The name of your first known ancestor: James Obed Barton

Looking for info on my grandfather: James Obed Barton. He was married to Martha (Mattie) Jane Bannister and had the following children:

Lloyd, Clara, Joe Claude, Robert, Mildred Lavonia, Julia Louella, Eunice Urcilia, Bertha, Clara and one child that died in infancy. They are from Georgia, around the Henry County area, I think. James Obed died approximately late 1920's or early 1930's.
