BARTLEY, Mordecai, governor of Ohio, born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, 16 December 1783; died in Mansfield, Ohio, 10 October 1870. He attended school, and worked on his father's farm until 1809, when he moved to Ohio. In the war of 1812 he served in the northwest, under General Harrison, as captain and adjutant. He settled in Richland County in 1814, and remained there till 1834, when he removed to Mansfield and engaged in mercantile pursuits. Mr. Bartley was elected to the Ohio senate in 1817, and in 1818 was chosen, by the legislature, registrar of the land-office of Virginia military district school lands. He resigned his registrar ship in 1823, having been elected member of congress, where he remained until 3 March 1831. In 1844 he was elected governor of Ohio on the Whig ticket. During the Mexican war, when the president issued his call for troops, Governor Bartley, though opposed to the war, promptly responded, superintending their organization in person. In 1846 he retired to private life, declining a renomination. He remained a Whig until the disruption of that party, and subsequently acted with the republicans.
