Robert Burton was born June 4, 1820 in Effingham Co., Ga. He died July 27, 1897 in Americus, Sumter Co., Ga. He married Martha AshurstWilkinson in Talbot Co., 12 Dec. 1842.

The daughter spoken of here but not named was Clara Belle Burton and she married Charles Frederick Crisp.

As the story goes, the Burton's were less than elated over their daughter's choice of a husband. He was at the time an actor and they felt he had no real future.

Never the less, Robert Burton set out to make his son-in-law a lawyer and he succeeded and he was quite a good lawyer.

He later became Speaker of the House of Representatives.
