Hi Mark,

Are you still chasing the tree after all these years. Its been five since you made the posting so I hope your still watching this site. Zona Bell Barton appearsto be my Great grandmas sister.I would like some on Zona Lois Wagner also. Some of what I have is:

Husband: James Nathaniel Barton

d. 1920s in Lincoln Co.Oklahoma according to my
grandpa(Lewis Reed Deceased).
bd. Lamdin Cemetery outside of Prague,Lincoln Co
Oklahoma(no head stone and by word of mouth
of Lewis Reed)

His Father: James Allen Barton
His mother: Celia Ann Brock
(Both raised around Walker Co Alabama)

Wife 1: Margaret Oakley (Oakley is from Julia barton's Calif
death index posting-rootsweb.)
I don't know why they are seperated but he isn't
with her in the 1900 Roger's mills Co.Okla Census.
The daughters are all with Sarah Jane and her


1) Sarah Jane Barton
b. 1876 Alabama
d. 25 Feb 1900 Sayre, Beckham Co. Okla
md. 14 Feb 1892 Fortsmith Dist. Sebastion Co Ark
Thomas Rafel Nelson/Nilson

2) Mary E. Barton
b. 1879 Alabama

Wife 2: Missouri Gregory
b. 1871 Alabama

Reed, my grandpa.)
bd. Lamdin Cemetery,Prague Lincoln Co.Okla
md. 27 July 1884 Howell Co.Missouri.

md. 21 Feb 1906 Westplains, Howell Co.Missouri
Alvin Taylor Wagner/Wagonner/Wagoner.

4) Bertha/Birtha May Barton
b. 21 Apr 1890 Indian Territory
d. Nov 1972 Hobart, Kiowa Co.Oklahoma
md. reportedly never married.

I was told that Julia's Obituary reads that there is another step sister, Laura Parker, but I'm not sure how she fits into the family. Did Missouri have her prior to marrying James N Barton or did Margaret Oakley remarry and have a child.I don'tknow if they divorced or if she died. They were together in the 1880 census of Sebastion Co.Arkansas. Then as stated above the girls were raised by Thomas Nelson and Sarah Jane Barton until Sarah's untimely death in 1900 shortly after that census. Moses Barton,a brother to James N Barton, lived near them inboth the 1880 and 1900 census.

I have a little more info if you will contact meby e-mail.
