I had not visited this thread of info in several years and have enjoyed reading the posts. I have done TONS of research on the Smith's, Burke's, Methvin's, Barton's etc. - very interesting families. I am working towards publishing a book with the results of my research. If anyone is interested, please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org
). Please send contact info.
BTW, my connection is through my grandfather William Eason Barton, his father William Jasper Barton, his mother Margaret Lississippie Barton, her parents Joel Eason Jason Smith and wife Mary Jane Methvin Smith and on back.
