The dates of death for Robert Withrow AND his wife, Jane Withrow are the same.
Excerpt from The History of Summers Co., WV: The ancient family of Withrow is connected with the first settlement of the Green Sulfur and Lick Creek regions. Robert Withrow, the founder of the family, was born near Yorktown, in Virginia (or Pennsylvania) and was a boy at the time of the fight of Yorktown and the surrender of Cornwallis, which terminated the revolutionary war of '76. He related his recollections of that famous battle, hearing the cannons booming and seeing the marching of the French and English and American soldiers. His father's name was William Withrow, an immigrant from Scotland, and was of Scotch-Irish-Welsh descent. The family has more or less always been noted for the contrariness of the various members, which is attributed to this mixture of ancient blood.
Robert Withrow appears in in the 1850 United States Federal Census
as an illiterate 79-year-old farmer with $500 in real property living with his illiterate wife, Jane.
