Untangling the Solon BARTLETTs

A simple search of Ancestry.com for Solon BARTLETT shows me one problem we
have with this name, which I thought was surely unique -- there are at least
FOUR. I'm primarily interested in Solon Putnam BARTLETT, my husband's
gggrandfather, but it might be useful to chronicle the others, too. I'll put
them in order of birth.

A search of the 1860 finds not a trace of this Solon, and the only Bartletts
to be found in Louisiana are two women, apparently living with their
children, but both in the same Ward 11 of New Orleans:

No images here, because I haven't a clue if they are connected to this Solon,
or not.

The Ancestral File on FamilySearch.org lists a Solon Bartlett born 22 Nov
1811, in Bethel, Oxford Co. Maine, son of Peregrine Bartlett and Sally
MERRILL.
The GEDCOM can be downloaded from FamilySearch.

FamilySearch IGI has a Family Group Sheet for Solon born 14 Jun 1813 in NY,
son of Josiah Barlett and Alice F. Putnam, both also born in NY.
No
sources are cited, of course! This is our Solon.

Another group sheet has a marriage to DORTHEA CAPTULA SITES on 9 NOV 1848,
also in Mercer County, Illinois. I believe this marriage is also listed in
the Index.

Is this Charles Solon in the 1860 or 1870 Census'? Are these

She could have been married by 1900....If so, this is the same Solon as Solon

What happened to this Solon, b. 1850, son of Joseph G & Charlotte, and perhaps

Solon born 1867-8 Massachusetts, son of John F. & Asenath, both b. MA. I
find no evidence of Solon after 1880, although I can find his mother until
1920!

enumerated with his parents John F. & Asenath.

Damn the lack of an 1890 Census! By 1900, I see Solon's older brother Frank
and his wife Bertha and children still living in Boylson. 19 year-old Chester
is Frank and Solon's little brother. So it seems that father John F. is
either so old he cannot support his young son, or has died. Can this be href="">Solon in 1900? Name: C S Bartlett

Frank & Bertha are in Leominster MA in 1910; I don't see Clarence.

By 1920, Asenath, 80, is living with her daughter Nancy and her
family in Worcester MA. In 1930, I do see an Asenath Bartlett, but she's a
toddler living with her parents and grandmother in Vermont, and her father
was born in Vermont as were his parents. So a connection is not likely.

Where is Solon Jr.? Can he be Junius? Perhaps it is actually "Junior."
Ancestry's Living Person Finder lists a Solon A Bartlett, Birth Date: 13 Aug
1919, living in Wyoming, age 87, living with a Thomas Bartlett. I believe
this is Solon A, Jr. Contact me if this is your line, for his contact
information.

California Death Records: BARTLETT, SOLON A
Social Security #: 506109128
Sex: MALE
Birth Date: 9 Mar 1893
Birthplace: Nebraska
Death Date: 27 Jan 1975
Death Place: LOS ANGELES. I believe this is the same man. An obituary would
tell more.


There is also a death record for Mabel, I think:

BARTLETT, MABEL C, born 05/16/1893, mother's maiden name: BICKFORD, however,
no father's surname is given, so this could be Mabel's maiden name. It shows
her birth state as COLORADO, which is correct. If this is the correct Mabel,
she died in LOS ANGELES(70) on 12/12/1966, age 73. Her SSN was 507-40-7832.

Ida COLLAMER is Blanche's mother. John is a lawyer! Perhaps father's legal
career is the source of this Solon's name.
