Civil War Veteran, Co L, 5th New York Cavalry

Joseph H. Barton was born in Vergennes, Vermont, son of Jean-Baptiste Bertrand and Marguerite Laro Guertin. He was baptised at Saint Peters and is buried there.

In between, he moved as a child across Lake Champlain to the wilderness that would become Elizabethtown, New York, grew up there, fought in the Civil War, married his first wife Abbie and had John and Floretta, and worked as a bloomer. He then returned to Vermont, remarried to Mary Norris of New Haven, and had Anna and Lena. They lived at Brookside in New Haven where he farmed and worked as a grinder at The Brooks Edge Tool Company.

Joseph enlisted 9 Feb 1864 in Company L of New York's 5th Cavalry. The 5th fought at Hanover, Pa., was the first Union regiment that crossed the Rapidan in Grant's campaign, received the first shock at the Wilderness and was the last to leave the field. He mustered out on 13 Jun 1865 at Staunton, Virginia.
