Message from Joe Black:

No documentation exists either showing conclusively that Enoch Barton was a Son of the former militia Captain who settled in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. No marriage record exists in Hunterdon County demonstrating the purported marriage occurred there. Besides, Grandma Margarat Towar was a Philadelphia resident at the time the marriage occurred. Not only her aged Mother but a goodly number of siblings were in that place as well.
Father: Elisha BARTON b: 5 OCT 1729 in Hunterdon Co. NJ
Mother: Jemima VAN KIRK b: 20 FEB 1736 in Hopewell, Hunterdon Co. NJ

On Sept. 25, 1799 in Flemington, Hunterdon Co, NJ, Enoch Barton married Margaret Towar, born June 4, 1775. They had 10 children:

1. Isabella BARTON b: 30 SEP 1800
2. Gilbert BARTON b: 13 SEP 1801
3. Jemima BARTON b: 21 MAY 1803
4. Charlotte BARTON b: 11 MAR 1805
5. Charles Towar BARTON b: 23 MAR 1807
6. Margaret BARTON b: 7 JUL 1809
7. Rachel BARTON b: 10 MAR 1811
8. Mary Ann BARTON b: 30 MAR 1813

OLD C.P.: Estate of Enoch Barton, deceased.
File 65
Enoch Barton departed this life sometime in the month of Aug 1833, and, about one month thereafter his children and heirs at law, three of them being minors, met and amicably divided the money on hand amounting to the sum of $1135.47 after paying incidental expenses such as funeral expenses etc. giving to each of the seven heirs them living the following sums of money, to wit:

Gilbert Barton, $162.21
Thomas Anderson & wife, 162.21
Charles T. Barton, 162.21
Charlotte Hart, 162.21
Jamime Barton, 162.21
Elisha Barton, 162.21
Margaret Barton, 162.21

All of which said shares were received as above shown by each of said heirs except the three last named, who were minors and whose shares therefore were retained for their use by the above named Gilbert Barton. Afterwards Charles T. Barton and Jemima Barton departed this life and also afterwards other claims having been discovered as due to estate and the surviving heirs becoming fearful that large claims would come against the estate, and unhappily difficulties and disagreements having arisen amongst themselves in relation to said estate, John Ross at the Nov. term of this court for the year 1834 was appointed administrator thereof and he accordingly took upon himself the discharge of his duties as such and therefore all of the adult surviving heirs, except Gilbert Barton, gave to said administrator written acknowledgements that they had each received the sums above specified, and that they withhold the same subject to the order of said. administrator for the payments of descendants debts etc, but the said Gilbert utterly refusing in any manner to account either for his own share, or the shares of said minors, the administrator brought suit against him for the recovery thereof, which was finally appealed to the Supreme Court; and said Supreme Court determined that adult Heirs might amicably settle the estate of their deceased ancestor, but that minors could not consent thereto, nor be bound by such settlement; and therefore, rendered judgement against the said Gilbert for the shares of three minor Heirs with interest, amounting to the sum of $550.00 at the same time permitting him to retain his own share subject to any debts that might thereafter arise, or be presented against the estate. This judgement was rendered at the May Term of said Supreme Court in the year 1836. The administrator, therefore, in stating his account, to make all of said Heirs equal, must state it in the following names:

John Ross--Administrator of Estate of Enoch Barton deceased in account current with the estate of decedent:-
