We now have DNA results from a descendant of Horace Mann BARTLETT b 1866 IA, who was son of Washington BARTLETT b 1820 VA; Who was in Warren Co, IN from 1842 to 1860s and then in Audobon Co, IA - Washington was older brother of Thomas BARTLETT 1827 VA-1907; m 1849 IN Margaret E KEENAN, who was father of John F BARTLETT who m Hattie HIGH.
These results are a match with DNA of a descendant of William BARTLETT 1722-1804 Loudoun Co, VA (Garner BARTLETT's father) through one of this other sons who went to Clark Co, KY and eventually changed his name back to BERKLEY; and the DNA results also match a descendant of William BARTLETT's brother, Benjamin BERKLEY 1720-1766. Both Benjamin BERKLEY and William BARTLETT are sons of William BERKELEY b1690; 1m 1717 Jane GARDNER; 2m 1723 Elizabeth HANCOCK.These BERKELEYs moved from Westmoreland Co, VA to Loudoun Co, VA in the mid-1700s.
I believe the parents of William BERKELEY b1690 were Thomas BARTLETT m Margaret BRENT - go figure, trying to determine what the real surname is.
Anyone who wants to confirm descent from Garner BARTLETT can now do so with a DNA test on a male BARTLETT; because we are now sure of the "signature" DNA for this line.
