Samuel K. Barlow, an early settler in the township, and who laid out the original town plat of Bridgeport on land of John Furnas, located a short distance south of that village, in the northwest part of Decatur.
He was always regarded as well behaved and peace-able, yet he had the misfortune to become the slayer of a man named Matlock, who was his brother-in-law. It appears that upon the fatal occasion he visited Matlock's house (in Hendricks County), and upon seeing Matlock attempt to whip his wife with a cow-hide. Barlow interfered for the protection of the woman, and in the fight which ensued Matlock was killed. For the homicide Barlow was confined along time in the Hendricks County jail, and finally brought to trial, which resulted in his acquittal, but the cost of his defense was so heavy that he was compelled to sell his property to pay it. He then removed from Decatur to Iowa, and afterwards to Oregon. He even was appointed justice of the peace in Clackamas county. The Barlow pass is named after him & the town of Barlow, Oregon is named after his son, William.
