Anne (Miller) Barklow, 2nd w/o Samuel Barklow(1841-1897).
[Obit] AUNT ANNIE BARKLOW CALLED TO HER REWARD,
The Church of the Brethren was filled to more than its capacity Sunday afternoon[Apr.3] when friends and relatives gathered to honor the memory of Anne Barklow, otherwise known to young and old alike as "Aunt Annie" who passed to her reward Friday night, at the age of eighty-one years, six months and six days.
Aunt Annie was one of those pioneer women whose influence in the community can never be estimated. Having united with the Church of the Brethren at the age of sixteen, she was faithful until death. People who had no special regard for religion readily admitted that she was a wonderful woman and that her life was an example of a real Christian. She was the first to advocate the Church of the Brethren having a regular pastor.
Not only was she deeply religious, but having a keen mind, she was always alert in civic affairs throwing her balance toward the bettering of the community. Her advice was sought in public and private life.
To those who knew her intimately as "Mother" no words can express the guidance, the comfort, the help and the love that this mother so unsparingly gave.
Anne Miller Barklow was born in Bedford county, Penn-sylvania Sept.25,1845. She was married on Sept.8,1866 in Keokuk county,Iowa, to Elder Samuel S. Barklow. In 1872, three families started out from Iowa and came by rail to Red Bluff,California. From here they came by team to Coos county. They came over the Coos Bay wagon road which had just been built as far as Fairview and from there to Coquille they had to blaze their way. (SCCA-4/7/1897)
