This was an old msg, so I'm not sure that it will help, but Gabriel and Susan (Kethcart) Bartleson are also my grgrgr grandparents. I don't have info to share on the Kethcart line, but noticed another post where you asked about where the family went after 1880. Maybe info on my direct line will help: Gabriel and Susan's son, George William was born in So. Sterling, Wayne, PA and died in Wilks-Barre, Luzerne, PA. George's daughter Laura Elizabeth was born in Hickory Run, Luzerne, PA and died in Gledale, LA, CA. Perhaps their family moved west? I would be interested in any additional info you have on the Kethcart (alt sp "Cathcart") and Bartleson lines. Thanks!
