UPDATE on my grandfather HENRY BARTLETT. Ordered the 1880 Bartlett Soundex for New York and found my grandfather William "Henry"BARTLETT living in the Canton, St Lawrence Co., New York Childrens Home. Several of his sisterswere there also; Malinda BARTLETT age 6, Mary J BARTLETT age 7 and Minie BARTLETT age 9. Also on the 1880 St.Lawrence Co.New York at PostsdamI found: HIRAM BARTLETT 36(34?)M b NY,works in sawmill. Fanny, age 22, born Canada Daniel, age 1 (first wife Sarah must have died before 1880). With help from a lady who had the St.Lawrence Co.New York 1870 censusrecords,she found at Parishville: HIRAM BARTLETT,age 24,b NY, father foreign born ,citizen SARAH,age 22, born Canada CYNTHIA, age 8, b NY MARGARET, age 5, b NY CORA M,age 2, b NY WILLIAM H, age 3/12, b NY in Feb 1870 (is this HENRY BARTLETT?) So his name was William HENRY Bartlett and not Henry Benjamin. His father HIRAM BARTLETT was in the Civil War, serving with the "H"Co.,NY 92nd Infantry;mustered on 3Nov1861 at Potsdam,New York. He was discharged for disability on 24April1862 at Washington, D.C. Perhaps he was wounded?? There was also a Hiram Bartlett who enlisted in 1863 in the New York 14th Artillery. In addition, I found that New York passed a law in 1875 which placed all children 2 years and over from poorhouses and almshouses in to childrens homes. Is it possible the second wife did not want these children?? Have sent for HIRAM BARTLETT's Civil War Military and Pension records in hopes these will help piece my grandpa's life together. If anyone has heard of any of these names mentioned, please contact me. As far as I can tell my descendancy is: Possible Peter Bartlett b1808 Canada. Hiram Bartlett b ca 1846 NY Sarah Carter b 1848 in Canada Henry Bartlett b 1870 St.Lawrence Co. New York Edmond Everett Bartlett b1901 in Laramie,WY Evelyn Bartlett Flood,myself, in Laramie,WY DON'T EVER GIVE UP SEARCHING FOR YOUR LOVED ONES.
