1. Louisa Adeline (Addie) Barton Marker
Inscription. When Addie Barton (1858-1921) was seven years old, her parents, Dr. Welborn and Louisa Barton, moved to Salado so their children could attend Salado College. Upon graduation, Addie became a teacher. She felt called to become a missionary in 1883 and went to Saltillo, Mexico the next year. Her home church, then called Salado Baptist Church of Christ, commissioned her. She taught at the Madero Institute and other day and boarding schools for girls. Due to the unstable conditions of the Mexican Revolution, she and other missionaries returned home in 1910. Addie worked with Mexican refugees and others in need until her death in 1921 and is remembered as a faithful, loving teacher and leader.
