L.N. Barlow, born c1821 in Rhode Island was married to Sarah H. Dennis.   His wife, Sarah was born in New Hanover Co North Carolina.  Apparently her mother and father were also from North Carolina.   L.N. was a 'grocer' merchant by trade.   Could you inform me as to any information such as dates of birth and death and also the names of the mothers and fathers of both these two people....and any other information about them.

Research of Susan BARLOW Holmes, April 2010:

On 24 July 1850, Wilmington, New Hanover Co NC, pg 398, #2:
 
L.N. Barlow, male, age 28, merchant, born in RI
A.H. Barlow, female, age 24, born in RI
M.J. Barlow, female, age 4, born in NC
Joseph L. Barlow, male, age 14, born in RI  (I think he is a brother)
Also in the home are:
John L. James, male, age 44, inspector, born in NC
M.J. James, female, age 33, born in NC
H. James, female, age 14, born in NC
J. James, female, age 12, born in NC
C. James, male, age 9, born in NC
Julia James, female, age 5, born in NC
John James, male, age 3, born NC
Thos. James, male, age 1, born in NC
Mary Scholar, female, $1500, born in NC
R. Tillinghast/Sillinghast, femlae, born in NC
T.C. Worth, male, merchant, born in NC
 
 
Now the next month, 11 August 1850, Willmington, New Hanover Co NC, pg 426a, they are apparently living in the home of Sarah Singletary.
In one of these census records, someone who does not know the correct ages is giving the information to the census taker, a big difference in one months time.  But we do learn their first names
 
Sarah Singletary, female, age 48, $2500, born in NC
Frank Singletary, male, age 21, born in NC
T.F. Roberson, male, age 34, born in NC
Lewis N. Barlow, male, age 28, born in RI
Abby H. Barlow, female, age 25, born in RI
Mary L. or J. Barlow, female, age 4, born in NC
Henry Chapman, male, age 17, clerk, born in NC
Joseph L. Barlow, age 17, male, clerk, born in RI   (again, I think this is probably a brother of Lewis)
 
 
02 July 1860, Wilmington, New Hanover Co NC, pg 776. #888/883:
L.N. Barlow, male, age 38, grocer, $2000/12000, born in RI
A.H. Barlow, female, age 34, born in RI
Children all born in NC
M.J. Barlow, female, age 13
W.H. Barlow, male, age 10
E.F. Barlow, male, age 8 (Edgar)
A.H. Barlow, female, age 6 (Addy)
L.B. Barlow, male, age 4 (probably died before 1870)
L.D. Barlow, female, age 6 mo  (probably died before 1870)
 
08 June 1860, Wilmington, New Hanover Co NC, pg 703, #750/751:
J.L. Barlow, male, age 25, born in RI
Mary Barlow, female, age 20, born in NC
Edward Barlow, male, age 2 mo, born in NC
 
I'm guessing that Addy has died before the 1870 census, and Lewis has remarried to Sarah now.  Sarah may have been married previously to Mr. Wilkinson.
 
01 June 1870, Brogden, Wayne Co NC, pg 29b, #463/463:

Abby H. Barlow, age 15, born in NC

Mary E. Wilkinson, female, age 8, born in NC

Kate Barlow, age 8, born in NC
Joseph Barlow, age 7, born in NC

Hattie Barlow, age 1, born in NC
Helen Lane, no occupation, age 64, born in NC
Victoria Arthur, house servant, age 14, born in NC

June 1880, Brogden, Wayne Co NC. pg 529, #394/394:
L.N. Barlow, age 59, farmer, he and both parents born in RI
Sarah Barlow, wife, age 48, keeps house, she and both parents born in NC
Mary Wilkinson, step-daughter, age 19, born in NC
 
08 June 1880, Wilmington, New Hanover Co NC, pg 105, #355/450:

Mary S. Barlow, age 40, born in NC, father born in VA, mother in NC
Mary K. Barlow, dau, age 19, born in NC

Hettie J. Barlow, dau, age 12, born in NC
Robt. S. Barlow, son, age 6, born in NC

Strangely, another Barlow lives a few doors from Joseph in #351/444:  [are they related?]
John B. Barlow, minister, age 58, he and both parents born in NC
Janie Barlow, wife, age 55, she and both parents born in NC
Jannie Barlow, dau, age 21, born in NC
William T. Barlow, son, age 19, born in NC
 
I did not locate them again in 1900.  Several Barlow's in New Hanover may be related, but I can't be sure. None in Wayne Co NC
