Descendants of Lafayette David Oxford

 Generation No. 1

1. Lafayette David1 Oxford was born 1840 in Georgia, and died 1898 in Casseville ( Barry) MO. He married (1) Bartheovah Horton Abt. 1856. He married (2) Sarah Jane Calton1 03 March 1867 in Barry County, Casseville, Missouri, daughter of Morgan Calton and Mary Marbut.

Notes for Sarah Jane Calton:


Well dear ole great grandmother Sarah Jane has had more last names than you could possibly imagine. I have her marriage certificate that reads Sarah Jane Kelton, then some sources say Carlton, I recently received some pension records that read Calton. In these pension records a Thos Calton & a Johnson Marion were witnesses to a Declaration for a Pension for her. Then in an Identity affidavit dated 1905, there is an Larcuidy Eagle age 70 (related I believe)because in the Calton information I received a Baishebu E. Eagle married Tom Calton, son of Morgan Calton, father of Sarah Calton. There is also a Lish or Tish Eagle that was the informant on her death certificate. W.L. Marbut (related) says he is her very own cousin, and a G.W. Marbut on an Affidavit for Lafayette David Oxford. At any rate with the recent information I received for the Calton Family, I have come to the conclusion her last name was Calton. Sarah could not read or write so I don't think she realized or perhaps did not even know how to spell her last name thus the Kelton spelling when she married John W. Betterton. In this Calton information I have received, it takes me back 4 or 5 more generations.

Burial: 14 November 1923, Cassville Cemetary (per death certificate)

Cause of Death: Chronic Intestitial Nephritis

Medical Information: Sarah was 84 yrs 11 days old. The cause of death came from death certificate signed by Dr. Earnest Mitchell, MD. Monett, MO

Surname: 1923, Death Certificate shows Sarah's maiden name as Calton but her Marriage Certificate to DL Oxford shows Kilton/I changed to Calton, I believe Calton is more correct.
