Charles P. Barlow (1838 - 1874) is first found in the 1850 Lawrence County, TN census report under
the household of John & Elvira Barlow. His age was listed as 12, placing his birth year at 1838, and
his place of birth was listed as TN.  His birth year has most consistently been listed as 1838.  Documentation verifies that he did serve during the Civil War.  He is also listed in the
 1860 census in Lawrenceburg, TN., and the 1870 Giles County census in Campbellsville, TN.  A marriage record
shows that Charles married Eliza Barlow in 
1858.  We are entering into the records that it was the
same Eliza Osburn who was first married to William Henry Barlow in 
1845, based on a recently discovered death certificate of Charles's daughter.  The death certificate lists C.P. Barlow as her
father, and 'Miss Osburn' as her mother.  There is an ongoing effort to find a divorce record between
William Henry and Eliza that would have given Eliza the freedom to eventually marry Charles.  Elvira
Kansas Barlow was born 10 months prior to the marriage between Charles and Eliza.
