Generation No. 1

1. Warren1 Barlow1 was born 1788 in Connecticut (shown as Joseph Warren Barlow in Edson Barlow's genealogy chart)

Notes for Warren Barlow:  First member of the family for whom there is any record in the United States. From Connecticut, he removed to New York state and settled in Sullivan County. He had three sons and two daughters, born in Sullivan County.  The fifth child was Thomas Barlow.
Last year I received an email from a Barbara Gayler who believes that  our Warren is Joseph Warren Barlow, but I have no proof of that.  However, the names relating to Joseph Warren Barlow do appear in the  Sullivan County censuses and could likely be related to us. I just need  to find proof. We have never been able to find the name of the wife of  Thomas Barlow, the father of Solomon Q. or the name of the wife of  Warren Barlow of Connecticut to emigrated to Sullivan Co New York
Elected Apr 1826 in Constable and Collector of the town of Fallsburgh, Sullivan Co NY

HISTORY OF SONOMA COUNTY  by Tom Gregory  Historic Record Company, Los Angeles, California - 1911                                           Contributed by Phyllis Stengl
The records of the Barlow family show that it is of English origin, and the first member of whom we have any knowledge in this country is Warren Barlow, whose early years were associated with the colonial history of Connecticut.

From that state he subsequently removed to Sullivan County, NY, and there his son Thomas Barlow was born June 25, 1809, his grandson, Solomon Q. Barlow, also being a native of the same county, born May 20, 1837. The latter was given such education as the times afforded, and in addition to attending the schools in the vicinity of his home, also attended Ellenville High School, from which he graduated. Subsequently he engaged in farming and lumbering on the homestead farm, continuing this until 1862, when he removed to Pompton, NJ, where he was agent for James Horner & Co. for two years.

At the expiration of this time, in 1861 by way of the Isthmus of Panama, he came to California, locating in Two Rock Valley, Sonoma County, and on April 21, 1864, be located upon the ranch which was the home of the family for the following eight years. In 1872 he purchased a ranch of, two hundred and twenty acres in the same valley, six miles from Petaluma, and here he carried on stock-raising and horticulture until his death.

In New York state, before coming to the west, he was married to Elizabeth J. Denman, who was born in that state, in Sullivan County, March 14, 1837, the daughter of William Denman, who died December 03, 1875.

Six children comprised the family of Mr. and Mrs. Barlow, as follows: Eva R., Mrs. Thomas Mordecai, of Petaluma; William D., who died in infancy; Fannie D., Mrs. W. H. Darden, of Corning, California; Anna D., who died in Petaluma; Thomas E., of this review; and Elizabeth L., Mrs. J. W. McNeil, of Honolulu, a teacher in Oahu College.

Next to the youngest in the parental family, Thomas E. Barlow was born in Two Rock Valley, Sonoma County, February 2, 1867. He attended the public schools of this locality and graduated from Petaluma high school in 1884.

The death of the father in the meantime had left the care of the ranch to the mother and in 1885 Thomas E. assumed the responsibilities, continuing farming and horticulture there for about seven years. In 1892 he purchased the nucleus of the ranch which was his home throughout the remainder of his life, which consisted of thirty-five acres of land in Green Valley, which he set out to fruit. For a time after purchasing, this property he continued his resi- dence on the home ranch, in conjunction with its management also, dealing in farm products and fruits. Later he removed to his own ranch and thereafter gave his attention to its cultivation, adding to his original purchase as he was able, until he had one hundred and sixty-four acres of fine land, all in fruit with the exception of thirty-five acres.

He was one of the pioneer fruit raisers of this locality, and at one time produced more blackberries than any individual on the coast, having ninety acres in this fruit, which was readily disposed of in San Francisco and also in northern markets.

He was instrumental in getting boys from the Boys and Girls Aid Society in San Francisco to pick berries during vacations, which gave them a pleasant outing in the country as well as an opportunity to earn money. With the idea of making a pleasant camping place for his young helpers Mr. Barlow set out a eucalyptus grove, and the camp is now a well-established institution. The boys are still employed here each summer, being in charge of a superintendent and matron, and they and their helpers take away at the end of each season between $4,000 and $5,000. After the death of Mr. Barlow in 1904 Mrs. Barlow continued his policy in conducting the ranch and her thorough capability for discharging the duties which the death of her husband imposed upon her has been amply demon- strated. The camp has been suitably equipped with every convenience, and in 1911 a large drier, with all modern improvements, was installed upon the ranch, its capacity being seven hundred tons of green fruit annually. Commodious warehouses and packing houses as well as a fine residence have also been built on the ranch.

Besides the raising of berries a specialty is made of raising apples, Gravensteins, Baldwins and Wagners predominating. Eight hands are employed throughout the year on the ranch, but during the busy season two hundred hands are given employment. Mr. Barlow gave the right of way for the Petaluma and Santa Rosa electric road across his ranch and Barlow Station was so named in his honor.

He was active in, the organization of, the Green Valley Congregational Church, which he assisted in building, and was also a trustee of the organization.

Politically he was a Republican. In Santa Rosa, February 18, 1891, Mr. Barlow was united in marriage with Miss Laura Ellen Miller, who was born near Healdsburg, the daughter of Thomas B. Miller.

He was born in Rhea County, Tennessee, December 31, 1826, the son of James P. and Charlotte "Bell" Miller, the former born in Virginia, and the latter in Tennessee. In 1830 the family removed to Alabama and in 1835 to Arkansas, five years later locating in Newton County Missouri, and in 1842 in Benton County, Arkansas. In 1846 James P. Miller enlisted in the Twelfth Regular United States Infantry, and served as first lieutenant in the Mexican War. In 1849 he accompanied his sons, Thomas B. and Gideon T., overland to California, and at Millerstown, near Auburn, they opened a store, and subsequently were similarly engaged in Washington on the Yuba River, until 1850, when the, father returned east. After coming to California Thomas B. Miller engaged in mining in Placer County until 1850, when he went to, Nevada City, California, where he made a strike and was very successful afterwards in mining on the Yuba River. In the fall of 1851 he came to Sonoma County, farming in various localities until 1855, when he took up his residence on one hundred and sixty acres of land near Healdsburg, upon which he remained until 1874, when he sold the property and purchased three hundred and twenty acres five miles west of Santa Rosa. Here he engaged in fruit and hop raising, besides which he raised fine horses and cattle. His marriage, April 17, 1853, united him with Mary Ann King, a daughter of James and Elizabeth "Horn" King, both of whom were natives of Virginia and came to California from Missouri in 1850.

In the family of Thomas B. Miller and his wife were the following children: James P., a hop-raiser near Healdsburg; Charlotte E., Mrs. E. H. Parnell, of a Green Valley; Thomas, B., a hop-grower of Santa Rosa; Louisa H., Mrs. S. W. Purrington, of Mount Olivet; Mary Alice, Mrs. Alexander Ragle, of Eldorado County, California; Irene A., Mrs. S. E. Ballard, of San Jose; Josephine, Mrs. Spencer Grogan, of Santa Rosa; Laura Ellen, Mrs. Barlow; Henrietta, Mrs. F. B. Chenoweth, of San Francisco; and Robert L., who died in Santa Rosa.

Six children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Barlow, as follows: Mary Elizabeth, who is a graduate of Mills Seminary; Anna Maude; Warren Leland; Laura Louise; Thomas Denman; and Wilbur James, all at home.

In the passing of Thomas E. Barlow Sonoma County lost one of its most enterprising citizens, one whose enthusiasm and determined efforts did much to advance the agricultural standard of the county and state. He was an enthusiastic advocate of good roads and worked indefatigably for the cause, believing that good highways are among the prime essentials to agricultura l progress. A charter member of the Sebastopol Berry Growers Association, Mrs. Barlow is no less enterprising than her worthy husband. In order to get the Berry Growers Association established on a firm footing she built a large warehouse at Sebastopol on the steam road, and from this has developed the large and flourishing organization which it is today.
Notes for Thomas Barlow:
The 1850 Census of Sullivan Co., Fallsburgh, New York shows his as age 37 which would make his birthdate 1813, not 1809.
He had a homestead farm which he sold to his son, Thomas, after his graduation.

NOTE: Subsequent research indicates Sarah Robbins was not the birth mother of Louisa Emily Brandon Barlow. It is possible that her father John Brandon was married three times and she would have been the issue of the 1st wife. If that is true, his second wife was Margaret Dodd and his third wife Sarah Robbins. I have yet to determine the name of his first wife.  (Teddie Allison, Dec. 2008)

Solomon Quimby Barlow

HISTORY OF SONOMA COUNTY  by Tom Gregory  Historic Record Company, Los Angeles, California - 1911                                      Contributed by Phyllis Stengl

Generations of the Barlow family had lived useful lives ill their native England before the name was transplanted to the soil of the new world, and the first member of the family of whom we have any record, is Warren Barlow, the grandfather of Solomon Q. Barlow. From Connecticut Warren Barlow went to New York state and settled in Sullivan County, where his three sons and three daughters were born. The fifth child in this family was Thomas Barlow, (see below) born June 25, 1809, and who died April 22, 1882, his entire life having been passed in Sullivan County. His companion and helpmate in life, Rachel Quimby was also a native and lifetime resident of Sullivan County, her death occurring there April 16, 1883, almost a year to a day, following the death of her husband.

In the family of his worthy couple were four sons and four daughters, one of whom was Solomon Q. Barlow. He was born May 20, 1837, and was given such education as the times and place afforded, finishing his s chooling in Ellenville high school, where he was fortunate to have as tutor Professor S. A. Law, who was then the efficient principal of the school.

During his boyhood Mr. Barlow had been a competent assistant to his father in his farming and lumbering interests, and after his graduation from high school he purchased the homestead farm and sawmill, his father thereafter removing to Napanoch, NJ. Solomon Barlow continued the business which he thus assumed until 1862, when he removed to Pompton, NJ, where for two years he was agent for James Horner & Co., during the erection of their steel and file works. It was upon resigning his position with this firm that he came to California by the Isthmus route. Coming direct to Sonoma County, he made settlement in Two Rock Valley, and on April 21, 1864, located on the ranch which was the home of the family for the following eight years. It was then, in 1872, that he purchased and located upon the ranch of two hundred and twenty acres in the same valley, six miles west of Petaluma, which was his home until his death. Here he followed dairying, general farming, horticulture and poultry raising, and at his death, August 20, 1895, left a valuable property to his widow and children.

The marriage of Solomon Q. Barlow was solemnized February 08, 1860, and united him with Elizabeth J. Denman, who was born in Sullivan County, NY, March 14, 1937, the daughter of William Denman, and who died December 3, 1874.

Five children were born of this marriage, as follows: Thomas E., deceased; Anna D., also deceased; Mrs. W.H. Darden, of Corning, California; Mrs. J. W. McNeal, of Honolulu; and Mrs. Eva Mordecai, of Petaluma.

The second marriage of Mr. Barlow occurred in Point Arena, Mendocino County, October 9, 1879, uniting him with Louise E. Brandon, who was born in Iowa City, Iowa, the daughter of John and Sarah "Robbins" Brandon, natives respectively of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and New Carlisle, Clark County, Ohio. Mr. Brandon became a pioneer settler in Iowa City, where he was living at the time of the discovery of gold in California. He crossed the plains with ox-teams and followed mining until 1854, when he returned east, settling in Dayton, Ohio, where he was a merchant until his death.

Mrs. Barlow was reared in Dayton, Ohio, and attended the public schools of that city. She came to California in the spring of 1877 and up to the time of her marriage was a resident of Point Arena.

After the death of her husband she assumed charge of the ranch and ran it until 190_, since which time she has leased it and made her home in Berkeley. Mrs. Barlow has one daughter, Grace, who is a graduate of the University of California, class of 1905, and now the wife of R.J. Brower, of Belmont.

Mrs. Barlow is a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley and is an active worker, in its varied charities.
From the "History of Sonoma County ", 1886 (author unknown), pg. 522:

Ranch had 6 acres of fine orchard of various kinds of fruit, mostly apples. Had 400 hens and at year end October 1888 had sold 6,444 dozen eggs.

He was a member of the Two Rock Presbyterian Church as was his wife and all children by his first wife. He was an elder for 12 years and on two occasions was appointed by the Benicia Presbytery commissioner to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian church.

Notes for Elizabeth Louisa Barlow:  She and her husband moved to Honolulu, Hawaii in 1902. Her husband taught science at Punahou School, a private institution. The science building is named after him. They resided at 1831 Punahou St. After his death, she moved up the hill from the school to 2115 Rocky Hill Place in Honolulu. In 1926 they went on an around the world tour. What a fabulous time to have lived in Hawaii, so early after becoming an American territory. She is buried in Chelsea, Massachusetts with her husband.

Information for the following family comes from Helen's gr grandson, William P. Stegemann   October 2008
8. Helen Ludlow3 Barlow (Thomas2, Warren1)39,40 was born in January 1843 in Fallsburgh, Sullivan Co New York.  She died on 06 April 1912 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The cause of death was long and distressing illness.  She was buried in National Cemetery at Arlington, Virginia; Section W Site 2357.

She married Norman Perkins son of Nathan Salisbury Perkins and Nancy Elizabeth Gillet on 31 December 1869 in Bruynswick, Ulster Co New York. Norman was born on 10 January 1839 in Lackawack, Wawarsing Township, Ulster Co New York. He died on 22 March 1912 in Washington, D.C. of bronchitis. He was buried in National Cemetery at Arlington, Virginia; Section W Site 2357. Norman was Superintendent of the Third Division with headquarters at Washington, D.C. of the U.S. Railway Mail Service at the time of his death.

Notes for Helen L. Barlow: Little information is known about Helen. She made her home on the Perkins’ farm in Money Creek Township, Houston County, Minnesota. Her widowed mother-in-law, Nancy (Gillet) Perkins lived with them until her death in 1900. Her husband, Norman was often away from home because of his work with the Railway Mail Service. It is assumed that Helen and Nancy managed the 230-acre farm in his absence along with raising the three children.

In Memoriam

"The world seems filled with farewells to the dying and sorrow for the dead." Our companion, Norman Perkins, after a long and brave struggle with ill health and adverse fortune, has passed over to the silent majority.

Companion Perkins was born in Lackawack, N. Y., January 10, 1839. He died in Washington, D. C., March 22, 1912, and was buried in the National Cemetery at Arlington, Va. He was educated in the public schools of his native town and in the Academy at Charlotteville, N. Y.

Soon after the outbreak of the Civil War he responded to the call of his country by enlisting as a private in the Fifty-sixth New York Infantry, September 5, 1861. He was promoted to Corporal in February, 1862, to Sergeant January 1, 1863, and to First Sergeant in June, 1863. From June, 1862, till June, 1863, he carried the colors of his regiment, and while filling that position of honor and danger was wounded at the Battle of Williamsburg.

He re-enlisted in February, 1864, was promoted to Second Lieutenant in February, and to First Lieutenant in June of that year. In September, 1865, he was commissioned as Captain, but owing to the depleted condition of his company could not be mustered.

He participated in the Peninsula campaign in Virginia and later in the campaigns in North Carolina and South Carolina and in the siege of Morris Island and Fort Sumpter. He took part in more than thirty battles and skirmishes, and was honorably discharged in October, 1865.

Companion Perkins joined the Minnesota Commandery of the Loyal Legion February 6, 1889, Insignia 6,764. He was also a member of Acker Post, Grand Army of the Republic, and of Triune Lodge of the Masonic order in Saint Paul.

Soon after the close of the war--in 1870--Companion Perkins came to Minnesota and settled on a farm in Houston County. On August 24, 1871, he received an appointment in the United States Railway Mail Service. He was promoted through the various grades of the service and on April 1, 1889, he was appointed superintendent of the Tenth Division with headquarters at St. Paul, Minn.; a position which, barring the time from 1893 to 1897, he continued to fill with signal ability and efficiency until April 1, 1911, when he was transferred to the superintendency of the Third Division at Washington, D. C., where he continued to serve till the day of his death.

Companion Perkins was married December 31, 1869, to Miss Helen L. Barlow, of New York State. His widow died in St. Paul April 6th after a long and distressing illness- fifteen days after the death of her husband--and was buried beside him in the Arlington Cemetery. Three children survive him, Miss Jessie B. Perkins, St. Paul, Minn.; Miss. E. Maud Perkins, Red Wing, Minn., and Ross B. Perkins, State of Washington.

Few men in the Railway Mail Service, to which he devoted the best years of his life, were more widely known or more highly respected than Companion Perkins. He was a man of great executive ability, of progressive ideas, and he realized the importance of keeping the mail service in order at the vital point where it touches the business public. It is difficult to estimate the full value of his forty years' intelligent labor in promoting the business welfare of the Northwest.

Personally he was a strong and forceful man, of invincible courage, and he served his country faithfully and well in war and peace. He was a man of the highest integrity and an open foe of all sham and deceit. Behind a manner that was somewhat brusque, he carried a warm heart and a kind and sympathetic disposition.

RESOLVED, That this memorial of Companion Norman Perkins be inscribed on the records of the Commandery and a copy sent as a token of sympathy and respect to each surviving member of his family.

Respectfully submitted,
J. STEARNS SMITH,

Obituary: The News, Northfield, Minnesota; Friday, March 4, 1927; page 3

Ross B. Perkins died Wednesday morning, Feb. 23, at 11:30 o’clock at his home in Eureka township. Death came after an heroic struggle with pneumonia. For a time he was thought to be improving, but he suffered a nervous breakdown and a return of the pneumonia was more than his weakened system could withstand.

Ross Blankston Perkins was born at Houston, Minn., June 6, 1881, and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Perkins. He attended public schools at Houston, and later the school of agriculture of the University of Minnesota. His marriage to Miss Letitia A. Van Slyke of Northfield took place October 16, 1913, since which time they have made their home on what is known as the Van Slyke farm at Castle Rock.

One son and three daughters were born to Mr. and Mrs. Perkins. The children who, together with Mrs. Perkins, survive are: Norman Van Slyke, aged twelve; Helen Ann, aged eleven; Jeanne Letitia, aged seven; and Ellen Gertrude, aged three.

Mr. Perkins was very much devoted to his family. He was quiet and reserved in his manner and was known as a good neighbor and true friend.

Besides his wife and children, Mr. Perkins leaves two sisters: Eleanor Maude Perkins of St. Louis, and Jessie Barlow Perkins of Berkeley, Calif.; and a host of friends and neighbors.

The funeral services were held at the home at Castle Rock and later at the Methodist Parish House in Northfield on Friday afternoon, Feb. 25. Mr. Perkins’ pastor, Rev. W. E. Gillette, was assisted at the Parish House by Rev. J. W. Taylor. The burial took place at Oaklawn cemetery. Those attending the funeral from out of town were: A. W. Van Slyke and son, Dr. Clague Van Slyke, of Benson, Minn.; Eleanor Maude Perkins of St. Louis; Mrs. T. S. Silliman of Hibbing, a sister of Mrs. Perkins; and Mr. And Mrs. William Peck of St. Paul.
Obituary: The News, Northfield, Minnesota; September 10, 1964; page 8A

The funeral service for Mrs. Letitia Perkins of Northfield, who died unexpectedly on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 1964, in Rice Hospital, Willmar, was held Friday afternoon, Sept. 4, at the Northfield Methodist church.

D. Lawrence Rule, minister of the church, and the Rev. LeRoy Kiaus of St. Paul, a former minister of the Northfield church, officiated. Miss Isabel Howland sang and Mrs. Ted Scott was organist.

Internment was made in Oaklawn cemetery. Serving as pallbearers were four grandsons and two grand- nephews. The grandsons were David, Paul, and Douglas Stegemann all of Wabasha and Glen Keuseman of Willmar, the grand-nephews: David Silliman of Rochester and Eddie Miller of Northfield.

Mrs. Perkins had been visiting at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Keuseman at Willmar when minor surgery became necessary. She underwent the surgery on August 31. The unexpected death resulted from a pulmonary clot and heart failure.

Letitia Ann Perkins was born at Castle Rock on February 3, 1881, the youngest of the nine children of Mr. and Mrs. Vader Green Van Slyke. Growing up in the Northfield Community, she was graduated from Northfield High School in 1900. (She received special recognition during alumni events of the 1960 NHS Homecoming.) She attended Carleton College, the Minnesota School of Agriculture, and was the first graduate of the College of Agriculture of the University of Minnesota. She taught home economics for a time at McIntosh.

On October 16, 1913, she was married to Ross Blankston Perkins. They made their home on the Van Slyke farm at Castle Rock until Mr. Perkins died in 1927. Mrs. Perkins then moved into Northfield and made her home at 403 College. Mrs. Perkins saw that all four of her children received college educations in spite of the family’s limited means.

She was one of the oldest members of the Methodist church and was a member of the church’s W.S.C.S. She was an honorary member of the Literary Gleaners and a member of the Northfield Senior Citizens club.

In recent years, she traveled a great deal, visiting her children in various parts of the country. During the past winter, she spent several weeks with her son at Spokane, Wash.

She is survived by four children and their spouses, Norman and his wife, Marie, of Spokane, Helen and her husband, Werner Stegemann, of Wabasha, Jeanne and her husband, Richard Schnacke, of Proctor, W. Va., Ellen and her husband, Gilbert Keuseman, of Willmar; ten grandsons and two granddaughters; one sister, Mrs. Thomas Silliman of Downey, Calif.
