Joshua Bartley was first married to Amanda Redifer and then to Rebecca. The 1850 census seemingly mistakes his name as Bartlett. The 1850 census shows Joshua and Amanda with their infant son James, who is buried in the same cemetery group as the William and Maria Redifer of the 1850 census group with the "Bartletts." The cemetery record for the Redifers lists young James' grave as James Bartley, not Bartlett. Amanda Bartley's burial is unclear.

(The 1870 census shows a 19-year-old "Amanda Bartley," potentially named after the first wife, living with Joshua and Rebecca. Other Bartley researchers report family trees depicting that Joshua Bartley did have a wife Amanda, daughter of a William "Radifer" and who lived 1825-7 Feb. 1855 and had a daughter Annie Bartley Mettam, 1851-1929, buried at Baltimore MD. -- # 101769928)

William and Maria Redifer's grave group, including infant James Bartley, was transferred in 1951 from old Odd Fellows to Lawnview cemetery in Montgomery County PA. (They have memorials in both cemeteries.) It is unclear where or when James' parents Joshua and Rebecca were moved.

The 1860 census shows Joshua and Rebecca with young children Samuel and Jane. A Jane Bartley shows as reinterred from Odd Fellows in section 4, group 51, of Lawnview cemetery while the Redifers with James Bartley were buried in section 4, group 49. Jane is Lawnview Memorial# 23916803 but does not have an Odd Fellows memorial.

It seems plausible -- but remains to be confirmed -- that this CA memorial might be Joshua and Rebecca's son Samuel: Memorial# 23071784
