She is a descendant of Elder William Brewster at whose, manor house in England the Pilgrim fathers had their church. He later became their spiritual teacher after their landing on the shores of the new world three centuries ago.

Griffith of Antos, Calif, came to make her home with her, they being the only survivors of a family of eight children. Mrs. Griffin died here in 1947. Miss Bartlett is survived by a niece, May Bartlett Griffy of Houston, Texas. Miss Bartlett was engaged in secretarial work at the Corse Press for many years. She attended the Congregational chruch and later the First Methodist church; she was a member of Lake Ontario Chapter, OES, serving as treasurer over an extended period and was a member and past president of the Ladies Wednesday Club.
