My Caroline Bartlett was born in OH in 1818 and married in Greenup Co., KY to Thomas Jefferson Ellington, moving to Platte Co., MO in the late 1830's.
She is connected by marriage to Renfro, Neal, West, Brown, Gentry, Creek.It is possible her name was Bartley since a James Bartley lived near Thomas Ellington's parents' homein 1820 in Greenup Co., KY.
It is also possible that her maiden name was Barnett since her son Richard B. Ellington had that name tacked onto him in a newspaper article - possibly incorrect for Bartlett.
I'm wondering if Caroline's name might have been Mary Caroline or Susan Caroline - both of which I find in these families.
The Bartlett Association has said they cannot locate someone by this name in OH or KY at that time.
