Phoebe Hartt and Daniel Smith
Phoebe Hartt Smith
Phoebe Hartt, was born on January 27, 1809 in Sunbury County, New Brunswick to Thomas and Phoebe Phillips Hartt.
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 Edward and Clapman, Jr., settled in the valley.
Daniel Edward Smith was born on November 8, 1802. He married Phoebe Hartt on December 18, 1835, and three of their children lived in Hoyt valley. Their daughter, Phoebe Smith, married the Reverend Henry Hartt.
Phoebe may have been a school teacher; she may have taught her husband how to read and write. All of Phoebe and Daniel's daughters were school teachers. Elizabeth became the first registered female doctor in New Brunswick. Elizabeth's life story is included in a book about Canadian Women Doctors.
Phoebe Hartt Smith died on January 27, 1893. Daniel Smith died on October 24, 1861.
