ISAAC BARTLOW, retired, son of Isaac Bartlow, Sr., whose history appears under the sketch of F. M. Bartlow, was born November 23, 1817, on Bullskin Creek. Lewis Township, Brown Co., Ohio. He was raised as the majority of boys were in those pioneer days, to fell the trees, roll logs, and clear up fields. His education, like that of many others, was obtained by walking several miles through the dense forest to school. As a son, he was dutiful and attentive at home, assisting his father, who was one of large farmers of the county. Farming claimed his undivided attention until 1878, when he retired, and located in the village of Higginsport. He remained at home until twenty-six years of age. Four years prior, his right foot was torn almost from his limb by one of the first threshing machines of the country. It was replaced, and has healed, but in an unnatural position, which, has crippled him for life, but, not withstanding this disadvantage, he has passed over three score years with success. His place of residence was Clermont County, Ohio, from March 14, 1843, when he was married. His wife was Miss Cyntheanna, daughter of Thomas West, an early settler in Lewis Township. Mrs. Bartlow was born August 7, 1822, in Brown County, where she was raised and educated. She and husband are parents of three children, viz.: Granville W., Lafayette and Emma B., wife of William M. Gardner.
