MISSOURI2 BARLOW, (John1) daughter of John Barlow and Lydia Bryant, was born between 1790 - 1800, and death date unknown.

She married SOUTHALL/SOUTHWELL MYRICK 1) c1828.  The lawsuit below mentions Dennis and Patsy Myrick.  These are not children of Southall, but Fran Presswood tells me that her ancestor, Dennis Myrick, born c1814, married Martha "Patsy" Corley in Putnam Co Georgia, and had a son, Uriah Southall/Southwell Myrick born c1814.  They were in Rankin Co Mississippi in 1830.    Dennis died in 1833 according to Fran.    But Uriah Southall/Southwell would be too young to be Missouri's husband???
She married 2)  MR. ENNIS before 1840, and if Martha A.M. is indeed the daughter of Missouri and Mr. Ennis, they would have been married by 1830.
She married 3) JEREMIAH WILLINGHAM on 30 August 1848 in Rankin Co Mississippi.
Note: the last 2 marriages are not proven to be Missouri Barlow Myrick, but according to information sent by Vickie McDonald it is very likely her

PATSY MYRICK, ADMIN.  VS BRIANT BARLOW, ADMIN.
Superior Court of Chancery    June __ AD 1840

The Bill commences by stating that complaintant is Admin of Dennis Myrick, deceased.  That in said character she was ___ of ____ 1 year.  Briant Barlow for the use of Henry Barlow and that judgement was obtained against him in 1838 for $653.00 and cost of suit, that bond was given for the delivery of property, unforfeited, and execution issued thereon.  That this note on which said judgement was obtained was given by her intestate to said Briant Barlow as Administrator, for a negro girl purchased at the Administrators sale of said Briant Barlow.  The Bill further states that complaintant intestate was the owner of one distributive share of the estate of John Barlow the intestate of said Briant Barlow, by a purchase of the same from Southall Myrick and his wife Missouri, who was a daughter of said John Barlow, and took an assignement of their interest in a written power of attorney.  That some time about the time of the purchase of said Negro girl, it was understood between said Briant Barlow and complaintant intestate that the note given for said Negro girl would be satisfied and set off by the share of the estate belonging to said Southall Myrick and his wife.  That said note _____ sued on this use of Henry Barlow, is in fact the property of Briant Barlow.  That said Briant Barlow has never made a final settlement of the estate of John Barlow, deceased his intestate, and charges that as a fair and final settlement share in said estate would in amount be more than equal the amount of said note.

The answer supposes it to be true that judgement was obtained against complaintant as alledged in her Bill, and admits that the note sued was made payable to Briant Barlow as Admin. of John Barlow, deceased, although not ____ in the note, and that said note was given for the purchase of a Negro girl, Penny.  The Answer ____ that complaintant intestate ever was entitled to one share of the estate of said John Barlow, deceased.  The answer charges that Southall Myrick about 1828, that between two and three years subsequently ____ ______.  Southall Myrick left this state and has not been heard from since.  That said Missouri Myrick on the 24 March 1834, executed a power of attorney to Henry Barlow authorizing him to collect and _____ her portion of the estate.  That on the 13th day of Feb. 1837, the share of the said Missouri, as well as could their be ascertained was paid to said Henry Barlow and his reciept taken therefore.  The answer relies upon the long silence of nearly ten years, as to ban to her present recovery, even if he ever did have a right to do so.  And _____ that Briant Barlow even would have paid the share of the estate to said Henry Barlow had it been known that complaintant intestate had any claim of that nature against the said estate.  The Answer denies all knowledge of an agreement that said note should be off-set with the distributive share of said Southall Myrick and Missouri, and states very emphatically? no such agreement was made.  The Answer advises that the note said on is his own property a Admin.  The Answer admits that a final settlement of his intestate estate has not yet been made, but such settlement shall be made as early as possible, a copy of which final settlement when made is sought to be made of the Answer; and to share the actual condition of the estate.

The Answer positively denies complaintants interests in the estate of John Barlow, deceased, as also _____ _____ material allegations in the Bill.

Thus situated the ____ of the Answer must be taken as "_____" and consequently will dispose of the case as over?  If indeed complaintant intestate did purchase a share in the estate of John Barlow, the long and unexplained silence (preserved?) upon that subject, by the means of which the defendent, Briant Barlow was imposed on, and induced to pay Henry Barlow as atty. in fact of the very heir whose interest in the estate complaintant now claims, nearly the whole share of the estate _____ of itself to impose silence ____ upon the state claim setup in the Bill.   Courts of ____ and of land, never lend their aid to resesitate state claims, particularly when their ____ repose/report? has been _____ means of injuring third ____.  Will not the Statute of Limitations apply to this case?  It is thought so, and it is insisted upon in the Answer, and is none insisted upon this agreement.  Missouri Myrick's husband had been absent for nearly 10 years and has not been heard from since he left, will not this Court under all the circumstances shield the Admin. Briant Barlow who has acted honestly and with fidelity, _____ this _____ molestation of a person, who if she ever had an interest - which is very much questioned - has by her own and the ___ of her intestate (certainly?) lost it.  ______ think the (signature?) should be _____ the Damages allowed by Land

______  ______ Miles for B. Barlow


The Separate Answer of Briant Barlow to the Bill of Complaint of Patsy Myrick – Complainant Exhibited against Briant Barlow, Henry Barlow, and Southall Myrick – Defendants

This Defendant now and at all times hereafter saving and reserving unto himself all manner of belief in and exception to the many errors and (unreadable word) and other imperfections in said complaint and Bill of Complaint contained for answer thereunto, or unto so much or such parts thereof as this Defendant is advised is or are material for him to answer hereto answering saith.
This Defendant supposes it to be true that Judgement was obtained against Complainant in the manner and form, and for the amount set forth in her Bill; and that a forthcoming Bond was given for the delivery of property to the sheriff who had made a levy by virtue of an Execution enumerating beforesaid Judgement, that said Bond was forfeitant and Execution was issued therein. This Defendant admits that the note paid or was made payable thus as Administrator of John Barlow Dcsd although not so expressed on the face of the note, and that said note was given for the purchase of a negro girl Penny – of Administrator (unreadable word) under the circumstances as set forth in complainant's Bill. This defendant denies most positively that complainant intestate in his lifetime was entitled to one share of the Estate of said John Barlow Deceased; he does not know whether complainant intestate ever did purchase the interest of Southall Myrick and his wife Missouri, who defendant admits to have been the daughter of said John Barlow Dcsd. This Defendant admits that said Southall Myrick intermarried with his sister the said Missouri as well as he now recollects the year 1828, that some time subsequent to their intermarriage, he thinks between two and three years, the said Southall Myrick left the state and has never been heard of since by Respondent or his wife so far as Respondent knows. That on the twenty fourth day of March in the year 1834 the said Missouri Myrick executed a power of attorney deputing and appointing Henry Barlow and of the Defendants in complainants Bill her attorney to receive from Respondent and Administrator as aforesaid her Distributions share of the Estate of her deceased Father said John Barlow. Said Power of Attorney is herewith filed marked Exhibit 1 and is prayed to be read as part of this Answer. That on the thirteenth of February 1837 Respondent paid to said Henry Barlow as nearly as he could ascertain the distribution share of his Father's (the said John Barlow) Estate, and that the said Henry Barlow gave Respondent a receipt for Marris(?) Myrick, which Respondent avers to be the same as Missouri Myrick (unreadable word), which is herewith filed marked 2 as part of this answer. Third this Defendant avers that if said complainant intestate did purchase the share of Southall Myrick and his wife Missouri that this long and unbroken silence on the subject for the space of nearly ten years ought to bar his present recovery; inasmuch as Respondent would never have paid the money he did pay to Henry Barlow as aforesaid had he been notified of the supposed rights of complainant intestate, and Respondent relies upon this fact as a complete bar to the present action. This Defendant denies all knowledge of the agreement mentioned in complainants Bill about the note's being discharged by a (unreadable word) off with a distribution's share of the Estate, and is very confident no such agreement was made. Respondent alleges that the said note and the judgement therein are properly his own and that the note was left by him with his brother the said Henry Barlow with instruction (unreadable word) and to enforce the execution thereof.
Respondent admits that a final settlement of his intestate's estate has not yet been made by him, owing to the extraordinary obstacles he has met in making collections, but that he will do soon as he possibly can make a final and complete settlement of the same. An exemplified copy of said settlement which (unreadable) Respondent prays may be read as part of his answer showing the condition of said Estate as designated as Exhibit 3. Defendant having fully answered prays (unreadable line).

October 2014, I was contacted by Katherine Woerner, probable descendant of Jeremiah Willingham.  She found Henry Ennis, probably son of Missouri Ennis, and with her research including the 1870 and 1880 census records, we have determined that the children listed in the 1850 census are probably the children of Missouri with her 2nd husband, Mr. Ennis.
I have been unable to locate any census records whatsoever for Southall Myrick.

The surname is implied by the census taker for these children, but looking ahead to the 1860 census, it seems these children would actually be the children of Missouri with her 2nd husband, Mr. Ennis.
I could not locate Missouri in an 1860 census or 1870 census.  In 1880, Missouri Barlow is living with her daughter, Marsha /Martha Myrick, [daughter-in-law?] see below

I learned that a Jeremiah Willingham was in the 1816 Wayne Co Mississippi record, and indexed in Choctaw Co Mississippi in the 1841 record. also found several land entries for Perry and Rankin Co, dating between 1840 and 1859 granted to Jeremiah Willingham.   Jeremiah Willingham originally came from Halifax Co Virginia, and there are several conflicting genealogies of his family on the internet. Perhaps his father was Jeremiah Willingham who married Tabitha Powell, was born 1757 in Virginia, and died 1834 in Rankin Co Mississippi.
So it appears that she and Southall had at least one child
2.  DOOZ3 MYRICK, born c1815 according to the 1870 census, and apparently deceased before 1880.
It seems as though the children named as Willingham in the 1850 census are instead the children of Missouri and her second husband, Mr. Ennis:
MARTHA3 A.M. ENNIS, born c1830 in Mississippi.  No other records found
JOHN J. ENNIS, born c1834 in Mississippi.  No other records found
WILLIAM ENNIS, born c1837-1838 in Mississippi.  No other records found
3.  HENRY ENNIS, born c1845 in Mississippi and died after 1930, most likely in Jefferson Co Mississippi where he is buried.
Generation 3
2.  DOOZ3 MYRICK, born c1815 according to the 1870 census, and apparently deceased before 1880.

He married MARTHA / MARSHA.
I cannot be certain that Marsha and Martha are the same person, but the children's names and ages makes me believe that it is.

Children of Dooz Myrick and Martha/Marsha are:
4. JOHN J.4 MYRICK, born c1858 in Mississippi  [This is not proven to be Dooz son, but based on found information, I believe him to be.  If anyone can prove one way or another, please let me know.]
J. HENRY MYRICK, born c1860/1862 in Mississippi
WASHINGTON MYRICK, born c1865 in Mississippi
 
3.  HENRY3 ENNIS was born May 1843 in Mississippi, and died after the 1930 census.  He is buried in the Union Church Cemetery, Union, Jefferson Co Mississippi.  His tombsone shows no dates of birth or death, but does show him to have been in Co F, 3 MS INF, CSA.   Tombstone Photo from Find-a-Grave.com    Again, this is not proven to be the son of Missouri and Mr. Ennis, but it is quite probable.

He married 1) MARY IVEY c1870.   (Apparently Mary had previously been married, because she has a daughter who would have been born when Henry was only 12 years old.  The name Ivey is inferred from the name of his mother-in-law in the 1880 census.   She probably died before 1907 when Henry married a 2nd time.

He married 2) HARRIET BRYANT on 24 August 1907 in Jones Co Mississippi.  From the 1900 census, I learned that Harriet's first husband was named William Bryant and that she was born July 1855 but it is unclear if she was born in Alabama or Mississippi.   I was unable to locate Wm. and Harriet Bryant in an 1880 census.  Note that in the 1880 census, a Bryant granddaughter is in the home of Henry and his first wife Mary.  My thought is that the daughter, Ada whom Mary mothered before her marriage to Henry married a Bryant, perhaps even a son of Harriet.   I did find in an 1880 census of Lincoln Co Mississippi, Ada Bryant, age 20 is married to Albert Bryant.  Also in the home is a 73 year old boarder, Louisa Ivy...mother of Mary.  Louisa was with Henry and Mary on June 1, and on June 8, was enumerated with Ada and Albert Bryant.   I wonder if Albert is the son of Wm and Harriet.  I do find that Harriet's son, James / Jim lives next door to she and Henry in the 1910, 1920, and 1930 census, with his wife, Gertrude.
I was unable to locate any of the family in an 1860 census

It seems obvious to me that Ada is from a previous marriage, as Henry would have only been 12 when she was born.
