Bits & Pieces
Here are a couple short stories about Bartlett people sent in by Brian Knight:

George Lincoln Knight (my
great-grandfather) of Bartlett
worked for the railroad for over fifty years.  He never missed even one day of work.

Paul Warren Knight (my uncle) of Bartlett was a member of the Bartlett Baseball Team prior to World War II.  He could pitch, mostly played 1st base, and could catch a fly ball behind his back when he played in the outfield.  Uncle Paul now rests in the peaceful ether of eternity at the
Arlington National Cemetery.  He was part of a torpedo bomber crew during World War II and is New Hampshire's most decorated World War II veteran.
