About the Batton surname

My father told me a story about his Grandfather and his seven brothers. They came here from Europe. That our last name almost was Horn. Something to do with immigration and the eight boys with the same last name. But after working on I have found out that they came from Baden, Germany. The name Batton is written in many forms. Batton, Batten, Battin, and sometime with only one "t". They came to Canada and Virginia. They fought on both sides of the war. Some of our families were confederate and the others union. They settled in the Ohio valley plus in Kentucky-Tennessee area. Tho dad said he had a half brother in California. Maybe you Batton's out there can share your stories and history finds.
