Charleston, South Carolina, March 17, 1791. She was the daughter of
Captain William Lee, born in Ireland, and a Revolutionary War hero. Her

Shortly after the close of the Revolutionary War, Susannah's father and mother moved to Kentucky and then later to the Indiana frontier where she met and married Samuel Kimbrough Barlow in 1820. To this union four sons and two daughters were born. In the spring of 1845, when Susannah was 54 years old, the Barlow family left for the Oregon Territory. They arrived in Oregon City on December 25, 1845. Susannah Lee Barlow died on December 24, 1852.
The Susannah Lee Barlow Chapter was established on April 22, 1918. The first chapter regents were Mrs. E. E. Brodies from March to May, 1918 and Mrs. George A. Harding from 1918-1919.
