Edward Everett Barton (1870-1951) was a prominent attorney and member of the Kentucky Legislature who avidly pursued his interest in Northern Kentucky genealogy and history. The “Barton Papers” were collected between 1905-1961 with the bulk compiled in 1937-1948.  His records, which measure 24.8 cubic feet, have been put on microfilm available at the Pendleton County Public Library and from the Genealogical Society of the Mormon Church.  The genealogical research materials include copies of court records, family data sheets, correspondence, and clippings.  The family files include data sheets, copies of marriages, wills, and other court records, notes from published and unpublished genealogies and histories, correspondence, and clippings from local newspapers.  Northern Kentucky counties that are included are Pendleton, Campbell, Kenton, Boone, and Grant.


Transcriber’s Note: The only change made to the index during transcription was the addition of numbers within parentheses next to certain surnames.  This indicates that the family name appears more than once on a given microfilm roll. This was done to conserve space and time. Some families appear on different microfilm rolls and the user is encouraged to try various spellings of the surname being researched. Also, please note, this transcriber does not have information on the amount or type of information available for each family or subject.
