My great-grandfather was Benjamin Barton a/k/a Dick Barton. He was born in Arkansas in January, 1858. He married my great-grandma Lizzie Sprall, she was born in Ohio, May 1862, both of her parents were from Germany - I do not know their names. They had four children (I am quite sure they were all born in Ft. Smith, Sebastian County, Arkansas - definitely in Arkansas):

Pearl Barton - daughter born in Aug. 1887
Hutten Barton - son born in January 1890
Allie Barton - daughter born on April 9, 1892 (my Grandmother)
Myrtle Barton - daughter born April 1897

My grandmother, Allie Barton, married my grandfather, Walter Earl Lane (also born in Ft. Smith, Arkansas on February 28, 1884).
