in the Census - I cannot find Samuel until 1880 when he shows up with his son.  Elizabeth appears in 1860 & 1870 with her daughter Sarah Forney.  


Census:
1860 Census
Elizabeth is already living with her daughter and son in law in 1860.  If Samuel lived until 1884, where was he?  He does reappear in the 1880 census with his son Samuel Jr.  He is not with Samuel Jr in 1860.

1870 Census
WHERE is Samuel in 1870?  Not with his son Samuel..  and Elizabeth is living with her daughter and son in Law - Sarah and Henry Forney.  I cannot find Samuel Jr in 1870 either, so it is possible they live together, as they do in 1880.

Research
SAMUEL A. BARTO JR was born in Union county, Pennsylvania, December 25, 1830, son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Gillman) Barto. His grandfather, John Barto, was one of the pioneers of Union county. His father was a carpenter, which business he followed all his life. He reared seven children: Jonathan, of Illinois; William; Samuel A.; Sarah, wife of Henry Forney; Catharine, deceased wife of David McDaniel; Susan, wife of Samuel Lorman, and Ellen, wife of Frank Kneibler. Samuel, Sr., died in 1884. He was a Democrat in politics, and a Lutheran in religion. The subject of this sketch was reared in Danville, Pennsylvania, and received a public school education. At the age of eighteen he located at Jersey Shore, learned the carpenter's trade, and engaged in that business at Liberty, Tioga county. He remained there seven years, and two years later located on his present farm in Piatt township, where he carried on his trade in connection with farming. Mr. Barto was married in 1852, to Henrietta, daughter of William Dieffenbacher, and has had the following children: William D. and Abner A., both deceased; Frances, wife of Samuel C. Willitts; Elmer, and Sarah E., deceased. Elmer married Mary McLaughlin, and has three children: Weldon F.; William D., and Henrietta. Mr. Barto is a Republican, and has filled several of the local offices of his township, He is a class-leader in the Evangelical church, and is superintendent of the Sunday school in that organization.

=============================================================

I made a trip to Salladasburg this week, and photographed the tombstone, and the ones around it, for myself. The Sarah listed under Samuel here is his grandaughter, not his wife - so I am guessing his wife is buried in Montour County?  
See all the Bartos tombstones at Salladasburg Cemetery here.


==================================================


In 1880 there is an Elizabeth living with Daniel, listed as his mother, but I do not think this is related - they are found in the 1870 Census too, and we know that "our" Elizabeth is living with her daughter Sarah in 1870.  Some researchers list Daniel as an additional child of Samuel & Elizabeth (Gillman) Barto, but based on the census info below, I think this is a mistake.
