Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 26, 1822
Marion County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jun. 18, 1904
Clackamas County
Oregon, USA

William was the 2nd born child to Susannah Lee & Samuel Kimbrough Barlow. His siblings: Sarah b 1821; James K b 1826; John Lawson b 1828; Elizabeth Jane b 1832; all born in Marion Co, IN.
His family were pioneers of 1845 taking the Oregon Trail to The Dalles, OR and trailblazing what came to be known as The Barlow Road over Mt Hood to Oregon City, arriving in Dec of that year.
William and his brothers, ages 17-23, would have been a great help to their father Samuel in finding a way overland to avoid taking a raft up the Columbia River from The Dalles.
William would purchase his father's DLC in Clackamas Co where today the City of Barlow is located, then known as the lower Molalla.
When his mother, Susannah, died in 1852, Samuel donated land for the Barlow Pioneer Cemetery for her burial. William's brother James K was buried there in 1866 and Samuel K himself in 1867.

William married first to Rachel Larkins, sister to Rebecca who married William's brother James.
Following Rachel's death, he married Martha Ann Partlow who had been widowed 2 times. She brought several children to their marriage and they had 3 more: MarySusannah b 1853, Virginia Ann b 1856, Cassius Union b 1858. Sadly, Virginia died at 10 yrs of age.

William and Martha Ann platted the city of Barlow in 1891 which became an incorporated city in Feb 1903.
He built a lovely Italianette style home for his wife & large family who came and went from that large residence until his death. His daughter Mary Susannah inherited the house and land before she married, but sold it out of the family in 1906.
William bought and sold many parcels of land in and around Clackamas Co before his death in 1904.
At one time between he and his two brothers their land holdings totaled nearly 2000 acres.
