Phoebe was born in 1851 to Aaron and Mary Jane (Alexander) Hartt in Fredericton Junction, NB. She spent her child hood in Fredericton Junction, where she was a member of the United Baptist Church. She was a woman of sweet Christian character, her kindly nature endearing her to all who knew her. She never married, In her early womanhood she kept house for her brother, William Dell Hartt, on the old farmstead. Always a lover of flowers, she had a beautiful garden, in a day when country flower gardens were rare, and no visitor ever left her door without a nose gay. In 1901, she left with her brother for Creelman, Saskatchewan, where he died in 1923, his body being brought home for burial. In 1924, Phoebe came back to New Brunswick to make her home with relatives in St. Andrews, where she had lived since and where she passed away Sunday evening. She is buried in Gladstone cemetery in New Brunswick.
