About Edward Bristow

He was born in 181?. This history cannot give the exact place, but we believe that he was born on the old ranch. He was married to a woman by the name of Ashinhurst. And he moved to Missouri a few years before father did. He first settled in St. Clair county, and he then moved to Cedar county about 5 miles further west and settled on what is called Tucketts(?) Branch. This was in the forties. They had ten children, 5 brothers and 5 sisters. And in about the year 55 she died. He lived to be 80 or more years old. He died and was buried in Cedar county, Missouri. He was a low heavy set fleshy man. And he had some knowledge of law and was justice of the peace and was called Squire Bristow. Also he was a Hatter. He was a Christian. He told me his experience of grace. He heard a man preach and the man's text was "Adam where art thou?" This brought a burden to his heart and he labored long and hard before he found relief. He said that he went out one evening to pray and he told the Lord that it was the last time that he was going to pray and that time he found relief. He had come to the end of his strength and that gave the Lord a chance to do something. And that is where everyone has to come to before he is saved. - As written by James Clawson Bristow 1908
