Who is 'they'? You sent me a SAC which said,

"She was the daughter of Preston Chandler and Bathsheba Shurtleff."

When I questioned her maiden name you responded on my profile page:

"She was the daughter of Preston Chandler and Bathsheba Ann Bartlett."

I'd appreciate you rechecking this before I add it to the memorial erroneously.

On the corrner of Main street and Pine is located the office of the Poplar Bluff Citizen. In 1869 this paper was established under the name of the Black River News, and edited by Drs. G.L. Poplin and G.T. Bartlett. Shortly after its establishment Dr. Bartlett withdrew, and under the name of "Poplin's Black River News" the paper braved the tempest--journalistic--for several years until 1874, when W.T. Kitchens and George H. Kelly took charge of the concern and changed the name to "The Headlight." Subsequently Kitchens' interest was purchase by Andrew Giboney, and again the title of the journal was changed to the "Bluff Citizen." In 1877 George H. Crumb took charge of the paper, and altered the name so as to read "Poplar Bluff Citizen."

George T. Bartlett, M. D., the subject of this sketch, was born September 9th, 1830, at a parsonage called Smyrna, Davidson county, Tennessee, and was raised in Williamson county, Tennessee until twelve years of age, when his parents moved to the state of Arkansas. He received a common school education at Cane Hill College and other schools, and then began the study of medicine in 1854, and graduated at the Nashville Medical College in 1857.
After leaving college Dr. Bartlett moved to Springfield, Tenn., and afterwards located in Dunklin county, Missouri, where in 1861 he joined the first regiment of M. S. G., of which regiment he became Assistant Surgeon and was later promoted to full Surgeonship. On the disbandment of the State troops the Doctor went with Gen. Jeff. Thompson, to Memphis, as Surgeon and Medical Purveyor, consigned to duty on the fleet at Fort Pillow, after which he was promoted to the position of Brigade Surgeon.

Dr. Bartlett played quite an important part in the late unpleasantness, being in the renowned Marmaduke raid with Colonel Kitchens and General Jeff. Thompson and also on the famous raid of Sterling Price. The Doctor moved to Poplar Bluff in November 1865 where he has since remained. In 1879 Gov. Phelps commissioned him as a Regent of the Cape Girardeau Normal School, and in July, 1883, he received a commission from Governor Crittenden as a member of the State Board of Health. For the last ten years his attention has been confined to the practice of Medicine and Surgery, the latter being his stronghold. As a surgeon he has no equal in this section of the state, and few superiors elsewhere. He is a hard-working student and a lover of his profession. He is 53 years of age, is slightly grey but enjoys good health. He has a good practice and has performed some wonderful cures through his skill with the knife.
