Jay Bartlett, the well known merchant of Glenville, was born July 20, 1861, in the town where he now resides. His parents were Amander and Ann D. (Peet) Bartlett, natives of Cattaraugus County, New York. Mr. Bartlett attended the public schools of his hometown and there grew to manhood, working with his father and fitting himself for a useful and industrious life. In 1886 he entered the hardware and lumber business in partnership with his father, with whom he worked for four years, after which he purchased the father's interests and has since conducted the business on his own responsibility. In 1897 he erected the brick block in which his store is located at the present time, and the second story is finished as a modern flat or apartment in which Mr. Bartlett resides. He is a member of the Prohibitionist party, and has held many important offices in the town, among which services are in the postoffice for a period of several years, town clerk of Shell Rock for 20 years, president of the village board, treasurer of the school board and also treasurer of the Glenville cemetery association. He is a member of the Masonic Lodge, A.F. & A.M., No. 26, of Albert Lea. Mr. Bartlett married Viola N. Palmer, August 11, 1886. She was born at Glenville, August 11, 1865, daughter of Reverend Daniel H. Palmer. To Mr. and Mrs. Bartlett a son, Owen was born, April 23, 1899, and died March 2, 1911.
