William Dell Hartt was born October 20, 1826, in Kingsclear, York County, New Brunswick to Rev. Samuel and Mary (Easty) Hartt. He married Lucinda Loomer September 5, 1848. William was a merchant. He was a strong, and rugged man until he injured his foot resulting in blood poisoning. Later, he was attacked with a creeping paralysis, which made him an invalid. William was a man of more than ordinary intelligence, a great reader, and having a good memory he often quoted the sayings of Plato, Socrates, and Shakespeare. When the doctrine of full salvation was agitated in 1882, he accepted it, and was a bold defender of this blessed experience. Having moved to Upper Woodstock for the second time, he united with the Reformed Baptist Church there, and on moving to Woodstock Church, of which he was a member at his death. William Dell Hartt died May 25, 1902. Together William and Lucinda had four children: Nettie E., 1850-1878; Nellie, 1851-1926; Isaac Newton, 1855-1857; and Laura, 1869.
