We now have a 12/12 match between a descendant of James BARTLETT 1760-1823 m Tempy WHITLOCK (they lived in Patrick Co, VA) and Joseph BARTLETT c1767-1830 1m c1785 Henry Co, VA ? SIMS and lived in Overton Co, TN.The 25-marker tests show some mutations, so we're still looking for the common ancestor.These DNA results clearly show that this group is not related to the BARTLETTs from the Rappahannock River area of VA.
3 more individual male BARTLETT descendants from Colonial VA BARTLETT lines have now signed up.
We are also looking for male descendants of the BERKLEYs of Loudoun Co, VA and the BARTLETTs who wound up in Grayson Co, VA to participate with a DNA sample (obtained by cheek swab).
Male BARTLETTs from New England BARTLETT lines are also encouraged to participate - both to determine links among the various New England lines, as well as to check for links to VA and other BARTLETT lines - perhaps in England.
Soon our results will be posted on the BARTLETT web page.
