Have you looked at the Buncombe Co, NC census records? All of the BARTLETTs there fit neatly into one family. This is not my line, but I have extracted all of the census records, which I'll paste below, and my analysis of them confirms what other researchers on this line have determined with much more detailed records.

-1790 Burke Co, NC; Census [4th column]: Jno BARTLET 1010 [John b bef 1774; female ] [John recently married?]
-1791 Buncombe Co, TN formed from Burke Co, TN]
-1800 Buncombc Co, NC (Morgan); Census [p161:25]:John BARTLETT 20010-30010 [John b 1755-74; wife b 1755-74]
-1810 Buncombe Co, NC; Census [p264:3]: John BARTLET 32001-21210 [John b bef 1765; wife b 1765-84]
-1820 Buncombe Co, NC; Census [p122:9]: John BARTLEY 021201-01311 [John b bef 1775; wife b bef 1775]

Here is the info I have on William BARTLETT:

Sometimes there is no "smoking gun" readily available, like a bible that says who the parents and children were, or a will that lays it all out - in those cases we use the "preponderance of evidence" method. The BARTLETTs in Buncombe Co, NC were often near each other in the census records, and it's pretty clear they were all from the same family. Have you looked into the Probate Records or annual Tax Lists?

Hope this helps you;

Jim Bartlett
