Martha Ann married William Barlow in 1852 bringing several children to this union; together they had 3 more: MarySusannah b 1853, Virginia Ann b 1856, Cassius Union b 1858.

This home has been lovingly preserved by a former owner, Virginia Miller. The house is included on The National Register of Historic Places and is a private residence today, located on Hwy 99E.
