Anyone know about this Elizabeth "Betsy" Bartlett b. abt. 1787 Harrison Co, VA, daughter of Thomas Bartlett & Sarah ??
5) David CLEAVENGER, the second son, and third child of Samuel and Margaret (??Ramsey ?? Vanort) Cleavenger, was born c. 1784 in Frederick County, VA. He was married in Monongalia County, VA, by Rev. Joshua Hickman, on 20 Dec 1809, to Elizabeth "Betsy" BARTLETT, born c. (?) 1784-1787, in Harrison County, VA, a d/o Thomas and Sarah Bartlett. David and "Betsy" sold in 1819, in Harrison County, VA, their share of the land, that David along with his brothers, had inherited from his father. Between 1820 and 1830, David and Betsy left Harrison County, and went "West" to what is current day Tyler County, WV (then Wood County, VA). It is unknown when or where he died, but he appears in the 1840 Wood County, VA, Census; I can find neither he nor Betsy in the 1850 Census in what is now West Virginia; however, Elizabeth Cleavenger, a widow, age 68, and born Harrison County, VA, a d/o Thomas Bartlett, was remarried in Tyler County, VA, on 4 Aug 1855, to George R. McGeorge, a widower and son of Thomas, born about 1785, in Scotland. Thus David died between the 1840 Census and 1855, when his spouse remarried. I do not know where or when Elizabeth "Betsy" (Bartlett) Cleavenger McGeorge died; even though George McGEORGE had a large family by his first spouse, I cannot find any McGeorge's in the 1860 Census in what is now West Virginia; thus, presumably, they left West Virginia between 1855 and 1860. In the 1810 Monongalia County Census, Elizabeth is listed as age 26-<45; this would make a birth year of c. 1784; however, when she remarried in 1855, she is listed as age 68, which would yield a birth year of c. 1787, and this would make her about age 23, in 1810.
The children of David and Elizabeth "Betsy" (Bartlett) Cleavenger were:
*5a) Male Cleavenger b.c. 1810 -
*5b) Sarah Cleavenger b.c. 1810 -

note: George McGeorge ended up in Lincoln Co, Missouri by the 1860 Census (widower) living with his son, David McGeorge & wife, Mary E. McGee (d/o Josia McGee & Artimacy Hiller).David McGeorge later settled in the area of Ralls Co, Missouri near the Pike Co, MO county line.
This was in the same area as the Strothers & Glascocks of which are descendants of the Bartletts also (Reuben Strother & Susannah Bartlett).
