William E. Barton

William E. Barton was born Dec. 9, 1815 in Caroline County, N. C., the eldest son of Andrew and Eliza (Kelly) Barton, who were natives of Maryland, of English origin. His mother died when he was five years of age, and in 1823 he came to Wayne County with his father, who lived in Franklin Township until his death. On reaching his majority he worked out for a year, and Jan. 10, 1838 he was married to Phoebe Webster, a native of Berks County, Pa., who came with her parents to Indiana when eight years of age. Six children have been born to them, three of whom survive. After his marriage Mr. Barton bought the farm where he still resides, and which contains 174 acres of excellent land. He has been actively engaged in the cause of Christianity for fifty-three years and for thirty years was a local preacher in the Methodist Episcopal Church.
