After 20-30 years of research by many individuals and as of January 1999, the father of Joseph, Nathan and Joshua BARTLETT has not been proven and research is ongoing. Joshua and Nathan are definitely brothers and circumstantial evidence leads us to believe Joseph is a brother. Our quest is to find some parents for these men.

Generation No. 1

Nathan BARTLETT was one of the earliest settlers in the Dry Valley, his grants being a little older than those of his nearest neighbor, Joseph HUNTER.

Peggy HUNTER was a sister-in-law of Sarah BOONE, who married Peggy's brother, William HUNTER. Sarah BOONE was the daughter of Edward "Ned" BOONE and the niece of the famous "Daniel BOONE", her father´┐Żs brother. Nathan and Peggy are both buried in the BARTLETT Graveyard in Eastlake Subdivision on Bartlett Road, Cookeville, Putnam Co., TN. From 1947 correspondance received from Mrs. B. K. Mitchell, Clerk & Master of Chancery Court, White County: "...I did find the graves of one Nathan and his wife, which proved to be the Nathan whose estate was settled in 1837 to 1840. These two graves are marked with heavy slabs of mountain stone set roof style over them and with the following inscriptions: 'Here lies the body of Nathan BARTLETT, Decd April 20, 1837, aged 86.' "

[Note: Putnam Co., TN was formed 1842 from White County, the formation declared unconstitutional and abolished, then re-established in 1854. Prior to 1842, Dry Valley was located in what was then White County.]

From the Early History of Putnam County, Tennessee , by W. S. Mcclain, 1925:

Joshua BARTLETT and wife (Winnie, nee WILLIAMS) moved from Boonesborough, KY with their eight children about the year 1808 and built a cabin on the south bank of Falling Water, near the location of the concrete bridge on the new highway through there.

Later Mr. BARTLETT erected a larger and better residence (now occupied by Dudley FARLEY) near the original cabin, which was then used for several years as a church and school house, but was finally abandoned for a new building on the north bank of Falling River, the site of the present Brown's Mill Church. The BARTLETT children were named Daniel, Nathan, Joseph, Edith, Rebecca, Dorcas, Nancy and Penelope. Another daughter, Hester, was born in their new home in 1812, and was the grandmother of Claude BROWN, who gave us this information. Mr. BROWN's mother, widow of the late Hyram BROWN, now in her 87th year, remembers clearly the details of the capture of Daniel BOONE's daughters by the Indians, in a raid on Boonesborough, as related by her mother. The original entry of land by Mr. BARTLETT embraced 360 acres on Falling Water, the bottom land thickly covered by tall cane.
