Keith - 09/22/00

My William Barton was born about 1800 in North Carolina, I believe in Orange Co. He died 1860 in Fayette Co. In 1843 he gave his portion of his deceased father's land (John Barton of Orange Co.,) to Lemuel Carroll, whom I believe to be Williams' brother in law. I believe William married Sarah Carroll. So, I think John Barton is my gggg grandfather. Believe he married Nelly Thompson in 1793. John may have had brothers James and Thomas Barton of Orange Co. I would think someone has encountered this line and can link me up. I have extensive Barton lineage from William Barton and willing to share information with my fellow cousins.
