Information on George Barton (also known from Mardell Barton research as George Barton Sr.) and his son Elijah:
Elijah and his wife, Mary Barton were first cousins. Elijah's father was George Barton Sr.; George Barton Sr.'s father was Noah Barton (Elijah and Mary Barton's grandfather), born 1668 in West Chester, West Chester Co., NY.

----------

From Barton Family Information - Compiled by C. Kirkstadt, Jan 1997:
GEORGE BARTON (GEORGE SR.) AND SON ELIJAH - From "History of Bedford, Somerest and Fulton Counties"
"George Barton, Sr., and his son Elijah, from New Jersey, settled, in 1790, on a tract of eight hundred and thirty-four acres. In 1793, Noah Barton, son of George, Sr., came from New Jersey and settled on land now owned by Mahlon Barton. George Barton, Sr., died in 1815. He was the father of John, Elijah, George, Noah and Jane."
"Some time prior to the revolutionary war Elijah Barton, wife and family left their home in New Jersey and started for the west to carve out for himself a home in the wilderness. He selected in Brush Creek valley, the title to which he received from William and John Penn."
Gravestone near P. O. in Crystal Spring shows George Barton, died Jun 5, 1812 age 93 years. (CVK Note: therefore he was born in 1719....other information re. George Barton say he was born in 1731 and died in 1815, therefore age 84).
