Lucinda "Lucy" Bivins Barrow
Birth: 1809
Baldwin County
Georgia, USA
Death: Dec. 21, 1873
Carroll County
Georgia, USA

Rev. James Reeves Barrow
b: 25 DEC 1801
Washington Co., Georgia

2 JAN 1825
Milledgeville, Baldwin Co., Georgia
The Christian Index and South-Western Baptist, dated 8 January 1874

Died in Bowdon, Georgia, December 21st, 1873, Mrs. Lucy Barrow, wife of Rev. James Barrow. The deceased was married in 1825, baptized in Upson County, by Rev. Jacob King. On Saturday, 20th ult., in the absence of the family, her clothing caught on fire, and before she was discovered she was almost suffocated. Her sufferings were agonizing, and her last moments were in a state of insensibility. For many years she shared in the labors and toils of a minister of Christ. She rests from her labors, leaving the aged servant to toil on in hope of eternal glory. May the Good Shepherd lead him safely and peacefully through life to glory.

Net Note: [Lucy's clothing caught fire while she was working around a wash pot. Some passing by Indians found her and extinguished the flames but too late. Her marker in the Bowdon Baptist Church Cemetery gives her date of death as Feb. 1874. This is surely incorrect as this obituary was published in Jan. 1874.]
