i have a ggrandfather named samuel ellsworth bartlett, born in 1826 (place unk) who married a maria elizabeth webber and lived in cattaraugus county, town of yorkshire. they had at least one son named james emmett bartlett born 1875 and who married olive lucinda bump in or around machias, new york around 1902 who had, among others, my father, burdette bartlett. maria elizabeths' father was levi webber of yorkshire, cattaraugus, new york and maria died there in 1888 predeceasing her husban, samuel. i lose track of him from there, and it is possible that he remained in yorkshire util he, too, died, though i cannot find him (conclusively) the local cemeteries thereabout.
while your dexter is not likely to be my samuels' father, he could be his uncle or possibly even a brother. i do know that my fathers' people arecentered around cattaraugus and wyoming and genessee counties in new york state and possibly came to ny from mass.
i have been looking for the parents and other relatives to my samuel ellsworth. if you have info that would be helpful possibly we could collaborate and make these ties together. i am going to email you with this posting as well as posting it here, just to make sure we get together. email me or post to me if you can help. thanks~ tom bartlett
