Winston Barton, deceased, was born in Kentucky in the year 1813,
being a son of Thomas and Susan (Alexander) Barton. He was raised to
manhood on a farm in his native State, and shortly after attaining his
majority came to Warrick County, Ind., purchasing a farm northwest of
Boonville. He followed agricultural pursuits the remainder of his days
in Boon Township, his death occurring January 20, 1872. Mr. Barton was
one of the county's best citizens. Unassuming in his manners, he was
nevertheless firm in his belief, and especially was this the case during
the late war, when he took advanced grounds in favor of the preservation
of the Union. He was a loving husband, a kind and considerate father,
and a member of the United Brethren Church. To his marriage with Mary A.
Bateman, which occurred in 1850, eight children were born, these named
yet living: Sarah C., Samuel C., Lucy (Mrs. Charles Birkemback), Mary
J., Albert and Alice, the two last named being twins. Mrs. Barton is
still living, and is a member of the United Brethren Church.
