"BARLOW RECORDS. -- Among the records of Mrs. Rachel Ward (Hurd) Allerton, who was born at Amenia, N. Y., 2 July 1822, was married there, 25, Jan. 1845, to David Allerton, and died at Binghamton, N. Y., 24 Oct. 1909, a small manuscripot book was found, containing a partial list of the descendants of Peleg Barlow of Sandwich, Mass., and of Amenia, N. Y. It is not possible now to say positively by whom this record was written; but from the paper, penmanship, and general appearance, it must have been prepared about seventy-five years ago, and there is some reason for believing that the compiler was one of the children of Thomas Barlow by his second wife, Lucy Allerton. From the fact that in all cases where it has been compared with other records it has been found to be correct, it should undoubtedly be accepted as a valuable contribution to the history of the family.
The paretage of Peleg Barlow has bot been definitely ascertained. He was, however, probably a son of Moses Barlow, of Sandwich and Rochester, Mass. Mrs. Allerton, the former possessor of this record, was herself a descendant of Peleg Barlow, being a daughter of Hebron and Eliza (Barloe) Hurd (vide infra). The record is given below as it was written, except that some additional details enclosed in brackets, have been supplied.
