Thank you for your quick reply! I doubt civil war records are my John, as the family is sure he died in 1856. What else do you have? His sons, John and Albert were 'bound out' by their mother to Samuel Vincent of Wyoming, Iowa, Wisconsin and show on the 1860 Census with him.
Is your John the 34 yr old miner from Eng. in Mineral Point's 1860 Census with wife Mary and 4 children?In 1850, Dogdeville, Iowa, Wisc., 28 yr old miner from Eng., John is with wife Elizabeth and 4 other children.
In 1850 in TWP #4, Tuolumne Co., Calif. John E. Bartle is listed as 28 yr. old miner form Eng.
