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.
