Rev. Henry and Phoebe Hartt


Henry Hartt Family


Reverend Henry Hartt was the son of Reverend Samuel Hartt, Jr. and his wife, Mary Estey Hartt.  He was born in 1844 and died in 1918.


Daniel Smith Sr. and son, Clapman (1762-1843), arrived from Rowley, Massachusetts as Loyalists in 1784 and settled in Maugerville, New Brunswick.  It was their descendants who settled in the Hoyt Valley.  One of the early settlers, to come up the Oromocto River, was Clapman Smith.  He married Susannah Bailey (1773-1856) and they had ten children.  Two of their sons, Daniel Jr. and Clapman Jr.,  settled in the valley.


Daniel born in 1802 married Phoebe Hartt and three of their children lived in Hoyt Valley.  Their daughter, Phoebe Smith, married Reverend Henry Hartt.


Rev. Henry Hart passed away at his home in Jacksontown , N.B., on March 30, 1918, aged 74 years.  His death was unexpected and came as a shock to family and community.  The late Mr. Hartt had been a minister of the Gospel for nearly 39 years, having been ordained in the ministry of the Free Baptists in 1879.  His ministry was largely in the upper part of the province, although some time was spent on Grand Manan.  His many friends will feel the loss.  He is survived by his wife, Phoebe, and two daughters, Mrs. William Hazen, a missionary in India, and Mrs. Richard Syson of Stettler, Alberta, and one son, Bedford, at home.  The funeral was held on Monday, the Rev. A. L. Fenwick officiated.


Phoebe Smith Hartt died on February 14, 1920, at her home in Jacksontown, New Brunswick, at the age of 76 years.
