I read your posting on Genforum regarding the BARTHOLOW family.Your Benjamin BARTHOLOW was my G.G. Granduncle.He was brother to my G.G. Grandmother, Lydia BARTHOLOW, and one of 12 children born to William BARTHOLOW and Elizabeth LAKIN.
I am information on this BARTHOLOW family back to the original patriarch of the family who came to the U.S. from the Alsace Lorraine area in approx 1730.
I also have information on the family of Benjamin's mother Elizabeth LAKIN going back to Abraham LAKIN who was born in LAKINS Heath, England in 1695 and immigrated to the U.S.Actually it was a British Colony at the time.
Both of these families have been here in North America since British Colonial times and members of both families fought in the Revoluntionary War.
I am willing to share any information I have with you.If you are interested, please contact me.
