Carol; I hope you're still watching the posts and researching.I've been working on the several folks who were born in Frederick Co, VA in the 1820s, and I think I've figured your's out.
Your Thomas BARTLETT b 1827 Frederick Co, VA; d 1907 Warren Co, IN per his Obit.I've now looked at the Pers Prop Tax Lists for Frederick Co, VA and the only BARTLETTs there were Henry and his son William (from the Spotsylvania Co, VA BARTLETTs - and we know their descendants) and a different (they were in different enumeration districts of Fred Co) William BARTLETT who was there 1816-19 and 1822-29 (I can't find him 1820-21) and he was in the Frederick Co, VA 1820 census 211210-12010.William BARTLETT had moved to Montgomery Co, VA by the 1830 census 11100001-00011001 which shows a son b 1825-30.Since William BARTLETT is the only one who could have fathered Thomas in 1827 Frederick Co, then Thomas must be the 1825-30 son in the Montgomery Co, VA 1830 census.William BARTLETT is the oldest son of Gardner BARTLETT d 1811 Montgomery Co, VA, so it's still the same family, just a shift in one ancestor.
Please let me know what you think...Do you have any hard evidence that Thomas b 1827 was the son of Thomas b 1790?
The BARTLETT-DNA Project has been a great success - we've linked some folks and unlinked a few others, and found some focused research directions that may well lead to other breakthroughs.We're trying to get some folks from Europe to participate...We'd really like to get a male BARTLETT descendant from the Gardner BARTLETT line.One DNA sample would represent the whole line (although for other lines we've tried to get 2-3, just to be sure), and it would go back to the BERKLEYs in Loudoun and Westmoreland Co, VA - if our research is right.Some of the descendants of Gardner's grandfather (William BERKLEY) went to KY (and other points west) - we're working on a DNA sample from one of them and if it matches DNA from Gardner's line we will have "proved" the paper research!!!Let me know - I'm the DNA Project Admin and our project has a discount.
