Charlie H., son of S. and E.A. Borton...

The research for Charlie's family was difficult. Listed below are two census reports based on his probable mother. No other couple with these initials came up during this time period and location.

In the 1880's Census, Eliza A. is listed as E.A. while her husband, Samuel, is listed as S.S. The couple was in Centerville during the time of Charlie's birth, yet they had moved on to Nebraska by the 1880 Census. Samuel was an "implement dealer." This may be another reason for the scarcity of local records for S. and E.A. Borton.

Samuel S. Borton:
b. 18 Jun 1846 in Wayne County, Indiana
d. 8 Aug 1901 in Blue Springs, Gage, Nebraska
m. Elizabeth A. Thomas, 1868
d: a divorce is documented but not the date
