RE: Bartles
I have a fairly extensive document compiled by a member of the Bartles family that I will send to you. Unfortunately, it does not even mention Julia as one of the children. I do have a census with her listed as a child of Christopher and Betty (Eliza). It also lists Maggie and the other children. Julia is also listed on the findagrave site for Christopher and Betty (Eliza). For some reason it's as though she didn't exist on the Bartles line according to the person documenting the information.

RE: Bartles
My email address is

Julia is my great great grandmother on my dad's side...we have something in common. Do you have any pictures of Maggie and/or any other members of the Bartles family that you could scan and email to me? Unfortunately, we do not have any and I have relied heavily on old newspaper clippings and family photos of others, but I have not been able to obtain a picture of Julia or any of her siblings aside from Mary Bartles. I recently found out that there is still a member of the Bartles family that currently attends Round Hill Baptist Church in Union Mills.

I appreciate any help you can provide on the Bartles line....Lynn

RE: Bartles
Ginger...Margaret (Maggie) Louise Bartles married Lyddale Charles Atkins...Maggie was sister to my great great grandmother Julia A Bartles Johnson (married to Hawkins S Johnson). I recently ran across a picture of Mary Bartles (another sister) who attended Roundhill Academy in Union Mills, NC. I have a newspaper article that Christopher Bartles was a tailor in Union Mills as well. I would love to have more information/pictures regarding the Bartles family. Do you have a profile on Ancestry?

Bettie Elizabeth Bartles
Eliza Bartles is my 3rd great grandmother. I read your bio and I'm curious about your request for the Bartles photo as I didn't see their names mentioned in your family's lineage.

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide regarding the Bartles family.
