From The History Of Lycoming County Pa, chapter 52-

SAMUEL A. BARTO was born in Union county, Pennsylvania, December 25, 1,830, son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Gillman) Barto. His grandfather, John Barto, was one of the pioneers of Union county. His father was a carpenter, which business he followed all his life. He reared seven children: Jonathan, of Illinois; William; Samuel A.; Sarah, wife of Henry Forney; Catharine, deceased wife of David McDaniel; Susan, wife of Samuel Lorman, and Ellen, wife of Frank Kneibler. Samuel, Sr., died in 1884. He was a Democrat in politics, and a Lutheran in religion. The subject of this sketch was reared in Danville, Pennsylvania, and received a public school education. At the age of eighteen he located at Jersey Shore, learned the carpenter’s trade, and engaged in that business at Liberty, Tioga county. He remained there seven years, and two years later located on his present farm in Piatt township, where he carried on his trade in connection with farming. Mr. Barto was married in 1852, to Henrietta, daughter of William Dieffenbacher, and has had the following children: William D. and Abner A., both deceased; Frances, wife of Samuel C. Willitts; Elmer, and Sarah E., deceased. Elmer married Mary McLaughlin, and has three children: Weldon F.; William D., and Henrietta. Mr. Barto is a Republican, and has filled several of the local offices of his township, He is a class-leader in the Evangelical church, and is superintendent of the Sunday school in that organization.

(I'm trying to track down the ancestors of Henry Forney)
