In your post you were wondering about the origin of the Bartholic(k) name. I found out that it is of English origin. My father Arthur W. Bartholic of CO mentioned to my mother many many years ago that the Bartholics are decendents of the House of Tudor. Considering I don't know my English history I'm unable to expound on that piece of info. Many of us have been able to go back to RI in the 1600's but no able to get beyond that (so far-not giving up yet)to find when they immigrated and where from. I've tried looking into Welsh records a bit but no luck. E-mail me anytime.
