This is my Great Grandparents, Frank and Mary Eva (Williams) Barton.  He was born in Henry County, Iowa on December 21, 1867. He was the son of John and Sara (Doan) Barton.  She was born January 25, 1869, in Des Moines County, Iowa.  She was the daughter of Jonas and Amanda (Armstrong) Williams.  They were married March 20, 1889 in New Market.  They had eight children:  Zella, George, Glenn (my grandfather), Lee, Ruth, Earnest, Neal and Russell. Mary Eva and baby Russell drowned on July 31, 1915 when their horse and buggy went off a bridge over a flooded creek near Bedford.  Frank died May 23, 1950.  Let me know if you would like more information about this family.
