1. WILLIAM BARTLETT, born VA, counted on 1850 Weakley Co., TN census, District 3, house 62, was 66, b. abt 1784. Shows no wife, lists these children:

2. Nancy BARTLETT, age 27, VA

4. WILLIAM L. BARTLETT, born Oct. 15, 1827 in Virginia and my gr-gr-grandfather, I believe to be the above William (age 23 in the 1850 Weakley Co. TN census). His wife, ELIZABETH MARGARET HORN(E) UNDERHILL (or could be Margaret Elizabeth HORN(E) UNDERHILL) was born Sept. 21, 1828 in Tennessee. They were married Jan. 18, 1853 in Tennessee. I believe the HORN family may have lived "Under-the-hill", and family tradition is not correct. A cousin suggests that Margaret could be the daughter of C. and Rachel HORN, (b NC) listed on the 1850 Weakley Co, TN census, Dist 3, house 14. Siblings of Margaret are Jackson, Sarah, Cannon, Mahala, and Joseph. I believe this is possible.
