Carl Wilhelm BARTELT b. 1822 PRUSSIA
I have been looking for information on my 2 x g grandfather,Carl Wilhelm BARTELT.I have always believed that his name was Charles Frederick William BARTLETT, which is what my father told me.Apparently, again from my Dad, he was born Wollein, Prussia on 12 Sep 1822.I know nothing of his family at all.He married here in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, a lady named Isabella CARMICHAEL 18 Apr 1854.They had several children, some with German spelling, but all of them eventually adopted the BARTLETT anglised name. It seems Carolina Elizabeth b.1856 was named after her maternal g'mother, Carolina Amelia CAMPBELL, but this baby was born in Ballarat, Vic.Others were Charles William b. 1858, James Campbell 1859, Henery Herman b. 1861 and a girl b. 1863.All of these were born in Hobart, Tasmania.If anyone is able to give me any information or ideas, I would be very grateful.I have been told there was no such place as Wollein.Is anyone able to tell me anything which might sound like this place.
