MARTHA SPRING must have been a lovely person, she has so many namesakes! Her husband John Barrow Sr.was born Nov. 20, 1699. John and Martha were Married before 1736. She was a member of the large Spring family of Hyde & Beaufort Cos. in North Carolina. John Barrow Sr. was a Representative of the North Carolina House.John and Martha raised a large family.John Barrow Sr. died June 12, 1781. Many of John and Marthas descendents moved SW with some ending up in Simpson Co., Ms., where several Beaufort Co., N.C. families did. There were some Beaufort Co.families,who had moved to Mississippi (Simpson Co), living among the Choctaws who appear on the 1830 census.I do not know if any Barrow family members joined the tribe.Some Barrows also went the route up through middle Tn., ending up in So. IL. and W.Ky. as did several others from Beaufort Co., N.C.
