Contemporary with this generation is John H. Barrow, who appears in the 1850 Forsyth Co. census age 46 with wife Letitia. He is listed as born in Virginia, and isn't mentioned in the will, so probably is not the son of Moses and Jemima. Is he a relative?
In 1850, Moses and Martha are living in Forsyth County with all these children except Henry. Also in the household is James G. Lowrey, age 8. Is he Martha's son?
Children of Aaron Barrow and Temperance Barham
Philip H. Barrow (ca. 1832-?)
William F. Barrow (ca. 1836-?)
John C. Barrow (ca. 1838-?)
Rufus W. Barrow (ca. 1841-?)
Nancy Virginia Barrow (1843-1923; d. in Texas) m. Edward Harmon Gilbow
Aaron J. Barrow (ca. 1848-?)
This family disappears from Forsyth Co. before the 1860 census.
Children of Philip Barrow and Elizabeth Zimmernan
James Lindsay Barrow (1836-1862) m. Celesta M. Beck (ca. 1840?), d/o William Beck and Mary Elizabeth Null
Susan Elizabeth Barrow (1839-1880) m. Romulus L. Cox (1834-1924), s/o William Cox and Nancy Leedy
Reuben Aaron Barrow (1841-1923) m. 1) Victoria A. Sanders (1850-1881), 2) Mary Florence Sullivan, d/o Nathan and Grace Sullivan; moved to Hale Co. TX
Philip Barrow was a representative for Forsyth and Stokes counties in the NC state Senate in 1850-1854, and for Forsyth Co. in the NC state Commons in 1860-1862. [from obituary, People's Press]
Philip's will, dated 1866 and probated 1872, names these three children and a grandson Henry R. Barrow. Reuben and Susan's husband Romulus Cox are executors. The abstract of the will published by the FCGS does not indicate that James is deceased, but we think he must be the James L. Barrow buried in the Zimmerman family cemetery in Stanleyville, and that his widow is the Celestia Barrow who married George W. Flynt in 1865. The Flynts do not appear in the Forsyth Co. census in 1870 or 1880, but in 1870 Philip and Elizabeth's household includes Henry Barrow age 9, as well as Romulus and Susan Cox and their daughter Lula, age 2. In 1880, R.A. (Reuben) and "Vic" Barrow are living with Romulus and Susan Cox, as is Henry Barrow age 15, listed as nephew.
Children of John H. Barrow and Lutitia (from 1850 census)
John S. Barrow (ca. 1837-?)
Margaret J. Barrow (ca. 1840-?)
James B. Barrow (ca. 1842-?) m. Charity Stewart
Ann E. Barrow (ca. 1849-?)
Private William H. Barrow died in the battle of Chancellorsville, November 1863. Whose son was he?
George Barrow (1832-1904) is buried at St. Pauls Methodist, Kernersville. His age would appear to place him in this generation, but whose son is he?
And who is Mary Barrow who married Richard Zigler in 1855?
Children of William Barrow and Mary J. Burney
Martha Lillian Barrow (1861-1862)
Walter Burney Barrow (1865-1933)
Otelia Barrow (1867-1955)
Mary Barrow (1869?-1961) m. Lewis F. Owen (ca. 1874-1954?)
Pauline Barrow (1878-?)
Mary J. age 6 months appears in the 1870 census, listed as born December 1869. In 1880 her place is taken by Mary, age 5. In 1930 Mary is listed as age 58, Is this the same child?
Children of Henry W. Barrow and Nannie Webster Florence Barrow (1875-1947) apparently didn't marry
Henry and Nannie must have married sometime between 1870 and 1875, but we didn't find a marriage record for them in Forsyth County. In 1880 they are living in Forsyth Co., however, and Nancy Webster age 65 is with them, identified as Henry's mother-in-law. Florence is their only child in 1880, and the only one named in his will.
Children of James E. Barrow and Nancy J. Whicker
Eliza Ann Barrow (1860-1862)
Henry S. Barrow (1861-1930) m. Rachel Victoria Hester (1870-1957), d/o W.H. and Eliza Hester
William Moses Barrow (1864-1923) m. Sallie L. Dwiggins (d. 1928), d/o D.B. and M.J. (Ballard) Dwiggins
Thomas Ruffin Barrow (1865-1952) m. 1) Lucy A. Fulp, d/o Moses and Annie Fulp, in 1889; m. 2) Lillie A. Martin (d. 1919) in 1896
Robert L. Barrow (1867-1945)
Sally Catherine Barrow (1870-1944)
Jasper D. Barrow (1873-1950)
James Monroe Barrow (1876-1953) buried with wife Jessie L. (1883-1956)
Minnie Barrow (1878-1969) m. Horace Combs
Mary Bertha Barrow (1882-1923) apparently didn't marry
Are they also the parents of Gideon Barrow who married Laura A. Medearis in 1893?
Children of James Lindsay Barrow and Celestia Beck
Lelia S. Barrow (1859-1860)
Henry Reuben Barrow (1861-1916) m. 1) ____ Davis, 2) Susan Gertrude Belotte; d. in Spartanburg SC Mary E. Barrow (b. & d. 1862)
The baby Lelia S. appears in the 1860 census with James and Celestia. The Forsyth Co. cemetery records book lists "Lewis S. Barrow" 1859-1860, buried in the Zimmerman family cemetery. We believe that this is the same child. In the same cemetery is listed the baby Mary E., who was born in November 1862 and lived only 11 days, and is probably also the daughter of James and Celestia. The remaining child, Henry R., does not appear in the 1860 census, but is named as a grandson in Philip Barrow's will as indicated above. Lelia Wrightson and Celestia Barrow, daughters of H.R. Barrow, are named as granddaughters in the will of L.F. Davis, November 1909, Forsyth Co.
