From - http://gen.reimert.org/database/b98.htm :
Isaac BARTO was born between 1734 and 1738 in Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. We know Isaac payed taxes in 1759 and owned property. He would have had to at least been 21 years of age based on English common law which was what the colonial laws were modeled after. Also, at the age of 16, males began paying a poll tax. This could be where the 1750 date came from in the History of Berks Co. reference. Isaac may have actually been listed on a tax record with John. This would mean that for sure Isaac was born by at least 1738 and possibly by 1734.
He lived in Oley Twp., Berks Co., Pennsylvania in 1759. "Three of the name came to America in the early days, one John Barto locating in Berks county, Pa., in 1730, Isaac Barto prior to 1750 and Nicholas Barto in 1773. The Isaac Barto mentioned was a large taxable in Oley township, Berks county, in 1759, in which year he paid £14 tax. His descendants are still living in Washington township, that county." He appeared in the census in 1790 in Oley Twp., Berks Co., Pennsylvania. CENSUS YEAR: 1790 STATE: PA COUNTY: Berks DISTRICT: Oley ENUMERATOR: Mark Lotz
