Bill Phillips in Florida October 1999

My great grandmother was Mary A. Barlow, who married William Dunn in Wisconsin and moved to South Dakota in 1876.  William made a land entry and I have his land entry case file from NARA.  William died fairly young, 1895.  Mary was born in Canada, don't know where.

There was a man, Edmund A. Barlow, who was prominent in pioneer South Dakota days.  I suspect they were, maybe brother and sister, and if so I know who the parents were.  I think they may have been related because there are several instances of the "Edmund" name showing up in the Dunn family.

Anyone know more of Mary Barlows family?

"Marilyn Bennett Echols"
I am looking for parents of Elizabeth Ann Barlow, born Nov. 6, 1846.
She married William Bennett on Dec. 25, 1867. I believe her father was George Barlow. I have no name for her mother. She and William had 9 children: Hannah, William, John, Sarah, Eva, Matilda, George, Elizabeth Ann and James Fergus, my father.
Would appreciate any and all help in locating more of my Barlow line.
My grandparents lived most of their lives in Salford, Lancaster (in the Pendleton area) They are buried in Weast Cemetery in Salford. Both died before I was born.
My father James Fergus was the only one of his family to immigrate, first to Canada and then the U.S.

"Margo Doucette" nee Barlow
My Barlow's came over to Canada as Barnardo boys in the early 1900's from Cheshire. I've done some research but it gets complicated as apparently
2 Barlow's married each other and I haven't been able to find Alfred Barlow's family.

Gayle Mann
George Acheson Barlow, called Acheson, was born 8 March 1852 in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland, the son of Robert Barlow and Elizabeth Frances Short.  He immigrated to Montreal, Quebec, Canada with his parents in 1854.  It appears he married Elizabeth Burrows 12 Feb 1878 and had two children, Letita born ca 1878 and Amanda born c1879.

Nothing more is know about Acheson until his burial shows up in Salt Lake Cemetery, Utah.  He died 28 December 1933 at a local hospital and had been a resident of 4012 Highland Drive.
The obit states he had lived in Salt Lake for several years, but there is no mention of his wife or children.

Can anyone throw any light on his life?
