Backstory on J & R Bartlett:
Joseph and Robert S. Bartlett were from Binghamton, New York. Sons of Capt. Isaac Bartlett, whom was a Connecticut blacksmith and wheelwright, who in 1813 lived in Owego, N. Y. In 1829, Isaac settled at Chenango Point (now Binghamton). Joseph and Robert Bartlett opened a shop on Court Street where between 1829 and 1834 they made flintlock Kentucky rifles at first, then percussion arms. In 1834, the site of their shop was taken over by the state for a canal project. Joseph and Robert put up a larger new building on Franklin (now Washington) Street, employing at times as many as 25 hands. From 1834 on, the city changed its name to Binghamton. Thus, the Bartlett arms were marked with the new name, instead of Chenango Point. The plant discontinued about 1850 as it was unable to compete with cheaper machine-made arms made on production basis.
