From:  Jerry

I'm looking for a Robert W. (Watson) Barton in Perry Co. He had a son James Watson Barton b. 1873 in Perry Co.   Robert b. 1821 in AL. was married to a Martha C. Shaffer b.1828 in AL.  


From Debby:


According to my hard copy notes, I have the following:

David Barton, son of Thomas and Bethire (Williamson) Barton md. Nancy Rutherford.  Two of their children were:

  1. Robert Watson Barton who md. Martha and had:
  2. Thomas R.{Rutherford?}Barton who md. Susan Mahulda Thomas and had:

I regret to say, I don't know where I got this information...possibly from one of the Barton Bulletins.  As I continue to study my notes, I find a reference to the will of David Barton and other data in the Reunion Edition of the 1975 Barton Bulletin.  

From another source I show the following children for David and Bethire:

  1. Irene who md. Samuel G. McLaughlin
  2. Elizabeth Elmira (b. Caldwell Co., KY) md. David Cammack.  
  3. Charlott Ann who md. Vincent Sanders
  4. Nancy Carolina (b. 1816 in Caldwell Co., KY/d. 1839 in Perry Co., AL) md. (1) William Stewart and (2) Anderson Flinn  
  5. Celia Ann Minerva who md. John McKee
  6. Thomas R. who moved to Anderson Co., TX.  He md. Susan Mahillda Thomas.
  7. Robert Watson
  8. Margaret E. (b. 188809; Greenville, SC) who md. a Saunders

I don't know how accurate any of this information is, but perhaps this will give you some clues for your continuing search. Others from the Thomas Barton clan have contributed to this web site.  Some of their information conflicts with a number of  Thomas Barton family trees I've studied.  Perhaps all of you descendants can do some investigating to pin down the facts, then let me know so I can make corrections to the data.  To review the biggest contribution to the Thomas Barton clan on this site, see Stafford County, Virginia.  Also, Prince William County, Virginia has a good summary of the ancestral Thomases.
