Hi Gale: You really seem to have done a lot of research with Bartow. My fateral grandmother's maiden name was Bartow and she lived in the state of New York all her life. She lived to be 97 but my problem is tracing her roots. She married Lester Lear, my grandfather who died when I was ten and I can't find him anywhere. If I can make a connection between these two names I may find out more about her which is part of my discovery process for my family album. I am really stuck. Can you help?
