I am looking for Enoch Joshua BARTON (Jr.) and his family. Enoch was the son of Enoch Joshua Barton born in Edgefield County, SC. This is what I know:
Enoch was born 1850 in either Randolph or Chambers County, AL. He married M.C. ________ (maiden name unknown). She is listed on one census record as Catherine, on the death record as Mrs. Barton, on her headstone has M.C. and on her daughter's medical records as Cassandra. Several great aunt and uncles say her maiden name was WATWOOD. I have not found documented proof of this.
They had the following children:
M.C., their mother died when Frank was 3 months old.
Enoch (Jr.) also know as "Babe" was a Justice of the Peace in Randolph County, AL.
