FAMILY RECORD OF THE BARROW FAMILY

Donated by: Virginia Cheek

Compiled by Andrew Jackson Barrow, Campbell Hill, Illinois, and entered in the Record Book of the Unity Church as follows:

Campbell Hill, Jackson Co., Ill.
December 16th, 1910

As stated in the first part of this book, it was bought by John Barrow September 1838 for the use of Unity Church.  As the records in this book will show the church ceased to use it for that purpose in December 1871.  The author of this sketch being a grandson of the donor and having possession of said book, think it proper to use the following pages for a family record beginning with my Great Grandfather Daniel Barrow who served in the old Revolutionary war from its beginning to the end, and his descendants as far as is known to me.

A. J. Barrow
