John M. Harlow was born in Augusta (Albemarle?) County, VA June 10, 1833. In our family we understood that John Harlow was an orphan, and had left VA either with or to follow an uncle to Kentucky. One early connection for John M. Harlow (b. VA 1833) was Horatio M Harlow. John M. Harlow married a younger family member of Horatio Harlow's wife (Rhoda Foglesong) named Elizabeth Foglesong. John M. Harlow and Elizabeth Foglesong were married in Johnson Co., IN in 1852. In the 1850 census below one sees Elizabeth Foglesong with her sister (Rhoda), brother-in-law (Horatio Harlow), and her young Harlow nephews:
