Yes, we do know who Samuel Barton, Esquire, was. Remember that he
was a land agent and early into Davidson Co., TN. He was
called "The old Entry Taker". He came at least by 1793 from
Caswell Co., NC. No genealogist that I know of has connected
him to any of the Barton lines that have been researched.
