Barrows from Niagara Falls, NY

Journal by jenlynn97

On my husband's side, I know as far back as his great-grandfather. I have Nicholas Barrows (b. 1977) who is my husband. His father is Lawrence John Barrows (b. 1940s), born in Niagara Falls, NY. He has a brother Edward. His father was John Luke Barrows (b. 1914) from Niagara Falls, NY. He had brothers Raplh, Leland and sisters Doris, Mary and Clair. Their father was James Edward Barrows (b. 1884). His wife was named Orpha, but I do not have a maiden name for her. I also do not know James Edward's father's name. I keep running into the more famous Sartwelle-Barrows branch (not sure if they are related, but it is quite possible) also from Niagara Falls in the 1800's, but that is not our line, at least as far back as I can tell. I am looking for information on James Edward Barrows who was married to an Orpha and they lived in the Upstate NY area, though James Edward was working on bridges to Canada and drops off the US census occasionally because he technically lives in Canada at the time. Frustrating! :)

Hi! I am also a Barrows "hunter" tho I have no direct relation to this particular Barrows family. Have hit the same stumbling block...if only a 1900 census record would show up for John Luke :D If you happen to find anything helpful, please let me know...I hate mysteries :)

BTW, Clair is male, b. 11/21/1906, d. 5/1955. Married to Fayelista in Abt. 1928, daughter Barbara.
