William and Sarah (Schamp) Barklow did not have issue of their own. There were, however, two bequests in his will to others, whose relationships are unknown, if any. William, after bequeathing "all real and personal property to his wife, Sarah", goes on to mention small bequests "to Margaret Smith", and "Sarah Poust, the present young woman who lives with me." Sarah Poust was likely a domestic. William Barklow was only about 57 or 58 years old at the time of his death. His spouse, Sarah, lived another 16 years. One of the witnesses to William Barklow's will was Samuel Morris, believed to be married to a sister of William and Cornelius. In Cornelius Bartlow's 1832 application for a pension based upon his service in the Revolution, he alludes to a record of his birth in his father's bible located "at the home of Samuel Morris". Daughters were often recipients of the family bibles. That particular bible would be a gold mine of documentary data and corroborating evidence of deductions made regarding the brothers, William and Cornelius, and any additional siblings. It would also tend to isolate, by process of elimination, all children of brothers, William Barkelow(c1728-p1791) and Barnet Barkelow(1730-1800).NOTE- Sarah Schamp was the sister of Catharine Jane Schamp, who married William Barklow's brother, Cornelius Bartlow(1760-1833).
