BARNEY BARLOW
The Courier Herald, Dublin Georgia         Cochran man dies in early-morning blaze   11 June 2004

COCHRAN - A Cochran man lost his life in his home from a fire early this morning.   According to Cochran Fire Chief Glenn Lord, Barney Barlow, 56, of Route 2 Box 491, Cochran, died from smoke inhalation following a fire in the bedroom where he was sleeping at about 2 a.m. today. Lord said the fire appeared to have been accidental in Barlow’s single-wide mobile home located on the Old Eastman Highway. “His wife was there asleep in the back bedroom,” said Lord, adding Barlow was in another bedroom with the door closed. “The smoke detector woke her up.” Lord said Barlow attempted to get out of the room but fell in front of the bedroom door after being overcome with smoke inhalation, barricading himself in, preventing his wife from rescuing him. After firefighters arrived they were able to contain the fire to the bedroom area. Lord said he believes he has determined how the fire started and it would be considered accidental. However, he said it was too late for Barlow. Lord said Barlow’s wife had done all she could. “She tried to get him out,” said Lord.

Thomasville Times-Enterprise    25 July 2006 Mother of two dies in wreck By   Patti Dozier

THOMASVILLE — A woman injured in a one-vehicle wreck shortly after midnight Tuesday died about 13 hours later. Rebecca Jean Barlow was described as “a good person” by her husband, Billy Barlow. Mother of two, ages seven and two, Barlow was traveling alone, driving a 1999 Ford Explorer east on the north bypass about 12:30 a.m., when she apparently lost control of the vehicle, said Lt. Tim Watkins, Thomas County Sheriff’s Office chief investigator. The sport utility vehicle struck a guardrail, traveled across the highway and down an embankment. “She was trapped in the vehicle,” Watkins said. The wreck occurred one-tenth of a mile west of County Line Road.

Barlow, 29, 3271 McKinnon Road, sustained multiple trauma and died about 1:15 p.m. Tuesday at Archbold Memorial Hospital, said Thomas County Coroner Sam Brown.

Barlow’s husband of three years, a heavy-equipment mechanic, said one of his late wife’s favorite pastimes was to spend time with her children. Mr. Barlow said the couple’s older daughter was “doing OK, but upset” about her mother’s death. The younger child had not been told about the death late Tuesday afternoon.

Barlow, a Thomas County native, was a waitress at Fish Bonz, a Thomasville restaurant.

No further investigation of the wreck will be made by the sheriff’s office. “It’s completed on our part,” said Capt. David Johnson, sheriff’s office patrol commander. Senior reporter Patti Dozier can be reached at (229) 226-2400, ext. 220.
