Houston Barton (b. AL 8 Oct 1855; AL/d. 9 Oct, 1935, pl. Ninnikah, Grady Co., Okla. buried, Ninnikah Cemetery. ) His occupation was a farmer.  
Md. Nov. 19 Nov. 1888 in Groesbeck, Limestone Co., TX to Ellen Francis Wood (b. 6 March 1866; Limestone Co., TX/d. 15 July 1941, Chickasha, Grady Co., OK)   Ellen's father: Eli Newton Wood; Ellen's mother: Elizabeth J. ____.  
In 1900, Houston & Ellen were living in Limestone Co., Texas (*Texas 1900 census records).  In 1910, they were living in Jones Co., Texas (*Texas 1910 census records).  By 1920, they were living in Lucille, Grady Co., Oklahoma (*1920 Okla. census records). I'm thinking they moved to Grady Co., Okla. around 1915 because my grandfather, Herbert Barton and his brother Lenard Barton, went to France during WWI in 1917.

Descendants of Moses Barton:

In Texas, 1870, Falls Co. page 112B is: Mullins Brutus 70 M W Farm Labor $200 South Carolina; Rebecca 55 F W Keeping House Tennessee; Sacramento 12 F W Attending School
Alabama; Sam 37 M W Farm Labor Georgia. Census errors here are Burgess being called "Brutus" and Samantha being called "Sacramento". Sam was Burgess and his first wife's oldest son who had been wounded during the Civil War and, according to family legend, Samantha Pocahontas, his little half-sister, helped nurse him back to health.

Samantha Pocahontas (known as Aunt Poke by her kin) married Hyman Quentin "Hi" BYRD 1877 in Limestone County, Texas (next to Falls Co., where Burgess and Rebecca were enumerated in 1870 [1880?]).
