Jedediah Bartlett b. 1797 in MA he and his mother migrated west and settled in Orleans County NY where he bought some land and carried on his shoe business, being a shoe maker by trade. My ggg gfather was born in Canada, within a hundred from where Jedediah settled, he too was a Bartlett and when he relocated in Eastern KY he bought sime land and carried on his shoe business, being a shoe maker by trade.There was an other Bartlett doing the same thing, making shoes, but I can't recall where I read about him, I'm guessing this was a family 'thing'. Does anyone reading this board have a bartlett in the shoe busness????????????
