Charles Barton was born April l, 1896 and Joseph Thomas Barton was born October 7, 1894. Both in Farmington, Davis, Utah. They were the sons of Joseph Thomas Barton and Mary Ann Norris. Their stories are being written together because they were always together, Mother said they were her twins.

As young boys they helped their father with his dray business in Price and when the family went to Ruby City, Nevada to homestead they helped with the building of the home for the family and with the work there. Later they worked for the various ranchers in Ruby Valley and were very good workers.

When World War I broke out they were both deferred because of their value as farm hands. Finally in 1918 Joe was drafted and Charlie said that if Joe had to go that he was going also, but he wanted to go with Joe so he could be in the same outfit. This wish was granted and the two boys were sent together to Camp Lewis, Washington. Twice they were scheduled to be shipped over seas but were not.

After the Armistice was signed Joe and Charley returned home and worked for a while again in Ruby Valley. Then they decided to leave home and go into the northwest and work in the lumber camps. This they did and it seemed that where ever the boys went they were able to find work and were good at whatever job they accepted. They moved from place to place and the early 1920's found them in Los Angeles, California. Here they went to work at a lumber yard. It wasn't long until Joe was yard foreman and Charley was mill foreman.

Charley was married to Lillie Gregersen July 8, 1927. Lillie had three daughters by a previous marriage: Lilly Rhea born June 26, 1920; Gweneth Lane born January 11,1922; and Robin LaRue born October 14, 1926. Charley and Lillie had five children of their own. This marriage ended in a divorce.

Charley married Fern Lois Smith August 24, 1957. He died November 2, 1975 at the age of seventy-nine.

A lot like Joseph Thomas Sr. Jovial and easy going similar to his father. Definetly had children.
