Many Bartons resided in Laurens Co., SC before the first census was taken.  Among them were James, Joseph and Bavester. Some of these early Laurens Bartons eventually moved to Pendleton District, SC.   Bavester left Pendleton and migrated to Warren Co., Kentucky.

The following is an excerpt from an interesting off site resource about the McCrary's of Duncan Creek

From the "Statistics of South Carolina" by Robert Mills published in 1826, the first settlers [of Duncan's Creek] were named "M'Crery, Green, Hannah, Abernathy, Miller, Beard, King, Mitchell, Coffee, Gisham, Barton, Young, McClure, Adams and M'Daid."

Many of the early Laurens settlers were Scotch-Irish.
