Selected Families and Individuals

Notes


William Royal Bartlett

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 4 Jan 2005 by Steve Treanor. "William came to Edwardsville with his family when he was 7 years old. He grew up a farmer and followed in the trade. He and his wife Lucy had 10 children. He died at 47. His wife remarried a little over a year after his death and moved to the Washington Territory. Some of the children did not want to go and they were left with older siblings or other relatives"


Lucy Thompson

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 4 Jan 2005 by Steve Treanor. "Lucy was first married to William Royal Bartlett. They had eleven children before William died at the age of 47. After William's death there son Joseph L Bartlett. stayed on at the family farm and helped his mother run the operation. In June of 1848 Joseph cut his knee severely. It apparently became infected and 6 - 10 weeks later Joseph L. Bartlett died. Lucy claimed a greater share of the estate as she had carred for Joseph. In a court case to resolve the conflict David and Allen Bartlett testified for their mother's claim. It appears as if the jury ruled that the claim may have been legitimate but that there were some "Foxes in the Fold". The distribution of the estate was finally settled in 1950. Lucy married Squire Bennett on 23 Jun 1849 in Madison County, Illinois and the next year moved west along the Oregon Trail with sons John Wesley and James P. Mary Ann and Riley followed at a later date. These children are found later in the Washington Territory in Clark County farming and Riley became a preacher. The children who decided to remain in Illinois were placed with relatives."


Joseph Leamon Bartlett

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 4 Jan 2005 by Steve Treanor. "After the death of his father he continued to work on the family farm with his mother. He owned some live stock and kept it on the family farm while he worked on it. In 1848 he severely cut a knee and illness followed. His mother cared for him for about 6 weeks and he died intestate. There was a dispute over the distribution of Joseph's assests raised by his mother and her new husband Squire Bennett. This case was settled in 1850."
