Rosses and Bartons

By Bryan Ross

I have done a lot of research on the Ross family, all the way back to Rice Farrar Ross, who was born in 1776. Had not gotten much on the Barton family. I knew that Isaac Rice Ross was married to Mary Rutha (or Ruth) Barton. I have worked hard on this  with the help of Cathy Thibodeaux and Catherine  Cooper. 
Read History of his daughter  Mary Susan 
Male Barton Line:
Christopher Barton/Dorothy are parents of Isaac Barton, born Killaloe, Ireland (occupation|cutler; religion:Quaker)
Isaac Barton/Sarah Vesey are parents of Joshua Barton, born 19 Aug., 1718 Chester Co. PA
Joshua Barton/Jane Dubart are parents of David Barton, born 15 March, 1744, Fredrick Co., Maryland
David Barton/Hanna Hill are parents of   Thomas Barton, born 26, Nov. 1785. 
Thomas Barton/Tabitha Hodges are parents of William Hill Barton, born about 1815 Wilson or Rutherford Co. Tn. 
William Hill Barton/Susan Allen are parents of Thomas Elijah and  Mary Rutha Barton. William was born 26 Nov 1844 Henderson (Chester Co.) Tn. I feel sure this is where John Allen Ross got his Allen./
