John E. Bartlett In 1859 delegates to the Opposition Convention from Macon County, Ga. included J. E. Bartlett. William H. Robinson, the man from whom Sterling Bartlett (see Sterling Bartlett report)bought land in 1848, was a politician in Macon County, supported strongly by a John E. Bartlett around 1860. He appears to be connected to Abner and Mary Bartlet of Monticello (Jasper Co.) Georgia.John E. Bartlett married Elizabeth A. Lewis in Macon County on August 13,1844 (then Houston County.)They were on the 1860 Macon County census.He was born 1824 in Georgia.They had three children, all girls.He was also listed on the 1852 tax list owning 1083 acres in Macon County, and 40 acres in Cobb.He was evidently the administrator de bonis non of Elizabeth Roby, because that is noted under his name in the tax list.In the Taylor County Deed book B, page 404, he sold 1183 acres (note that 100 acres has been added) of land to James S. Owen of Talbot County on July 19, 1860.The lots were #169, #170, and part of #171.The exact same information was recorded in the Macon County records also, leading us to believe that this land was close to the border of Taylor and Macon counties.Dr. John E. Bartlett was killed by Theodorick L. Montfort, esquire, in Oglethorpe in November 1862.Was it a duel?This was reported in the Millegeville, Ga. Newspaper Clippings, Vol. 9, page 73.
