About Leven Bristow

The date and place of birth cannot be given in this history. He moved to Missouri and settled in Carrol County, near Carrolton, the county seat of Carrol county in what is called the northern part. Whether he moved there before father moved to Southwest Missouri we cannot tell. In the year 1857 or 58 we visited him twice. These visits were not but a few months a part. On my first visit I traded a horse and had to leave him there. And then went back after him. It was an hundred and fifty miles north from where my father lived. He died somewhere

in the 1860's and was buried in Carrolton. The only reason for believing that Granpap had more that seven sons is that Uncle Ed Bristow related a rime about the boys as they would go out to work. An in this rime he had the name Moses, Paul and slow Jo. But this name we think had reference to Negro Jo.
