Wm. Barlow Dead.

William Barlow, a pioneer settler, prominent citizen and extensive land owner and stock raiser of this county, died at 3 o'clock p.m. on last Tuesday, May 9, 1911, at the home of his son, Arthur E. Barlow, in this city. He had been in poor health for two or three years, being a
sufferer from Bright's disease. During the past four or five weeks his strength failed quite rapidly and death was not wholly unexpected at this time. Funeral services were held at 4 p.m. on Wednesday in the Presybterian church, the pastor, Rev. W. B. Leonard, being in charge. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery. The pall bearers were: J. E. Harbaugh, C. M. Cole, C. W. Burt, D. T. McIntire, Owen Connaughton, Parker Wright, John Janson, and W. H. Kimple.

Deceased was a native of England, having been born at Hooter's Hall, Staffordshire, on July 27, 1835. Had he lived until July 27, next, he would have been 76 years of age.

In 1887 Mr. Barlow came from England to America, settling a few months after his arrival, in the northeastern part of this county. His wife and most of his family came about seven years later. He was a hard worker and in a few years had acquired enough land to form quite a ranch. He gave considerable attention to stock raising and was very successful in that line.The Barlow ranch now includes 6500 acres. Mr. barlow was a man of good judgement in business affairs and a good neighbor and citizen. At heart he was reverential, kindly disposed and possessed of good and generous impulses. On July 27, 1865, while a resident of England, he was married to Miss Rachel Powell, who, with three sons and three daughters survive him. The wife, also two sons, Arthur E., and Marshall, and two daughters, Misses Marion and Kate, are residents of this city. Miss Amy, a daughter, is a trained nurse in Emporia. A son, William H., now makes his home in Kansas City.
