Bartlett, Willard

Bartlett, Willard a Free-will Baptist minister, was born in Vermont, Oct. 9, 1782. When yoting he removed to Canada, where, at the age of thirteen, he was converted. He was licensed to preach the Gospel at twenty-two. After preaching several years, he was ordained at Wheelock, Vt., in 1814. Not long after this he removed to Melbourne, C. E., which was his home during the remainder of his life. A Church was formed in that place July 11, 1818, of 'which he took the pastoral charge, retaining it until the state of his health prevented his further service. He died Aug. 31, 1855. Mr. Bartlett is said to have been a man of deep thought, ready at all times to give a reason for his faith, and remarkable for his perseverance. See Free-will Baptist Register, 1857, p. 87. (J. C.
