The name of your first known ancestor: Thomas Barton
Where was your ancestor born?: England
There was a question on your site="Which Thomas was Hugh Barton's father. All I know is he married Hannah Clark , Queens, NY about 1736 Also, my g-g-grandfather, Henry Cook Barton (1832 - 1911) was not mentioned. He is not the Henry C Barton mentioned. I have an 1849 daguarreotype of him and matched 1858 portraits of him and wife Emma Goodloe by Wikkiam Frye. I have more info on dates and places, but I don't know what would be helpful.
