Very little is known of Elias W. Bartlett Sr. He was born in KY about 1822. He was probably born into slavery and brought to Missouri. He lived in Carrolton, Carol County in Missouri.
His first wife was Rachel and his second wife was Harriett.

Harriet's other children: estimate year of birth
Elias Jr. 1879
I don't know if Harriett was calming Lucy and the other child as her daughter. Lucy was Harriet's step daughter. Also I've noted that between the birth of Jennie and Juanita there was about a 9 years gap. Perhaps there were children born.
Elias Bartlett Sr. may have passed away about 1893 in Carrollton, Missouri. He was the father of about 13 or14 children.
