|Mary Ann (Hayes) & Samuel E. Hartt
Samuel was born on May 9, 1828, in Kingston, York,
NB, to Rev. Samuel Jr. & Mary (Estey) Hartt.
Samuel married Mary Ann Hayes on June 14, 1859, at
Jacksontown, Carleton, NB, in a ceremony officiated\
by his father. Mary Ann was born in Norton, Kings
Co., the daughter of William B. & Mary (Burlock)
Hayes, and died August 1906 at Leeds, Maine. Samuel
died March 18, 1897, and is buried in the old Free
Baptist Church Cemetery, Third Tier, near his father,
mother and many other members of the family, in
Carleton Co., NB.
Mary Ann died while visiting her daughter Adelia
(Hartt) Gordon who lived in Leeds, ME, on her
husbandís family farm. We donít know if she was
buried in Leeds, ME, or back in NB. Physician C. W.
Randlette, M.D. of Monmouth, ME, reported her cause
of death as endocarditis.
Samuel knew his Bible, even though he had not had
much education. He could pronounce the difficult
words in the Old Testament with ease. He read the
Bible a lot to his children. He was a good reader,
giving expression to the stories so that they came alive
to his hearers. A person could almost see the prophet
Elijah picking up his skirts while running before the
kingís chariot, and hear the rain falling. He called his
daughter Lillian his little petty darling growing up in
the world to see trouble.
