The Interstate Progress     Logansport Louisiana    December 07, 1961
A.D. Barlow, Sr., 80 years of age, was burned to death Tuesday afternoon in the home he shared with his son, Allen Barlow in the Bethel community about four miles east & north of Logansport. The tragedy occurred about 1:30 p.m. and the cause of the blaze was undetermined. It is thought that Mr. Barlow met his death when he went back into the burning house to retrieve a suitcase as this was found near his body in the ruins of the home. He was just a few steps from the door and safety.
Mr. Barlow's son, Allen, said he left the house about 1:00 to go squirrel hunting to get squirrel for a family celebration they were planning for Mr. Barlow's birthday in January. It is reported that after he had gotten some distance away he thought he heard someone call, he stopped to listen, but as he heard no further sound, he went on his way. He did not know of the fire until he returned much later.
A neighbor, Mrs. W.E. Stephens, saw smoke and called Mr. Barlow's daughter, Mrs. B.L. (Nina) Curry, at her office at Interstate Progress in Logansport. Billy Garrett of the Progress notified the fire department and they made a fast run out to Bethel, but the home was a smoking ruin when they arrived. At first it was not known for sure if Mr. Barlow had been in the house, but later this tragic fact was verified.
Immediate survivors are his son, Allen Barlow; two daughters, Mrs. B.L. Curry and Mrs. O.L. Morris of the Bethel community; two brothers, E.L. Barlow of Akron, Ohio, and Eugene Barlow of Corrizo Springs, Texas; five sisters; Mrs. Suzie Watkins and Mrs. Leta Berry of Harrisville, Mississippi, Mrs. Ida Peters[on] of San Antonio, Texas, Mrs. Amanda Ainsworth of Corsicana, Texas, and Mrs. Clara Gray of Lytle, Texas; eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Mr. Barlow was born in Harrisville, Mississippi, January 21, 1882, and moved to Bethel about fifty years ago. He was a member of the Methodist Church.
The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. at the Bethel Methodist Church. The officiants were the Rev. H.T. Isgitt and the Rev. Kenneth Norton. Interment was in the Bethel Cemetery. The pallbearers were Coy Hassell, Eddie Glen Hassell, Buddy Tyler, Fay Stiles, and John Shirey, all his nephews and Lovett Hughes.
