  • Notes 
    • Many publications available at genealogical libraries include significant errors about the Roger Barton line. As senior researcher Jim Barton puts it "The problem with the Roger Barton line is not lack of information. The problem is an abundance of misinformation." The best and most complete publication to date is George E. McCracken's article titled "Roger Barton of Westchester County, New York, and Some of His Earlier Descendants," published in serial form in "The New England Historical and Genealogical Register," Vols. 106 and 107, 1952 and 1953. Even it, however, contains some errors in details. It may be viewed behind the paywall at https://www.americanancestors.org/databases/new-england-historical-and-genealogical-register/image?pageName=168&volumeId=11605 Compiler's recommendation: do your own original research... it's part of the fun of our hobby.
