Nicholas Bartlett

BIOGRAPHY: [HYPERLINK http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~bartlett/bartlett-nicholas.htm ] Will probated in Knox County, Tennessee.

NAME-BIRTH: James Alonzo Matthews and Lucille Pearce, composers, Pearce, Bartlett, Matthews, Smart, and Allied Families (Austin, Tex.: Eakin Publications, Inc., 1983), p. 157.

RESEARCHER-DESCENDANTS: Information sent to T.Mason on 4 Jan 2005 by Steve Treanor. "Nicholas first appears in Maryland land records on August 20, 1766 as owning 142 acres of land in Dorchester County. The tract name was West's Rest. Nicholas and Mary first settled in Rockingham County, Virginia in the fall of 1784, Nicholas and Mary and their six children left the Greenbrier colony (then in Rockingham County) and moved to Tennessee, settling a few miles south of Knoxville. This area was then in what was called the State of Franklin, having once been part of North Carolina, and then was on the frontier and subject to trouble with the Cherokee. In 1785 he built a grist mill on Stock Creek, in what then was Greene County and in 1792 became Knox County, and soon the mill was fortified to provide safety from Indian attacks for settlers in the vicinity. Blount County was created from Knox County south of Knoxville in 1795 with "Bartlett's Station" lying on the county line. Nicholas owned a large amount of land and gave much of it to his children before his death. His will took care of only those children who had not received gifts of land from him while he was alive. Nicholas was associated closely with Jeremiah Pearce in Virginia. Four Bartlett daughters married Pearce men, apparently two of them were brothers and the other two were cousins. The Governor of Virginia Patrick Henry made the following land grant to Nicholas Bartlett.

Mary Martin

BIOGRAPHY: [HYPERLINK http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~bartlett/bartlett-nicholas.htm ] Mary moved to Shakertown to live with a daughter after she was widowed.

RESEARCHER-DESCENDANTS: Information sent to T.Mason on 4 Jan 2005 by Steve Treanor. "Although some records show that Mary lived from 1746 or 1747 to 1837, family tradition is that she almost reached her 100th birthday. After Nicholas died, Mary lived with a daughter, Esther Hunt, who had settled near Edwardsville, Madison County, Illinois, in 1813. She lived there nine years, then moved to the home of another daughter, Mary Pearce, at the Shaker community of South Union in Logan County, Kentucky, where she died and was buried. She was blind in her last years."


Lydia Bartlett

RESEARCHER-DEATH: Information sent to T.Mason on 4 Jan 2005 by Steve Treanor [stevetrea@sbcglobal.net]. "Name of her first husband, with whom she lived in Tennessee, is unknown. He was a politician, and he got into an altercation of some kind, presumably over politics, the details of the dispute were never known, but during the wrangle he was stabbed to death."
