I am looking for my g-grandfather Thomas Barton who married Fanny Minor. They had 3 sons, Buford, Mose and William. Buford is my g-father and he married Susie Ann Lonnie Little. Fanny died and Thomas remarried and had 4 more children, Jim, Myrtle, Amanda and Nora. I know that Myrtle married a Higgenbottom, Amanda married a Russell, and Nora married a Starnes. If anyone has info on this family please email me at kovach at flash.net.
