I am looking for the family of my ggfather, James Lewis Barton. According the the family Bible, he was born 12/16/1861 in "Lafait" Co., AL. He married Beulah B. Wilson on 12/31/1893 in Granbury, Hood Co., TX. He died 11/17/1939 in Lubbock, Lubbock Co., TX.

William W. Barton lived in Independence County (Union Township), AR approx. 1870 - 1900 before he and his family moved to Texas in 1900. Children:

Henry David Andrew Barton
Minnie M. Barton
May A. Barton
William C. Barton

According to the 1920 Hood Co. TX Census, William W. and both of his parents were all born in Arkansas. However, one of  his sons thought William W. may have been born in Georgia.

myruel@centurion.flash.net also has a Hood Co. Barton:  Eliza Francis Barton, born June 3, 1852 in Georgia.  Was she the wife of B.A. Barton? [B. A. Barton is mentioned in records at Hood County, TX web site: http://www.genealogy.org/~granbury/index.htm]

Thomas Archer Wood was born in 1842. His father was born in Hall Co. and his mother in Jackson Co. I don't know Thomas' birth place, but his brother, George Washington Wood, was born 1845 in Hall County, GA.

Thomas md. (1) Emma Bain, (2) Sarah Ann Barton.


Data from Sylvia:

Thomas was most likely born in Hall County, as the older children were born there also. Don't know anything more about Sarah. I do have this on Thomas: 2LT, 4 AL CAV, Civil War, So they probably married in Alabama.

[Thomas] moved from GA in 1852 to Marshall/Blount (now Etowah) County, AL. In 1869 started west with wagon trains. Homesteaded on Paluxy Creek/River near Bluff Dale (in Hood County?) TX. Many of family are buried at old Rock Church nearby.
