George C. Hartt and Jane
George C. Hartt
George C. Hartt was born in 1796. He married Jane Fowler. Jane was born in 1801 and died on January 13, 1846. She may be buried in Tarrytown, New York.
Sometime after Jane's death, George married Margaret Jane (Martha Jane to the family); her last name is not certain but it, too, may have been Fowler. She was born in 1812 in New Brunswick.
George C. Hartt was a seller of mineral water and on the 1861 N.B. Census was called a "quack doctor". They lived in Sheffield, N.B. and sometime between 1861 and 1871, they moved to the USA, possibly to Massachusetts. They are not listed on the 1871 census.
Hartt, an elderly man and dealer in `mineral water,' died on Friday afternoon.
It appears he had been called at the shop of Anthony Appleby on King St. east (St. John) in regard to the storage of some barrels, suddenly raised his arms as exclaiming
`Oh, Oh' fell back upon the chair. Dr Travers was sent for, and on his arrival, it was found life had fled. The Doctor was of the opinion that death had proceeded from rupture of the heart. An inquest was held before Coroner Earle. Mr.
Hartt leaves a wife and son, the latter of whom was in Fredericton at the time of the sad occurrence."
