From the Jerseyville Republican, 1921:

Funeral services over the remains of Charles Henry Barton, who was killed near White Hall, were held in the home on West Bridgeport street, White Hall, at 10 o'clock Tuesday. The discourse was delivered by Rev. Charles M. Ross, pastor of the Christian church and the singing was by the Duncan sisters. There was a large attendance, and the profusion of floral offerings gave further testimony of the esteem in which the man was held. The remains were conveyed to the Belt cemetery in Jersey County, eight miles west of Jerseyville.

The deceased was engaged in railroad track work at White Hall and Roodhouse in recent months. On the 3rd inst. while engaged in unloading ties in the yards at Roodhouse a tie struck him on the head. The injury was so serious that he was rushed to Passavant hospital in Jacksonville by special train, and there he died at 3 am Saturday. The remains were brought to White Hall Saturday afternoon. He was 49 years of age on July 26th last, and was born on Cal Beech's place west of Jerseyville, eldest son of the late William H. and Cornelia Barton, long residents of Otterville. He had been making his home with his son Earl in White Hall since July 1st, last. The widow and two sons survive.

The aged mother, one brother and six sisters survive, the brother and sisters being as follows: William H. of Granite City; Mrs. R C Hill, Alton; Mrs. A. E. White, Jerseyville; Mrs. A. L. Snow, Pittsburgh, PA; Mrs. H G Bertran, Granite City; Miss Clara Barton, Mrs. T S Lockhart, New York City. George T. Barton of Grafton is an uncle.
