JOB BARTON was born in Monroe County, N. Y., January 20, 1824, and is the sixth child of a large family of children born to Wrescom P. and Dimmis (Phillips) Barton, both of whom were natives of New York, and of English descent. Wrescom P. Barton was educated and married in his native State, where in early life he learned the millwright’s trade, which, in connection with farming, he followed all his life. His death occurred in 1840; he and wife were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Job Barton, at the age of about eighteen or twenty years, commenced to work at the millwright’s trade, having learned the same with his father and brother. In 1842 he removed to Stony Creek, Ontario, where he remained about one year. He then removed to Waterloo Township, near Guelph, Canada, where he resided for a short time. He continued to follow his trade at various points in Canada until September, 1865, when he came to Hickman County, Ky., where he bought a farm two miles east of Columbus, and has since been employed in agricultural pursuits, fruit growing, and at his trade. He was married, February 18, 1851, at Wellington Square, near Hamilton, Canada, to Miss Amelia M. Morgan, a native of New York. Twelve children blessed their union, six of whom, four sons and two daughters, are yet living. Both Mr. Barton and wife are devoted and consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He is also an earnest advocate of the temperance cause, and in politics he is a Republican.
