I've been in Beijing for the past week, and didn't have all my files with me.
Your descendancy down to James E BARTLETT b 1888 GA m Gullie and lived in Taylor Co, GA in 1920 adn Troup Co, GA in 1930 matches my records. A cousin of yours (descended from Willamson Archer BARTLETT) is a participant in our BARTLETT-DNA project.His DNA result is a match with several other lines, including William BARTLETT b 1733 VA, d 1807 Warren Co, NC; James BARTLETT b 1760 VA, d 1823 Patrick Co, VA; William BARTLETT b 1784 VA of Weakley Co, TN. However, we've never been able to tie Starling in.In 1850 he said he was b SC; in 1860 he said VA. I'm inclined to belive VA, as that is where the others above were born.I call this matching group of DNA lines DNA Group G.
Starling was in Hancock Co, GA records in 1807, 1816 and 1820 census. There was a John BARTLETT also in Hancock Co, GA 1808 through the 1840 census, but his descendants have been DNA tested and are different [I call their's DNA Group C which came from Dobbs Co, NC, and probably from MD before that).It's always puzzled me that two unrelated BARTLETT lines were in Hancock Co, GA at the same time - it's fairly unusual.
As a male BARTLETT from this line, you could help us verify this line by participating in the DNA Project.You should be an exact match with the other participant - if so then this line is confirmed; if by chance, your DNA matched Group C, then the other participant may have a mixup in his tree...
Thanks for posting your line, and please let me know if you're interested in DNA.
