Nathaniel Barlow and Rachel Kenyon

New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont
From the research of Kim Granholm
i. NATHANIEL1 BARLOW was born Abt. 1800.   He married RACHEL ORNETIA KENYON Abt. 1825, daughter of JAMES KENYON and RACHEL MOREY.
Edson Barlow:  Nathaniel Barlow was born about, say, 1800.   He married Rachel Stott Kinghan (or Kingam, or perhaps Kenion) around, say, 1825. They lived at Bolton, Warren Co New York, and at Ticonderoga, Essex Co New York. They apparently died before 1850. [Rachel may have married second William Banker - if so, she was recorded as born in 1817 in New York in the 1850 census, but this does not seem right]

ALLEN CLARENCE6 BARLOW, b. September 12, 1948, North Adams, Massachucettes; d. 1953, Charlemont, Massachusetts, burial in Levitt Cemetery, beside his father.
CHARLEMONT -- The body of four-year-old Allen Barlow was recovered from the Deerfield River at Hohawk Park this noon, two miles from the Florida Mountain Bridge in Zoar and 1 1/2 hours after the tot fell into the river while playing with friends.  Efforts to revive the boy were futile.
The incident occurred about 10:30 this morning when Allen and playmates were playing by the bridge. The Barlow home is less than a mile away. When the boy fell into the river the youngsters informed Conservation officer Carl D. Nichols of Williamstown who, being not far from the scene, rushed across the river to get is car and then skirted along the road near the river in search of the victim. Unable to locate young Barlow, he returned to obtain help. Mean while, the other youngsters returned home and Mrs. Van Barlow soon became curious because she did not see her son among them.
A call for help was received here, the town fire alarm blew and volunteers responded quickly to help search for the boy. Because it was not known whether he was definitely drowned or had perhaps strayed into the woods, calls were sent for more help.
About 100 persons responded to the plea.
Fire Chief Frank Wells, in bed with pneumonia, immediately went to the scene when informed of the accident. Volunteers hunted along the river-bank and surrounding areas and, about noon, the boy was found near Mohawk Park.
Pulmoters from Charlemont and Shelburne Falls were used in attempts to revive him but the child had been in the water for more than an hour. Being dashed against the rocks in the stream as he was carried down the river made survival almost impossible, it was reported.
The four-year-old boy leaves his parents; a brother, 3, and twin sisters about a year old.
*Playmates were 2 of his half brothers Larry and Wayne Barlow from Van's first marriage to Audrey Graham. the "brother, 3" was actually his sister.
CHARLEMONT -- A wave of water that swept down from Vermont when a dam control gate was opened contributed to the drowning of a local youth yesterday, it was reported today.
Allen Barlow, 4, son of Mr. and Mrs. Van Barlow of Zoar, drowned in the Deerfield when he slipped while wading and was carried downstream about a mile, according to Carl D. Nichols of Williamstown, supervising conservation officer.
Original reports of the tragedy were varied, said Nichols, because three youngsters who were playing with Allen were hysterical when he discovered them on the river bank. Piecing the story together, officials determined Allen was playing below the Florida Mountain Bridge in their bathing suits when Allen waded into the stream. About that time, 10:30 a.m., the first wave of the released water came. Allen slipped and was carried by the strong current. The advancing water runs about one to two feet above the normal river height on its way from Whitingham, more than 15 miles upstream. The water is reportedly released every day except week-ends by the New England Power Co.
According to residents, children have "standing orders" not to play in the river because of this tide-like onrush of river water.
The boy's body, battered by rocks in the stream bed, was carried about a mile to a cement bridge at Mohawk Park.
Shelburne Falls fireman and Dr. H. Eugene Oxman of that community went to the scene and worked over the body. At 12:53 p.m., Dr. Henry A. Rys of Turners Falls, accociate Eastern District medical examiner, pronounced the boy dead from accidental drowning. Asst. Chief Edward Sauter and Fireman Arthur Kirch brought the resuscitator here.
Fire Chief Frank J. Wells of this town went to the scene, although he fainted when leaving his bed, where he has been confined for treatment of pnuemonia.
Allen Clarence Barlow was born Sept. 12 1948, in North Adams, son of Van and Beverly (Cilley) Barlow. Surviving are his parents; three sisters, Laurie Jean, Nancy and Susan; his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Allen Cilley of Franklin, N.H. and Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Barlow of Fairhaven VT.
Services will be Thursday at 2 p.m. at Federated Church with Rev. Thomas E. Pardue of Trinity Fellowship, Shelburne Falls, officiating. Burial will be in Leavitte Cemetery. The Johnson Funeral Home of Shelburne Falls made arrangements.
