Mary Ann Barton b. 1/23/1834; Jasper, Alabama ?   She is my great/great/great grandmother. She married a John Abner Dill, this old goat went off to the civil war & instead of coming home he married several times without benefit of divorce.   Leaving Mary to fend for herself and the kids. She was living in Bullard, Texas. her daughter Martha Ann Dill married WW Davis in the Bullard, Texas area they had
1. William L. Davis who married Ellen Smith they had 7 children
      a.  Bently Davis married Ruth Spivey and had 3 children
           (1.)  Martha L. Davis married Eddie Hemphill they had a child Martha R.(me) Hemphill who married Clyde                      Moorehead.
2. Emmett Davis
3. Tishe Lou Davis.

My grandmother lived in the house with Martha Ann Dill/Davis, she said that grandma Davis would allow no one to speak of her father after the way he had ran off and left her mom. Little is known about Mary Ann Barton the birth date has been passed down from Martha Ann Dill/Davis to her son & wife then his son & wife to my mother to me. Someone doing the family history had Mary Barton in a family but could not prove it. The woman said that it was the only family in the area that would have a child that age. I don't understand. I just know that we haven't been able to find her located anywhere in a family prior to her marriage in Walker Co. Alabama. I am new to this. Any ideas or input would be greatly appreciated. Martha R.

I have found your site and was wondering if we might have a connection, both of my great grandparents came from Alabama, I have the Hovater side back to the 1600's but what I have came up with on my great grandfather John Thomas Jefferson Willis side has been nothing but his birth feb 19 1874 and death date dec 31 1945, I do not have his parents names or any sibling names, I had always heard that he was raised by an uncle. If you can help me out any let me know.

In the 1860 census Moses is a farmer and in the 1870 he is a miller, but he is still listed as being born in Al. I would like to know who his parents were?? I think it was John Mason Barton. I have no proof, but he had a son born about the same time as my Moses Barton was born and his son was also Moses. I would appreciate any information. Thank you.

[According to the annotated 1800 Census of Pendleton District, South Carolina, (a review book) Mary md. a Mr. Nations.  There are numerous marriages between the Bartons, Murphrees and Nations families.]
