Charles Harold Hartt,
"Hal", was the oldest child of Edward and Susan Hartt. Harold
was born October 1, 1895, never married and died November 2, 1989 He
was a local veteran of WW I. He helped with the Hartt information
for the book "Days of Old." A story is told that Harold one day
took a pick axe while talking with two of his friends, John McLaughlin and Bliss
Nason, and began picking in a bit of depression. He broke through three or
four inches of shale and discovered what proved to be a fourteen-inch, coal
seam, the thickest ever found locally. A large pit was dug and as the coal
was removed it was thrown into a bin where it could be seen for years as little
was ever taken away. They found the presence of shale and other
adulterants rendered the coal of inferior quality, incapable of producing a
clean, hot fire. Coal mining in the Fredericton vicinity was proved most
disappointing. Hal is buried in the Gladstone Cemetery on Pride's Landing
Road, Fredericton, N.B.
