Israel Barlow is the namesake for Barlow Manor. Israel once said “If I could just see this Joseph Smith, I think I could detect if he is a prophet.” Israel then traveled 200 miles to visit with the Prophet. After speaking with him a short time Israel Barlow said that he knew him to be a Prophet of God.
Israel first joined the Saints in Kirtland, Ohio in 1834. He marched with Zion’s Camp, was at the Battle of Crooked River, and made the trek to Quincy, Illinois in April of 1839.
He married his wife Elizabeth Haven in Quincy, in February of 1840. Their first child, James Nathaniel was born in Nauvoo on May 8, 1841, but died the same day. Three more children were born to Israel and Elizabeth in Nauvoo. He and Elizabeth, as well as Israel’s second wife, Elizabeth Barton left Nauvoo in January, 1846.
During his time in Nauvoo, he was a loyal and trusted friend of the Prophet Joseph.
Joseph Smith himself promised Israel that there would always be descendants of his in the Church to represent him. Descendants of Israel Barlow own this property today, and are frequent visitors to the city Israel loved.
