J. Harvey Barton died of apoplexy at New Haven on Monday, aged 45 years. He was born in Waltham on the farm first settled by the Barton family before the Revolutionary War, but at the age of four years removed with his parents to New Haven, which has since been his home. He was the son of R.A. and A.L. Barton, deceased. At the age of 18 years, he enlisted as a recruit in the war of the rebellion as a member of Co. H, 7th Vt. Vols., and served until the close of the war. He was wounded at the battle of Blakely, and again at the siege of a fort. A long and severe malarial fever left him shattered in health, and he never fully recovered. He was generous and obliging, kind to all whom he could assist. He leaves two sisters - Mrs. Ella B. Carr of Middlebury and Mrs. H.S. Hart of Pittsford, and one brother, Rev. R. F. Barton of Dayton, Wash.
