Barton, Joseph

Barton, Joseph an English Congregational minister, was born at Doncaster in 1803. After he had given evidence of piety he was urged to devote himself to the Episcopal ministry; this, however, he objected to, and joined the Congregationalists; was educated at Rotherham College, and became pastor at Bakewell. Mr. Barton subsequently labored successively at Brassington, Ravenstonedale. Wirksworth, and at Mattock Bath, where he died in 1874. See (Lond.) Cong. Yearbook, 1875, p. 312. Barton, Titus Theodore, a Congregational minister, was born at Granby, Mass., in 1765. He graduated at Dartmouth College in 1790; was ordained over the Church at Tewksbury, Mass., in 1792, and was dismissed in 1803. His next charge was Fitchburg, 1804-13. He removed to Hilham, Tenn., and thence in 1827 northward, designing to settle in Jackson, Ill., but died very suddenly on his journey, Oct. 31, 1827. See Cong. Quarterly, 1859, p. 47; Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, ii, 87.
