Thanks, Phyllis, I appreciate your response. I think the Hartons were Vikings since I have found the name in northern Germany as well as Denmark. Some came to this country from northern Ireland, but were probably originally from the border area between Scotland and England. There is a Village of Harton near South Shields on the North Sea in England. I have found Hartons in MA,VA,PA, SC, and NC in the 1700's and records in VA in MA in the 1600's. I just wish I could connect Thomas Harton (d. 1795) with one of them. He first appears as a sergeant in the Granville District (NC)militia in 1749 and also served as a Sworn Chain Carrier that year--probably indicating that he had been there a couple of years.
