Bertram Family

 


William Butram was born in Jul 1759 at Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina to William Buttram and Margaret Willis. He died 10 Nov 1853 at Sparta, White County, Tennessee. On 29 Jan 1780 at Rowan County, NC he married Sarah Patterson. I have read that he was a private in the North Carolina Militia in the Revolutionary War.

Sarah Patterson was born either 1750 or 1760 at Iredell, North Carolina to James and Rosamond Patterson. She died abt 1820 at Sparta, White County, Tennessee. They had many children, some of whom I do not list here because I am unsure of them. However, here is a partial list:

1. Nicholas Bertram, b. 1780 at Chatham, Pitt Co., NC, d. 1860, His spouse is currently unknown to me, but they had at least one child, Sarah J. Bertram (b. between 1805 and 1810 in North Carolina; d. abt 1853) who married John Upchurch (1799-1873). Sarah and John Upchurch were the parents of Daniel Granville Upchurch (1835-1918) who married Lavina Hurt. They, in turn, were the parents of Tempey Elizabeth Upchurch (1860-1922) who married William Henderson Barrier and became the parents of my great grandmother, Polly Ethel Barrier - who married Thomas Sharp. So...this is a second direct line of mine in this particular family.

2. William Bertram, b. 1783, d. 1865, married Nancy Stinson. This is my primary direct line in the Bertram family. See below for more information about this family.
