ISAAC HART was the son of Nathaniel and Clarissa Hart and was born in either Cambridge, MA. or Dublin NH on April 26, 1837. He departed this life in Barry, IL on April 25, 1912, aged 74 years, 11 months and 29 days. He was but six months old when his parents came to Illinois and located west of Barry on the old home place, where Isaac grew to manhood - receiving such education as the common schools of those days afforded. He was united in marriage with Sallie Ann Gorton on September 5, 1860, and to this union four children were born--namely: Mrs. A. __ Bain and Mrs. George Glatfield of Barry; Frank and Fred of New Canton. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Clara Davis, and one brother, Grandville Hart of Barry to mourn his death, besides a host of other relatives and friends. He was stricken with paralysis last summer and was in a serious condition for a time, but rallied and was able to go about some, but was in a very weak condition of mind and body. His final sickness lasted but a few days--during which time he was not conscious of such suffering and passed quietly to the realms beyond as above stated. Funeral services were conducted from the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. __ Bain, Saturday, April 27, 1912, at 2:00 p.m., by Rev. D. V. Gowdy, pastor of the Methodist church, and burial was made in the Barry cemetery. Children of Isaac and Sallie: Mrs. A. __ Bain and Mrs. George Glatfield of Barry; Frank and Fred of New Canton.
