Can anyone shed any light on Margaret C. Barton, wife of Bailey A. Barton in 1880, Eastland Co, TX, census. Joab Ainsworth is living in their house, a few doors down from Larkin Clark Ainsworth during that census. I have seen those that say Margaret C. was a daughter of Joab and Evaline, but she is not listed with the family in the 1850 census. She would have been about four years old then. As for the 1870 census, there is a J. Ainsworth, age 60, b. AL, in the Navarro Co, TX, census. He is living in Mangrum (sp)house. Could be our Joab.
I am still trying to prove Joab was a son of Thomas Ainsworth and Sarah Finch but can not at this point.
