|Carrie was the seventh child of Aaron and Catherine (Dayton) Hartt. She was born Jan. 29, 1866, in
Marysville, York Co., NB. She was known by some of
the family as Caroline Amelia and she often went by
Carrie Alberta Hartt, but always she was called
“Carrie.” She died Dec. 1939 in Perth, NB. Carrie and
her younger sister, Grace Augusta, lost their parents at
a young age but were well looked after by other family
members. She attended teachers college in Fredericton
during the 1881-82 school year while living at the
home of Charles Hartt on King Street. Carrie accepted
her first teaching assignment in the “Scotch Colony” at
Upper Stonehaven, in the hills behind Perth on the St.
John River. The colonists were Scots from Aberdeen
shire that had arrived in 1873. She replaced John
MacPhail who had served as the first schoolmaster.
She was much loved by the Scots and was referred to
as ‘Miss Hartt’ until her death even though she married
James Watson MacPhail in 1891.
James Watson MacPhail’s story can be found on the

Cemetery, Victoria County.
