The name of your first known ancestor: Willis Barton
From what State/County did he/she come?: SC
We just returned from a fifty mile trip to Grassy, Lauderdale Co., AL. Grassy is about fifty miles west of Meridianville where we live. We found one Cemetery, Grassy Cemetery of all things. It is on the north side of Alabama H'way 64 next to Grassy Memoria Chapel. We found one very interesting double tomb Stone. It reads Marion H. Barton 1861 - 1937 and Ida Barton 1872 - 1952. Did anyone know Marion H. married again after Mary F. Chamberless Barton died in 4/30/1915? We do not know the Maiden name of Ida Barton. They are the only Bartons in the Cemetery.
