Note from Susan:  There may be people on the Barlow mailing list that have this family already traced, but I have very little on the site, other than the direct lineage of Vicki Roach, so I am using the resources available online to put together some kind of lineage for this family.  If this is a part of your family, I would appreciate your input and comments on the work done here.

The Little River Presbyterian Church was organized in 1761. It's first pastor was Henry Patillo who served from 1761 to 1774. Charter members were: James William Murdock, John Hall, Joseph Allison, William Deal.  [VR]

March 1, 1823.

Thomas Barlow brought a charge against James Mordock a member of this session that on the second day of January he, the said Murdoch, was intoxicated. He denied the charge and wished for time to procure evidence to prove his innocence. It was put off until 29th of March at which time the session met and constituted with prayer. Mr. Barlow informed the session that it was not in the power of his principal witness to attend on that day and requested another day appointed. It was agreed that we should meet on the second Saturday in April and written citation were sent to all the witnesses that were not present. Saml Paisley, clerk   [VR]

April 12th, 1823

The session met according to appointment. Members present S. Paisley, Wm. Woods, Joseph Woods, James Allison, David Alison and James Murdock. Opened with prayer. Mr. Barlow informed the session that John Wiley by whom he expected to support the charge he had brought against James Murdock refused to come before the session as a witness in this case, and he not being a member of the church we could take no measure to compel him. The charge against Mr. Murdock therefore was not supported. After some consultation it was on motion resolved that Mr. Barlow and Mr. Murdock both be admonished from the chair which was accordingly done and concluded with prayer. S. Paisley, clerk   [VR]

April 1, 1826

The session met members present Sam'l Paisley, William Woods, David Allison, James Allison, Joseph Woods and Sam'l Turrentine. Thomas Barlow came before them and informed them that he some time before had been provoked to strike a man with the butt end of his whip, for which he had suffered much distress of mind. The session being informed that the person for whom Mr. Barlow had struck had frequently taken occation to insult him merely because he was a professor of religion concluded to pass no other sensure on Mr. Barlow but to caution him against suffering his passion to arise for the future. S. Paisley, clerk.   [VR]

February 18th session 1832

Session met and was opened with prayer. The following persons were introduced and examined upon their knowledge of experimental religion, viz: James Ray, Nancy Ray, Ruth Barlow, Patience Barlow, Asenath Woods, Robert Anderson, Daniel and William the slaves of Mrs. Nelley Woods and Vincent Tapp. Their examinations were all approved and they were all received into full communion on Sunday the 19th by a public profession of their faith and covenanting to walk as becometh the gospel of Christ. When James Ray, Robert Anderson and Daviel and William were baptised.   [VR]

1 male under 10, 1 male 16-26 - 1 female under 10, 1 female 16-26
If Thomas was 18-20 at the time of their marriage, he would be 22-24 in 1800.

1810 Orange Co North Carolina    pg 216:  Tho. Barlow 
Thomas would be between 32-34 in 1810
2 males under 10, 1 male 26-45 - 2 females 10-16, 1 female 16-26, and 1 female 26-45

1820 Orange Co North Carolina   Thos. Barlow, Jr.
Thomas would be 42-44 in this census, perhaps even 45.
2 males under 10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 45-up  - 1 female 26-45  
This may be Thomas and Lucy, but I would consider the possiblity that perhaps Thos Jr. might be a son of Thomas and Lucy.  Perhaps the parents are living in the home.

1820 Orange Co North Carolina   John Barlow
2 males 16-26, 1 male 45 and up  - 1 female 10-16, 1 female 16-26, 1 female 26-45, 1 female 45 and up
lives within a few doors of the Jos. Allison and John Ray families, and not far from 2 Boling (Bowling) families
There must be some kind of relationship between John and Thomas, perhaps they are brothers. I think he is probably the same John that married Betsey Nichols in Orange Co North Carolina on 07 June 1792

1830 Orange Co North Carolina        Joseph Barlow
Thomas is not yet deceased, but is not in this household, where might he be? Joseph is shown as head of household   
1 m 10-15 (John H. or William)    1 m 20-30 (Joseph) - 1 female 30-40 (Lucy)
But where are the unmarried girls in this census, and John H. or William   Only Nancy and Polly are married in 1830. 

1840 N. Div. Orange Co North Carolina, pg 166     Lucretia Barlow
1 male under 15-20, John H., and 1 female 50-60, herself, and 1 female 60-70?.
She also has 3 slaves, 2 male age 10-24, and 1 female, age 10-24.

1850 McNairy Co Tennessee    James and Nancy Ray + Lucy Barlow
See census transcription with 3. Nancy Barlow and James Ray  In this census, she was 68, making her born c1782. 

6th Dist McNairy Co Tennessee    31 July 1860     pg 422   #966 / 973-74
See census transcription with:  Susan Rebecca Ray Richards

In this census, her year of birth would have been c1780.  Thus, Lucy was born between 1780 and 1782, making her age at marriage between 14 and 16.

She is also listed in the 1860 slave schedule of McNairy Co Tennessee 
Notes and queries that have arisen during this research: 

Two other very early marriages in Orange Co North Carolina include:  John Burke and Catey Barlow, married 01 December 1802, witnessed by Thomas Barlow, and David Ragins to Susannah Hargiss, witnessed by Thomas Barlow.  Susannah is likely a sister to Lucy.  I do not have the source of these marriage records, but if they are correct, questions arise  ....

Thomas Barlow and Elizabeth Nichols daughter, Catherine Barlow married James Burke in Tennessee, according to Reba Mathis and Edson Barlow.  If the marriage record in Orange Co is the same Catherine/Catey, then their may also be a relationship between these two Thomas'.   Thomas and Elizabeth Nicholas Barlow lived in Shelby Co Tennessee, and moved to Montgomery Co Illinois.   One other note of interest is that, according to Reba Mathis, this Thomas is from Scotland.   However, DNA shows that family to have a relationship to John Barlow of Fairfield Connecticut, which in turn hail from Lancashire England.


Children of Thomas Barlow and Lucy Hargis [RWCP] [NCMR]   Their order may not be correct, birthdates are approximate from the 1850 census.

i.
Mary 'Polly' Barlow [RWCP]
She married Joseph Allison on 15 October 1817 in Orange Co North Carolina  [NCMR]

I found Joseph Allison in 1830 and 1840 census' of Orange Co North Carolina, but after more digging, I find at RWCP the family moved to Roane, Putnam, and Smith Co Tennessee soon after their marriage.   Several people have mostly matching gedcoms, so I will not copy them here.  According to all, Polly was born c1793 in Virginia, and died August 1850, in Roane Co Tennessee of 'fever', at which time Joseph married second to Elizabeth Steward. The 1793 date of birth would conflict with Thomas and Lucy's marriage date.  Various people show Mary to be the daughter of John Barlow and Betsy Nichols who were married in 1792.   I believe more will need to be researched to prove who are the parents of this particular Mary.

Note from Susan ... the following is not verified to be this Thomas, but it does appear to be.  The dates are correct, but the writer states he was from Kentucky.  She may have been mistaken about that.
Uncle Tommy
 
'Uncle Tommy'

Once upon a time there lived on the banks of the Brazos River a man named Thomas Barlow (called "Uncle Tommy"). He lived in a little dugout that he made all by himself. It was neat and clean with newspapers and magazines all stacked in neat piles.

Uncle Tommy was an educated man and, as the story has been told, he grew up in Kentucky - a beautiful place. He and a young girl fell in love and were planning to marry on a certain Sunday. On Wednesday, just before that Sunday the girl suddenly took sick and died. That put an end to Uncle Tommy's dreams. Determined to put it all behind him, he left Kentucky and came to Texas. I do not know what mode of travel he used; I only know that he was in Mitchell Bend, Hood County, about 1870. It could have been earlier but he taught school there at that time. That school was one of the first in Hood County. The benches were made of logs and had no backs. I don't know about the floor, probably dirt.

Mama told us about going to school there when Uncle Tommy taught. She said that every day at noon Uncle Tommy would disappear off into the brush somewhere. Of course in Mitchell Bend at that time there were plenty of hiding places. The big boys all got curious about where their teacher was going and what he was doing. One day curiosity got the best of them and they followed him - at a distance, of course, and they were astonished to see what he was doing. He had cleared off a big space of ground real clean, surrounded by trees so that no one could see him (he thought). There was Uncle Tommy dancing! He who was so strict, so staid, and never smiling! dancing around and around! Was he capturing the dreams he had as a young man back in Kentucky? What else? But the boys never told him; they had too much respect.

And so - Uncle Tommy lived in his dugout on the banks of the Brazos River. Everyone thought of him as a hermit, but he visited people, and if anyone went fishing near where he lived he always enjoyed their company. Also, he told Uncle Will Poe he always went to the river to watch the boys swim and cavort in the water. Some of them were so daring, he said, that he feared for their lives. The old Brazos had "eddy-holes" where the water swirled around and around; every one knew they were dangerous.

Uncle Tommy was a tall man, stood erect (never stooped), always dressed in a black suit: black pants, black coat, black hat, white shirt, and shoulder length white hair.

As children going to school at Mambrino we very often saw Uncle Tommy going home with a 50 lb. sack of flour on his shoulder. He walked wherever he went. He visited the Crites, Hayworths, Snelsons, Uncle Will Poe, and others. Often we have seen him pass our house at 'Brino on a hot summer day dressed in a black suit: black pants, black coat, black hat, white shirt, and his shoulder length white hair.

It was on one of those summer days that he stopped by our house, unannounced. Mama greeted him at the door and asked him to sit near the south as that was the coolest place in the room. I am sure it was on a Monday as Mama was washing and Monday was always her wash day, rain or shine, come what may. She seemed a little flustered with her old school teacher coming in like this. She went all out to please him. After she had settled him and given him a book to read , she told me to "go to the well and bring Uncle Tommy a cool drink of water". So, I went to get the "cool drink of water."

I came back and stood near Uncle Tommy who was deeply interested in his book. As I stood there, barefooted and in an old everyday dress, I thought I was standing before a great man. Holding the big zinc bucketful of water with the dipper inside I said, "Uncle Tommy, do you want a cool drink?" Without a word he took the dipper and dipped deep into the bucket to get a big dipperful of water. He then put the dipper back and said very politely, "Thank you." I hurried to tell Mama about him being so polite. "Mama, he said 'Thank you"'. "Of course he did," she said, as she knew he was a very nice man.

Uncle Tommy had bee hives all around his little place and often brought a jar of honey to Uncle Will and Aunt Al Poe. He visited with them a great deal. One hot summer day he went to visit them, got sick, and died a few days later.

My brother, Van P. Morrison, held Uncle Tommy's funeral. If I remember right Van told the story of Uncle Tommy's early life in Kentucky and why he had left there. He was laid to rest in the Nubbin Ridge Cemetery in 1918. His epitaph is "Faithful unto death."

Uncle Tommy was a Great Man!

Indeed he was! Troy Purselley recalls that Uncle Tommy was an inventor. One invention was a gadget that would tie the twine on bundles of feed as they were 'kicked out' by the harvester. Farmers were having to tie them by hand. Uncle Tommy asked Mr. Poe if he could put the gadget on his harvester to test it. They did use it and it worked! Mr. Poe thought that was great and his field was the first where the bundles were tied automatically. It was a wonderful time-saver!

I could not locate Thomas in any census record, perhaps if he did live in a dug-out, the census taker did not enumerate him.

Note from Susan:  I had done only a small amount of research on this family, when I found the Ray Genealogy website of Barbara Breedlove Rollins.  She has documented this family well, and graciously allowed me to use her information here.  Parts of it are shown here, but a continuation of these families can also be found at her site, along with other surnames allied to the families.  While I give Ray Genealogy as the source of documentation, Barbara has her original sources cited on her site.  For your personal family documentation, those sources should be cited.

In 1850 the Cumberland Presbyterians erected a house of worship of brick in the center part of the town of Purdy, McNairy Co, Tennessee. [Reminicences of the Early Settlement and Early Settlers of McNairy Co Tennessee by Gen. Marcus J. Wright, Washington, D.C., Commercial Pub. Co., 1882, Mormon library microfilm.]  Another source indicates that the Purdy Cumberland Presbyterian Church was organized by the Rev. Wm. M. Dunaway August 19, 1851, with 69 members. Many of these members transferred from Mt. Zion and Mt. Vernon Presbyterian congregations in the county. Another congregation in the county was Pleasant Ridge, which at one point had 51 members, and it is known that the James Ray family were members of this congregation. The James RAY family moved to McNairy County about February, 1848. This is a church where the RAY family were active members. Church minutes for that congregation on March 21, 1869, mentions the following persons as being present: R. YOUNG, Moderator; Elders L. A. RICHARDS, C. A. RICHARDS, J. J. ROY (sic); and H. S. HUDSPETH. Elder T. A. RICHARDS adjourned the session. I don't know who L. A. RICHARDS is since I doubt it's Lucy Ann RAY RICHARDS. C. A. would be Chesley Allen RICHARDS, and I believe J. J. ROY is John J. RAY. Elder T. A. RICHARDS would be the Rev. Thomas Allen RICHARDS.  Minutes of September 21, 1869, reflect the presence of the RICHARDS and RAY families just as heavily, while they are absent in September, 1870, consistent with the report that the family moved on January 1, 1870.  [RG]

After the death of her husband, on 01 January 1870, Nancy Ray, son John and daughter, Polly, left Tennessee, taking the train at Corinth, Mississippi, to Memphis, Tennessee. Then the family went by boat down the Mississippi River to the mouth of the White River and up the White River to Des Arc, Arkansas, to visit her son Tom who lived on a farm in the Walter's Chapel Community near Carlisle, Arkansas.  [RG]

Lucy Ann Ray3, born 27 May 1829 in North Carolina, and died 18 October 1893 in Hillsboro Texas, burial in Cottonwood Cemetery, near Dublin, Erath Co Texas.  [RG]
She married Reverend Thomas Allen Richards on 20 March 1852, McNairy Co Tennessee. [RG]  He was born 27 May 1829 probably in Orange Co North Carolina, and died 30 March 1871, burial at Walter's Chapel Cemetery, Lonoke Co Arkansas, just across the county line from Prairie Co Arkansas. [RG]

Thomas Allen Richards was a Presbyterian preacher. "My Grandmother and Grandfather Richards (Lucy Ann and Thomas Allen) moved from Tennessee to Collin Co Texas near McKinney and lived there one year and moved near Carlisle, Arkansas. On the way, Grandfather held a wagon wheel to stop the wagon to keep it from running over Uncle Bob, and he pulled something loose inside him which caused his death. Walters Chapel Ark. is the burial place of Grand-father and Daddy's brother Bee--a horse threw him and hurt his head and he died. They lived in Arkansas about 6 or 7 years and returned to Texas and settled in Erath Co., Cottonwood Community, near Dublin."  [RG]   

After the death of her husband, Lucy Ann Ray Richards moved to Erath Co Texas. Three sisters and one brother settled in the Cottonwood Community near Dublin around 1876; John J. and Alice Ray, Susan Rebecca and Chesley Richards, Mary and Jim Richards, and Lucy Ann Richards.  [RG]   

They were Presbyterians, and the first church at Cottonwood was a Presbyterian church.   [RG]   

After the family was already situated in Erath Co, they joined with others of the family in Mississippi and other places to dispose of the property inherited through their mother, Nancy Barlow Ray: "Mrs. L. A. RICHARDS, C. A. RICHARDS and S. R. (his wife), W. C. RAY, J. T. RICHARDS, and M. D. (his wife) and John J. RAY - all of Erath Co Texas, 28th of February, 1887, appoint C.E. PARISH of Orange Co North Carolina, Attorney, to receive the amount due the heirs of Nancy RAY, deceased."  [RG]   

Obituary of Lucy Ray Richards from the Hillsboro and Dublin newspapers:   [RG]   

Death of Mrs. RICHARDS.

The west bound Texas Central passenger train Thursday was the bearer of a casket that contained all that was mortal of Mrs. Lucy Ann RICHARDS, who had left Dublin just three weeks prior to that day in apparently good health for the purpose of paying a visit to her sons at and near Hillsboro, Texas. She was sick about ten days and died Wednesday morning at the home of her son, Rev. J. J. RICHARDS, near Hillsboro. Her remains were brought up Thursday and interred at Cottonwood cemetery.

Mrs. RICHARDS was a sister of Mr. Jno. J. RAY and of Mrs. J. T. RICHARDS, and leaves six sons and one daughter, all grown. She was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, and had been for many years.

The corpse was accompanied to Dublin by Mr. J. J. RICHARDS and wife, and Messrs. J. S. and L. B. RICHARDS, the gentlemen all being sons of the deceased lady.

The funeral ceremony, which occurred at Cottonwood at 4 o'clock Thursday evening, was conducted by Rev. J. H. CHAMBLISS, of Dublin, and was very largely attended. Mr. CHAMBLISS says the large attendance and apparent grief and respect for the dead were a most fitting and unquestionable testimonial of the very high esteem in which she was held by all who knew her.

The Telephone tenders its heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved relatives.

RICHARDS -

Mrs. L. A. RICHARDS, nee RAY, was born in North Carolina May 27, 1829. She professed faith in Christ at an early age, and joined the church soon after. Ever since she has lived a consistent Christian life. She was married to Mr. T. A. RICHARDS March 20, 1852, in McNairy county, Tenn. She was the mother of nine children, eight boys and one girl. Her husband and one son preceded her in death. Her father and family moved from North Carolina in 1846 to near Purdy, McNairy County, Tenn.; from there to Collin county, Texas, in 1870; and from there to Arkansas the same year; from there they came back to Texas, locating near Dublin in 1876. Here was her home until death. Thirteen days before her death in company with Dr. W. C. RAY and wife, her brother and sister-in-law, of Carlisle, Ark. she came to Hillsboro, Tex., to see her son Rev.

Samuel Paisley Ray, born c1839 in Orange Co North Carolina, and was killed in the Battle of Shiloh on 06 April 1862 [RG]

Sam Paisley Ray was named for an Orange Co North Carolina Presbyterian minister. I assume the family were members at the Little River church. "After Cross Roads was united with Hawfields in the service of a pastor, Eno, which had at first been its partner, was united with Little River, which became a distinct congregation about this time, under the charge of Rev. James H. Bowman, in the year 1794. In the great revival of 1802, and onwards, he gathered a goodly number into his two churches. His ministry closed in 1815. His successor was Samuel Paisley, half-brother of William Paisley and son of an Indian captive, who commenced his labors here in 1816. In 1821 the congregations were blessed with a revival of religion that brought numbers into the church. After some years of service, Mr. Paisley left them, and is now ministering in Moore County, a member of the Fayetteville Presbytery."  [Sketches of North Carolina, Historical and Biographical, Illustrative of the principles of a portion of her early settlers, by Rev. William Henry FOOTE, Robert Carter Publishers, New York, 1846, pp 228-229] [RG]

Sam Paisley Ray described the Civil War from a soldier's point of view in the following letter, transcribed as written:

Fort Wright   Randolph Tenn   July 25th 1861

Sam Paisley Ray was killed in the Battle of Shiloh on 06 April 1862, a battle fought within the hearing of his family at home. His sister, Lucy Ann Ray Richards named her child born April 09, 1862, in McNairy County, Samuel Paisley Richards. [RG]
vii.
John Jasper Ray, born 02 September 1846 in Orange Co North Carolina, lived to be 105 years old, dying 07 May 1952 in Fort Worth, Tarrant Co Texas.   [RG]   
He married Alice Lefton on 09 January 1872 in Des Arc, Prairie Co Arkansas. [RG]   

This family lived in Prairie Co Arkansas, Erath and Tarrant Co Texas. He was post master at Dublin for about five years, holding that job until "The Republicans stopped my pay." [RG]   Their children were: Sam, Walt, John Jr., Ella, and Alma [RG]

An article about John J. Ray, the youngest brother, was written for his 101st birthday:

"Ray was born in Orange Co North Carolina., but lived the early part of his life in Tennessee. He still recalls the roll of the cannon in the battle of Shiloh, 15 miles from his home. And he recalls that the Union army took all his family's horses. The family moved to Arkansas after the War Between the States, and in 1876 RAY came to Texas, settling near Dublin."  [RG]

A letter from John J. Ray, Jr., dated October 23, 1971, describes the early life of his father:

When John was 13 months old, the family moved to McNairy County, Tenn. Their farm was on Oxford Creek, about 7 miles south of Purdy, then the county seat. The county seat was later moved to Selma, about 3 miles from the farm. They lived there until December 31, 1869. James Ray had died on April 27, 1867. Tom had married Molly J. Robinson on February 6, 1861 and moved to Arkansas. Dr. Will Ray had also moved to Arkansas. Tom returned home from the Southern Army, wounded, and died in a year or so.   [RG]   

Another paragraph of this letter:  "Mrs. [Nancy Barlow] Ray, John and Polly had dinner the first day in Des Arc at Mrs. Bull's home. Mrs. Bull was a cousin of Mrs. Tom Ray [Molly J. Robinson Ray]. it was here that John met Alice Lefton, on January 4, 1870. He married her in the same home January 9, 1872."  [RG]

From the book "From These Hills"  page 99  [JA]

"In the fall of 1850 the Pontotoc Male Academy was organized by.......A large two-story building was constructed on the present school grounds where the Main Street Elementary School stands today and was operated by John F. Barlow and Philip Roots. Mr. Barlow was a rigid disciplinarian who believe that "to spare the rod was to spoil a child."    (note from Susan:  Should this be John H., or is there yet another Barlow?)

page 100

Schools began to spring up in many communities, and by 1860 there were more than 90 schools in Pontotoc Co. Wince at the time all Pontotoc, Lee, Union and part of Chickasaw counties, it is very difficult to gleam from the long list available the names of schools and instructors who were at the time in the present county. Since many of the names are unfamiliar we are giving the full list of schools and the teacher shown on the Chancery Clerk's Record Books for the year 1860.

This lists one school as Woodville Academy.
The instructor was John H. Barlow

Matthew chartered a freight car and took his family, possessions, furniture, teams, farming implements and settled in Warrens Bend, Texas. He had bought a home in Gainesville and planned on putting the children in school there at the time of his death.  [VR]
A little history of Warrens Bend

My great grandfather Matthew Henry Barlow came to Gainesville Texas sometime after the Civil War looking for a place to start a farm and a cotton gin. When he stood on the hill overlooking the Red River, he thought the area reminded him of his home in Shiloh, Tennessee, so he bought 500 acres of the land that included the site of the Barlow Cemetery.

My grandfather, J.L. Barlow, at one point owned the land and when he sold it, donated the Barlow Cemetery land to Cooke Co who maintains the cemetery today.

Hardin County - History of Tennessee   The Goodspeed Publishing Co - 1887

"Samuel P. Barlow, a well known farmer and resident of the 11th District, was born in Orange County North Carolina, April 25, 1847. His father, Joseph Barlow, was also a native of the same state, and came to Hardin County in 1859, settling in the 15th District.

He was married to Miss Lucinda Crossett, of Caswell County North Carolina.

To them were born 10 children, of whom the subject of our sketch was the fifth.

He received such education as the common schools of Hardin Co afforded in its primitive days. Soon after leaving school he began farming with his father, and so continued until the age of 23.

He was married to Miss Sarah J. Churchwell, of Hardin County October 25, 1869.

Six children have been born to them; those living are:
Cally J., George J., Osborne L., Alice I., and E. and Luke E. (deceased)

In 1872 Mr. Barlow purchased the farm upon which he now lives, consisting of between 250 and 300 acres, which is valuable and productive. He is a staunch Democrat, was elected magistrate of the 11th District in 1882 and served for 4 years.

He is a good neighbor, a worthy citizen and an esteemed man.."

Letter from Elizabeth Barlow Mills of Memphis, Tennessee in 1997: [VR]

"We have no Barlow pictures except the generation of Samuel Paisley and Sara Jane Churchwell Barlow and only a few of them. Grandpa Barlow's house burned in 1921 just after the death of his second wife. They were cleaning house and burning unwanted items in a fireplace, as was the custom when a death occurred and the sparks ignited the wood roof and the house was completely consumed. Only a small part of the furnishings were saved and I suspect any pictures he might have had were lost. By the way, we have no pictures of the house but from all accounts I've heard it was quite a show place for the time and locality. It was two story with a "widow's watch" on it. The house that he replaced it with-or the remains-still stands but wasn't anything as nice as the one that burned. His place was sold at auction back in the spring. He willed it to Aunt Icie Good's family and they sold it soon after and was rented out and badly abused. It is now just a beat up old house not habitable and will be torn down I'm sure. Property was divided into lots and sold."

John Barlow was my uncle, he was half brother to Sammi Rogers Johnson my MATERNAL grandmother.  His mother and my grandmother Belle Tate Rodgers/Rogers (found it spelled both ways in Pontotoc documents) had two daughters Euna Rodgers and Sammi Rodgers prior to her marriage to Papa Barlow she was a widow.  Papa Barlow married her for her house, land and other property as the brothers of Papa Rogers after his death tried to take it.  There was no son named Sammie per the information given on the website and neither one of the Rogers girls ever took the Barlow name.  Uncle John married Georgie Walker, she was one of the younger sisters to my PATERNAL grandmother Mattie Walker Wages.  When great grandmother Barlow died the homeplace (originally owned by Rodgers) went to John as Uncle Clyde was in Texas. Uncle Chester had the section of land next to the old homeplace, you could see his house from the front porch.  Aunt Willie Belle was living a few miles away and was married.  I have a photo from the 1890's showing Euna and Sammi, it is on the Algoma/Pontotoc website under Algoma School Photos.  Hopefully these bits of information can help clear up possible dead ends.  I spent every summer with Uncle John and Aunt Georgia and knew their house as well as I know my own, it was destroyed in 2001. (On Saturday night, February 24, 2001, at approximately 10:00 p.m., an F4 tornado did major damage over a path twenty-three miles long in Pontotoc County.)  My aunt had spent years after Mama Barlow died restoring the 100 year old home, she kept it in beautiful condition as well as the flower garden.  Uncle John was a barber in Pontotoc and was well known.  He raised registered white face Hereford cattle and we would spend hours going over their papers.  Next to the dresser in the bedroom was a photo of Papa Barlow with a long full beard and a very stern look!  There were lots of old black oak trees fronting the property which were snapped off 2 to 3 foot off the ground which attests to the fury of the tornado.  After Aunt Georgia died some years later he married again.    My father was named after Uncle Clyde Barlow, his name was Lacey Clyde Wages born August 11, 1919 Blue Mountain, Mississippi.  My mother's maiden name was Frances Dora Johnson born January 14, 1924 Pontotoc, Mississippi.  Both parents deceased.  Sincerely, Pamela Wages Anderson  [PWA]

He was adopted by his paternal uncle, Hugh Samuel Paisley, and they lived in Alabama.  Hugh had been a pioneer dentist in Mississippi prior to removing to Alabama. [JA]    John also took the Paisley name, and was known as John Barlow Paisley. [JA

I could not locate John in 1910.

This sure raises some questions; found in Edson's military records:

Samuel P. Barlow, alias Hugh S. Paisley, Private
Martin's 1st Alabama Volunteers  --Mexican War--
Served 6 months in 1846
Pension application 18964 filed March 30, 1888, resident Florida

Does anyone have a clue who this might be?  Surely he too, has a relationship to this family. Was the Hugh that adopted John a Barlow also?  Could this be him?

I find a record of a Hugh Samuel Paisley in an online database for the Rives family:

Hugh Samuel Paisley was born September 08, 1822 in North Carolina, and died January 22, 1895 Dallas or Lowndes Co Alabama.
He married Sarah Ann Amelia Rives. Sarah, the daughter of Green Rives and Jerush May Paisley, was born October 12, 1825 in Richland District South Carolina, and died November 1848 in Collirene, Lowndes Co Alabama. Hugh married 2nd: Mary Elizabeth Dunklin on January 06, 1856 in Dallas or Lowndes Co Alabama.  The dates would fit those of the Hugh who adopted John, and he was married to Mary D.  But was he Hugh a Barlow also?

Hugh Samuel was born a Barlow. His grandmother changed his name after the death of his parents. Carleen Gash states that this is false. She identified his parents as Thomas Barlow and Lucy Hargis. Her research leads her to believe that there was some sort of relationship between Thomas/Lucy and Rev. Samuel Paisley/Elenor Paisley, though not a blood relationship. Carleen says they were members of the same church congregation in Hillsborough, Orange Co NC and could have been good friends. She said Thomas and Lucy had several children, and Hugh Samuel is the only one to change his name. Hugh Samuel's granddaughter, Ellen Lee Paisley, said he spoke five languages.

February 07, 1849 to October 18, 1849 Hugh Samuel Paisley served as U.S. Consul to Genoa, Italy. His correspondence was directed to the Secretary of State John Middleton Clayton. Secretary Clayton was a cousin of Ann Rebecca Clayton Dunklin, Mary Elizabeth Dunklin's mother. He resigned his post due to health problems.

1856-Practicing dentistry in Houston, Mississippi.

Excerpt from a book entitled "Collirene, The Queen Hill" pages 146-7 by Rosa Lyon Taylor and June Middleton Albaugh:
Mary E. "Molly" was born January 10, 1835. On January 06, 1856 she became the second wife of Dr. Hugh Samuel Paisley. The story of Dr. Hugh Samuel Paisley and Molly's life surely fits the adage, "Truth is stranger than fiction." Hugh Samuel was a dentist and was from SC. His first wife was Sarah Ann Amelia Rives of Collirene. His mother was a Paisley of SC, so he and Sarah were probably cousins of some sort. Hugh Samuel married Sarah in 1848, and she lived only forty days after the marriage. She was referred to in records as "the forty day bride". After her death, Hugh Samuel received an appointment to be consul in Genoa, Italy. He had a beautiful marble monument sent from Italy for his wife's grave. It can be seen today in the Collirene-Rives Cemetery. The first twist to this story is that Hugh Samuel's family name was not Paisley. His mother was a Paisley and his father was a Barlow. But, because there were no more male Paisleys to carry on the line, his name had been legally changed to Paisley. On returning from Italy, he was drawn to Collirene through his earlier marriage to Sarah Ann Amelia, and there became acquainted with Mary E. Dunklin. They were married January 06, 1856, but they had no children, so again it seemed the name of Paisley was to die out. However, at the time of the Civil War, there was in Mississippi, a Mr. Barlow, a relative of Hugh Samuel's, who had a large family. Mr. Barlow, who was an itinerant teacher, was having a hard time supporting these children. He died quite suddenly when away from home. To be of help, Hugh Samuel and Molly decided to go and choose one of the boys to adopt. On arriving in Mississippi, they found that Mrs. Barlow had recently died in childbirth and left a new baby boy, John Barlow. The older Barlow children, having heard tales about marauding Yankee soldiers, were afraid their baby brother would be stolen, so the children had notched both the baby's ears so that he could be identified later if necessary! As an older sister wanted the little boy for whom Hugh Samuel and Molly had made the trip, the new baby with the notched ears was the one they took home, adopted and named John Barlow Paisley. The story continues to twist, for, in 1877, Molly's brother, Charles Polk Dunklin, was left a widower with two young children. Now, his wife had been Angeline Elizabeth Rives, a niece of Hugh Samuel's first wife, Sarah Ann Amelia Rives. Hugh Samuel and Molly took these children, Claudia Polk Dunklin and James Herbert Dunklin and reared them but did not adopt them or change their names. In 1885, John Barlow Paisley married his "sister", Claudia. They had a long and happy marriage that produced three boys and eight girls with the name of Paisley. Hugh Samuel died January 22, 1895 and Molly died February 20, 1902. Both are buried in Maplesville, Alabama.

I was unable to locate James K. in an 1860 or 70 census to find who his parents might be.  From LDS, I learned he was married first to Sarah Mariah Motley of Greene Co Tennessee, c1865.  She apparently died between 1887-1898, at which time James was married to his 2nd wife, Jennie Gaston Broyles.    James name according to information at LDS, was James Kendrick Barlow.

His daughter Stella married Wiley Mangum, and her nephew, James F. Barlow, Jr., age 7, was living in her home, in 1920

In 1910, both James K., and James Jr are on the census.

In 1920, James K., Jas F. Jr., and Jamie are on the census.
