Birth: 1784, Scotland

from "The Pioneer History of Camden Township"

LINTON, ADAM, bought his farm from Moses Smith in 1849, the Willie Myers farm. He died Dec. 25, 1859, in his 75th Year.

Mary, his wife, died March 7, 1878, aged 78.

Laura A., their daughter, unmarried, lived in the old home, and was shot, by a mistake Jan. 20, 1890. She was born May 12, 1844.

Homer A., a son, died Sept. 23, 1865, at the age of 24, a soldier.

John Linton, the oldest son, went west.

Arthur Linton, a grandson, lived in the family home, and married Alice Shafer, of Camden.

We are not certain about the rest of the family, but surmise that the wife of William W. Martin, of Camden, was a Linton. Miss Eva Martin and Mrs. Kilburn, of Berlin, were nieces of Laura Linton. Charles Peck, a brother of Hiram, married Miss Linton, of Camden.
