Barton, George Gilbert (1877-1943)

George Gilbert Barton (often called “Gilbert”) was a carpenter and building contractor. He lived at 1847 Pendrell Street from 1913 to 1915.

He was born in South Durham, Quebec, on February 15, 1877. His father was William Barton (about 1829 to 1899); his mother was Eliza Jane Walker (1836-1925).

William Gilbert’s first wife was Christina Johnston, whom he married on January 1, 1850, in Lower Langfield, County Tyrone, Ireland. Christina was born about 1824 in Lower Langfield. William and Christina emigrated to Canada in 1851. Christina died on September 21, 1871 in South Durham, Quebec. She was buried in Durham Congregational Cemetery in South Durham.

On March 7, 1872, in South Durham, William married Eliza Jane Walker. She was born in Quebec on June 21, 1836. William died in South Durham on October 23, 1899. He was buried in Durham Congregational Cemetery in South Durham.

Gilbert lived in Quebec with his mother and brothers until after 1901. By 1911, he was living at 884 Howe Street in Vancouver.

On July 3, 1912, in Ulverton or Melbourne, Quebec, Gilbert married Margaret Ann Hill. She was born in Toronto, Ontario on March 23, 1876. Her father was John Hill; her mother was Ellen Fraser.

About 1915, the Barton family moved to Seattle, Washington.

In September 1918, Gilbert registered with the United States military draft system. He was living in Seattle, Washington, and was working as a commission merchant at the union stock yards in Seattle.

In 1920, Gilbert was living in Seattle, along with Margaret and their two children: William (“Billy”) Oliver Barton and Mary Alice Barton. Gilbert’s mother, Eliza, was also living with them.

Eliza died in Seattle on October 14, 1925. She was buried in Durham Congregational Cemetery in Durham, Quebec.

In 1930, Gilbert and Margaret were living in Seattle, along with Billy and Mary.

In 1940, Gilbert and Margaret were living in Seattle, along with their daughter, Mary. Gilbert was working as a livestock merchant. Billy was living in San Francisco, California, and working as a clerk in a Sears, Roebuck department store.

Gilbert died in Seattle on November 24, 1943. He was buried at Acacia Memorial Park and Funeral Home, Lake Forest Park, Washington.

Margaret died in Seattle on February 5, 1960. She was buried at Acacia Memorial Park and Funeral Home, Lake Forest Park, Washington.

Gilbert and Margaret had the following children.

 

William Oliver Barton (“Billy”)

William Oliver Barton was born in Vancouver on April 7, 1913. In 1940, he was living in San Francisco, California, and working as a clerk in a Sears, Roebuck department store. It appears that he died in Roseville, Minnesota on December 5, 1998.

 

Mary Alice Barton

Mary Alice Barton was born in Vancouver about 1915, perhaps on October 6, 1914. By 1943, she was married to Lee McMurtrie (or McMurtry), and was living in Seattle, Washington. Lee may have been born in Washington State about 1916.

Mary may have died on May 7, 2001, in Washington State.
