I am descended from Horatio Bartow, born in 1844 (son of Eliphas Bartow) from Macoupin County, Illinois, who in about 1882 moved to Thayer County, Nebraska. Horatio's daughter, Laura Jane Bartow, was my maternal great grandmother.
The only Charles I have was Charles Nelson Bartow, son of Horatio, born in Shipman, Macoupin County, IL in 1880. He moved with the family to Nebraska in about 1882, and died after 1930 (He is listed with the family in the 1930 Thayer County, NE census.)
I am also trying to find Bartow family connections, especially the parents of Eliphas Bartow. At least one researcher has him as the son of William John Bartow of Westchester, NY, but I have found no other real support for this information to date. Do you or anyone have more information on this family connection?
