Mr. J. E. Barton, an old and well-known citizen of Mason died at the Confederate Soldier’s Home near Nashville, Monday night, and his remains were brought back to Mason and buried there Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Barton sustained a fall while hauling hay some months ago, as a result of which his hip was fractured, and from which he never recovered. The deceased was an ex-Confederate veteran, was a native of Kentucky, and was about 72 years of age. He is survived by his wife, who was Miss Sammie Somervell, of this county, a son, Mr. Robert Barton, and a daughter, Miss Nellie Barton.
