Hart, Daryl (26 OCT 1901 - 31 JAN 1920)

Daryl Hart, son of Mr. Charles W. Hart of Marshfield, died at the Navy Hospital in New York City on Jan. 31, 1920, after a week's heroic fight against the Grim Reaper. His death was caused by pneumonia. At the first indication of serious illness his father was summoned and was at his son's bedside when the final summons came.

The remains of the young man, clad in his naval uniform of blue, were brought to Marshfield, where funeral services were held at the Presbyterian Church. The guards escorted the body to the church and return to the depot, where it was put on board the train to be brought here (Humbird, Clark County, Wis.) for burial.

Daryl, son of Charles and Dora Hart, was born in Humbird, Oct. 26, 1901. He lived with his parents here, at Mankato, Minn., and at Marshfield, where his mother died in 1909. A year ago he enlisted in the navy as a bugler, was trained at the Great Lakes station, and has been assigned to a ship for his first ocean voyage when stricken. He is survived by his father and one brother, Horace.

The flag covered casket was borne to the grave by six ex-navy young men of the village, Clarence Fristad, Jesse Tubbs, Henry Sparkes, Phillip Bell, Masley Stuve. The remains arrived here Wednesday noon, and were taken to the home of the grandparents of the deceased, Mr. and Mrs. N. Hart, and from there to the Houghtonburg cemetery, where the burial was made beside his mother. Rev. J. W. Kendall officiated at the burial service.

Relatives from away attending the funeral were Mrs. Anna Perry of Chicago, Miss Iris Hart of Shell Lake, Mrs. Braman of Rochester.
