Children of JOHN BARLOW and REBECCA YOUNG are:

i.
GEORGE S.2 BARLOW
David "Dave" Swickheimer, mining millionaire and owner of the Enterprise Land & Colonizing Co
Excerpt: Around 1877 he went to Colorado, where he struggled to develop a mining claim. To continue in the expensive business of mining he also took other jobs, such as hauling freight, serving as sheriff (he was elected in 1884 but resigned by 1886 or 1887),and working as a saloonkeeper. His wife, Laura, took in boarders and insisted that Dave keep working the claim. When Laura won $5,000 in the Louisiana lottery, this windfall was put into the mine. The prize money was down to less than $100 when a vein of almost pure silver was reached. Swickheimer struck it rich in 1886 at the Enterprise mine on Newman Hill, becoming Rico's first millionaire. Shortly after the discovery, David and Laura Swickheimer were divorced. George S. Barlow had a half interest in the mine, which he sold to Swickheimer on May 13, 1890. Swickheimer's silver mine sold for $1.25 million in 1891.
The rest of the story is about David, nothing more about George Barlow BIBLIOGRAPHY: Colorado Magazine, January 1951.    Robert tells us that George was tragically murdered in Mexico in 1901.
