I was just posting some information from another side of my tree to the "Parsons" forum and it occured to me that I should post something about Mary Jane Parson. She was my great-grandfather's first wife. He was Ariss VanBuren Barlow 1835-1905, son of Jesse M. Barlow (Rush County IN gunsmith of some note). After her death he married Ann (Freeland) Barlow my great grand mother. The bible of Ariss Barlow list Mary Jane Barlow's DOB as 29JUL1838 and her death as 10DEC1873. I can probably come up with a little more information if anyone is researching her. I can also acquire a photo of her gravestone if needed. Just thought it might be of use to someone.
