"Amos Bartley Bio from “The Counties of Cumberland, Jasper, and Richland, Illinois” pages 527 and 528 published by F.A. Battey and Co. in 1884. Online version found at

Amo s Bartley, son of John P. and Charity (Lawson) Bartley, was born in Adams County, Ohio on May 16, 1825, and at four years of age moved with his father to Shelby County, Indiana, where he worked on a farm. He went to school about three months in the year and labored on a farm the remainder of the year until, in 1850, he went by overland route to California, being six months on the road. While there, he worked at farming and mining, but in 1853, he returned East and settled in Jasper County, Illinois, locating on 160 acres of land which his father had entered in an early day. While there, he was married to Nancy, daughter of Aaron Harlan of Jasper County. Three children, all deceased, were born to them. His wife also died in 1861.
