  • Notes  Married:
    • It is likely that Jesse M. Barto, who married Mrs. Eleanor E. Freese Lord is the Jessie Melvin Barto who was born in New York and married Charlotte Elizabeth Pearsall and raised a family with her there until her death in 1925. It is unclear how or when Jessie moved from New York to Florida; however, a Jesse M. Barto is listed as being married there in 1936 in Volusia County, Florida where Eleanor passed away at age 77. At that time, Jessie would have been 84. View documentation of this possibility below:

         • Barto Family - 1892-NY State Census
         • Barto Family - 1910-NY Census
         • Barto Family - 1915-NY State Census
         • Jesse & Charlotte - 1920-NY Census
         • Charlotte Pearsall Barto - 1925-NY Death Information
         • Jesse & Charlotte New York Gravestone

      It was common for someone married more than once to be buried with their first husband (even if that required transporting to another state for burial), probably because in those earlier years the couple had purchased grave plots in advance.

      Similarly, Jesse's second wife, Eleanor, had raised her children with her first husband, George F. Lord, in Illinois, and was transported there after passing to be buried with her first husband.
