I was wondering how Capt. John Barton fit into your family. He lived in Franklin County, Georgia. He was a Revolutionary soldier and is said to be buried in South Carolina. His wife was Rhoda _____ and he had three sons, ie, John, Jr., William, and Lewis according to Bible records. Capt. John served in the Georgia Legislature from Franklin Co. Any help would be appreciated.             Ben Barton
