Jasper L. McPhail - 09/15/00
The name of your first known ancestor: David Eli Barton

My great grand mother was Nancy Barton McPhail, wife of William Lewis McPhail of Yalobousha County, MS (after 1852 this is Calhoun County). She was born in 1821 in Alabama in either Madison or Walker County, the daughter of David Eli Barton whose wife was ane _______. She was married to William Lewis McPhail 8-11-1839 and raised seven children, one of whom was John Thomas McPhail, my grandfather. She had a sister named Miley Ann Barton who married Jacob Fox, and a brother Albert Gallatin Barton. They are all buried at the cemetery at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church about 5 miles south of Calhoun City, MS.
