I have noted in my database that Benjamin Bartlett's will was proved August 8, 1789 in Darlington Dist., SC.Known children of Benjamin were: Zilpha, Sarah, Thomas, James, and Rebecca.Many of these Bartletts moved to Dale Co., AL in the early 1800's.I do not have any information on Thomas' or James' descendents.It might be worth trying to find out who their descendents were.You might find this Ezekiel in the mix.
Some interesting information on Benjamin Bartlett was supplied to me by Angela Pifer years ago.She stated: Zilpha (Sefaya) wasAlibamo Coosada and a daughter of the Napochi Mi'ko.Sefaya (the Alibamo dialect form of Sehoy) was a common Creek name at that time.Even if illiterate, most white women in the Southern Colonies could at least sign their names but she put an "X" in the Indian style. The name Bartlett was borrowed from one of the British Indian Agents of the time James Bartlett, a close friend of the Napochi Mi'ko who adopted the name Bartlett (this was a common practice among Creeks). Her older brother was Napochi Hadjo (also known as Tommy Bartlett) who took part in the assault on Fort Mims and was an implacable enemy of US expansion into Creek lands.
(information compiled by Jon Griswold) The Napochi Mi'ko is best described as the headman of Napochi (a minor chief sometimes called a cacique).Often known to have traveled to the Carolinas with friendly traders. Possible he took the name Benjamin, as indicated in the Will of Benjamin Bartlett in Darlington Dis, SC that mentions a daughter Zilpha and a son Thomas.
