While researching one of my wife's line going back to colonial Massachusetts I came across the Barton family in Salem. Edward Barton and his wife Elizabeth along with several children settled in Salem about 1640. The Bartons had at least 7 children including a son, Mathew, who's son Samuel married Hannah Bridges, daugter of Edmund Bridges jr. and Sarah Towne. Sarah and her sisters were directly involved in the Salem which trials. The Barton name sounded familiar and I soon found the same Edward Barton in my tree and another son, William, who I'm descended from. Edward was her 9th great grandfather
