From: A History of the John C. Hart Memorial Library by Charlotte Martens Lee May 17, 1970: https://ne-np.facebook.com/groups/43962355682/permalink/10156706535295683/ However, since we are celebrating the fifty years of existence of the John C. Hart Memorial Library, I think it is only fitting and proper that you know something about John C. Hart. This information has been gleaned from Scharf's History of Westchester County, and from Mr. Hart's great grand daughter, Viola Travis Crawford, with whom I have been in touch. John Coleridge Hart was the son of James Hart and Ann Eliza Roake. He was born at Shrub Oak June 22, 1823, and died in New York City May 3, 1872, the ninth of ten children. Mr. Hart attended the district school at Shrub Oak, and left there at the age of sixteen for New York City, where he went to work as a clerk in a drug store at 20 Beekman Street. His salary was $100 for the first year and $200 for the next. In a few years he became a partner in the business. Later on, he bought out his partner and became sole owner. In 1843, he married Mary Ann Allen, daughter of Stephen Allen, former Mayor of New York. He was also a director of the East River Savings Bank . This sounds like a classic example of a country boy making good in the big city. In 1854, he bought from John Hyatt, the house that now houses our library, together with 48 acres. He had admired the place since boyhood and hoped to own it some day. The Hyatts built a new house nearby. That house is now the Gateway Apartments. In 1866, Mr. Hart was on the committee for building the present Shrub Oak Methodist Church, and was its secretary and treasurer. He is referred to in Scharf's as a useful citizen and kind neighbor. No doubt he was highly respected by the community. He had a great love of the country, as shown by the diaries he kept. He tells of planting crops and trees , and of his interest in birds and wild flowers. Many of the unusual trees he planted grace the spacious grounds today. Mr. Hart had four daughters, Mary, Viola, Catherine and Virginia. Viola married Charles Carpenter, who was, you may remember, one of the first trustees. Catherine married Dr. Dresser, and apparently inherited the real estate from her father. Since she had no children, it was her wish to leave it to the Town of Yorktown for a library and as a memorial in Shrub Oak to her father. Now, more than fifty years later, we are still reaping the benefits of her bequest. I have often wondered whether the Town of Yorktown would have had any library at all had it not been for her. "Soon a New York lawyer and grandson of John C. Hart took an a ctive interest in the library.-------- John C. Travis------ used to ship vast amount of books in crates to the library which were probably bought from estates. " ________________________________ According to Scharf's History of Westchester Co, NY, there was a Hart's Corners and a Hartsdale, along Central Avenue, north of Greenville. On p. 454 , there is a John Coleridge Hart listed, as b. Shrub Oak, Jun 22, 1822 , of English descent.

General Notes: Husband - Edward Sands
An Edward Sands was a Surgeon's Mate in the 4th NY from 17th August to December 1775 according to "Historical Register of Officers of the Continental Army" by Francis Bernard Heitman. I can't eliminate the possibility that this was another Edward Sands but it seems likely that it was this one, as he would have been 16 in 1775 and many of his relatives were active in the Continental Army at this time (see "History of the Sands Family" in the Cow's Neck Peninsula Historic al Society Bulletin, October 1968). See the entry of his grandmother, Mary (Cornell) Sands as to her Quaker religion. Although Quakers do not believe in serving in a combat role in war, they do serve in medical roles. Thus, Edward having served as a Surgeon's mate could be the result of Quaker influence. According to Manhattan directories, he was a ship's carpenter at 37 Roosevelt from 1791 to 1793. This profession, presumably, explains his move from Sands Point to the port of New York . In 1794 he moved to 43 Roosevelt and added grocer to his profession . In 1795 he was just a grocer at the same address. In 1796 he moved to 68 James St. in Manhattan, where he remained until his death. His estate inventory shows that he owned two framed houses (valued at $1500 ) at 68 James St. at the time of his death. Widow, Jane, was still living there in 1809 according to the 1809 Directory. This property, evidently, passed to his son, Elisha, who improved it. At the time of his death in 1860, it is described as a four story brick house and lot on the N.W. corner of James and Oak Streets with frame house on the rear. This property, presumably, included the shop, with the address of 71 James Street where Hart's sons Edward and Charles operated a pharmacy. The house no longer exists and is in an area which is now a large project called the Governor Alfred E. Smith Residential Houses. Elisha passed the property to his wife, who, evidently, disposed of it. Edward was the first member of this branch of the Sands family to move to Manhattan from Sand's Point. He and his sons and grandsons lived and worked on the Lower East Side just north of the South St. Seaport.
The will of Edwards' mother, Mary, recites that she got her land in Mamaroneck from Bartholemew Haddon (there is no deed in the Westchester Archives). I believe this to be the Bartholemew Haddon who was married to Sarah Guion. She was the daughter of John Guion and Anna Hart (NYGBS Record Jan. 1920 pg. 26-27) . Anna's brother was James Hart, the father of Jane, who married Edward. In addition, Bartholemew is the son of Job Haddon, whose wife, Elizibeth Griffin, is the sister of Deborah Griffin, Edward's mother's sister in law. This suggests that Edward met his wife through his mother's Westchester contacts. As Edward married Jane Hart in 1783, this suggests that his mother was already in Mamaroneck by that date. As related in the entry for his mother's second husband, William Sutton, Jane's father, James Hart's farm was on Budd's Neck, right across the Mamaroneck harbor from his mother's farm.

according to 1850 census she was living with her son in law John D. Camp in the Williamsburgh section of Brooklyn at that time.

General Notes: Husband - John Jay Hart
It is likely that John Jay Hart was named after one of our nations founding fathers, John Jay of New York. John Jay was born December 12 , 1745. to a prominent and wealthy family in the Province of New York , Jay attended Columbia University and then practiced law. Establishing a reputation in New York, Jay was elected to serve as delegate to the First and Second Continental Congresses. These groups debated whether the Colonies should declare independence from Britain. Of all the nation's founding fathers, John Jay held more high offices than any other. He become Minister to Spain during the Revolution, and Secretary of Foreign Affairs under the Articles of Confederation. With Benjamin Franklin and John Adams, John Jay was the author and key negotiator of the Treaty of Paris ending the Revolution. He was appointed the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, and later became Governor of the State of NewYork. He also wrote that state's first constitution in 1777 and produced, with Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, the Federalist Papers that helped convince the voters of New York to ratify the United States Constitution. He died on May 17th, 1829. John Jay Hart was born twelve years later, in New York. John Jay Hart served in the Kansas 8th Infantry Regiment, on the side of the North during the Civil War. His records say; "John J Hart, Claimed Residence in Greensburg (NY), Enlisted 20 January 1862, Corporal, "H" Co. 8th Infintry Regiment Kansas, Mustered Out at Huntsville, AL on 28 Jan 1865." After the war, he went to Salem, Nebraska where he met and married Alverda (Margaret), and where most of his children were born. Alverda was the daughter of Davis Kinnison, a physician. John Jay Hart was elected to represent Richardson County in House of Representatives of the Eleventh Session of the Territorial Legislature of the Territory of Nebraska in 1866. The following is taken from the records of that Session; Quote "The eleventh session of the Territorial Legislature met at Omaha, January 4, 1866. The Council was: T. L. Griffey, E. A. Allen, B. E. B. Kennedy, J. R. Porter, J . Albertson, J. S. Miller, J. W. Chapman, John Bennet, O. P. Mason, A . S. Holladay, O. P. Bayne, J. N. McCasland. The officers were: O. P. Mason, President; W. E. Harvey, Chief Clerk; William W. Watson, Assistant Clerk; Charles Ulry, Doorkeeper. The House: Richardson, L. Crounse, William Parchen, J. D. Ramsey, --------John Jay Hart--------; Pawnee, John R. Butler; Nemaha, W. B. Phelps, John Green, W. A. Pollock ; Otoe, John H. Maxon, James Thorn, M. S. Campbell, Albert Tuxburv, James A. Gilmore; Cass, Joseph Arnold. W. F. Chapin, Samuel Maxwell, Benjamin Austin; Johnson, James Robinson; Lancaster, John Cadman;Clay , Lancaster, Seward and Saunders, Marcus Brush; Sarpy, T. H. Robertson, N. P. Lefler; Douglas, G. B. Luke, J. W. Paddock, C. H. Brown, Fred Drexed, J. G. Megeath; Dodge, J. G. Smith; Platte, G. C. Barnum; Washington, E. H. Clark, Charles Eisley; Dakota, Cornelius O'Connor; Dakota, Cedar, Dixon and L'eau qui Court, R. H. Wilbur; Dakota. Cedar and L'eau qui Court, L. E. Jones. The officers were: James G. Megeath , Speaker; George May, Chief Clerk; E. S. Towle, Assistant Clerk; Chester Lusk, Sergeant-at-Arms; Dennis Dugan, Doorkeeper. The preceding year had witnessed the close of the rebellion and the return of national peace; but the Indian war upon the western borders of Nebraska still continued when this Legislature met. During the year 1865, the savages, emboldened by temporary successes, had grown exceedingly reckless in their assaults upon settlers and upon the overland stages and telegraph lines. Outrages of the most atrocious character had been repeatedly perpetrated. It had become necessary to call on Congress for more stringent action for the suppression of this form of lawlessness. This year (1866) the laws of the Territory were revised, arranged and issued in the form of revised statutes, the immense labor being completed in time for presentation early in the session and approved February 12, 1866. The new laws went into effect July 1. That mighty undertaking, the Union Pacific Railroad, was so far in hand that, with the beginning of 1866, fifty-five miles were completed west of Omaha. As this subject receives detailed attention elsewhere, further allusion in this place need not be made to the work." End Quote John Jay and Alverda were married in 1866. Per 1870 Richardson Co. , NE p g 114 Salem Post Office census: Hart, John J., age 27 from NY, Buying /Selling cattle. Had $5,000 real estate and $5,000 personal property . Alverda, age 26 from VA, Mary age 3 (b. NE); Gedney age 2 (b. NE) ; Rockwill, Ellen 21 b. WI (may have been a boarder/housekeeper). The 1880 Salem, Richardson Co, NE census did not list John Jay. This is consistent with notes of Edith Bresee (their granddaughter) which said John Jay Family came to MO in or before 1879. Edith had also said that John Jay was still in MO when she was born which was 1899. She also had told her daughter, Ruth Bresee Guthrie that John Jay gave their farm to son Gedney Hart. This was probably early 1900's as Gedney did not leave MO until about 1923. After leaving Nebraska, John Jay and Alverda moved to the Peal Bend Community near Warsaw, MO. Anna, Samuel and Monmouth were all born in Missouri. John Jay may have moved to Kansas City, Missouri where a John J. Hart was listed in the City Directory of 1889-91. His place of business was listed as " 563 Walnut" and his occupation was listed as "saloon". In 1888, John Jay was listed in the "Benton County, Missouri Early Birth Records " as father to Monmouth, occupation- "farmer". John Jay would have been about 47 year old, at this time. John Jay and Alverda moved to Winthrop, ARK. probably after 1910. Patricia Gilbert has an original 1 920 letter postmarked Winthrop, ARK from John Jay to his granddaughte r Edith Hart. He writes about believing in woman's rights to marry, have a home and family...and warns her not to wait too long and be an old maid (Edith married Loyd Bresee in 1922). The letter also discusses his x-ray treatment for cancer, his wife cooking too much food for the two of them and he wishes the best to Edith's sisters by name . The letter's handwriting/grammar supports that John Hart was well educated. ___________ From the 1889 Benton County Tax List; Cole Township: Boone Hart Tom Township: Alvirda V. Hart, J. J.

Ark 2-6-1920 My Dear Grandaughter Edith , I often think of when I layed in my Cot at the old Place with my broken thigh fearing that my little Baby or her mother might be cold down at your Fathers House without the House being plastered. Then I think when I get so I could go down with crutches and see you a Bright Black eyed thing so good lying bed looking around your Mother her Work then I think how you, John & Annie running to meet me when you see me coming.....then I think of you all up on Place I sold Sam? , now I t hink of you as a young lady 21 years old . Well Edith I believe in Wo men's rights to Marry, have a Home and Family of her own. Do not do like the old maid did wait until you are too old and then take a crooked stick. Her father said you could have done much better being long a go. She said Father go out in that Timber and cut the straighted pole as you go through. She came back with a crooked one but then your Great Aunt Lizzie two girls waited and seem happy in their late choice . I went down to Laursport Loll? Wednesday and took Xray treatment to kill my germs of cancer. I must go back in six weeks again for treatment. I yem? Turn down there for treatment Loss of time?. Told that they know several who had been cured by Xray treatment alone. So I am leaving nothing that I think may save me from a return of the cancer. I caught a little cold coming ? Night before last but I think I throw it off in day or two. I like this country our coldest has been 1 6 D F'heat just before Laurine? 17-18-26 and 28 ?? is the coldest before sunrise. White frost of night frequently fine warm sunshiny day. The doctor that gave me Xray treatment said my Beard ? would all come out on that side of my face. I asked him if it would come back . He gave me no satisfaction. I left home at 6 "A"M" got back at "11:40 "P" M". Well your grandmother is all the morning washing dishes and getting dinner. You know how many dishes she can dirty & you know how much cooking she has to do for her and me but then she enjoys it and must have something to do to kill time. Well I managed to write John a long letter the other day. How is my witches getting along and my baby Bernice and Ora. I know Annie is big enough Tell her to not hurt herself at Bathe? Ball and stim? little From how she is spank. Kiss & Hug Frankie for me and O accept thanks for Christmas gift . Your old g randpa with Love & Best wishes to all- John Juy Hart" My Notes- Who i s Aunt Lizzie? Could that be Eliz. Hart, d/o Elijah Gedney Hart and H annah Downing i.e. John Jay's Aunt, Edith's Great Aunt. John, Bernice , Annie, Ora are all siblings of Edith. Frankie is likely Eugene Frank Hart b. 1915, Edith's brother. ______________________ From; Marie (via Pat Gilbert) who was a lookup volunteer of the Cemetery surveys from "Little River Co, AR Cemetery Census" whose work was done primarily in 1979.

Possibly he re married and was widowed or could be an error. 2) I had his death Aug 8 - this has Aug 9. 3) Alverda's mother's name given as Virginia Kinnison- her obit says mother's name was Mary. 4) Interesting that Gedney did not complete Alverda's father's name Davis, since this was Gedney' s middle name. 5) Alverda's birthplace shows Wheeling, VA but obit has Wheeling, WV (She always showed VA in census records- may be that was considered VA when she was born.) All our previous notes had her born in Springfield, Hampshire Co. WV. Til Later, Pat ______________

According to her obituary Minnie was born in St. Louis Co. but other notes found at Edith Bresee's home showed St. Charles Co. There is an LDS ancestry chart showing Wentzville as birthplace which is St. Charles Co. MO. Minnie died in the Fairview Nursing Home in Sedalia, MO but was brought back to Warsaw for burial. She was raised in Fairfield, MO but moved to Warsaw after marrying Gedney. According to her obit "She loved nature in its fullest , enjoyed going fishing and being in the great outdoors. She was also a lover of good music and spent many hours playing the piano..even during her later years." Marriage data supported by certified copy of Benton Co. marriage license. Minnie was only 17 when married so her father John T.Eoff had to give his written assent to the marriage. Gedney was a Postmaster at Warsaw for several years. When he left Minnie Eoff in 1922-23 he moved to Winthrop, Ark. where his siblings and parents were. Gedney and Minnie were later divorced.

General Notes: Child - William Kennison Hart
Reser Funeral Home in Warsaw confirmed that William K. and Samuel F. Hart are buried in Riverside Cem. Sam's son Harold is also there and it says "Beloved son of Samuel F. and Ella". I'm guessing that Harold never married and he may have been an only child so Sam's line would have died out with his death.

Warren died in infancy. See notes on his mother Alverda.

General Notes: Child - Samuel Fischer Hart
Per Ruth Bresee in email dated 11/20/00 I vaguely remember hearing about Uncle Sam, Uncle Will and Uncle Mon - I know I've met some of them but being young I wasn't paying attention. When Dad was in the hospital in Sedalia in 1973, Mom spent nights with an aunt (??) in Sedalia and days with Dad until the doctor insisted she go back to Warsaw to rest. I got the impression that the aunt was really old so could have been Aunt Ella. Uncle Sam had a son, Harold J Hart from Sedalia. Per his obit he was killed in an auto accident in Denver CO. He was born Sep 10, 1910 and died 30 Oct 1985 at age 75. He was a Mason , Shriner and mbr of Scottish Rite; also WW ii vet. Survivors include an uncle Fred Pate, Colorado Sprgs; an aunt, Goldie Stone, Colo Sprgs (names not familiar) and several cousins.Buried Riverside, Warsaw . No mention of a wife, living or dead. Mary Lou could probably tell you more since they lived closer and spent more time in Warsaw. Don 't recall a Lizzie. Mom/Ruth ------------------------------------- - Samuel's obituary mentions Sam Hart of Sedalia, MO _______________ ___- From Pat Gilbert; Reser Funeral Home in Warsaw confirmed that William K. and Samuel F. Hart are buried in Riverside Cem. Sam's son Harold is also there and it says "Beloved son of Samuel F. and Ella". I 'm guessing that Harold never married and he may have been an only child so Sam's line would have died out with his death.

General Notes: Child - Helen Marie Hart
From Ruth Guthrie by email, 3/18/01 I checked SSD and found a date of death for "Mimi" [Helen Marie Hart Campion ]- 22 Dec 1996. I couldn't find a date for her sister "Bernie" [Bernice Ann Hart Burgess] but believe she died first - strange. Incidentally Mimi was quite a beauty in her college days and if my memory serves me right was on the cover of Life magazine in the 40s - Think it had something to do with coed beauties.
