      This is FALSE. Mary was Mary Anglin. Her fathers will listed James Barton as a son in law. The Barton's were from Caswell NC not Edgecombe. 1784 tax record is quite clear. The bios in Clarke Ar are not factual. They are somewhat close. Not exact. I have read them and documents tell a different story. In 1798 Millington was in Logan Ky his mother was a Beggs and her brother was also in Logan. They moved from there to Union/Johnson Illinois along that County line and were members of Clear Creek Baptist Church. They likely had letters from Logan Ky. That Church was part of the Cape Girardeaux group and Primitive Baptists. Church records, when available, show a pretty clear path. They had letters so they could move to new area. There was a Milington Smith in Union Illinois 1840 and I will pull up the will of Millington as it listed the children. In 1810 Mary Barton, Barnabas and Millington all live on the Big Whippoorwill Creek. When Millington and Barnabas were chain carriers for William McIntosh they may have each received 35 acres of the 200. I know Barnabas sold his 35 to Sarah McIntosh when her husband Cornelius died in 1816. I will look at those early Logan tax records for the Smiths and Beggs and Bartons.

  • Notes 
    • Stephen Peyton Barton is mentioned in the will of James which was written in 1804. James bought land in Logan Ky as per court records. In 1810 Mary was listed in the Logan County records. William Duncan was mentioned in the James Barton will as a good friend. He was born in Culpeper Va, His father was killed and the three sons, Martin, later a judge in Springfield Tn, John Peking jr who died in Illinois and William were orphaned out many years later. William was listed as a good friend of James Barton and not a brother in law. The Duncan's and Micintosh's were neighbors in Culpeper about the time John Peking sr was growing up. Because the brother of William was a judge in the County to the south William was held in high regard in Logan Ky. Few Duncan's were around the McIntosh and Barton families until the 1792 move from Caswell to Sprinfgfeld Tn. Then the move a little north into Logan Ky.
      I do not know why anyone said Mary Duncan as they do not have any documentation. James barton and his future brother in law William McIntosh served together in the Rev war. James barton bought land from Thomas McIntosh the brother of William.
      The Smith's and Beggs were in Edgecombe. Barbara Barton was born in Caswell. Stephen Barton has his headstone in Wilson Tn. On it we find "Native of Caswell NC." Millington married Barbara Barton and his little brother married Mary Ann McIntosh the first cousin of Barbara. Both famiies moved from Logan Ky to Union/Johnson Illinois ca 1817. Millington, Barnabas and Mary are mentioned in the Clear Creek Baptist Church records. Mary joined that Church with her mother Nancy and brother Charles. They were living along the border of Union and Johnson Counties. Mary's little brother Aaron was a minister for that Church. John McIntosh donated the Church land. John and Aaron (Charles and Mary) were first cousins. John was the clerk. Barnabas and Millington were chain carriers for William McIntosh in 1798. I believe they received land for that service. Barnabas sold 35 acres to the widow of the brother of Mary. Basically his sister in law. On that transaction it listed the children of Cornelius McIntosh the second son of William and little brother of Mary. William Jr was the first son. MtDNA can prove that Barbara and Mary were cousins. But Mary's daughter Charity married and disappeared. Her husband William Morgan was a next door neighbor in 1840 to the Smiths and McIntosh's. I do not know where they went by 1850 but many were in Arkansas 1842 and earlier.
