Bartlett Family Genealogy

Typing on six onion skinned papers, Ralph Sylvester Bartlett presented his lineage in the early 1900’s. His Bartlett family were early pioneers in Kittery Maine in the section later known as Eliot Maine. Whether he ever meant to compile these pages into book form is left for you to interpret, but somebody did eventually compile the 6 pages they had of his family tree. We provide the entire 6 pages in digital format below the transcription.

Portrait and Biographical Record of Seneca and Schuyler Counties, NY

In this volume will be found a record of many whose lives are worthy the imitation of coming generations. It tells how some, commencing life in poverty, by industry and economy have accumulated wealth. It tells how others, with limited advantages for securing an education, have become learned men and women, with an influence extending throughout the length and breadth of the land. It tells of men who have risen from the lower walks of life to eminence as statesmen, and whose names have become famous. It tells of those in every walk in life who have striven to succeed, and records how that success has usually crowned their efforts. It tells also of many, very many, who, not seeking the applause of the world, have pursued “the even tenor of their way,” content to have it said of them, as Christ said of the woman performing a deed of mercy – “They have done what they could.” It tells how that many in the pride and strength of young manhood left the plow and the anvil, the lawyer’s office and the counting-room, left every trade and profession, and at their country’s call went forth valiantly “to do or die,” and how through their efforts the Union was restored and peace once more reigned in the land. In the life of every man and of every woman is a lesson that should not be lost upon those who follow after. Genealogists will appreciate this volume from the fact that it contains so much that would never find its way into public records, and which would otherwise be inaccessible. Great...

Letter from John P. Arthur to Franklin D. Love

Copy of letter from John P. Arthur to me. John P. Arthur Asheville, N.C. April 17th, 1903. Attorney at Law. Franklin D. Love, Esqr., Georgetown, Texas. Dear Sir: Yours of the 14th, inst., to hand. I spoke to Mrs. Hilliard this morning about writing a sketch of the life of her Grandfather, Robert Love, but she says that she is not in a position to give you as much information as I have already furnished, as she was but nine or ten years old when he died, and she has but a faint recollection of him. I suggest that before you have your account of his life printed, you send it to me here, or to Miss Mary Love Stringfield, at Waynesville for such suggestions, corrections and alterations as they may devise. In this way nothing will be omitted; nothing be included that should not be, and if there are any errors, they should be corrected. At any rate, this is the best means of securing fullness and accuracy. I will make it my business to submit it to all who are in a position to revise it, and return it to you, if you adopt this suggestion. No one seems willing to undertake the task of writing out a full account of his life, for various reasons; but if the first draft or framework is read to them, each would be willing to make any recommendations that may occur to them. And, then, no blame could attach to you for errors or omissions. As what you propose to print is the only enduring monument Robert Love will ever...
