His Exc Josiah Bartlett Esq

Josiah Bartlett, Jr. (August 29, 1768 – April 16, 1838) was the son of Josiah Bartlett and a Democratic-Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from the state of New Hampshire.
Josiah was born to Josiah and Mary Bartlett in Kingston. He followed his father as both a physician and political leader. After graduating from Phillips Exeter Academy he studied medicine and started a practice in Stratham. He served in the State Senate from 1809 to 1810 and served as a Democratic-Republican in the United States House of Representatives from March 4, 1811 to March 3, 1813.
Following his Congressional service, Bartlett resumed the practice of medicine and was elected (again) to the State Senate. He served as a Presidential Elector in the 1824 election, supporting John Quincy Adams.
Bartlett continued the practice of medicine and died in Stratham in 1838.
Hon. Ezra Bartlett the third son of Hon. Josiah, of Kingston, was born Sept. 13, 1770; married Hannah Gale, of Kingston, Jan. 30, 1799, it being her 22nd birth day. He died Dec. 5, 1848, at the age of 78. His wife died Sept. 8, 1855, at the age of 78.
Ezra was also a physician and practised in Warren, Grafton Co., N. H., for several years ; removed to Haverhill, in the same county, 1812. I have made a short extract from Mr. Wm. Little's History of the Town of Warren: "Dr. Ezra Bartlett was a distinguished man in his day, often representing the towns of Warren and Coventry (now Benton). He was a side Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, Senator in the New Hampshire Senate, and a member of the Governor's Council. No man fifty miles away could compete with him as a physician, and he was also an excellent surgeon." Dr. Bartlett was appointed Judge, C. C. P., Grafton County, 1806; Judge of the Circuit Court, 1816; Chief Justice of the Court of Sessions^ 1820; Councillor, 1822-3-4; Elector of President in 1820, and again 1828; member of the New Hampshire Senate; and Collector of Internal Revenue, 5th Dist of N. H.
