Additional information about Oswald Barlow provided by Susan Horne:

Oswald Barlow was born to Ann Crompton before she was married to James Barlow. She listed his father as having the surname of Fogg. She was not married at the time of his birth. All of Ann's subsequent children were after her marriage to James Barlow who adopted Oswald.   Oswald's daughter Lunes, married her father's half brother, John.   Note from Susan BARLOW Holmes:  This would mean, that any of Oswald's ancestors and descendants are not true Barlow's as far as DNA testing is concerned. However, in that his daughter, Lunes Barlow married to John Barlow, half-brother to Oswald, they would once again be true Barlow's.  Thus parts of this family will test as Barlow's, other would not.

Not the least among the musical aggregations of that early day was the martial band. Its first leader was Captain Oswald Barlow. He had for drummers: Wilford and William A. Terryl, Joseph S. Worthen, Erastus and Joseph McIntire and Joseph O. Earl.   As fifers: E. T. Riding, Elishe Cragun, George F. Jarvis, Alex Fullerton, Thomas Bleak and Horatio Pickett. 
On all holiday occasions this band serenaded the town and aroused the patriotic sentiments of the populace. The band still survives and still plays the airs made famous by Captain Barlow. —Ella J. Seegmiller.
