  • Notes 
    • !RESEARCHER: Steve BARTON, 207 Jeffry Ranch Pl., Clayton CA 94517, who supplied this information via GED file.

      !INFO Served as a Hospital Steward with the Union Army during Civil War (Fourth Regt. West Virginia Vol. Inf'y)

      !INFO "Meigs Co. History" pg 78

      !INFO "Hardesty's Meigs Co" pg 20
      James E. Barton recalls when when he was young, going to a funeral with his dad. When he was there he met someone who had been a patient of T H Barton. This woman said that they used to call Thomas H Barton the"probable doctor" because he would always give a diagnosis by saying,"It's probably {this}, but if not its probably {that}"

      Notes for Amanda Church:
      Amanda is remembered as a very sophisticated lady who always wore earrings and would never appear out without her hair "crimped", as it was called in that day. Clara (Barton) Manley who offers this recollection, described Amanda as being very dainty and proud.

      !INFO on this individual from a GED file from Robert Hall Barton in Sept 2001 and Dec 2002.

      !RESEARCHER Dan Barton on 25 Feb 2003 who noted "[He] Wrote his autobiography entitled "Autobiography of Dr. Thomas H. Barton, The Self-Made Physician."
