Septemus (Septamus) Barton was born 3-6-1825 in Henry County, Ga. and died in Quitman County Ga. on 3-18-1907. He was married to Elizabeth Burke. She was born on 4-24-1828 and died 1-31-1905. They had one son who was William Jasper Barton born 1851 in Georgia. One Daughter Martha Barton no data available. Septamus Barton served in the Civil War in Company F, 61st Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, Evans Brigade, Gordons Division, Army of Northern Virginia, C.S.A. Quitman County Georgia "Stark Guards" "Wiregrass Rifles" (originally Co. F, 7th Battalion Georgia Infantry) Septamus was listed as a Private on Aug. 15, 1861 and surrendered at Appomattox, Va. April 9, 1865. I have not been able to trace the parents of Septamus. Possibly John or William Barton of Henry County Ga. Any Information would be appreciated.

My family comes from Hall, Henry, Randolph and Quitman counties in Georgia.  My great great grandfather is Septimus Barton b.3-6-1825 in Henry county. d 3-18-1907 married Betty Elizabeth Harrell b 4-24-1828 d. 1-31-1905 in Ga.  They had three children:

  1. William Jasper
  2. Martha Burnett
  3. Mary who died young in a farming accident.

We are looking for Septimus parents. The story goes that Septimus father came with other brothers from either, Scotland, Wales or Ireland. There were said to have been 9 brothers who came.  Three went west, three in Mass. and the rest to the South. We have not been able to connect up the brothers.

I do know from my grandfather, Clayton Barton, said that Septum's father married a Harden and the mother was related to the Castleberrys. I found John Barton married Patsy Hardin in 1806 and William Barton married Betsy Hardin but have no date. The parents of these girls were Valentine Hardin and Margaret Castleberry. This leads me to believe that William is somehow Septimus father.  Septimus brothers are:

  1. William
  2. Andrew
  3. Marion
  4. Mark
  5. John.

We know there are more but do not know who they are.   William H. is thought to be Septimus brother since he lived by him on the same road. There is a 15 year span in their ages which I gather is not all that uncommon in those times. There was supposed to have been anywhere from 9 to11 brothers.

Septemus Barton had a son named William Jasper Barton.

William Jasper Barton married Margaret Smith.  I do not have any further information about birth/death/marriage.

  4. Ross Barton (d. 1989 in Wooster, Ohio)
  5. Eason Barton (d. in Quitman County, GA)
  6. Ruby Barton (d. in Montgomery, AL)
  7. Lulabelle Barton (d. in Eufala, AL)
  8. Bess Barton
  9. Mamie (Margaret?) Barton
  10. Clayton Burke Barton (b. Oct 25 in Quitman County, GA, 1896, d. Feb 4, 1982 in Quitman County, GA)
