Generation One

1. Joseph Callaway BARTLETT,1,2,3 first son and third child of Jesse BARTLETT and Frances CALLAWAY, was born on 7 Aug 1814 in Knox County, Tennessee.4,5,6,7,8 He married Amanda Monroe ESTES, daughter of James D. ESTES and Eunice WILLIAMS, on 18 Apr 1839 in Washington County, Texas.9,10,11,12,13 He married Martha Ann Elizabeth NORVELL, daughter of George NORVELL and Nancy HUDNALL, on 19 Jun 1856 in Navarro County, Texas.14,15,16 He died on 11 Sep 1888 in Rice, Navarro County, Texas, at age 74.17,18,19,20,21 He was buried in Rice, Navarro County, Texas.22,23

He was ten or eleven years old when the family moved from Tennessee to Illinois and was seventeen years old when they arrived in Texas in late 1831.23a  With his father, he served in the Army of the Republic of Texas during the 1836 Texas Revolution. His eight-year-old bag horse was 'lost in service' on 15 Jul 1836, for which he was reimbursed $125. On 10 May 1838 the Secretary of War for the Republic issued bounty warrant 3291 to him for 320 acres of land for service in the Army of the Republic from 18 Jun 1836 to 18 Sep 1836. Pursuant to the warrant he patented 320 acres in Lampasas County on 11 Sep 1845. He and Amanda moved to present Navarro County, Texas (then part of Robertson County) in the same year, when the area was just being settled and was still somewhat the frontier. They first lived at Taos (Porter's Bluff) on the Trinity River. In 1846 he was appointed Navarro County tax collector by his friend, Sheriff James Allen Johnson. He also served the county as justice of the peace in the 1860's and was the first postmaster of Rice, serving from 2 Oct 1872, when the post office was established, to 23 Nov 1875. Federal census records for 1850 give his occupation as farmer and the value of his real estate as $3,000; the 1860 census shows his land holdings had increased to $4,000 and his personal estate was valued at $1,200. The family moved from near the Trinity westward to a farm three or four miles south of present Rice, building their home on a site now on the north side of Farm Road 1126, about a mile west of the railroad tracks. He died at the home of his son J.M., probably on this same farm near Rice, on 11 Sep 1888. When his first wife, Amanda, died in 1851, at age 29, Joseph, then 37, they had four young children, the oldest then being 11. About five years later, he married Martha Ann Elizabeth Norvell, who died at age 45, when Joseph was 60. He was remembered by a niece for his gentle, polished manners, his love of books, and his careful training of his children.24,25,26  In 1860 he was a trustee of the Masonic and Odd Fellows Male and Female High School at Chatfield.26a

He was paroled at Millican, Texas on 26 Jun 1865. He and Mollie were charter members of the Methodist church in Rice. In 1875 they joined nine others in donating money for construction of a church and school building in Rice, and he was on the building committee for the schoolhouse built in 1912 (demolished in the 1970's). In addition to farming he operated a gin with Mr. Haynie, which is now the Fortson Brothers gin, and a mercantile business that is now the Fortson Brothers store in Rice, and he was vice president of First State Bank in Rice. With lumber hauled from Houston by oxcart, in 1900 they built in Rice a family home that is still occupied by descendants. The farm house was moved to Rice for Ben Bartlett's family and still stands, two houses north of J.M. and Mollie's home. J.M. died as a result of an injury from a fall. At his death he had lived in Navarro County for seventy-six years, and a friend wrote that when he died he "was perhaps the oldest citizen, in point of residence, in the county." His and Mollie's grave marker bears Masonic and Eastern Star insignias.137,138,139,140,140a
