Dear Linda,

The information below is all that I was able to read on gravestones in the Bristow Cemetery at Upchurch. I think this will shed some light on your side of the family. According to my encyclopedia Benjamin Helm Bristow was born in 1832, so I suspect that he was a nephew of Benjamin Thomas Bristow and was probably named for him.

I am sorry that some of the information is missing but the gravestones are very old and faded. There are many other stones in this old cemetery, but I was unable to read any others.

You might contact Mrs. George B. Long

She is Bertie Bow, a daughter of Prentice Marshall Bristow. She has done quite a bit of research into the Bristow family.
