Herschel Bartlett, a member of the firm of Bartlett Brothers, and president of the Bartlett Brothers' Investment Company, of St. Joseph, was born in Washington township, Ripley county, Ind., November 23, 1841, and is a son of David and Phoebe (Ellsworth) Bartlett.
Herschel Bartlett remained with his parents until of age, alternately farming and teaching school, and he accompanied the family in its removal to Atchison county, Mo., in 1858. They resided in the neighborhood of Tarkio until 1862, and then the whole family removed to St. Joseph, and our subject became the employee of a local dry goods house and then became a distributing clerk in the post office. In 1866 was founded what is the oldest and has become the largest and most comprehensive real estate business of this city. It was started by our subject in partnership with his brother, the late William H. Bartlett, merely as buyers and sellers on their own account. In 1874 they commenced negotiating loans for eastern parties and their investment business has now become the leading feature of the concern. About this date a third brother, David L., was taken into partnership, and in
1898 the Bartlett Brothers' Investment Company was incorporated, with Herschel Bartlett as president; David L., vice-president, and William H. as secretary and treasurer.
On September 23, 1881, Herschel Bartlett was married to Emily P. Nye, who is a daughter of James A. Nye, of St. Joseph, and they have one son, Philip C. K., who is at Yale preparing for graduation in the class of 1908. Mr. Bartlett is an elder in, and has been one of the trustees of the Westminster Presbyterian church. He is a member of the Republican party, and a first-class, representative citizen. Business address, No. 6 Safe Deposit building, St. Joseph, Missouri.
