John Bartlett married Lucy Turner (in Halifax Co., VA?)
In his will dated 5 October 1795 in Halifax County, Virginia, William Turner named among his heirs his son-in-law John Bartlett, widower of William’s daughter Lucy. I have seen only an abstract of the will, so I can’t quote the exact phrasing.
Can anyone tell me more about this John Bartlett? Or when and where John and Lucy married?
None of William Turner’s other five daughters seems to have been married, so it would seem that the children are fairly young. Lucy may have died soon after her marriage. That suggests that John Bartlett would probably also have been young and would have married again.
