Thank you, to all who have posted this wonderful information and nostalgia.
I did a Google search on my in-laws last name and found that you had been posting about them on this forum. Seeing the information inspired me to join, so I could post you all and thank you.
I married the oldest daughter of afore mentioned Barb, daughter of Fred Barton.
I am thrilled to learn more about the family that my children will want to know about as they grow. It is unfortunate that the family is so private about it's past that they even feel uncomfortable speaking about it with their own son-in-law. I am afraid that I don't have anything of value to add and if I did, it would not be my place to do so.
I did notice a couple of questions or comments that I might add some insight. I will take notes and comment once I have read through all the posts. For example, there was a picture of a woman shopping and holding a dress (I believe on pg 2 or 3 of the string). The poster questioned if it was Mrs. Fred Barton the third wife. My answer is probably not. I don't know for sure, but I believe at that time his wife was an Asian mail bride named Aching (sp?). Once again, I may be wrong on the timing and which wife, but this is because it just is not talked about in the family.
Good luck in your continued searches and postings. I am enjoying the good reading materials I have found here.
