John, Samuel Jr, Samuel Sr., Jonathan, Samuel, Isaac
Rev. John Hartt was born to Rev. Samuel Jr. and wife Mary (Estey) Hartt on March 20, 1830 in Wakefield, Carleton Co., New Brunswick. He was one of eleven children, having had four sisters and six brothers. Elder John Hartt was a Primitive Baptist in New Brunswick, Maine and Nova Scotia. Two of his brothers were also in the Ministry; Aaron, a Free Christian Baptist and Reformed Baptist; and Henry, a Free Christian Baptist and Primitive Baptist. Rev. John married Clarissa (Calarisfa) E. Hammond on December 24, 1857 in New Brunswick. Calarisfa was born in December of 1823 in Victoria Co., New Brunswick. To this union they had one child, a daughter, Irene Hammond Hartt. Little Irene was born October 3, 1858 and died as a young infant on October 31. 1858. Calarisfa Hartt died only a few years after her daughter on Aug 5, 1862 at the age of 39. Rev. John Hartt married a second time to Amanda Caroline Kelly on August 8, 1868 in Alva, Arrostook, Maine. Amanda was born in Blissville, Sunbury Co., New Brunswick. Amanda gave birth to a son, Judah Frank Hartt, on June 29, 1869 and died about five weeks later, on August 2, 1869, at Castle Hill, Arrostook, Maine. Rev. John married a third time on February 8, 1870 in Maple Grove Ft. Fairfield, Arrostock, Maine. His third wife, Rebecca L. Kelly, was a sister to Amanda, his second wife. One can only imagine that he needed help raising young Judah and that Rebecca would be a natural for this role. Rebecca and Rev. John had another son, John Kelly Hartt, on May 13, 1871 in Maine or Ft. Fairfield Arrostook, Maine. John Hartt had a remarkable memory. He could recite portions of the New Testament by heart. Those who knew Hartt said he was a forceful speaker. John died February 6, 1904. He is buried beside his wife Rebecca in Larlee Creek Cemetery Perth, Victoria County. New Brunswick.
