Need info. on the Francis Bartlett who d. Orange Co NC ca. 1784 who had 2 orphans named Elenor and John.
What became of these children?
In my SUIT family, we have a man named Bartlett SUIT who was b. ca. 1807 and was s/o William SUIT and lived in Caswell Co NC but later lived in KY & then TN.
The guardian (or person they were bound to?) of the orphans of Francis Bartlett who d. 1784 was James NEAL.
I think he was prob. s/o Anne SUIT NEAL & Charles NEAL from St. Mary's Co MD to VA to ??
A man also named this is in Anne SUIT NEAL's uncle's will in Halfax Co NC (Jos. Edwards)

And the following was posted on the BArtlett forum:
The 1784 May Court ordered that ?John Bartley, (sic) aged eight last February and Ellenor Barton (sic) aged six last March, orphans (sic) of Francis Bartley, (sic) be bound to James Neal.?

Finally, I had found this marriage online--that I think "may" be William SUIT who had been married to Rebecca Wilson IN 1786 in Caswell Co NC--but can't prove it is the same guy/family:
I had found this marriage record(simlar to Suit surname ) in Westmoreland Co. VA 1806--
