This is a very interesting family - one that has eluded a lot of research.
We have DNA from a descendant of Samuel Duncan BARTLETT, and it matches DNA from descendants of a Samuel BARTLETT c1750 of Dobbs Co, NC and it matches DNA from descendants of Nicholas BARTLETT b 1642 who lived in Somerset Co, MD [based on the dates, it appears Samuel of Dobbs Co, NC probably descends from the Somerset Co, MD BARTLETT - the link may well be a Pasque BARTLETT - a very unusual given name found as a descendant of Nicholas, and also found in a few NC records...)
I have extracted all the BARTLETTs in the census records in NC, SC, GA, and some other states and combined that with other info from the interent...
It appears to me the family is as such:
Samuel BARTLETT b 1750; d 1820 Wayne Co, NC; m Mary ____ Samuel is in Wayne Co, NC census 1790, 1800, 1810; and Mary is in Wayne Co, NC census 1820.I have the following children: 1. John b 1770-75 - moved to Hancock Co, GA by 1808 2. William A b 1776 NC; 1m Susannah BLACKMAN 3. James b c1775 - moved to Madison Co, GA by 1829 4. Kate m James BRIDGER 5. Martha b 1790-94; never married 6. Sarah; never married Samuel 2m c1786 Mary ______ 7. Merrit b 1787-90 - probably stayed in NC and died in Green Co, NC 8. Campbell b 1787-90 moved to Hancock Co, GA b 1825
James BARTLETT c1775 was in 1880 & 1820 Wayne Co, NC census; probably in GA by 1825; Madison Co, GA 1830 & 1840 census; children: A. Samuel Duncan b c1800 NC m Nancy Martha BUIE B. Wyle J b 1802 m Elizabeth C. female b 1804-10 D. Chraity b 1804-10; m 1829 Madison Co, GA Wilborn SMITH E. female b 1810-20 F. Buck b 1810-20 G. Miles b 190-00 m 25 Nov 1834 Sumter Co, GA Sarah COOK H. James M b 1815-20 I. male b 1815-20 J. male b 1820-25 K. male b 1820-25
I hope someone can help me fill in these children's names and birthdates - I can probably tie them in to later census records...
