Bartholomew, Caleb, was born in Groton February 4, 1811. His father was Jesse Bartholomew, who came to the town
of Dryden and settled at Etna April 1, 1812. He bought 180 acres of land, part of which is still in the possession
of Caleb, our subject. The latter received his education in the common schools of the town, to which he has added
through life by close reading and observation. He was the youngest of thirteen children, and is now the only representative
of that generation left. At the age of twenty two he married Laura W. Gaston, daughter of James Gaston, and they
had five children, two sons being deceased, one dying in infancy, and Norman G. who was killed at the battle of
the Wilderness. The daughters are Lydia, Louise E., and Lottie M. In 1840 Mr. Bartholomew established himself in
Etna, manufacturing agricultural implements, pumps and scales, which business he carries on to the present day.
He has held the office of supervisor, etc., and was one of the charter members of the Groton Iron Bridge and Mfg.
