PIONEER BARTON FAMILY


1. THOMAS PETER BARTON, my oldest known ancestor was born 3 July 1805 in Dutchess Co., NY, died 7 Dec 1870 in Erie Co., PA. I have been unable to find out who Thomas's parents were. In the book "The Calkins Family Manuscript" by Mrs. Turney Sharps, it stated that Thomas was born in Dutchess Co., NY in 1805 and was also married there in 1826. Family bible records which came to light a few years ago state that Thomas was married 28 Apr 1825 in Oswego Co., NY to RHODA N. CALKINS. Both THOMAS PETER and RHODA N. Calkins BARTON were buried at Phillipsville Cemetery in Erie Co., PA. The dates on the headstone support their birth and death dates. I also have obituaries for Thomas and Rhoda from the Erie Morning Dispatch, Erie Co., PA.

Thomas and Rhoda are found listed on the 1830 Census of Jefferson Co., NY. Further research at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah has not revealed any paper trail for them in Jefferson or Oswego Co., NY. Rhoda had most of her family living in the Jefferson/Oswego County area at that time.

Thomas and Rhoda are next found listed on the 1840 and 1850 Census of Trenton Villiage, Oneida Co., NY where the remainder of their children were born. One child , Lewis King BARTON died there 3 Oct 1841. There are some deed records on Thomas in Onieda County.

Thomas and Rhoda then migrated to Green Twp., Erie Co., PA before 1860 and settled there. Many of Rhoda's siblings lived there then moved on to Michigan or Wisconsin.

He married 28 Apr 1825 in Richland, Oswego Co., NY

RHODA N. CALKINS b. 12 Sep 1809 in Coburg, Ontario, Canada, d. 29 Jul 1880 in Erie Co., PA. daughter of SALMON CALKINS and EUNICE RICHARDSON.

12. FRANKLIN HENRY P. BARTON, son of THOMAS PETER BARTON & RHODA N. CALKINS, was born 30 Sep 1847 in Trenton, Oneida Co., NY. He was my gg grandfather and 11th child of THOMAS PETER BARTON and RHODA N. CALKINS. HENRY enlisted in the Civil War in Company K, 11th Michigan Infantry. Unfortunately the person who was in charge of signing HENRY up told him and others that they could have a furlough to go home and see their families before reporting for duty. HENRY and these men later found out this was not true and many left to go see their families anyway. This resulted in a Court Marshall for HENRY but upon having his trial, the truth came out and all charges were dropped against him. He never made it home to see his family until after he was discharged. Why he was in Wisconsin when he married Louvisa CLINGENSMITH is unknown to me. He and Louvisa made it back to Erie Co., PA and had their first child there then to Guthrie Co., Iowa where their second child was born. They then migrated to Fayette Co., Ohio where the last two children were born. They eventually migrated to McDonald Co., Missouri where the family set up house and it was also where Louvisa died. HENRY went to Los Angeles Co., California and re-married to Tennie BISSET and lived his life out there.

He died 24 Jul 1940 in Los Angeles Co., CA, and was buried Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery, Los Angeles, CA.

He married (1) 10 Oct 1868 in Sauk Co., WI LOUVISA CLINGENSMITH, daughter of Philip CLINGENSMITH and Pleasy WOODS, who was born 1846 in Morgan Co., OH, and died. 9 Nov 1920 in Newton Co., Missouri, buried in Howard Cemetery, McDonald Co., Missouri. HENRY and LOUVISA migrated to Fayette Co., Ohio, Guthrie Co., Iowa, McDonald Co., Missouri where Louvisa died, then finally to Los Angeles Co., CA where HENRY died.
