|Wm Dell Hartt, aged 77 years. died at his residence at Woodstock, N.B., on Sunday morning, May 25th , 1903 of paralysis. Bro. Hartt was the second son of the late Rev. Samuel Hartt. He was born at Kingsclear, York, Co. but when 5 years old his father moved to Simonds, Carleton Co and later Fourth Tier, Jacksontown. He was converted early in life and united with the Free Christian Baptist church at Third Tier, Jacksontown, and endeavored to live godly. He married Miss Lucinda Loomer, of Jacksontown, by whom he had four children, three daughters and one boy. The mother and two children died some time ago, leaving the daughters, Nellie and Laura, who survive him. He resided for about 20 years in all at Upper Woodstock; where at one time he was a merchant. About a year and a half ago the family moved to Woodstock, where he died. Bro Hartt was always a strong, rugged man, but about 7 years ago he injured his foot, which caused blood poisoning, and about 5 years al he was attacked with a creeping paralysis, which made him an invalid. Bro. Hart was a man of more than ordinary intelligence, a great reader, and having a good memory he often quoted the saying of Plato, Socrates, Shakespeare, the poets. Etc. When the doctrine of full salvation was agitated in 1882, he accepted it, and was a bold defender of this blessed experience. Having moved to Upper Woodstock for the second time, he united with the Reformed Baptist Church there, and on moving to Woodstock Church, of which he was a member at his death.
Though suffering much from weakness, he never kept his bed till about 10 days before his death. He bore his long illness with patience and resignation to the will of his heavenly Father, and fell peacefully asleep in Jesus.
His funeral took place on the 27th and was attended by this writer. His body was buried at the Old Burying Grounds at Third Tier, where his father, mother, brother, sister, wife, two children and other relatives lie.
Only four brothers out of a large family of seven and four sisters survive him, namely:--Rev. John Hartt of Me.; Rev. Henry Hartt of Jacksontown, Rev. Aaron Hartt and Mr. Judah Hartt at present of Montana U.S.A.|
