The first Bartlett Book was published in 1915 by A. J. Bartlett; it was the genesis for the second Bartlett Book, researched by Mrs. Lois Mildred Harris Willett in the ‘50s -‘80s, and published by my fourth cousin, Mrs. Norma Schaefer Bartlett Wilsand of Heltonville, Indiana. The book was typewritten, and was out of print. Due to numerous inquiries on the Internet, and my interest in seeing that the information gathered is preserved and disseminated, I decided to reissue the Bartlett book. The book is written in descendancy outline format, and has two graphics; many old letters are published. I have included a table of contents in the same descendancy format. The original introduction, and the front cover were also retained; several pages with xeroxed graphical material were omitted.

               With 7300 people in the Bartlett book, there is certain to be some errors. If you find any errors or omissions, please let me know and I will update the book.     

               Only the line of the son Samuel (B-8), John Bartlett (A-1) into Kentucky, New York, Michigan, and Illinois was followed in the original. The following additions to that line have been made:


1)            Norma Wilsand's, and my own research, into the line of Jeffrey Bartlett (E-2), Samuel (D-2), William Bartlett (C-1) into Kentucky, Indiana, Kansas, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.

2)            Work on the line of Jeffrey's brother Hanes (E-1) Samuel (D2) into Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois, by Joan Pointer of Fauquier, Virginia, and Kim Norris of Wyoming.

3)            A comprehensive work on the line of Warren (D-6) Ebeneezer (C-5) Samuel (B-8), into Illinois and Nebraska, from Mr. A.A. Jones of Wheatridge, Colorado.

4)            Work on the descendants of Fanny (F-10), Eli (E-4), Samuel (D-2) from Carl Morgan of Pepperell, Massachusetts.

5)            Research on the line of Ossa Bertram Bartlett (H-1) Alonzo (G- 6) Samuel Jeffrey (F-5) Jeffrey

 (E-2) by Dan Todd of Heltonville, Indiana.

6)                        Judy Vietri, Mike Slone, and my work on the descendants of Enos (E-3) Samuel (D-2) into Indiana,

Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma.

7)                        Research on the line of Ebeneezer (D-1) William (C-1) into Kentucky and Illinois.

8)                        The descendancy of  Betsy (Elizabeth) (D-9) William (C-1) Samuel (B-8) in Kentucky, Illinois,            

and Texas, from Gerald Reid Tudor, of Madison co, KY.

9)                        The descendancy of Mahala (E-5), Samuel (D-2) from Judy Vietri of Mesa, AZ.


                With the proliferation of Internet websites devoted to genealogy, much more material on the Bartlett family is coming to light. All of this needs to be verified, as there is much that is wrong also.

This introduction was written by Lois Mildred Harris Willett.


                Little did I realize what a conversation spoken around a dining room table ca 1952 in Fraser Twp, Bay Co. MI. would become.  The conversation was between me and my mother Myrtle Brewer Harris, a daughter of William Willis Brewer and Ada Frances Bartlett regarding my maternal grandmother not knowing anything about her Bartlett ancestors or the family due to the death of her father when she was quite young.


                The family resided in Calhoun Co. MI, having come there from New York state.  My mother told me that my grandmother had known of a small printed booklet on the Bartlett Family and which she thought might be in the possession of one of my grandmother's sister's daughter who resided in Battle Creek, MI.  There was also some memory of a relative visiting from New York many years before, possibly before my mother was born.


                I asked my mother to contact this distant cousin in Battle Creek to see if she had such a Bartlett book, and if she did could I have a copy made of it for my use.  Shortly afterwards I received the Bartlett Book which was compiled and printed by Mr. A. J. Bartlett of Romulus, NY before his death in 1915.  It is not known how many copies of this book were printed, but evidently not very many.  As I read and reread this book I could see that I was going to have a time trying to make heads or tails out of the material.  I knew very little about the task of doing genealogy work at that time, but I was determined to learn about my ancestry and so I began.


                The booklet did give some names, births and death dates, and the locations of some members of the family, other families were left dangling somewhere across the United States. Mr. A. J. Bartlett had served the family well that stayed in the New York area, but those that pioneered into the West and South had very little information and sometimes even lacking proper identification.


                I questioned my mother for all the information she could remember of her mother's family, asking for any type of newspaper clippings, obits, etc, and anything that my grandmother might have kept for years. Even a hint sent me on a search for information. I also questioned my Aunts who were living and who had lived in the area all of her life. Her memory brought forth some new leads.


                My own childhood memories of going to certain places, like a school house for a reunion, or people coming to visit with my grandmother while she was still living brought more questions to be answered. As was the fashion in the early 1930's people attended barn or house dances and my parents always took us three girls with them, and I had memories of distant relatives being at these dances. I could remember of going to different cemeteries in the area with my parents and grandmother so knew there must be relatives buried there. It took lots of questions, answers, stamps, envelopes and paper but I finally had some success.


                Letters to the sexton's of the cemeteries were not always fruitful, but I finally found what I needed since there were no death records kept as early as that time period. The wife of a sexton spent many hours searching the old cemetery records for me and found the place of burial and dates for my great grandparents.


                I searched the Court House records in Marshall, Calhoun Co. MI. for many records and found them.  I have since learned that there are more records to be found there, but someone else will have to get these as I will not be able to get back there for some time. All kinds of letters were written to friends, Register of Deeds, Probate Court and the neighbors in the area.


                Other letters were written to Romulus, Seneca Co. N.Y. where contact was made with descendants of the brothers who remained there. One gentleman was so very helpful and even sent me a silver spoon which had belonged to one of my ancestors. He knew much about the family and advised me where to search for more information about other descendants. Much to my surprise, I learned through this man, that a daughter of A. J. Bartlett resided in Saginaw, MI. only a short drive from where I resided. She was quite old and not well, but I had the pleasure of visiting with her several times before she died unexpectedly. I went to the Memorial services for her before the body was shipped back to Seneca Co. NY for burial in the Bartlett Cemetery at the Sampson Ordnance Depot. She had lived with a maiden aunt for years in Saginaw. Shortly after Rose Bartlett Hagerty died this aunt wrote to me to come as she had some things to give to me. This included many old letters and indentures which Rose had saved. Among these letters were some written by my own great grandfather, Thomas N. Bartlett, and his brother Aaron B. Bartlett, and the sister Kesia Bartlett Krewson. Copies of these letters were sent to MIigan State Library, Family History Section. The old original letters written by Kesia Krewson were given to her descendants who resided at Gaines, MI, who I visited many times. A package of these old letters was returned to Seneca Co. NY and sent to Waterloo NY for use of other persons.


                Contact was made about 1957 with descendants of Ebenezer Seeley Bartlett who settled in Clark Co. IL.  I was sent a copy of "The Descendants of Ebenezer Bartlett" written by C.F. Baker. A very helpful County Clerk supplied much information on this family. I corresponded with many of the descendants of this man. About 1979 or 1980 I became more involved in doing more research on Ebenezer's descendant and the material has been added to what I already had.


                I also made a contact in Louisville, Ky. in an effort to locate the descendants of the two brothers, Samuel and William Bartlett who went to Kentucky about the time of the Revolutionary War. I corresponded with many Bartlett people, but some I could not place. One day I received a letter giving me the name and address of another lady who had done considerable research on her Bartlett family. In this letter she stated the names of her Bartlett men and I knew that we had made the right connection as the family names had been handed down for many generations. We were two very happy people, because I was able to supply her with the information she had been looking for. With this information she had research done in Conn. and we found our ancestor there. There is much information in Kentucky and Virginia, but I am not able to include all of this in my book.


                In 1970 I made a trip to Kentucky to visit with several of these descendants and learned that my correspondent was very ill and I was unable to visit with her. Possibly her information was given to some Historical Society in KY, either at Louisville, or Maysville.


                As I am still involved in doing research on these Bartlett families and also some of the sidelines there maybe additional data added before this family history is finally ready for copying. There will be errors found and some lines left dangling for lack of information but I feel it is time to get this material in some kind of order. I can only say Thank You to all of you who have helped In some way to make this history as complete as it is; without your help and additional data it would never have reached this stage.


                To all the descendants of John Bartlett and his wife Elizabeth Hanes (Haynes) and all the others I wish you well, and hope someday someone with lots of hopes will continue my work.

                Stamford, CT, dau. of Ebenezer Seeley and Mercy Dean. Information on the Seeley family will follow the

                Bartlett data.



                There was actually no research done on of these children except for the last born, from whom we all are descended, so there is lots more information on the Bartlett family to be found and recorded. It is not known exactly when Samuel Bartlett and his wife Mercy Seeley moved to New York State, but it is known that her father Ebenezer Seeley with 10 of his children, plus others left Conn. for Orange Co. NY in 1744.  It is known that Jonas Seyley (Seeley) and his wife Sarah Bartlett (B-6), John Bartlet (B-7) and our Samuel Bartlett and wife Mercy Seeley, sister of the above Jonas settled in Orange Co. NY. LMHW.
                John Bartlett  was a prominent man in Norwalk and is mentioned in several published books, but they give nothing of his ancestry. He was admitted as an inhabitant of Stamford, CT. in 1703. In 1706 he was in Norwalk. He was a lawyer, probably self educated, and a large landowner through his wife's estate (Haynes). The records indicate that John Bartlett was a very rich man for the time in which he lived. John Bartlett was a Representative and Deputy to the General Assembly of Connecticutt, for this service all descendants are entitled to hold membership in any and all Colonial organizations.


                The Will of John Bartlett  is located at Norwalk, CT; it is dated 11 April 1761, proven 11 August 1761 and gives wife Mary Á100, 2/3 household goods, life interest in house and lands. Mentions son, Samuel Bartlett, daughters, Elizabeth, Hannah, Isabel, Mary and Sarah and their grandfather William Haynes estate. Also mentions daughters Ann and Rebecca, and land left to his wife. The executors were James Fitch and Nathaniel Benedict.  Witness: Samuel Jarvis, Benjamin Isaacs and John Gregory, Jr. (No mention of sons William or John Bartlett  in his will.)


                Inventory of John Bartlett 's property dated 25 August 1761 by Joseph Platt and Matthew Keeler. Totaled Á1426-11-2 of which Á1222 was for land homestead, Out Meadows and shipyard, Hoyt lot and Rockwell Field, Middle Clabbord Hill, Lower Clabbord Hill, Rockwell Hill Farm, Brook Lot, Bartlett's Ridge and near Kellogg Ridge.

Levi Hanford went to Walton, N.Y. in 1808, and was still living there in 1881 when he was in his ninetieth year.


                To Walton also had come the aged John Benedict 4th, the first male child barn in Canaan Parish.  He had lived there but three years and died two years before the sixteen year old Levi Hanford arrived to make his permanent home there.




                The old Red House is the only dwelling for about a mile south of the Hoyt homestead, but beyond that  on both sides of the road you will find homes of the Hanfords all descended from Elizabeth Haynes Hanford, daughter of that William Haynes who gave his name to Haynes Ridge.  There on the west side, opposite "the road to the mille", the present Lakeview Avenue, is the dwelling soon (in 1830 ) to be demolished, built by Theophilus Hanford, the pioneer from Norwalk, where his grandchildren, Joseph and Bartlett, were born.  A few rods north is Bartlett Hanford's house, for many years in later times to be known as the Jackson Raymond place (at present belonging to Mr. A.B. Walker.)


                Perhaps you will meet old Eben Hanford coming out of his home at the foot of the hill to take the sun.   Once a soldier in the Revolution, now he shuffles along on two canes, raising one now and then to kill  only a golden butterfly.  You should have to plod half a mile farther to find the house erected by Capt. Samuel Hanford, an early comer from Norwalk.  "The Little House at Four Corners" of Mrs. Willard Parker's book.  Opposite is the home of Samuel Hanford, Jr. which is to descend to his staunch Methodist son, Capt. Holly Hanford.


                If you would keep to the highway you will have to return as you came, for there is no cross road as yet.  But there is not much more to be on the village Main Street; only Samuel Raymond's house (where Dr. White now lives) and then not a single building on the west side from  Keeler's wagon shop all the way back to Meeting House Hill, except the home and little silversmith shop of Edward Nash just north of where the First National Bank and Trust Company now stands.


                If you were by any chance taking your walk on a certain Sunday afternoon in 1816, there would indeed  be something to see; smoke and flames pouring out of the Nash home, and poor Mr. and Mrs. Nash  coming home from the Episcopal Church, a mile away up the ridge, to find their home in ruins.


                But it is not likely that you would be so irreligious as to be strolling about for pleasure on the Sabbath.  There is not much more of interest on Main Street.  Moreover, keeping to the road would not insure good walking - merely a clear track for highway.  Not only are there no sidewalks as yet but the little lads you meet in the course of your walk will have to live to a ripe old age if they are ever to enjoy such a luxury.




                So suppose you cut across the woods and fields about where Church Street now runs to White Oak Shade Ridge, the present Park Street. Walking north to return to the Meeting House, you will pass, on your left, the home of Colonel Ezra Benedict (the Mead House), while on your right nearly opposite is the house built long ago by Trowbridge Benedict, who there did clock and watch repairing and silversmithing. (The original part of the Ardsley Inn).  Next on your left is the substantial home of Dr. Noyes, with whom you must become better acquainted.


                You are now in the region of the future railroad station, gas station, electromatic automobile signal; but none of these casts its shadows upon the wagon track you are treading.  Past the hip-roofed house of Joel Hoyt, the harness maker, and up the hill, with its new Academy on your right in the present

Community School grounds, and on your left the little red schoolhouse. LMHW.


B-8         Samuel Bartlett (2) b. 17 April 1723 Norwalk, CT, d. 16 Nov. 1762 at Goshen, NY, but is buried at Norwalk, CT, m. ca. 1744 probably at Norwalk or Stamford, CT, Mercy Seeley (Seyley, Seely), b. 19 April 1723 Stamford, CT, dau. of Ebenezer Seeley and Mercy Dean. Information on the Seeley family will follow the Bartlett data. Samuel Bartlett and Mercy Seeley had seven children before his death in 1762 and these births are recorded at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Norwalk, CT. These are baptismal dates and two are not recorded. After Samuel Bartlett’s (B-8) death, Mercy m. 2nd Huff and had a son, name unknown, and a daughter Abigail who m. in 1786 Joshua Reeves, b. 1746 Southhold, L. I, N.Y, d. 1812 Romulus N.Y.

                William Bartlett (C-1) and Hannah Bartlett (C-2) were twins, but since she died very soon, the next child Hannah Bartlett (C-3) was given the same name.


                Haynes, Ebenezer and William Bartlett all served in the Revolutionary War. It is possible that Samuel also served but no research was done to locate him.


                Much of the research done on William Bartlett (C-1) b. 11 Oct. 1750 was done by one of his descendants Mrs. Lulu Reed Boss of Maysville, Ky. who had spent 20 years looking for the parents of her ancestor. In all her years of searching she was never able to learn the name of his first wife, who was the mother of his ten children, but she did collect considerable information on the Bartlett family of Kentucky, some of which I will copy, but I am sure that most of her information will be found in some Historical Society in Kentucky. I was able to supply her with the “missing link” in the Bartlett family and she had research done in Norwalk, Conn. to finish the Bartlett line back to our common ancestor John Bartlett  (A-1). Mrs. Boss of Maysville, Mason Co. Ky. belonged to the National Society of Daughters of 1812, River Raisin Chapter, No. 14,782, State No. 212, admitted 27 June 1949 on William Bartlett's service in War of 1812.  He entered the service on 30th day of Sept. 1812 and appears on the rolls in other regiments.LMHW.


Will of Joseph Hildreth


                   "Will Of Joseph Hildreth of Wythe Co, VA "In the name of God Amen: I Joseph Hildreth of the county of Wythe and State of Virginia, being very weak in body but of perfect mind and memory, think it proper to make my will. I sumit my soul to God in humble hope, my body to be interred at the discretion of my executors.

                   As to my worldly estate I dispose of it in manner following: All my lands I devise to my son Jeffery in fee simple. All my personal estate I vest in my executors to be sold as the law directs and after my debts are paid out of the produce, the balance to be divided in manner and form following.

To my daughter ABIGAIL, five shillings; to my Daughter ANNA, five shillings; to my son, John, five shillings; to my daughter, Sarah five shillings; to my daughter Ruth, five shillings; to my daughter, Polly, five shillings; to my daughter Pheby, five shillings; to my daughter Keturah, twenty pounds.

I appoint my son Jeffery Hildreth and Robert Adams executors hereof and request them to take the burden of the same upon them.

In testimony hereof I have here unto set my hand this Twenty fourth day of January. one thousand seven hundred ninty-two.

Signed by the testator and published as his last will in the presence of Ruben Coley....Thomas Venderly......Henry (X) Umbarger.

                   At a court for the county of Wythe on Tuesday the 11th day of August 1792. The last will and testament of Joseph Hildreth, dec. was exhibited in court and proven by the oaths of Ruben Coley and Henry Umbarger, the witnesses thereto and thereupon it is ordered to be recorded."




C-1         William Bartlett (3) b. 11 Oct. 1750 New Canaan, CT; d. 1820 Nicholas Co. Ky, bur. Hammond Cemetery; m. 1) unknown, 2) Phebe Hildreth Buchannon, widow of James Buchannan, who d. 19 Aug. 1782, and daughter of Joseph Hildreth. In the letter written by John Bartlett, son of Enos Bartlett, on p19, John states that " He recollects William Bartlett married two sisters." According to the will of Joseph Hildreth, above, Pheby had these sisters: Abigail, Anna, Sarah, Ruth, Polly, and Keturah. Seems like a good project for several years of research in Virginia. JM.

"Battle of Blue Licks" by Samuel M. Wilson. Sent to me by Mrs. Louise Crain Bartlett, whose husband is a descendant of William Bartlett.

                “ On June 25, 1787 James Parberry, then of Henry Co, Va. conveyed to James Buchanan of Bourbon Co.  one half of the entire tract of 450 acres and on Feb. 22, 1816, Phoebe Buchanan, widow and relict of James Buchanan, deceased and James Buchanan, Jr, heir in law of said James Buchanan deceased, with Mary Buchanan his wife, convey this half interest to William Bartlett of Nicholas Co. Ky.

                In the fall of 1815 or the winter of 1815-1816 William Bartlett undertook to survey and lay off a town at the Blue Licks by the name of Bartlettsburg and in the month of March 1816, held a public sale of the lots so laid off.  The original plot of this town was offered for record in the County Court of Nicholas Co. on Oct. 28, 1817, but being later amended was not regularly recorded until Nov. 28, 1817. Out of this enterprise and certain controversies which it developed respecting the rights of lot and land owners claiming under Bartlett on the one side and Major George M. Bedinger on the other side in the use of the salt springs on the North and South side of the Licking at the Blue Licks, arose a protracted law suit which was instituted in the Nicholas Circuit Court in the year 1821 by Major George M. Bedinger as the complainant against William’s, Radford, Whittenmore and Ballingall and the heirs of William Bartlett (who had previously died) and which finally reached the Court of Appeals, by which it was decided adversley to Bedinger on 31 Oct. 1829.


Carlisle Mercury Newspaper.  Nicholas Co. Ky.   23 Sept., 1926. The Famous Blue Lick Springs, noted throughout Dixieland and far into the North, as being in its time the most fashionable summer resort in the South, has been the subject of litigation in the Courts of Kentucky for many years.  William Bartlett, a rugged pioneer from Va., stopped at Stonier Creek, Bourbon Co...... he followed a buffalo trail and located at Blue Lick Springs, secured a grant of an extensive body of land from Virginia State Government, which included the famous Blue Licks Springs.  With his wife, son and son-in-law James Buchanan, lived at the springs and made salt.  He divided a part of this land into town lots, built cabins and called it "Bartlettsburg".

                The hearing of this case will come up in the November Term of Court for possession of this, the most historic Springs, in the United States, the home site of the first and only genuine Blue Licks Springs, which was originally granted to William Bartlett.

                Once, each year Kentucky pauses to commemorate the last battle of the Revolutionary War, which was staged at Blue Lick Springs in Nicholas Co. on August 19, 1782.  The ceremony is held on the site where 58 pioneers and patriots were slain by a force of 240 Indians of six tribes and a number of Canadian troops under command of Capt. Elm Caldwell.

                This spot is now a State Park and there is a shaft there erected by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, with the names of the pioneers who lost their lives in what is considered the last battle of the Revolutionary War.


This is a story told by Thelma Sampson Standiford (Mrs. JA) as told by her paternal grandfather, Henry Bishop Sampson b. 1824. I had much correspondence with Thelma and really enjoyed her letters which were full of information on the area and the Bartlett family". LMHW.


                "William Bartlett Pioneer once owned all the land that could be seen from the top of the hill above Lincoln Abnee’s. This land included the Famous Blue Lick Springs and that Mr. Bartlett deeded it to the next owners reserving one half interest which he deeded to the public. This water had valuable minerals in it and was bottled and sold. Anyone could go and drink all they wanted and take a jug home with them. This property changed hands several times and finally came into possession of a man who sold all of the water, even by the glass, at five cents a glass. In the late 1800, early 1900's the water began to cease flowing. Some people thought it (the fracture) was a providential matter, others that there was a fault and the water was flowing into the Licking River. A $500 reward was offered to anyone who could find the cause of the failing water. No one ever found the cause. My maternal grandfather Thomas Wilson Hunter began excavating about the spring. About 20 feet below ground he found bones of buffalo, deer and elk, also a tusk 8 ft. long.  He was given the bones for his trouble". She also stated she lived in sight of the Blue Licks, and walked to grade school around Blue Lick Springs and attended church there. She visited the Hammond graveyard May 5, 1948 and found what was a cemetery with eleven native stones marking graves on the farm of W.L. McLean.  There were two trees, a cedar and an elm on either end. One stone had H.H. carved by hand, Oct. 31, possibly 59 and one J.V., also "Pioneer William Bartlett" d. Feb. 1821 (This date is not right and should be 1820.) Misdated stone placed there during litigations.

                Mrs. Jessie Hughes said that her grandfather Buchanan is buried in the small burying ground as William Bartlett (d. 1820). James Buchanan died during the last battle of the Revolutionary War August 19, 1782 at Blue Lick Springs, Ky. She also told about all kinds of trouble between the Bartletts and Buchanans over property left by William Bartlett. The Kentucky legislature finally settled the matter.


Excerpts from letters written to Lulu Reed Boss by John Bartlett  b. 1853, d. 1936 who lived at Salt Lick, Ky. for a time. He was a great grandson of Pioneer William. These letters were dated 21 Feb. 1936, 26 Feb. 1936 and 7 March 1936:

                "My father called William Bartlett granddad. My grandfather's name was Samuel Bartlett. Samuel had a brother Ebenezer. My dad always told me that William Bartlett owned Blue Licks and several thousand acres of land around Blue Licks, including the place he is buried, which is about three miles from the Licks on what is now called the Hammond farm. I have been to the grave of William Bartlett many times ...... on his tombstone is this simple inscription "William Bartlett, Pioneer, died 1820".


                William Bartlett was making salt at the Licks at the time of the Battle of Blue Licks and my dad spoke of William Bartlett as having been a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and that at the Battle he and several others saved their scalps by swimming the river right fernenst the battle ground and hid in a fallen tree top ..... the  Indians passed near but did not see them.


                The Bartlett Mansion on the Hammond farm is well preserved in the yard is an old style anvil, my dad said it was part of William Bartlett's old ship. I have in my possession William Bartlett's arithmetic and slate. The arithmetic is "Smiley's" .... I learned my "Figgers" from it. The slate is a large one with whangs securely tied across the corners .... on it is the cost mark in shillings and pence. I first saw this slate 80 years ago.


                My Dad was born in 1818 (Note: He was son of Enos, son of Samuel, son of Wm. d. 1820). My dad told me William Bartlett came from Virginia to the mountains of Kentucky when Kentucky was still a part of Virginia. He founded a Salt spring on Goose Creek, bought a lot of ground there and made salt, calling it "Goose Creek Salt Works".  Later he removed to Blue Licks, bought a lot of land there and made salt. He leased his land and salt well to parties Holidays as I remember the name ….  lease to run 100 years. I lived many years in Kansas and while there the Bartlett's made up a purse to investigate our claim. The envoy sent on this mission was S.J. Bartlett of Fredonia, Kansas. This was about the year 1886. S.J. Bartlett reported he found 1,000 acres of land in William Bartlett's name. When Richmond burned all records were destroyed and the statute of limitations and taxes together with adverse claimants had extinguished the Bartlett claim. 7 March 1936. John Bartlett age 84 states there were several daughters in the family of William Bartlett. One married George Swart and he mentioned "Aunt Betsy Herndon and Floyd Herndon”.  He recollects William Bartlett married two sisters.

In Testimony whereof I set my hand and seal this 30th day of October A.D. 1843.


(Signed) Ebenezer BARTLETT

Will of Ebenezer Seeley Bartlett was proven Dec. 1843.

                A note from Mrs. Alice Evarts Hurd, widow of Samuel W. Widney of Denver, Colo.  "Ebenezer Bartlett and wife Rebecca Standiford left Nicholas Co. Ky. ca. 1828-30 and went to Springfield, IL, where they lived four years, and then to Pike Co. IL, where they stayed two years and finally to Hancock Co. IL, where he owned a grist and saw mill and died there”. -LMHW.


                In 1818, an Ebeneezer Bartlett, of Salem, Massachusetts, received a warrant on land in McDonough county, in the Miltary Land Bounty section of west Illinois: SE  S19,  4N, 2W,  N. 4th PM (160 acres), for his service in the War of 1812, 9th Infantry, US Army (Capt. Turner Crooker’s Company), in the Battle of Chippewa; he sold it immediately in Washington DC. This land is on Grindstone Creek, a tributary to the LaMoine River, south of Macomb. I don't know if this was the same Ebeneezer.

                Ebeneezer (D-1) is in the taxes of Nicholas co, from their beginning in 1800 until 1826; he is in the 1830 Census of  Fleming co KY, p16, signed off 27 November.

                On 25 October 1830, Eb bought Lot #4, Block 31, in the town of Springfield (7th and Madison), Sangamon county, Illinois, which he sold on 3 Aug. 1833. On May 16, 1831 Eb homesteaded 80 acres in the southern part of town, the S½, NE¼, S6, T15N, R5W; he sold this to John Crowder, brother of his son-in-law Albert Crowder, Oct. 14, 1834.

                Eb's son Frank was married to Lydia Karges in Pike county to the west on 6 Jan.1834. On March 12, 1834, Aquilla Hildreth, Eb's son-in-law by his daughter Elizabeth, received his patent on the NW¼ of  S32, T3S, R2W, which he sold to Frank Bartlett in May 1834; 1835 is the earliest date Aquilla had a child born in Illinois. In 1836, Eb sold the NW¼ of the NE¼, T3S, R2W, next door; in 1840 he received another patent on the same land, and his son Henry J. received one for the ¼¼  to the east. Eb is listed there in the 1840 Census with his son Frank J. This land is just south of Chambersburg.

                In September 1837, his son Henry J. was married in Hancock co to the north, his daughter Malinda was married there in 1838; Aquilla Hildreth received a patent on land in Section 1, R5W, T5N in 1840. At the same time, Eb and Frank received patents there, in Hancock township, about 4 miles northwest of the town of Colmar. Frank’s deed says he was in Pike county at the time. This land is on the Lemoine river, next to a grist mill then owned by Samuel Brown. Frank was owner of a mill, on Crooked Creek, where he sawed wood and ground wheat. His neighbors in the 1840 Census are the same ones listed as local homesteaders; these people were the pioneers in the area. Eb died 2 Dec. 1843, and is most likely buried either in the Bloyd/Belknap, or the Brown cemeteries, which have many unmarked graves.

                Information on the following descendants of Samuel Bartlett (D-2), the second son of William Bartlett, was supplied by Mrs. B.F. (Louise Crain) Bartlett of Paris, Ky, Mrs. Arch (Laura Bartlett) Lutes, whom I tried to correspond with in 1958, 1959, but due to her age and being the youngest of his children did not know the older members of the family, and Margaret Bartlett Cole who I corresponded with in 1960. There is confusion here as exact number of children, names, etc. is not known. Some Census data is given. LMHW.



D-2         Samuel Bartlett (4) b. 1780 in VA, d. 1859 Nicholas co, KY; m. ca. 1797, Mary (Margaret) Tully (Tulley), b. 1777 Maryland. He was in the Nicholas co. taxes, on the Bartlett property, on the Licking river, from their beginning in 1800; taxed $70 in 1855, $40 in 1856, $50 in 1857, listed but not taxed in 1858 and 1859, not listed thereafter. Analysis of Census records through 1850 indicate 7 boys and 3 girls. No will or settlement was found.
