I am researching Enoch J. Barton born 31 Dec 1819 in Edgefield, South Carolina. Family stories says that his mother died and his father remarried and he didn't get along with his step-mother so he ran away from home around the age of 15. I don't know if he left by himself or other family members went with him. In 1837, in the Orphans Court in Chambers County, Alabama he had himself declared an Orphan in order to marry because he was under the legal age--he was 18 years old. He married in 1837 to Rebecca Jane Meacham (daughter of John and Leah Meacham) in Chambers County, AL and is listed on the 1840 census there. In 1850 and 1860 he was in Rock Mills, Randolph County, Alabama. He served in the Civil War in Company E, 17th. Regiment, Alabama Infantry as a Private. After Rebecca died he married Martha Caroline _________ (maiden name unknown). He died in 1896 in Rock Mills, Randolph County, AL. I would really appreciate any information on his parents, siblings, and descendants.
