Phines Marlow was born March 15, 1818 on Brushy Mountains of Wilkes County, NC to James Marlow Jr. and Peggy Davis somewhere around and near where Liberty Church now stands.

Phines Marlow's Grandfather, James Marlow Sr. deeded James Marlow Jr on Feb 15, 1812 a tract of 146 acres on the White Oak Fork of Rocky Creek which at this time was in Iredell Co NC. In 1815 the county line changed and this land was taken into Wilkes County.

Grace Fletcher Home

Phines lived on Brushy Mtn. road about quarter-mile north of the Liberty Church where Grace Hayes Fletcher's home was located. In mid-1950's, I, (Don Hayes) was at Grace Fletchers, an aunt of mine (Don Hayes). Grace, Jeter (Jet) Hayes a brother, and wife, Dora Mae,
were all at a small bridge close to the main road and they pointed out a spring they said was called the (Phines Marlow Spring). This is probably close to where he and his family lived, and the spring was more than likely on his land and the family used it.
