Letter to New York Herald:
My father was one of the earliest residents of Guthrie, arriving there in May 1, 1889, a few days after the "opening of the territory" and remained a resident until 1893 when he removed with his wife and two sons to New York City. His wife died in 1910 and he is survived by his two sons, Edward E. Hart and Albert J. Hart, both of whom are married and reside in New York.
My father lived on North First Street, corner of Warner Avenue (N. E. corner) in one of several houses, which he built on three corners of above, named intersecting streets. He was for a time a member of the city council and at all times took a keen and lively interest in all matters looking towards the improvement of the city.
He was a member of Trinity Church in Guthrie and was for a long time a member of the vestry and the junior warden. He was one of the first Freemasons raised in Oklahoma and belonged to Blue Lodge and Chapter in Guthrie. There are undoubtedly many people in Guthrie who know my father.
Mr. Hart was a contemporary and friend of ex-Gov. Steele, Seay and Barnes, Congressman Flynn, Judge Foster, Bishop Brooke of the Protestant Episcopal Church Mr. Fislon ex Mayor Spengel, Mr. Gammon and many others of the pioneer residents.
