Re: Delaware Co, OH - BARTON in Trenton Twp

We have done a fair amount of research trying to learn if there might be any connection of these two BARTON lines and can tell you that there still appears to be no known connection, if one exists.

It has been suggested that Kimber BARTON's mother or grandmother was from Cecil County, MD. For many years I have wondered if there might not be some connection to one of the BARTONs of Baltimore County, MD.

My reasons for looking into Amples/Amplias BARTON also is an attempt to determine just who he descended from. At one time I felt that he was the son of William Hitchcock BARTON and am now less sure than when I started. At this point in time I suspect Amples/Amplias BARTON was the son of an Englishman named William H. BARTON, who migrated to Baltimore County in about 1793.

The fact that Amplias/Amples and his wife Emeline RICHARDSON BARTON named a daughter Amanda, a name that seems to run only in the Englishman's line, makes me think he is of that line. The "Englishman" William H. BARTON's family lived amongst the descendents of Thomas BARTON (the early planter) and married into the LOW/LOWE family as did the descendents of the early planter.

The Bucks County BARTONs are stuck in about the same time frame as I am (1700) but the families show few signs of relation, outside of short distance/separation, ie., names that ought to appear in each line (Joseph, for example) are not shared.
