Frank has a Comsoft III prepared document that shows John Barton b. 1770 in Va. and Holly b. 1770 in SC as the parents of Henry. He would welcome refuting or supporting evidence/comments.

From: Davie Williams    davie@gte.net

I descend from Mary Holly (Barton) Hicks.  She  was first listed in the 1840 census married to Henry W. Hicks. They were a young married couple in their early 20s without any children. I believe, but have not been able to verify, that Mary Holly Barton is the daughter of John Barton and Patsy Hardin Barton of Jackson County, Georgia. Henry W. Hicks was killed in an accident in 1860 and the Administrator of his estate was Eli Hardin, who is probably the brother or uncle of Patsy Hardin Barton. I believe this John Barton is the John Barton that came into Georgia with Isaac Barton and Bayless Nations. I have been in contact with a descendant of Isaac Barton, whose grandfather's name was John Hardin Barton. Also my Henry Hicks and Mary Holly Hicks were living in Floyd County, Georgia and remained there until their deaths. Living in Floyd County are other members of the Hardin family that Paty Hardin Barton belongs to. I also believe that Holly Barton who was living among the Indians just outside of Hall County in 1817 and later moved into Hall County in 1820 is probably the grandmother of my Mary Holly Barton. She is probably the mother of John Barton.


From: Mattie on April , 1999

Mattie wonders if there is a known connection between the Barton brothers, James, Stephen, etc. who moved from Hall Co. to Murray Co., GA and finally to Rusk Co., TX in about 1850 and Benjamin Barton, the son of Benjamin and Dorcas (Anderson) Barton who moved to Rusk Co. in about 1842.

Possible Fowler/Barton Connection

Date: Thu, 14 May 1998    From: Lee    lfowler@hiwaay.net

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 during the 1830 census.  "Jane was born July 13, 1830. Two years later on July 14, 1832, Phillip K. was born. Phillip's birth is recorded as being in Hall County. There were two older daughters, Lette - born in South Carolina in 1818, and Elizabeth - born in Georgia in 1822. This indicates that the Fowlers immigrated to Georgia between those two dates."]

I have been searching for William A. Jackson, my ggrandfather, and his relationship with Tirey Jackson. At one time I read that William A. was cousins of the Barton Family. Do you have anything related to this information? If you do I would appreciate hearing anything as I have reached a deadend......Thanks, Shirley

Thomas Archer Wood was born in 1842. His father was born in Hall Co. and his mother in Jackson Co. I don't know Thomas' birth place, but his brother, George Washington Wood, was born 1845 in Hall County, GA.

Thomas md. (1) Emma Bain, (2) Sarah Ann Barton.


Data from Sylvia:

Thomas was most likely born in Hall County, as the older children were born there also. Don't know anything more about Sarah. I do have this on Thomas: 2LT, 4 AL CAV, Civil War, So they probably married in Alabama.

[Thomas] moved from GA in 1852 to Marshall/Blount (now Etowah) County, AL. In 1869 started west with wagon trains. Homesteaded on Paluxy Creek/River near Bluff Dale (in Hood County?) TX. Many of family are buried at old Rock Church nearby.
