She can still read and sew without the aid of spectacles. Mr. Bartlett's father, Buckley M., and mother, Henrietta Bartlett, the former aged eighty years and the latter seventy-five years, are both remarkably well preserved, and live in Connecticut. Mr. B. started life in the West in a humble way, living then in a small log house, which being the last house on the pinery road, was a convenient stopping-place and their little house often accommodated from twelve to twenty travelers over night. Mr. Bartlett commenced farming here with limited means, but his skill and energy has been crowned with success. His farm consists of 320 acres of excellent land, highly improved, and with good buildings. He also has forty acres of timber. Since its organization, Mr. B. has been president of the Town Fire Insurance Co. in the town of Eagle Point, and has repeatedly held other offices of trust in the town.
