Hiram E. Barton
One of the popular and respected citizens of Eldorado county, California, was the late Hiram E. Barton, who was born at Latrobe, this county, April 5, 1867, a son of Hiram E. and Margaret Ann Barton, both of whom came from New York state and were pioneer settlers of Eldorado county. Mr. Barton attended the common schools in his youth, and then engaged in mining. Later, for a period of twenty years, in company with his wife, he conducted the hotel at Shingle Springs, California. During the last few years of his life, however, he was an invalid, and the burden of conducting the hotel fell upon Mrs. Barton, who prior to her marriage was Miss Daisy E. Russi. Mr. and Mrs. Barton became the parents of the following children: Leeland Harrison, who served in the United States Navy during the World war; Margaret, the wife of G. Erbs, and who is a private secretary at Honolulu; and Rollie, who is in government service. Mr. Barton was a member of the Masonic fraternity, the Independent Order of Odd Fellow, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and was a charter member of the Native Sons of the Golden West. In politics he was a republican, while his wife favored the democratic party. Mrs. Barton is a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, the Rebekahs, the Women of Woodcraft, and is a charter member of the
Native Daughters of the Golden West.
Anton Rucci, the father of Mrs.
Barton, was born in Italy November 21, 1845. At the age of fourteen
years, he ran away from home, stowed away on a vessel leaving for
America, and eventually landed at San Francisco, where he remained a
year. He then came to Eldorado county where he worked for a period, and
then started in the cattle business. He homesteaded at Lake Tahoe, where
he established the first dairy in the vicinity of the lake. He attended
school in Italy, also in Eldorado county. Mrs. Barton's grandmother,
Sarah Wallace, crossed the plains in a covered wagon, and Mrs. Barton's
mother, Maria Louisa Wallace, was an early schoolteacher of Eldorado
county. She married Anton Russi May 13, 1876, Mrs. Barton's father died
August 20, 1891, and her mother January 14, 1926, and they are both
buried at Folsom, California. They were the parents of eleven children,
of whom two are deceased.
