RE: Parents of Margaret Gressman Lee

Parents of Margaret Gressman Lee
I was wondering how you discovered the burial place for John Lee and Margaret. Margaret's parents, Charles Gressman and Phebe Ann Dalley both died in the 1850's, Phebe passed first in the early 1850's in Franklin Twp, she was living separately from Charles, so we can assume she was possibly ill. John Lee died in 1855, was buried in Baptistown, Charles died in 1858 in Raritan Twp, then Margaret died in 1864, also buried in Baptistown. John and Margaret supposedly both died in Trenton. Since they all died within a decade of each other, could Charles and Phebe be in the same cemetery? They weren't buried near their other two known children, Asher and Mary Ann, as they were buried in Iowa, and Mary in Wall, Monmouth Co., NJ. Let me know what you think. -Amber

RE: Emma F. Johnson Fairbrother
Hi, there is a few spaces near Reuben that a grave could be, but there was no headstone for Emma. However, I found out that the old cemetery taker threw stones out that were broken. I can't remember Emma's date of death. I will keep an eye out for her grave as I am part of the Anson/North Anson Historical Society.

John White - Bartlett ancestor who brought colonists to Roanoke colony
Dear Bob,

I believe you and I are both on the Bartlett line that goes way back intermarried to the White family, as in John White who initially advised that England should colonize America in the first place. He brought two shiploads of colonists to Roanoke, neither colony of which survived. John White himself never lived in the colonies - apparently a smart move on his part.

Piles of research on John White an his descendents all over the Internet, as you've probably already read.

This connection is all from research by Hazel Bartlett (1883-1987.) She was a Librarian at the Library of Congress. I am sorry that I erroneously said she publically PUBLISHED her genealogy work. Apparently whatever she discovered would only be recorded in her correspondence with genealogists of the 1940's or
in the 3 or 4 Rubbermaid tubs of albums, letters, etc. in my mother's house.

The paper formal pedigree book of Jonathan Hodgkin Bartlett is too big to fit in my safe deposit box. I'm moving often and making it clear to others to be careful in their "sorting" and labeling of original paper originals from the 1880's. Sorry I don't have more news for you, Bob. Do you keep your records of Ebenezer Bartlett, 1812 War Vet, any place public on the Internet? - J

Jonathan Hodgkin Bartlett descendants
On my line, the last male Bartletts BORN with the name Bartlett are the sons of Jonathan Hodgkin Bartlett: Prof. Harley Harris Bartlett and Clifford Loomis Bartlett, MD. Clifford has descendants, two daughters, and all descendents of those 2 daughters are still living.

There are still descendents of J.H. Bartlett reproducing, but they were not named Bartlett. Two have the middle name Bartlett and one has the middle name Harley, but probably that's the last of the descendants who have names related to their Bartlett ancestors. I seem to be the main person interested in my ancestry and others in my family will peruse my research only when coaxed.

So, I guess I am recording all these things for more distant cousins like you or maybe younger relatives who may develop an interest in their family history as they grow older. It's hard to put hundreds of hours into recording and scanning when my living family show no barely any interest.

RE: Jonathan H. Bartlett
Hi Bob,

I'm looking for some photos of Jonathan. Unfortunately my mom put some valuable photos, letters, and original documents from the 1880's in the attic which is not climate controlled. Some of the photos have to be very carefully pried apart. I did collect quite a bit of information from court house and paper records while in Anaconda in summer 2014.

I remember you and I are both Ebenezer Bartlett descendents. I don't remember if you and I are on the same Bartlett line pre-Civil War or into the American revolution.

Do you know anything of a Captain Bartlett who was the wealthy mayor of Port Townsend, Washington in Victorian times? My great great aunt Hazel Bartlett (1883-1987) said we are related to him, but I don't know how. That would be before Artemus Bartlett, son of Ebenezer Bartlett.

I am hoping my tree Jonathan H. Bartlett and before is public. If not, I have to figure out how to make that public. I am sensitive about my privacy of living relatives. Two male Bartletts remain on the line descended from J.H. Bartlett who theoretically could reproduce, but so far it doesn't look like they are going to. - J

Manzers in Brooklawn
Hi Bob,

I have claimed your photo request for the marker of Geraldine Manzer, and will be going to the cemetery later this week.

In looking at the Brooklawn website, I found 3 other Manzers:

Harry A (interred 5/23/1977) in the same plot, presumably her husband.

Irene M (interred 4/25/1997)

Paul D (interred 10/9/1985) buried in the same plot as Irene, but in a different part of the cemetery from Geraldine & Harry.

None of these folks have memorials created, so if you wish to create one (at least for Harry), I will be glad to claim an additional photo request. I will plan to take a photo at any rate.

Let me know.

Comer Lester Watkins Sr - Riverview Memorial Park
Hello Bob!

Thank you so much for going back to the cemetery to fulfill my request for Comer Watkins Sr's double headstone. It was very kind of you to make another trip there to take another photo to place on his memorial. Love that I now have a distant shot and the new closer photo of their double marker. You're certainly a kind soul.

Best Regards,
