I have lived in Bartlett, Illinois for ten years and have been looking for more information about its history than the village readily provides.
According to the Village of Bartlett: Mr. Luther Bartlett was a native of Conway Massachusetts, came to Illinois by way of Michigan in 1844, and owned the original 40 acre town site (which he used as a "woodlot" for buidling materials and fire wood), allowed the railroad to come through and have a depot, he had a wife and a brother???
Do you have any information regarding Luther Bartlett of Conway Massachusetts that Bartlett Illinois was named after?
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!
