History


Little is known of Israel's childhood. in the spring of 1832, after hearing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, he was baptized by Brigham Young and became a member of the Mendon, Monroe County, New York Branch, along with "his mother, brother and sisters." Israel was ordained a Seventy by Sidney Rigdon on 11 January 1835, and became an original member of the First Quorum of Seventy and was the senior President of the 6th Quorum of Seventy. He was a member of Zion's Camp and participated in the historic march from Ohio to Jackson County, Missouri. He also went on a mission to New Hampshire in 1844.

It was through Israel's effort in 1839 that the Prophet Joseph Smith first learned of the availability of land near the city of Commerce, Ill., which later became Nauvoo. It was during this period that Israel stayed at the home of William M. Mace in Quincy, Ill., where he met his wife to-be, Elizabeth Haven, a first cousin of Brigham Young. She was a nurse at the home of Brother Mace during the birth of a daughter, Zuriah Mace, on 17 February 1839. Israel and Elizabeth were married 23 February i#4o, at Quinty, by Isaac Morley.

While in Nauvoo, Israel helped build the temple, was a bodyguard to the Prophet Joseph and also a member of the Nauvoo Agricultural and Manufacturing Association.

Israel and his family left Nauvoo in the spring of 1845, when the Saints were driven from their homes. He was one of those who remained to assist at Winter Quarters when the first group left for the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. The following year he and his family also made the long journey.

Israel responded to a missionary call to Great Britain, leaving 19 April 1853. He was president of the Birmingham, England, Conference for over a year. During his return in the spring of 1855, he was the Elder in charge of a company of Saints immigrating on the ship Samuel Curling. Also crossing the ocean in this same company was Lucy Heap, born 24 September 1836, at Lichfield, Staffordshire, England, the daughter of James Heap and Sarah Waters. Lucy was a convert to the Church who later, 2 December 1855, was married to Israel as his third wife by President Brigham Young in his office in Salt Lake City.

Israel Barlow was a skillful and industrious farmer, and was widely and favorably known as a nurseryman. His property in Bountiful lay in the northwest part of the area; the soil was a rich dark loam, producing abundantly a wide variety of vegetables, berries, hay, grain corn, sugarcane, carrots, beets, turnips, etc. (bio by: SMSmith)

Date of death has also been erroneously reported to be February 23, 1840.
