President’s Welcome

Once in a blue moon you come across some [address] information, and you think to yourself it is awfully old. That person is probably not even at that email address any longer. Well I took a chance and connected with the GGGG Granddaughter of Jane Barton, daughter of Benjamin Franklin Barton and Dorcas Anderson. Jane is the sister to my GGGG Grandfather, Joshua Lane Barton. I was really shocked when I received an email back. I checked the Barton Database and there is nothing pertaining to Jane except she was married to George Brown. As you know the women’s lines do not continue on in our Barton Database, and for a very good reason. But my 5th Great Aunt will come alive in my Database and be honored as the Pioneer Woman she was and all the heirs she produced. Blessings to all, Peggy Nouri
