[Is any one familiar with a story that there was some kind of epedimic in MS (ie, typhoid) which is why so many died on the way.  Also, it seems like these Murray/Hall Co., GA Bartons were the ones who lost a great many personal effects plus the family Bible when a raft went under water on the Mississippi River???]

... William Reid (not William REED aka "Silver Billy) was my direct ancestor through his son, Reuben. Two of Reuben's children married Bartons in Rusk County, Texas -- children of J. Benjamin Barton and Zilpha Baker. J. Benjamin's parents were Benjamin Barton and Dorcas Anderson.

They didn't come to Texas, however, until about 1840. Mine came here in the mid to late '40s... is looking for information on ROBERT MARION BARTON  (b. 1882/d. 1958).  He is buried in Pirtle Cem., Rusk Co. TX.  Md. Dacie Bell (b. 1898/d. 1925).
