William Barton married Grace Massy in Ireland in the 17 hundreds. A direct descendant of theirs is Andrew Barton "Banjo" Paterson (1864-1941), the famous Australian writer, through his mother Rose Isabella Barton b 1844 NSW. I first discovered our family's relationship to them when I saw how much my brother and nephew resemble a portrait of Banjo Paterson.
