Oliver M. Bartlow

For the past seventeen years Oliver M. Bartlow engaged in the livery business at Everest, in 1882 and in 1895 came to Horton, as the proprietor of a livery and feed stable, and his close application, energy and straightforward dealing has secured to him a liberal patronage and made him one of the prosperous men of the town.

He was born in Campbell county, Kentucky, in 1855, a son of Raleigh D. Bartlow, whose birth occurred in Campbell county, Kentucky.  Having arrived at years of maturity, the father married Miss Elizabeth Carmack and afterward removed to Brown county, Kansas.  His wife died in 1861, but he long survived her, passing away in March, 1897, at the age of seventy-seven years.

Politically he was a Republican and in his religious belief was a Methodist, long connected with a church of that denomination.  In his family were six children, namely: Granville M., Minerva, Mildred, Eliza, Oliver M. and Sarah. Upon the old home farm the subject of this review was reared, and through the summer months he assisted in the work of the fields, while after the crops were harvested in the autumn he pursued his education in the district schools of the neighborhood.

At the age of twenty-two years he married, at Pierce Junction, Brown county, Kansas, Miss Anna Fowler, a native of Ohio and a daughter of J. Fowler, who died in the Buckeye state.  Three children have graced their union, namely: Oliver Tabner, George C. and Goldie M. 

Since 1886 Mr. Bartlow has engaged in the livery business in Horton. He keeps a large line of stylish turnouts and a stable of good horses.  His wide experience in business, together with his energy, courteous manner and well known reliability have made his livery stable popular with many and he is justly recognized as one of the most enterprising business men of the city.

He exercises his right of franchise in support of the men and measures of the Republican party, keeps well informed on the issues of the day and is very earnest in his advocacy of the principles of his party.  He is also a valued member of the Modern Woodmen's society.
