James Hamilton (Uncle Booty) Barrow

James Hamilton Barrow, affectionately known as "Uncle Booty" was born March 27, 1927 to Milas and Ruth Barrow. He spent his childhood in the Austin communities of Wheatsville and Clarksville. James attended Austin Public Schools where he was a student at the Old Anderson High School, located on Pennsylvania Avenue.

James accepted Christ as his personal savior at an early age and attended New Hope Baptist Church. He later moved his membership to Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church. During his later years, he would fellowship with his sister Kathryn at Loyalty Missionary Baptist Church. Even though his health hindered him from attending church on a regular basis he was concerned about his salvation. Through prayer and direction from his nephew Reverend Nathaniel Robinson, he rededicated his life to Christ, "oh what an awesome God we serve, for He restores our souls."

Everyone who had the opportunity to know Uncle James will attest that he was a dependable, loyal worker. He was employed with Superior Dairies until their closing and later retired from the University of Texas at Austin's Facilities Division.

Family meant everything to him because he did not have children of his own, he loved his two sister's (Beatrice and Kathryn) children and always attended every family event possible, Christmas, Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving and Birthdays; and for that, we thank him for being a part of our lives.

"We Love You Uncle"

On the afternoon of June 3, 2011 at 3:30 p.m., a quiet spirit answered God's call. Our hearts are truly hurting. Even though we were not prepared for his swift transition, the family has found solace in knowing he now has the ownership in that perfect peace which God has promised each of His children some day.

Preceding him in death are his parents, two brothers and two sisters and always to remember and cherish his memories a devoted family includes: his faithful and loving sister Kathryn Hilliard; nieces, Katheryn Traylor (James), Minnie Christine Brown, Shaunder G. Johnson, Sylvia A. Williams; nephews, Nathaniel Robinson (Brenda), James Robinson, Leonard Goodrich, Kenneth Robinson, Joseph Goodrich; seventy-five great nieces and great nephews; two God sons whom he raised and considered his very own, Herbert and Cornell Stewart; and a host of family members and friends
