In the fall of 1846, Thomas Hart with all his family, 3 of whom were by then married, moved to Indiana from Eastern Tennessee.They wanted to be free of the Indians. The journey, which took 5 weeks, was pleasant in the autumn weather. They brought with them both horses and cattle. They settled on Clifty Creek in Bartholomew County near the home of Thomas's father Joseph, and both Thomas and Elizabeth lived here until their deaths. Thomas became an elder in the Presbyterian Church of both Columbus and Sand Hill, and he held these offices until he died on July 28, 1865 at the age of seventy-four years. Buried in Sandy Hill Cem. Batholomew Co. Indiana
