Hi again, Betty, I just re-read your message.If Sarah was a daughter of the "Reuben S." Bartlett who was born in 1817, she could not have married in 1827.I suspect that she was the daughter of the older Reuben Bartlett mentioned in the last paragraph above.As you can see, he was still in Va. in the 1850 census.It is VERY possible that he was related to the younger Reuben S. Bartlett who came to Ga.Note also, that another reader added that the older Reuben did NOT die in Georgia...a clerk's error recorded "Reuben" rather than the correct name. The "Riley" surname intrigues me also, as I have seen that name along with the Bartlett surname in S.C. Do you have any idea at all where your Bartletts lived before Montgomery County, Va.? Where did Nancy King marry George Riley Bartlett? For which state did he serve in the Civil War? This will be fun to try to untangle, and I will be glad to keep you posted.Right now I have posted all I know.Any more clues will be helpful.
