: Portrait of Thomas W. Bartley. Upon the resignation of Governor Shannon in 1844, the Democratic speaker of the senate, Thomas W. Bartley, became acting Governor of Ohio on April 15, 1844. Bartley served until the close of the term in December of the same year. At that time he was succeeded as governor by his father, Mordecai Bartley, a succession which is unique in Ohio and at least rare in the history of state governments. View on Ohio Memory.
