I am researching the Bartlett family for a friend. Note that not all Bartlett's descend from Josiah Bartlett, as my friend and I found out!Much material is available about several New England Bartlett families in the 1600 and 1700's; some in this forum.There is a Bartlett line through marriage to a Mayflower line (check out the Mayflower site). Josiah Bartlett married his first cousin, Mary BArtlett (maiden name was Bartlett) 15 Jan. 1754; I have a later date also, but it doesn't work if the children I have listed are correct. According to my material, Josiah was born 21 Nov. 1729 and died 19 May 1785 and is is buried in the Universal chuuch Yard, Kinston, NH. Material about him can be found in encylopedia's, on the Internet, in the LDS materials, and the New England Historical and Genealogical Society publications (at your local library). He practiced medicine from 1750 to 1767; signed the Declaration of Independence, was a Justice of the peace and a colonel of militia.He was a delegate to the Continental Congress and helped to draft the Articles of confederation.He was Chief Executive and first Governor of New Hampshire. I have listed twelve children for him. Hope this helps.
