Husband’s Notes...

Here is the oath that was in the provost marshall papers:


I, Daniel Barton, County of Shelby State of Mo., do solemnly swear that I will Support, Protect, and Defend the Constitution and Government of the United States, against all enemies, whether domestic or foreign; that I will bear True Faith, Allegiance, and Loyalty to the same, any ordinance, resolution, or law of any State, convention, or legislature to the contrary notwithstanding; and, further, that I will well and faithfully perform all the duties which may be required of me by the laws of the United States; and I take this Oath freely and voluntarily, without any mental reservation or evasion whatsoever, with a full and clear understanding that death or other punishment, by the judgment of a military commission, will be the penalty for the violation of this my solemn oath and parole of honor.

Daniel Barton (his signature)

Subscribed and Sworn before me this 28 day of April 1865 at Camp Douglas, Chicago, Ill.
R.P. Phurly [Hard to read so this might not be correct.]
Capt. ? aaagut [That’s what it looks like to me.]

The above mentioned has Brown Eyes, Black Hair, is 43 Years of Age, and is 5 Feet 10 Inches high.


The Daniel Barton...who was killed in the Civil War...this is a post civil war matt and the portrait is clearly a late 1840s to early 1850s original. someone has had a copy made as a memorial portrait after the civil war. His hair over the ear, his 'spooner' beard and vest with cravat are all ear marks of that period. The image is fading rapidly and should be immediately preserved. The setting agent may have been egg white, which is organic and can cause loss of the contrast. You need to have professional negative made of this one, 70mm if you can get it. Take it to a studio and wait there while they do it. Don't leave the photo. If you cant' find a place to do it, let me know. I will try to do it for you if I can get into your area. There are ways to restore these so you can actually see his face again. One of your Sam Barton pictures is in a similar state.

Shelby Co.: DANIEL WEEDEN BARTON buried Bacon Chapel Church, Lentener, Missouri. b. 25 Oct 1825 d. 31 May 1865 Was a Sergeant in Co. G 1st Northeast Missouri Cavalry. Taken from his home and killed by the militia. A brother to Elias. ®346

Daniel was killed after the Civil War at the age of 39 years by carpetbaggers. ®107

I have a copy of a letter from Addie Barton that says, "these are the copies I got when down at Daniel Butners. I thought mabe you would like to have it." Here is what she sent about Daniel Barton:

"Daniel Weeden Barton son of Squire and Rachel Barton, departed this life May 31st A.D. 1865. being taken by a band of Federals Malitia by force of arms and brutaly murdered on the public highway in Macon County [section not readable] from his home in Shelby County, Missouri. he being 32 years. 7 and 9 days of age at the time of his death."

From Barton Family Register Report by David Barton:

"Daniel Barton was a sergeant in Co. G 1st NE MO Cavlary. He returned home on leave to heal from wounds where he was taken from his home and killed by the Union miltia. Served with brother Morgan P. in same Confederate unit."

Military: Was a sergeant in Co. G 1st Northeast MO Cavalry. 1st NE MO Cavalry CSA also known simply as Porters Regiment. Regiment was commanded by Col. Joseph C. Porter, Lt. Col. William C. Blanton, and Maj. Elliott D. Majors. It was recruited in north east Missouri and it operated primarily in north central Missouri. Its guerilla-like strikes were very effective against the Federals. Engagements were it saw action were: Memphis (MO), Vassar Hill, Moore's Mill, Kirksville, Florida, Santa Fe (MO). "...Porter's men had marched 500 miles in fifteen days, capturing two towns, fought four battles, two against superior numbrs, paroled a hundred prisoners, conducted extensive scouting, patrolling, and recruiting operations, and tied down and confused Federal forces many times their size -- all of this accomplished by mostly teenage boys with no military training." (Blue & Gray Magazine, March 2000 issue, article entitled: "Porter in North Missouri")

Note: Send for probate record dated 1865.

We understand that on Wednesday of last week a squad of militia from Macon County arrested Daniel Barton of Shelby county: and the next day, while on their return with him to Macon City they shot him. He had but recently returned home from a long imprisonment in the military prison at Chicago. We understand that those who killed him charged him with being an accomplice of some bushwackers who had lately made a raid through that section of the county. He was some 40 years of age and leaves a wife and 11 children. PARIS MERCURY June 9

An Awful Calamity.

The residence of Mrs. Sarah Barton, about two miles southwest of Maud in this county, burned last Friday night and her two unfortunate boys Elijah and Elias, aged 43 years were consumed in it, they were twins and without mind, but men in every other respect. For 43 years they have had the constant care of one of the best of mothers. She had been called to Moberly to see her daughter, Mrs. Archie Wood, who is sick and with Mrs. Rebecca Barr, her sister had gotten there Friday evening. Andrew the son who runs the farm, and unmarried had put the boys to bed, they always remained there until they were taken up in the morning, and went a mile away to church at the Liberty school house, before the meeting closed the light of the burning house was seen and men hurried there but were too late to save the boys as the kitchen was falling in. The fire had evidently taken from the flew, and the bedroom the boys occupied was so full of fire that when a window was opened to relieve them the fire came through so that nothing could be done, the remains were found where the bed stood, except one of them had evidently turned with his head to the foot of the bed.

Their remains were taken and buried at Union church. Andrew is almost crazed with grief, and the mother with faith and fortitude, unequaled almost, bears it with remarkable strength and composure. Mrs. Barton is 75 years of age and had twelve children. Her husband Daniel W. Barton was shot by the soldiers at the close of the war, he had been released from Alton by the U. S. authorities, and returned home and was visiting at his fathers a few miles west of where he lived and was taken by some soldiers but before they reached Macon City he was shot.

The children were all taken care of by the mother and raised to manhood and womanhood except one daughter. Talk of heroines or heroes; who has fought life's terrible battle more bravely than Mrs. Barton? Her friends ought to build her a house and help furnish it. Every man that admires the grand and worthy in our race will help in the good work.

There is another small house on the farm that she will occupy in a short time. Her sons all live in other states except one here Taylor, and the one at home, and one daughter in Moberly and one in Lamar, MO. Her brothers, P. G. and Jacob McBroom live in Oregon, and two sisters in this county, Mrs. Barr and Mrs. Barton. She has been a member of the Methodist church for many years. There was no insurance.

I was looking through this really old tall thin book...ledger, I think. It was packed in Mae Barton Holland's trunk and stored for over 50 years. The cover and first few pages are in pieces. It had a couple of recipes of sorts and then what looked like blank pages. So I started in the back and there are several recipes and remedies for things like croupe and diptheria. I then came to more blank pages but kept going. Toward the middle of the book in very beautiful handwriting is a list of children and birthdates of children of Daniel Weeden Barton, and of him and his wife. Believe journal dates to 1800s as there is a place to put date and has the number 18__.
