I have hit a brick wall on Curtis Bartlett (according to 1850 census in Hamilton County, Indiana) born abt 1810.
According to the same records, Eliza was born abt 1814.
There is a marriage certificate showing Eliza Abbott married August 1833 (also in Hamilton County). However, the groom is "~~~~" as there was a fire that destroyed documents that someone reproduced as best as possible.
They are 7 generations away from me.
I have come across (by accident) Eliza's tombstone (b 1815). She is buried between their son, William and his wife, Frances in Indianapolis Indiana. I descend from William's brother John.
I also believe William and John's sister, Hannah Ann was also buried nearby William, Frances and Eliza (the row behind).
I have been able to connect via DNA with others that have a tree going further back but there is a LARGE gap that I can not seem to connect their tree/information to mine.
Anyone know of this family? Anyone give me any more direction???
