Mr. Barton traded in stock several years, commenced business here in 1869. His trade is largely among farmers. He endured the depression in 1873 and 1874, but had realized his share of the prosperity that has since followed. In 1863 was elected Justice of the Peace and served 3 and a half terms of 4 years. He was succeeded by John F. DAVIDSON who now holds the position. At a meeting of the merchant princes of the city of Boston, to listen to a speech from Daniel WEBSTER that orator commenced addressing them under the name and style of "The solid men of Boston."
