Birth: 1829, Ireland
Death: Nov. 4, 1894
Solano County
California, USA

Cemetery records list Bridgett's place of death as "Binghamton [sic] NC" but there is no city in North Carolina with that name, plus from other evidence she passed away at home which was near Binghamton, Solano County, CA. She is also listed on a Solano County Death Index, which tends to confirm she died in-county. So pending further evidence, she is listed for now with Binghamton as her place of death. Other family genealogy records list her place of death as Dixon. Binghamton Road is where the Belew Family Ranch is located in Dixon.

In 1870 they were listed in the Census in Ophir as Thomas and Bridget Barlow. All the children being born in the area. Thomas was a miner in Cherokee and by 1876 they had made their way to Maine Praire (Solano Co.) and Thomas took up farming.

In the 1880 census they are listed as living in Maine Prarie, Solano, Co., California. The name is written as Berlue. Bridgets name is listed as Ann F. Leading to speculation that her name may be Bridget Ann Fletcher Riley. To date no records have been found on their marriage or on Bridgets name other than her name on son Arthur's death certificate being listed as Bridget Riley, born in Ireland.
