Biography of Greene Bartlett
Lake County, CA Biographies





BARTLETT, GREENE. This worthy gentleman, whose portrait will be found in the body of this work, was born in Louisville, Kentucky, October 2, 1835. When he was but a child his parents moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas. Here the subject of this sketch resided on a farm until 1856, when he crossed the plains to California, bringing a drove of cattle. He arrived in the fall of that year, and spent the time till 1858 in Solano County. He then returned via Panama to the East, and in 1859 he again crossed the plains, bringing a drove of cattle as far as Salt Lake City, where he sold them, and then came to California, bringing a few mules. He then purchased a band of sheep, and in July, 1860, settled in Berryessa Valley, Napa County. While here he did his own herding, and contracted the rheumatism so badly that he was obliged to go to the mountains for his health. In June, 1870, while hunting and camping, he happened to discover the wonderful medicinal and healing qualities of the water in what is now known as the Bartlett Spring, by the effect it produced upon him. He at once located one hundred and sixty acres of land on which the spring is situated, and has since made that place his home.
