I'm so glad you responded! I have run into so many dead ends on the Hartley side of my family. I had never found any viable candidates for George's brothers in Wisconsin, so I always assumed he had come with his first wife Mary's family, but I never knew her maiden name, so I could never be certain. This is exciting! Have you been able to locate the passenger list of them coming over from England? I've never been able to find it.
George was married to Jane Trevillian, who was born in Wisconsin in 1838 to James Trevillian and Jane Rule, both emmigrants from Cornwall, England. I can't say much for William's Jane, as I never knew any of George's brothers, but I can help in the search now that I know! (do you know the names of his other brothers?)
George and Jane had a son named Thomas Hartley who moved to Allamakee County, Iowa, and their other son (my GGgrandfather) William Hartley was married to his first wife in Allamakee County, Iowa, I should have known there was a connection!
Thank you so much for your post!
I look forward to working on the Hartley family with you!
