From "First Ladies of Wisconsin":
Maria Quarles Barstow was born in Salem, Massachusetts. Her family was among the first wave of Yankee settlers in Wisconsin, relocating from Massachusetts to Southport (now Kenosha) on Lake Michigan. She married William Augustus Barstow in April 1844, in Prairieville, Racine County. William Barstow was elected governor in 1853 and served one term. He was elected and sworn in for a second term in 1856 but was found guilty of election fraud and became the first governor in U.S. history to be deposed. Following this humiliation, William Barstow lived in obscurity until he died and was buried near his parents in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1863. Maria remained in the Cleveland area until her death on December 27, 1916 in Lima, Ohio.
"Maria Quarles, entered into rest at Lima, Ohio, Dec. 27, 1916 in the 94th year of her age, Maria Quarles Barstow, widow of the late Col. William A. Barstow, former govenor of Wisconsin, and mother of the late Frank Q. Barstow of East Orange, N. J.; the late A. Q. Barstow of Bayonne, N. J.; and the late W. A. Barstow of Lima, Ohio."
