Mary was born Sept 6, 1793. For some reason Mary was brought up by her Aunt Ruth (Estey) Everett, daughter of John and Molly (Hartt) Estey. Mary Elizabeth Estey married Rev. Samuel Hartt Jr. on October 17, 1822. She lived a very busy life being a pastors wife and having 11 children to care for by herself, since Samuel was away starting churches. On her gravestone it reads: " Mary Estey beloved wife of Rev. Samuel Hartt, died March 8, 1865 aged 64 years, faithful and affectionate wife, mother and friend. They rest from their labors." They both are buried in the Lower Waterville Baptist Cemetery, Carleton Co. NB Children of Samuel & Mary (Estey) Hartt: Thomas 1823-1885, William Dell 1826-1902, Samuel E. 1828-1897, Rev.
