There is a George Washington Barton, who settled in Reynolds Co., Mo. and had a large family with his wife Catherine (Reese) Barton. George originally was from Clark Co., Il. George's father was John Barton and his mother was Mary "Polly" Earles Barton. George had a son named General Taylor Barton, who was born approximately 1854-1856. This is probably who you are speaking about. If you need any more information, please let me know. George was my husband's gggrandmother's brother. I also have a picture of George and Catherine.
