the winter with her children at Kinsley that we should never see her alive again. Although she was nearly 87 years old and was not well when she went away, we never thought of it being her last trip. For over 60 years, Mrs. McPherson had been part of Alma and it never occurred to us that she would leave us. Only a few are left who are as old as she or who have been here so long.

The following 5 paragraphs contained the same information as the obituary in the Alma Signal

Mr. and Mrs. Joe Watson and Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Aderhold of Kinsley & W.T. Watson of Greeley, Colorado were here for the funeral. Mrs. Bidwell could not come as she had a son very sick in the hospital.

Others here were: Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Betts & Mr. and Mrs. Will Boatright of Harveyville and W. A. Speer and family of Emporia.

Two sons were born to them:

Charles W. Barlow    Ennis N. Barlow

A photograph of J. N. Barlow's home can be found in that book, page 307

Andreas History of Kansas:

Contributed by Leona Muckelroy April 2000
Eskridge Star, July 23, 1885:

Mrs. Ann Barlow, of Port William, Ohio, who has been visiting her son, John Barlow, at Harveyville, for over a year, will return to her home next Monday.
Eskridge Star, May 15, 1887:

J.N. Barlow was seen going down the street. On running against one of our merchants, J.N. cried, get out of the way of grandpa. On inquiring what he meant, he said, it's a girl and it weighs eight pounds.
Harveyville Monitor, November 16, 1905:

Messrs. Geo. and Alph Murrell of Nebraska were the guests of J.N. Barlow and wife. They are cousins of Mrs. Barlow and were on their way to Texas, one is a real estate man and the other a merchant. While here, Ferdinand McPherson came down from Alma. He and George Murrell used to chum together when they were boys. They had a delightful visit together.
Harveyville Monitor, August 20, 1908, page 1:

EMILINE MURRELL BARLOW

Born in Clinton County, Ohio, March 31, 1840, died August 14, 1908, after an illness of over two years with a complication of diseases. Funeral services were held at the Methodist church on Saturday morning at 10 o'clock and were conducted by Rev. Cook assisted by the Rebecca lodge of which Mrs. Barlow was a member.

Miss Emiline Murrell was married to J.N. Barlow in Ohio on Christmas night 1862, and moved to Kansas on February 13, 1869. To this union was born two children, C.W. and E.N. Barlow. Mrs. Barlow also leaves two brothers and two sisters living, with a devoted husband and two sons to mourn her loss. They are Mon(?) Skinner, Morrowstown, Ohio, Will Murrell, Julia Murrell, Clerksville, Ohio, Julia Humphrey, Olford, Ohio, also Ennis and Willis Barlow and Mr. J.N. Barlow. She has two sisters dead, Mrs. Nancy Ann Cox and Sarah Ann Bermon.

In the almost forty years of residenceship at this place on the same farm, no more loved person ever lived than Mrs. Barlow. She was kind, devoted and possessed of a disposition that made everyone who knew her love her.

It is indeed sad that such a character should be taken away from this community as as she was of the helpers of the community for good or for joy and comfort to all. (copied exactly) Her charity and help in health and in sickness was felt by all, and while in a measure a homebody devoted to her family, she always had time to do good to others.

No person in the county was held in higher esteem than Mrs. Barlow. She came amoung the first settlers and by industry and economy proved a great help and comfort to her husband who had provided a fine home for her and showed his devotion to her especially in her last and painful illness.

Even in all her severe suffering Mrs. Barlow ore up well and tried to make the task of those that surrounded her as light as possible.

Her demise removes one of the sweetest flowers from the pioneer citizenship of this county and leaves vacant a chair that never can be filled at this sorrowful home. It leaves an achy void in the hearts of the loved ones that on left behind that time itself cannot heal nor words of comfort to move, all that can be offered is tenderest sympathy by the true friends in this, their hour of affliction.
Harveyville Monitor, April 15, 1909:

J.N. Barlow came back from Beaver City, Nebraska, last Thursday, where he had been called on account of the sickness of his niece, who he reports is improving.
Harveyville Monitor, October 21, 1909:

Quite an Accident

Last Thursday afternoon about 4 o'clock John Barlow and Grandson John had a runaway which might have proven fatal. They had driven up to the post office, received their mail and had just started on when one of the horses got its foot caught on a wire and it started to run but when the wire went around with the wheel and hit the horse a second time, he began to kick and both took down the street turning quick at the corners, which upset the buggy with the top up. When the buggy turned over, it tore the tongue loose from the buggy and this prevented anything serious, both were taken out from under the buggy, but were not hurt outside a few bruises.
Harveyville Monitor, February 16, 1911:

Mr. John Barlow, who is boarding at the H. McPherson home, has been quite poorly the last week.
Harveyville Monitor, November 16, 1911:

J.N. Barlow sold his farm last week to the Lee brothers, who will add it to their stock farm. The Barlow place is one of the best farms in this vicinity, and lies between the Lee farm and town, thus giving the boys practically a half section in one piece adjoining town.
Harveyville Monitor, May 16, 1912:

J.N. Barlow went to Topeka Monday evening. He was joined by G.L. Horton Wednesday and both left for Ohio, the former to Port William and the latter to Wilmington, both to be gone until the latter part of the summer.

After wandering several months in eastern states, John Barlow returned to Harveyville Monday noon. During his absence, he visited in Illinois, Indiana, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Maryland, spending most of his time in the last two states named. When in Maryland he visited Baltimore during the Democratic Convention, and arrived in Topeka in time for the big Roosevelt meeting Saturday night. He insists the election will prove a landslide for Roosevelt, and John is getting to be quite a politician.
Harveyville Monitor, November 14, 1912:

A GOOD CITIZEN GONE

Although hourly expected, death never comes without a shock to a community. After making a heroic fight for life in his weakened condition, due to a recent operation, a complication of ailments and age, John Newton Barlow died at Stormont Hospital at Topeka, Kansas, Sunday Nov.10, 1912 at 12:45 p.m. It was felt from the time he went to the hospital to be operated on for strangulated hernia , there was little hope for his recovery & the only chance was in an operation. For several years he has been troubled by a rupture and other complications, little known to the public, incapacitating him for an active life, and had been gradually failing for years. During the past summer he visited his old home in Ohio to regain his strength but returned only a short time ago in a declining state of health. All that skilled service, the attention of kind friends and relatives could do to prolong life and make his last hours peaceful were done.

John Newton Barlow was born January 10, 1840 near Port William, Clinton County, Ohio, making his age 72 years and 10 months. He was married to Emmeline Murrell, December 25, 1862, near Clarksville, Ohio.

To this union were born two sons, Charles Willis, of Los Angeles, California, and Ennis N. of Twin Falls, Idaho, both of whom were with him administering to his wants in his final hours. Besides his two sons, the only immediate relative who survives him is an older brother of Port William, Ohio.

His wife, Emmeline Barlow, died August 14, 1908. They came to Kansas and settled on a farm near Harveyville, Kansas, February 13, 1869, which was owned as a home by the deceased until a few months ago.

He was one of five who petitioned fir the charter and established Wilmington Lodge #57 I.O.O.F. June 18, 1870, in which he was a loyal active member. The Lodge took charge of the funeral services which were held at the M.E. church Tuesday at 2 o'clock. Rev. J.H. Zabriski, a member of the Lodge and a close friend of the deceased, preached a very fitting sermon. The floral tributes were beautiful and betokened the langusge of the flowers.

Mr. Barlow was one of the hardy pioneers who "helped to make the West as they the East the homestead of the free." To them the present generation owes an everlasting debt of gratitude. They toiled on through adversity and prosperity carving out their own fortune and making the country that all enjoy today. Mr. Barlow did his share in this upbuilding process. Rigid honesty and fraternal relations with his fellow men, the characteristics of pioneers, were salient features of his life and religion. He always took an active part in politics and things of a public nature. He was a good neighbor and a steadfast friend.

The large number of homes represented at the funeral services are evident expressions of sympathy for those who mourn and of the esteem in which the departed was held by the many who knew him.

Those from a distance who attended the funeral of Mr. Barlow were: Mesdames, McCommis, Dunn, and Fox, the latter a cousin of Mr. Barlow's and John Cox, a nephew, of Topeka, DeLoss Lynn and Mesdames Holmes and Savage of Burlingame. Mr. Steel, a funeral director, of Topeka, accompanied the remains here and assisted in the last sad rites.
Eskridge, Kansas, Tribune-Star, November 21, 1912, pg 1:

John Newton Barlow died at Stormont hospital at Topeka, Kansas, November 10, 1912. He had been operated on at the hospital for strangulated hernia and gradually grew weaker until his death. Mr. Barlow was 72 years and 10 months of age. Mr. Barlow was one of the pioneers of Kansas and had been a resident of Harveyville for forty-five years. He was honest and upright, a good neighbor and a faithful friend and will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.

It seems that "getting married" is becoming quite a rage among our young people of late, and we don't know as much blame is attached to the fact either, for the weather of the last few days has been terribly cold, and a scheme of that kind is well planned. The last ones that have been reported to us as "skipping the golden gutter" were Willis Barlow and Miss May Henderson of Harveyville, which even took place one evening last week. We wish the happy couple all the good luck in the world, and hope the many little joys of life will brighten their matrimonial pathway.
