Perhaps I have found some missing Bartlett's for whom you are looking.The other day I found five in the 1860 census of Jackson Co., MO.I suspect that their ancestors were from Floyd Co., VA.I'll give their census data, and then try to explain why I suspect that they might have Floyd Co., VA connections.A few minutes ago, I noted on the GenForum some Bartlett's who came to Cass Co. and Platte Co. MO.These three above-mentioned counties are contiguous.
Bartlett, L., New Santa Fe Township, age 19 MO in Wm. Gray family.
Bartlett, Margaret, City of Kansas City, age 71 MO.
Bartlett, Robert, City of Independence, age 12 MO in L. Hall family.
Bartlett, Reuben, City of Blue Springs, age 24 Laborer MO.
Bartlett, William, City of Blue Springs, age 22 Laborer MO in A. Harris family.
The "A. Harris" would have been Amos Harris, and his mother was Elizabeth (Gray) Harris from Floyd Co., VA.Elizabeth was the second wife of my ggg grandfather, Reuben Harris.
Ten of the twelve children of Reuben Harris and his first wife, Margaret McAlexander--my ggg grandmother, came to Jackson Co. in 1830 from Patrick Co., VA, and eventually each settled with their families in one of the three above-mentioned counties.My ggg grandmother, Margaret, never arrived in Jackson Co., either dying on the trip in late 1830 or right before they started.Marriage records of Floyd Co., VA show that Reuben Harris married Elizabeth Gray in Floyd Co., VA on Sep 23, 1832.So, he either came to Jackson Co. in 1830 with the children by his first wife, and went back for Elizabeth in 1832.Or, he didn't accompany these children, but first arrived in Jackson Co. with his second wife, Elizabeth, before the birth of their first child in 1833.
Either way, a theory of mine is that some of these Bartlett's in the Kansas City area may have accompanied Reuben and Elizabeth (Gray) Harris back to Jackson Co. before the birth of their first son, James Howard Jackson Harris, on July 15, 1833 in Jackson Co., MO.
