“History of James Smith and His Children”     Published September 04, 1908


Excerpt covers Sarah Jane Smith 1822-1896 and Harvey Rice Barlow 1818-1872


Sarah, being the oldest daughter, early learned to help her mother with the housework and to spin and weave. At that time it was the women’s work not only to make the garments, but also to spin and weave the material. Besides making their own, and the boys’ and men’s clothes they spun their bed and table linen and wove their blankets and carpets. Aside from the many home duties, Sarah found time to mingle with the young people of the neighborhood and entertain many suitors. She was a very beautiful girl, with a sweet, quiet dignity of manner, which caused her to be much sought after by the young men of her acquaintance. At the age of eighteen she gave her hand to the young schoolmaster, Harvey R. Barlow. They went to housekeeping in a cabin near the schoolhouse, on the land afterwards owned by her brother, Alex. Soon after they moved onto a farm, known as the Worrell farm, and later to one about a mile north of the White Lick Presbyterian Church.
Sarah Barlow
Not long after locating here a sad misfortune befell them. It was on the third of September, 1859, while the family was away at church, robbers entered the house and after plundering it, set it on fire, completely destroying the building and all its contents, leaving the family in very destitute circumstances. Their neighbors and friends at once rallied to their aid, and with liberal donations of material and help soon restored to them a larger and more comfortable house than the one destroyed. They also supplied them with sufficient food and clothing to keep them from suffering through the winter. Here they lived until the spring of 1868, when they traded for a farm in Iowa.

In April of that year they moved. Their son James (James Milton Barlow) took the household goods through in a wagon, the rest of the family going by rail as far as Des Moines, this being the terminus of the railroad at that time. Here they were met by the wagon and proceeded to their destination, Indianolia, Warren County. Being dissatisfied with this location, in the fall of the same year they returned by wagon to Indiana. On their way back they visited her brother, George, in Missouri. They again settled on the farm which they had left in the spring, living here in comfortable circumstances until the death of her husband. After which she took up the responsibility of providing for herself and children.

Although this burden was a heavy one she bore it bravely and patiently. The children were soon stimulated by the zeal of the kind and loving mother to join heartily with her in earning a support for themselves. So, by the products of the mother’s loom and the harvest from the fields, they lived happily together, until the children were able to provide homes for themselves to which they welcomed their mother. Sarah was a very earnest Christian and for years a faithful worker in the White Lick Presbyterian Church, of which she was a charter member.

There were eight children. - see below

James M. Barlow, one of the substantial farmers of Washington Township, an old soldier of the Civil War, and an experienced educator, was born in Washington Township, Hendricks County, Indiana, September 13, 1845. His father was Harvey Rice Barlow, who married Sarah J.'Smith' Barlow.

He was from an old American family, of Irish and Dutch descent, (see note) and came from Georgetown, Kentucky, and settled in Washington Township, Hendricks County, Indiana, in 1827, with his father, Enoch Barlow, when but nine years of age. Enoch as a carpenter and joiner by trade, and a farmer and original pioneer, and well known.

His wife was Jane Seller, was a leader in the Presbyterian Church, and was a preacher in the First Baptist Church of this county, and was foremost in establishing Sunday-schools. She died in 1850, June 06, aged seventy-six years.

Mr. Barlow was the first one buried in Washington Township. He died in 1837. Harvey R. Barlow entered land in what is now known as Lincoln Township, and was one of the first settlers of Washington Township, having no neighbors nearer than five miles.

In politics he was a Republican and abolitionist.

He was a member of the Presbyterian Church, in which he was an elder many years.

He reared a family of five children: James M., Ruth A., Myra A., Harrison S., and Harvey M., all born in Hendricks County, Indiana. Mr. Barlow lived to be fifty-four years old and died, August 05, 1872.
James Milton Barlow
Jim Barlow ... great grandson of James Milton Barlow writes:

The biography notes J.M.'s "Dutch and Irish" descent. Well, the Dutch probably should read German to reflect his relationship as a descendant of Virginia immigrant Christopher Parlur/Barlow.

This biography was published in a Hendricks County Indiana history book, and reflects even my own family's long-time lack of knowledge of, or unwillingness to accept, its roots to Germany. There has been a lot of published history that even referred to many of Germanna II's members as Dutch -- even the Hebron Lutheran Church was called the old Dutch church in one often-cited book. But virtually all colony members have been more accurately traced through parish and other community records to Baden-Wurtenburg, Germany.

As for the Irish roots, that is accurate. James Milton's grandmother, Jane Sellers, is from a pretty well documented line from Northern Ireland. James M.'s mother, Sarah Smith, had Scottish blood through her immigrant father, who died at Sarah's house in Hendricks County.
Honorable James Milton Barlow
Page 22: A Biographical Directory of the Indiana General Assembly - Volume 2, 1901-1984


It is a pleasure to investigate the career of a successful, self made man. Great honor attaches to that individual who, beginning the great struggle of life alone and unaided, gradually overcomes environment, removing one by one, the obstacles in the pathway of success, and by the master strokes of his own force and vitality succeeds in forging his way to the front and winning for himself a position of esteem and influence among his fellow men. Such is the life, briefly stated, of James M. Barlow for several decades recognized as one of the most substantial and representative citizens of Hendricks County, to a brief synopsis of whose life and character the readers attention is herewith directed.

His life and the history of this locality for a period of nearly half a century has been pretty nearly one and the same, and he has lived to see and take a prominent part in the later growth of the community. He is a progressive man in the broadest sense of the term. Realizing the wants of the people, he has tried to supply the demands of his constituents generously and unsparingly. His has been a life of honor and trust, and no higher eulogy can be passed upon him than to state the simple truth that his name has never been coupled with anything disreputable, nor has there been the shadow of a stain upon his reputation for his integrity and unwavering honesty. He has been a consistent man in all that he has undertaken, and his career in the various relations of life has been utterly without pretense. Because of his earnest life, high attainments, well rounded character and large influence, he is largely entitled to representation in a work of this character.

James Milton Barlow was born September 13, 1845 in Washington Township, Hendricks Co, Indiana, and is the son of Harvey R. and Sarah E. (Smith) Barlow, the former born April 01, 1818, in Scott County, Kentucky, and the latter born in Henry County, Kentucky, December 08, 1822. To these parents were born eight children, four sons and four daughters, of whom four still survive, namely: the first born died in infancy; Hannah Jane C. died in early youth; James M., the subject of this sketch was next in order of birth; Ruth Ann lives in Marion County; a daughter, who died in infancy; Mrs. Myra Alice Medsker died at the age of forty years, leaving a husband and eight children; Harrison S. of Brownsburg, Indiana; and Harvey Morton of Brownsburg. The subject's paternal grandfather, Enoch Barlow, was the son of a Revolutionary soldier and he himself was one of the early settlers in Scott County, Kentucky, is birth having occurred in Virginia. Eventually he moved to Indiana and in September, 1828, settled near Brownsburg where he spent the remainder of his days, his death occurring in November, 1837. He was survived a number of years by his widow, who died on June 16, 1856. They were the parents of eleven children, seven sons and four daughters. Harvey R. Barlow was a man of considerable prominence in his community and was captain of a company of state volunteers. Harvey R. came to Indiana at the age of ten years at the time of his fathers death and took upon himself the management of the home farm. He was of necessity deprived of educational advantages, two months comprising the entire period of his attendance at school. However, he was of a studious disposition and by the most persistent efforts acquired a splendid education, so that for many years he was enabled to teach school to the entire satisfaction of parents and pupils. His death occurred on August 5, 1872. His wife, whose maiden name was Sarah J. Smith, and who was a native of Kentucky, died at the age of seventy-three years. She came to this state in 1837, and was a woman of splendid qualities of character, an ardent Presbyterian and rearing her children in that faith. In the early life of Hendricks County, Harvey Barlow was prominent and progressive in his methods, having built the first saw- and grist-mill in the county. He was a man of strong character and forceful personality, and in the community where he lived, he was held in high esteem.

James M. Barlow received his elementary education in the public schools, and then became a student in Wabash College. On April 30, 1864, when but eighteen years of age, he enlisted in Company H, One Hundred and Thirty-Second Regiment, Indiana Volunteer Infantry, with which he rendered valiant service until receiving an honorable discharge in September 1864. He took part in a number of hotly contested engagements and arduous campaigns, and received a certificate of thanks from President Lincoln and Secretary of War, Edwin H. Stanton, for valuable services rendered by him during the Atlanta campaign. Mr. Barlow has been a very active man, and at the close of the war, he went on the road as a traveling salesman for Powers & Weeks, lithographers of Cincinnati, Ohio, with whom he remained for two years. He then engaged in teaching school, and was thus employed in twenty-two different schools, gaining an enviable reputation as a professional teacher and good administrative officer. For a while, he also gave some attention to auctioneering, in which he was successful, and also owned and operated a butcher shop in Brownsburg, and also a drug store. Then he was employed as bookkeeper for a firm in Pittsboro, in which position he gained a good, practical experience. In young manhood, by rigid economy and wise management, he succeeded in acquiring a small farm, which he operated with such good success that he was enabled to add to it from time to time, until at length, he became the owner of seven hundred acres of fine farming land, of which he has given four hundred to his children, owning now, three hundred acres of land. Aside from his farming interests, Mr. Barlow is identifed with the Van Camp Packing Company of Indianapolis. Strong and forceful in his relations with his fellow men, he has gained the good will and commendation of all with whom he has been brought in contact, ever retaining his reputation among men for integrity and high character, and never losing that dignity which is the birthright of a gentleman. The splendid success which came to Mr. Barlow has been directly traceable to the salient points in his character, for he started in life at the bottom of the ladder, which he mounted unaided. He is a splendid example of the virile, progressive, self-made man, who believes in doing well whatever is worth doing at all.

Politically, a Republican, Mr. Barlow has for many years been active in public affairs, and has been an important and influential factor in many movements for the welfare of the state. In 1897 and 1899, he was representative from Hendricks County, and in 1901-2-3, he was a member of the Senate, representing the district of Boone and Hendricks Counties. In these bodies his ability was recognized and he wa placed on several of the most important committees. He was chairman of the agriculture committee, chairman on the committee for reformatory institutions, and on a number of other committees in both bodies. He served his community as justice of peace for four years, and a noteworthy feature of his administration of his office was that he was influential in having many cases settled out of court, thus saving useless litigation and expense. His decisions as justice of peace were marked by a high sense of fairness and justice, never having a decision reversed in the higher courts. Fraternally, Mr. Barlow has been a member of Lodge No. 188, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, for forty-eight years. He is also a member of the Improved Order of Red Men, Lodge No. 167, and at present, a member of Post No. 186, Grand Army of the Republic. He was charter member of John A. Hollett, Post No. 182, Grand Army of the Republic. In the Knights of Pythias, Mr. Barlow has been quite prominent, having taken an active part in the organization of the Uniform Rank, being elected major of the First Battalion, First Regiment, this being the first regiment ever organized in this body, and the first and oldest regiment in the world. Mr. Barlow served as chief of staff of Commander in Chief, Thomas A. Stewart of Pennsylvania, when the Grand Army of the Republic met at San Francisco, and has for many years been prominent in the various councils of this veteran organization. For twenty years, Mr. Barlow served as president of the Old Settlers' Picnic, one of the popular and prominent organizations of Hendrick County, an annual feature of which was an address given by the governor of the state. Religiously, Mr. Barlow has for many years been a faithful and earnest member of the Presbyterian church, of which he is an elder, and in 1903 was one of the delegates from Indiana to the general assembly of the church which met at Philadelphia. Mr. Barlow is a public spirited man in all that the term implies and is actively interested in enterprises tending to promote the general welfare, withholding his support from no movement for the good of the locality honored by his residence. His personal relations with his fellow men have been mutually pleasant and agreeable, and he is highly regarded by all, being easily approached, obliging and straightforward in all relations of life.

On May 17, 1871, Mr. Barlow was married to Sarah E. Hornaday, a daughter of Isaiah Hornaday, a farmer of Washington Township, this county, and was one of eight children, five of whom are now living. To this union have been born eight children: William E. of Minneapolis, a teacher in the public schools, having charge of the manual training department in the South high school. He is married and the father of four children: Henry Dickerson, a farmer on the old homestead in Washington Township, has four children living: Walter Harvey, a farmer in Guilford Township; has four children; Myrtle of Plainfield who married Fred Breedford, a merchant of that city; Virgil M., who lives in Missouri, married Edith Anderson; Albert Paul of Plainfield, a merchant, married Marie Hollingsworth; Harrison Porter, who died at the age of three years; and Mary S., the youngest in order of birth, who is attending college at Terre Haute, Indiana.

History of Hendricks County, Indiana: Her People, Industries and Institutions"
by John V. Hadley, Editor & Publisher, 1914

To a great extent the prosperity of the agricultural sections of our country is due to the honest industry, the sturdy persistence, the unswerving perseverance and the wise economy which so prominently characterize the farming element of the Hoosier state. Among this class may be mentioned the subject of this life record who, by reason of years of indefatigable labor and honest effort, has not only acquired a well merited material prosperity, but also richly earned the highest esteem of all with whom he is associated. Harrison Smith Barlow is a native of this county, having been born in Lincoln township, about three miles southwest of Brownsburg, on October 15, 1860, the son of Harvey Rice and Sarah Jane (Smith) Barlow. Sarah Smith was a native of the state of Kentucky and came to Indiana while young and it is thought possible that Harvey Rice Barlow also came from the same place. Sarah Smith's father, whose wife was named Hannah, entered a tract of land from the government, this land lying near Danville, this county. There they lived a number of years, the mother dying while Sarah was still a small child. After his marriage, Harvey Rice Barlow purchased land in Washington township and there he built a saw and grist-mill, which was run by water power. He later traded this business and farm for a tract of land about three miles south of Brownsburg and there passed the remainder of his life, his death occurring in 1872. The mother died in 1896. It was on this farm that the subject of this sketch first saw the light of day, being one of a family of seven children. He remained under the parental roof until the time of his marriage, when he purchased the farm where he was born. About 1902 or 1904, Mr. Barlow sold the old homestead and purchased a farm some two miles southwest of Brownsburg, where he lived for some six or eight years, when he purchased his present farm of fifty-two acres something over a mile northwest of Brownsburg. Here he carried on general farming and its kindred interests. At one time, Mr. Barlow gave particular attention to the raising of fancy vegetables, always having an elaborate display at both the state and county fairs.

On March 15, 1882, Mr. Barlow was united in marriage with Emma B. Fogleman, a native of North Carolina and the daughter of William and Elizabeth (Ferguson) Fogleman, her birth occurring about 1865. Elizabeth Ferguson, her mother, was a daughter of Archibald and Sarah Ferguson. William Fogleman left his original home in North Carolina and removed to Missouri when Mrs. Barlow was a child of three years. They lived there some three years and then came eastward again, stopping in Indiana, where they located in Hendricks county, in the town of Plainfield. Mr. Fogleman was a carpenter by trade, and both he and his wife died when Emma B. was fifteen years old, she being one of a family of three children. After the death of her parents, she was taken into the home of William Hadley, a brother of Judge Hadley, and remained there until the time of her marriage.

Mrs. and Mrs. Barlow have had three children, one of whom Charley Ambrose, died when thirteen years of age. Gertie, a daughter is the wife of Wilbur Lowder and they have two children, Herbert and Annis. Their home is about one mile north of that of the subject. The other child, Clara William, married Willis Pruitt and they live on a farm in Marion county, about seven miles northwest of the city of Indianapolis.

Politically, Mr. Barlow has always been identified with the Republican party, taking an active interest in its campaigns. He served a road supervisor for twelve years, and during that time did much to improve the highways of the county. His religious connection is with the Presbyterian church, both he and his wife being members of same and taking an active interest in the society, contributing of both time and means to further the cause. His fraternal affiliation is with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Knights of Pythias, in the work of which societies he takes a keen interest, and Mrs. Barlow is a member of the women's degrees of these orders, being both a Daughter of Rebekah and a Pythian Sister. She also belongs to the Woman's Relief Corps.

There is much that is commendable in Mr. Barlow's life record, for he has been found true to duty in every relation, where of a public or private character, and while energy and untiring industry have been salient features of his business career, he is equally well known for his uprightness and the honorable methods he has always followed and for his loyalty to any trust imposed in him. Because of his genial and unassuming disposition and his genuine worth, he enjoys a well deserved popluarity throughout his county.

History of Hendricks County, Indiana: Her People, Industries and Institutions     by John V. Hadley, Editor & Publisher, 1914

Prominent in the affairs of Hendricks county and distinguished as a citizen whose influence is far extended beyond the limits of the community honored by his residence, the name of Henry D. Barlow stands out a conspicuous figure among farmers of the locality of which this volume treats. All of his undertakings have been actuated by noble motives and high resolves and characterized by breadth of wisdom and strong individuality and his success and achievements but represent the result of fit utilization of innate talent in directing effort along those lines where mature judgment and rare discrimination lead the way.

Henry D. Barlow, the son of James M. and Sarah E. Barlow, was born September 09, 1874 in Brown township, this county. His father was born September 13, 1845 in Washington township, Hendricks county, Indiana, the son of Harvey R. and Sarah E. (Smith) Barlow. Harvey Barlow and wife were the parents of eight children: Hannah Jane, deceased; James M., whose sketch is presented elsewhere in this volume; Ruth Ann Osborn; Mrs. Myra Alice Medsker, deceased; Harrison S.; Harvey M., and two who died in infancy. The great-grandfather of Henry D. Barlow was Enoch Barlow, whose father was a Revolutionary soldier. Enoch Barlow came to Indiana in 1828, settling near Brownsburg, in this county, where he spent the remainder of his life, dying there November 1837, his widow surviving him some years, her death occurring in June, 1856.

Henry D. Barlow was accorded such education as was given in the district schools of his township, and at an early age began to work upon his father's farm. He has lived on the place where he is now residing since he was ten years of age. He has improved his farm and stocked it with modern farming implements and all the necessary accessories for successful farming, and as a tiller of the soil he has been one of the most successful and progressive of his township. He combines the raising of grain with the buying and selling of livestock and thereby, by the use of good judgment, he has been more than ordinarily successful.

Mr. Barlow was married September 09, 1896, to Minnie M. Douglass, daughter of John H. and Mary S. Douglass, of Guilford township, this county. She was born November 17, 1876, in Plainfield, and was educated in the common schools and academy of that place. Mr. and Mrs. Barlow are the parents of six children: Josephine Barlow, born May 11, 1897, died August 18, 1899; Milton Paul, born April 16, 1901,and now a pupil in the Plainfield schools; Helen, born April 18, 1905; Marjorie, born October 13, 1907, died July 23, 1909; Mary Elizabeth, born June 19, 1911; Frank Phillips Barlow, born May 21, 1914. Mr. and Mrs. Barlow are very proud of their children and are giving them every educational advantage in order to equip them for useful careers in their later life.

Mr. Barlow is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, both subordinate and encampment, and also of the Knights of Pythias, both lodges being at Plainfield. Mr. Barlow is a man whom to know is to admire, for he has led a most exemplary life and has sought to do his whole duty in all relations with his fellow men. He is a man of honor, public spirit, charitable impulses and unswerving integrity and enterprise, and is consequently deserving of mention in a history of his county.

Additional notes on Albert Barlow and family, from grandson, James E. Barlow, based on family oral history:

Albert died while returning from the family farm to the Spot Cash Store in Plainfield, when his auto was struck by a freight train. The cause of the accident was never clear; their was speculation that his brakes failed. He was thrown from the vehicle, down into a ravine, where his head struck a large rock.   He was pronounced dead at the scene.    His body was kept in the front foyer of his house, now owned by his daughter, Esther Barlow Broyles, in Plainfield, until relatives could arrive from out of town. His daughter, Esther, was 8 years old at the time. She said that Albert was a man who sought compromises. She still remembers how he had once said that a family member may disagree with another family member, but no argument or deed should ever separate the love within a family.

Albert's son, James Thomas Barlow, was 13 and had just missed going with his dad out to the farm that morning. Instead he rode his bike down to the store, and rode around downtown while he waited for his dad to arrive. A family member was dispatched to retrieve him home before he heard the news of his popular and well known father.

The broken pocket watch that Albert had in his possession at the time of his death is now in a glass case, along with the watches his wife, Mimi Marie Hollingsworth, and his son James T. Barlow, were wearing when they died. She died of a massive heart attack in February 1981. Son James T. died along with his wife, Mabel Alberta Wiatt, in an auto accident on April 11, 1996, along Highway 90 east of Del Rio, Texas.

Marie, as she was known, never remarried. She never drove a vehicle after her husband's death, nor would she allow a vehicle she was in to take the route to and from the farm. She became very active in the Plainfield Baptist Church. She was very much a believer in God. She opened her home to people in need, operated an apartment building in what was then known as the Barlow Building in downtown Plainfield, and she was part of a team of rescue workers and care-givers that responded to a destructive tornado in western Hendricks County. She spent many a day reading to me, playing board games and caring for me. She made the best chocolate chip cookies in the world.

Sunday, June 25, 2000

Esther Barlow Broyles and Glen Moses Broyles, both descendents of Germanna Colony II immigrants in Virginia, were honored by the governor of Indiana during a regional Democratic Party supper in Avon, Hendricks Co Indiana.

Glen and Esther became the first couple in Indiana history to receive the Sagamore of the Wabash Award -- the highest honor bestowed by the state's governor as a personal tribute to those who have rendered a distinguished service to the state or to the governor. Governor Frank O'Bannon recognized them for their 60-plus years of service and commitment to the Democratic party and for their support of his run for state office.

For the record, Esther's face lit up and she sported a smile the size of Texas when the governor, whom she sat next to, announced the honor.

Coincidentally, the supper was held only miles from where Germanna descendent Enoch Barler/ Barlow, son of Adam, bought land in 1827.
