I am a descendant of David Barton and Ruth Oldham and would like to locate all researchers descended from this couple. David was born c 1730 in Stafford Co VA. The next year, this area became Prince William County. When Fauquier County was organized in 1757, David obtained a lease in Leeds Parish. During the winter of 1771/2, he moved the family to Surry Co NC. Legend says that David was killed by British-led Indians while on expedition with Daniel Boone in Kentucky. Based on court records, this must have been in 1775. A search of the Life of Daniel Boone
by Lyman Draper doesn't include any mention of David.
I have collected some information on the family at this site: http://www.bartonsite.org/david_barton_and_ruth_oldham_fam.htm
David was administrator of Thomas(3) Barton’s estate in 1752 and is believed to be a son of Thomas(3) Barton. (for more information see the Thomas(1,2,3) of Stafford County VA family)http://www.thomasbarton.org/
See this family also on the Family History page, which is a part of Lineage Ihttp://www.bartonsite.org/inc_family_history/lineage__i.htm
