Elijah Bartow Sr. and Charity Leverage had Elijah Jr. 1821, Ohio; Elijah Jr. md Margaret Brown 21 Mar 1845.They had Robert Bartow, Apr. 1850.
As a matter of interesting family history, Cyrus the brother of Elijah Jr. went to Van Buren Co., Iowa.His sons Cyrus Jr. and John were both killed in the Civil war.
Yes, I believe the historical Bartow family of NY and NJ are the ancestors of our Bartow's.I believe our Elijah Sr. had a brother Zenas and a brother Francis.(Note the names of two of his sons).
Need to be further research on Francis Bartow and Clement Morris of Suffolk, NY and Zenas Bartow of Somerset, NJ 1789. My thinking is Elijah Sr. was born after 1750.He would betoo oldto father Elijah Jr 1821, don't you think?
