I believe I can tell you a little about where these men went. This is one of my husband's lines that I am just now beinging to delve into. I must say though, some on the info I have in confusing, especailly when I go back to NC and VA and the 1700 and 1600's.
Here is what I know: My husband's great-grandfather was Benjamin Franklin Bartlett, b. 18 Feb 1900 in Chattooga Co., GA; died 16 Aug 1983 in Etowah Co., AL
Ben's father was: Blake N. Bartlett, b. Dec. 1856 in Chattooga Co., GA. He married Permalia Ann Meadows and Autney Catlett. (I am having some difficulty determining which one of these ladies is Ben's mother. I have info that says both, but I know that can't be true.)
Blake N. Bartlett's father was: Nathan Bartlett,b. March 1824, GA, and died 4 Aug 1896 in Chattooga Co., GA. He married Emaline Tomlin, 14 Nov. 1850 in Newton Co., GA
Nathan's father was: W. Blake Bartlett, b. 1800, NC; died bef 1880. He married Catherine Williams, 31 May 1822 in Jones Co., GA. I have seen another date for this marriage: 13 Jan 1822.
As you can see, the further back I go, my info gets sketchy and confusing. But, these are who I believe to be my husband's other ancestors, in order:
James Blake Joshua William William William William Michael
I do have a little info on the descendants of Benjaming Franklin Bartlett in you are interested.
