Floyd Barton © Cheyenne Star 14 May 1998 Submitted by: Wanda Purcell
Floyd Barton was born September 6, 1902 in Hood County, Texas on the Pluxy River where his grandparents settled when they left Alabama for Texas.
He passed away March 15, 1998 at home in Comanche, Texas. He was 95 years and 6 months of age.
When Floyd was one month old, his parents, some uncles and families loaded what they owned in covered wagons, took their cattle and horses and left Texas for western Oklahoma.
His father, Robert Barton took a job working for Slack and Dunn for small wages to help expenses.
They lived in a dug out on the Dunn Ranch till Robert and Ella Ford Barton bought their first land and moved to their new one room home where they added more land for several years.
Floyd lived on that land till 1975 when he and wife Helen sold out, retired, traveling then brought their home in Texas.
It was his desire to be buried in the Rock Church Cemetery in Tolar, close by the Pluxy River where his grandparents, his great grandmother, uncles and aunts are buried.
