James moved thence to Morgan County, where he lived for twenty years. His wife dying ante 12 Feb. 1869 in Clarke Co., GA (probate), he removed to Smith Co., Texas, dying there in 1874/76 (his son John having arrived there in 1869). [By way of backround, James' father, Caleb Barton (1775-1835), marrried 10 May 1799, Pendleton Dist., SC (by the Rev. John Cleveland, Baptist minister), Sarah Harris (1783-1857).]

>Do you know how Barton Hamilton came by his first name?
>Debby, how I wish I knew where his name came from! All I know about Barton comes from the last 15 years of his life. I have tried to find a Barton surname connection, but have been unable to do so. I did find a Mary Barton who m. a Hamilton in the early 1700's in PA, but the dates didn't fit. There was another Barton Hamilton in AL after the Civil War, I think. Unfortunately the data I got on him did not fit the timeframe for my guy.
Would love to know if you have any ideas.
Clarke Co., GA was settled heavily by some descendants of the Pendleton Dist., SC Bartons. Some of the chief surnames represented by these descendants were: Thrasher, Middlebrook and Richardson. Do any of these names turn up in your records?
The Barton girls had a habit of naming their sons Barton. In the 1850 census of Clarke Co., there were at least 3 Barton Thrashers and 1 Barton Middlebrook. Where were your Hamiltons during the 1850 census?

My family remained in Clarke Co almost until I left in 1951! I will look into possible connections to Bartons in that area. I have not established why Barton Hamilton moved to Clarke Co at such a late time in his life. He applied for land in the 1825 Land Lottery, but was not a GA resident for the 1805 or 1820 lottery. The land which he got in the lottery was not awarded until after his death, but it was to be sold in order to buy a home for his family, according to his will.
Thanks for your help.
