One of my lines married into the Bartlett line. The daughter of Michael Bartlett, bn 1790, VT who was the son of Josiah Bartlett and Mary Barton, who's name was Cynthia Bartlett married William James Ellingsworth on September 10, 1861, Davenport, Scott Co., IA.He moved from the East to Rock Island, IL and also settling in IA.
