Joseph Bartley of N.Carolina, born 1832 in Blue Ridge and married to a Mary Nel was my gg grandfather. He had nine children the oldest of which was George Washington Bartley who was married to Sarah Potts. In 1892 George W. and his brother Jasper came from Missouri to Texas.My grandfather, Albert Lafayette, born 1881 died in Clarksville,Tx in 1951 He was the second son of George Washington, married to Lucy Ferguson. My mother Zenith Bartley Gist was their oldest daughter.I am looking for (1) ancestors of Joseph of N. Carolina. I believe the original immigrants came from northern Ireland, (2) information on when the Joseph went to Missouri from N. Carolina.
