The Bartons of Bartonsville


Abstract:
Stephen Barton, Jr. moved to Hertford County, North Carolina in 1856 to establish a mill village based on the lumber trade with Norfolk and Northern ports. The brother of lauded humanitarian Clara Barton, Stephen's mill thrived until commercial insecurity in 1860 caused by looming conflict and Barton's neutrality during the American Civil War.
