David married Elizabeth Cox, daughter of Philip Cox and Jemima Taylor.

My earliest finding of my Bartons is a Joshua F. Barton B. about 1820 in SC. He was married to a Catherine ? b. about 1822; SC.  According the 1860 Gordon Co. census, their children were:

  1. William S.
  2. James B.
  3. Mary A.
  4. Isaac N.
  5. David C.
  6. Oliver W.

Most are buried in Gordon Co., as well. I am descended through David C. b. 11 Dec 1855, md. 30 Mar 1884 to Mary Frances Dillard. He died 4 Dec 1921. David and Mary Frances had the following children:

  1. Mary L.
  2. Samuel E.
  3. Emma L.
  4. John F.
  5. Mandy C.
  6. Maggie R.
