Hi!  I realize this is probably more than you need, but I thought it
might be interesting none the less.  The information comes from the
History of Norway, by Charles F. Whitman.  It was originally printed in
1924.  I purchased a limited edition reprint for my mother, the
genealogist of the family.  We are looking for a Stephen Bartlett who
married a Mary Knight on Dec 26, 1807.  They had a son Stephen, b. 1819
d. 1887. 


Good luck.
