Possible Fowler/Barton Connection
Date: Thu, 14 May 1998 From: Lee firstname.lastname@example.org
Rumors handed down thru several lines of Fowlers has it that we were originally Bartons and were adopted by a Fowler family. James Fowler b. 1797 in SC migrated to GA in early 1820's. Also brother William and possible brother Thomas (no proof). Several Fowler descendants have the given name Barton, which leads credence to the rumor. During my research I have met very distant cousins who were told the same thing. I cannot link James Fowler to any of the Fowler lines in SC. He stopped for a while in Hall County, GA (as did a number of Barton families) before settling in Forsyth/Cherokee Counties GA.
Has anyone run across any Barton children being adopted in SC in the early 1800's?
[Lee (above) mentioned on his web page http://fly.hiwaay.net/~lfowler/family01/i0000207.htm#i207 that James, Sarah and daughter Jane were living in Habersham Co. during the 1830 census.]
