This information was originally compiled by Helen Barlow of Marlinton, West Virginia.
Helen was the daughter of W. Howard and Anna 'Patterson' Barlow

Note: The genealogy naming Barbara Raush and Alexander Barlow has been in existence for some time, without any proof or documentation, but recently many of the new researchers have found information, I believe will prove that Barbara's maiden name was Harvey, and her husband was Richard Barlow, not Alexander. ---See "A Husband for Barbara"---

In April 2003, DNA testing has proven that these families descend from the Isle of Wight Virginia Barlow families, which has been long said to come from England, so the theory that the family comes from France, is probably also in error.
First Generation
Alexander Barlow was a French emigrant and married an English emigrant named Barbara and was living in Bath County in the Colony of Virginia when the Revolutionary War began and he enlisted in the Continental Army and was killed in battle.

Note from Pat:
Great Aunt Anna, Great Uncle Howard and Helen have a very special place in my heart and memories. Their home was in Huntersville and as a child I spent many lovely days there with my parents. After Uncle Howard's death, Aunt Anna and Helen moved to Marlinton. The home has been restored and is now the Carriage House Inn.

Helen was an only child and never married. She was the keeper of a vast assortment of Barlow artifacts, especially pictures. There wa s a family Bible with old Barlow death notices that was in the possession of my aunt - Helen's cousin- which she told me she sold at a garage sale. When I inquired about the photos, etc. she said they were not there. Helen's death was a very sad experience for me as my aunt scooped up all and I have no idea where it went - my guess would be she sold it. My aunt is also deceased.

My paternal grandmother was a Barlow and my lineage is comprised of Brown, Campbell, Pruyne, Patterson and Poag(u)e in addition to Barlow.
