From a Barton history:
George Barton, Sr., whose gravestone
shows a date of death of June 5, 1812, and his son, Elijah, came from N.J. in 1790 and settled on a tract of land which was a wilderness then; he got title to this land from Wm. and John Penn. Mahlon Barton, Sr., was his grandson and his home was a part of the land which his grandfather bought and is now owned by a grandson, Jesse C. Barton, and Dr. Ralph S. Akers, of Miami, Florida.
Mahlon Barton, Sr., married Anna James in 1826 and they had 12
children. Of their sons, M. Morgan, was a Civil War veteran and a church
worker; another son, James, was a Civil War veteran and a church worker
and lived where his grandson, Marvin, now lives, that house being one of
the old ones still in use.
George Barton, son of Elijah, was the father of Hon. George W.
Barton, a school teacher, and a leading citizen of Brush Creek. He was
elected Associate Judge in 1876. His son, Charles E. Barton, became the
Supt. of Fulton County Schools in 1902, and served until his death in May
1907. Mrs. Blanche Barton Barrows, a daughter of George W. Barton, was
born more than 60 years ago on the farm where her parents spent their
lives, it now being owned by Mahlon Barton, and the log part of the
house, built before 1821, is still in use. She was converted in a
revival meeting at Akersville Church about 1893 and her christian life
was nurtured in the church by those kind and fatherly men, B.P. Duvall,
J.L. Jackson, M.M. Barton and others. No doubt many other people could
give like testimony. Since 1918 she has been employed by the government
and lived in Washington, D.C. Her brother, Philip Barton, lives in
Illinois, and her brother, Arthur lives in California.
Mason Barton was a son of Joel Barton and married Charlotte
Akers. They had a number of children who were very talented. All have
passed to the Great Beyond except Harry M. Barton, a prominent man of
Clearfield, Pa., and Mrs. Maggie Barton-Bryson of Breezewood.
