1880 Will of Warren S. Bartle

Newark, NY

Wayne County, NY

Warren S. Bartle's will is one of a group of documents transcribed and contributed by researcher Ron Reid! "What I am trying to do is find a solid connection between Friend Kenyon and a supposed son by the name of Jonas Kenyon. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence but I am still searching for that irrefutible link. Therefore I am working from Friend Kenyon forward and Jonas Kenyon backwards. I will probably be getting more into the Garlock/Garlach line because we know Friend Kenyon married a Garlock and came from Herkimer to Wayne with the Garlock bunch in the 1830's."
