Julia was born 1838 to George and Jane(Fowler) Hartt. She married David Pugh in 1856. He was born in 1829 and died April 5, 1896. The Headquarters, Fredericton, New Brunswick Dec 5, 1860 On Monday last. Mr. David Pugh, who resided at the Nashwaaksis Stream near its junction with the Saint John river, opposite Fredericton, left home in the company of his wife in order to come to town. On reaching the ice, Mr. Pugh passed over the worst part of it, and then returned for Mrs. Pugh but their weight was too much for the imperfect ice to bear, and they broke through together: but succeeding for a short time to keep their heads over water their cries were heard by the neighbours who hastened to their rescue, Mr. Pugh was taken out in a state of insensibility, while we deeply regret to add, the utmost efforts afterward made it resuscitate Mrs. Pugh proved unavailing. The deceased, we understand,was in the 22nd year of her age, and leaves two young children. Children of Julia Hartt and David Pugh: Horace Dell 1856-1928, George L. 1858-1927
