I am only assuming that Henderson is the son of Henry C. Barton because Henry C. had a son that would have been the correct age of Henderson in the 1830 census. Henderson married in 1839 and in the poorly written marriage record it mentions mother, Martha Henderson, as giving permission for the marriage.

Henderson married Matilda Fortner of Blount Co. She died between 1854 and 1860. By 1860 Henderson lived in Poinsette Co. AR, then by 1870 he lived in Clark Co. AR and had remarried. I knew he disappeared from the AR census in 1880. I was contacted about a year ago by a descendant of one of Henderson's children by his 2nd wife who stated Henderson died in Indian Territory after 1880, which is now McCurtain Co. OK.

As for Henry C. Barton, I would love to find info that could connect him to Henderson.

The following is my research. It probably contains a lot of the same info as others have found but may be put together with a little different reasoning. I believe Elizabeth Barton Hartgraves to be the daughter of Henry Caldwell Barton for the following reasons:

female 0-10 (born btwn 1800-1810, Elizabeth was born abt 1808)

1850 U.S. Census Tippah Co., MS 2 1183

William and Benjamin are R. P.'s two sons by Polly WILSON. They are William J. and Benjamin S. HARRISON. Robert P. HARRISON apparently moved around a lot.  It looks as if he was in Texas many years before moving his family to Texas. Even though he is on the 1850 census for Tippah County, he appears in some records in Texas in the 1840's. After moving his family to Texas, Catherine died in 1859 at Brazoria County.  In October of 1860 R. P. married the widow Anna HUBBARD HOWE. She was the widow of Edward Percy HOWE.  A descendedent of Anna HUBBARD HOWE currently living in Blanco county on the old R. P. HARRISON place has some diaries that were kept by a daughter of Anna H.  HOWE. It appears that R. P. HARRISON and Catherine were friends of the HOWE's from back when the HOWE's were living in Yabalousha County, MS.  Edward was a newspaper man and had moved his operation to Texas except that the ship they were traveling on got into some trouble at Indianola, TX and was scuttled, the printing press being lost. Seems about 10 or 15 years ago some archeologists found that scuttled ship's remains including the old printing press.

Catherine BARTON Obituary:

Mrs. Catherine Harrison died at the residence of her husband, R. P. Harrison, in Columbia, Brazoria Co., on the 30th ult., of congetive chill.   She was the daughter of H. C. and Rebecca Barton, born in Jefferson Co.,    Alabama on Oct. 10, 1819, married November, 1836 and joined the M. E. Church, South in 1845. She and her husband came to Texas in 1845, resided at various places in the State. Left husband and large family of young  children, some too young to know their loss. P. V. H., Columbia, Aug. 9, 1859.   [Texas Christian Advocate, Aug. 1859, Vol. VI, No. 3]

My grandfather was named William Barton Walker.  His father was Japheth Walker often mispronouced Jeptha.  He was born in Pontotoc County Missisippi.  I noticed your Jeptha had a son named Walker.  Do you know how the Walker name connects?   I can't figure out where the Barton name connects.
