The 1860 US census for Carver County, Minnesota, shows two groupings of Irish Bartleys in the town of Florence.I have nothing more than the census data, but based on their ages, it would be logical to think of these Bartleys as one family with the parents and younger children at one location, and the older children nearby—except that two of the children are named Thomas.Probably there is some good explanation for the name duplication (yet another mistake in the census records, Irish naming custom unknown to me, etc.)If my hypothesis is correct, then Thomas Bartley, b. Ireland ca. 1810, married Catharine _______, b. Ireland ca. 1815, in about 1832.They had at least three children born in Ireland--Thomas b. ca. 1832, Ann b. ca. 1844, and James b. ca. 1846--and probably more (unless Catherine is a second wife) since the 12-year gap between known births needs an explanation. They removed to Canada between 1846 and 1849, where at least four more children were born to them—Peter b. ca. 1849, Bridget b. ca. 1851, Patrick b. ca. 1852, and Thomas again, b. ca. 1856.And then they moved to Minnesota in time to be counted in the 1860 census.Both Thomas age 50 and Thomas age 28 are described as farmers, of very modest means.These are not my Bartleys, but I thought that perhaps the information would help someone.The census transcription is from rootsweb.
