Rebecca Ann Barton was my g.grandmother, husband James Monroe Richardson, son George Hayes Richardson. My grandfather George Hayes was born March 5, 1877, d. 1967 in norther MS. Rebecca Ann Barton was said to be native American. The family story is that she lived in Georgia and her father had a carriage business in Atlanta. She remembered seeing the smoke when Sherman burned Atlanta. They were moving away, probably to AL before she grew up. She was a child or adolescent when Atlanta burned. She married James Monroe Richardson and probably lived in Alabama before my grandfather moved on to northern MS, TN, and KY, then back to MS.
I have no other information about Rebecca Ann Barton and would like to know more. Does anyone have links to Native American Bartons, perhaps Choctaw or Seminole? Thanks for any assistance.
