Rev. Aaron Hartt, aged 83 years, a veteran preacher in the Church of the Nazarene, went to be with Jesus on Saturday morning, November 10, 1934 from his home in South Weymouth, Mass. Brother Hartt was ill for several weeks but was marvelously sustained by God in his affliction. He triumphed over all. He leaves a sorrowing wife, Helen (Libby) Hartt, who walked by his side for fifty-six years; and five children: Julius of Hartford, Conn: Mrs.Minnie Norris of Brockton, Mass, Mrs. Helen Gleason of Woodstock, Ontario. Guy of South Weymouth, Mass and Rev. Bertrand of Groton, South Dakota. All but the last named were present at their father’s dying bed and at the funeral, which was held from his late home in South Weymouth, Mass.
The floral offerings were beautiful. The service was in charge of Rev. S. W. Beers, superintendent of the new England District: Revs A. B. Riggs and W.E. Smith made short addresses.
Brother Hartt was well known in New Brunswick having been born in Jacksontown, New Brunswick. He was a son of Rev. & Mrs. Samuel Hartt Jr. He was converted in early life, but coming to New England drifted into a backslidden state, from which he was wonderfully reclaimed and later gloriously sanctified. He went back to the Province in the 1880’s and preached Holiness in the Free Christian Baptist Conference, which ministry culminated in the founding of the Reformed Baptist denomination. A multitude will rise up in the Day of Judgment to call him blessed.
He was a rugged strong, effective……..(the rest has been lost over the years).
