ADOLPHUS WARE HARLOW, a farmer and a Confederate veteran of the Civil War, was born March 19, 1832, in Nelson Co., Virginia, son of Nicholas Harlow and Jeanetta Bridgwater. He was brought as an infant from Virginia to Cooper Co., Missouri, with his parents, and then to Hopkins Co., Texas, in 1846. He resided in Hopkins County the remainder of his life "except 4 yrs". Adolphus was married May 8, 1858, in Hopkins County to Mary Fanning, who was born August 7, 1841, in Mississippi, daughter of John and Matilda Fanning.

Adolphus joined the Confederate Army during the Civil War and served as a sergeant for three years in Company C of Baylor's Texas Cavalry. After the war, Adolphus settled and improved 160 acres of farm land in Hopkins County. He received his land patent from the government on July 10, 1873.

When Adolphus applied for his pension on April 5, 1902, at the age of 70, he was blind and had rheumatism. He owned a lot in the town of Como valued at $500.00, a horse worth $30.00, a cow worth $20.00, and community interest in lien notes of $500.00.
