Hart, John G. (Aug. 10, 1842 - Feb. 24, 1917)
VETERAN SOLDIER AND PIONEER PASSES AWAYS. John G. Hart, a veteran of the civil war and among the earliest pioneers of this state, passed to the great beyond at his home in Nasonville, Saturday, February 24th, leaving to mourn his demise a long line of relatives and many admiring friends who will ever remember him as a citizen of the highest worth.
Deceased was born in Union Town, Pennsylvania, August 10th, 1842 and in 1862 was united in marriage to Miss ELizabeth Taylor. Shortly after his marriage he enlisted in the service of his country joining Company F., 14th Pennsylvania Cavalry as chief buglar serving until the end of the war. During his service he took part in fifty-two engagements. After the close of the war in 1865, he moved to Nasonville where he has since resided. Twenty five years ago, he was stricken with total blindness but even though bereft of his sight he was ever cheerful and lived to make others happy by his presence. In addition to his wife he is survived by five children, twenty-four grandchildren and six great grand children. The children are Ross Hart, Mrs. Charles Ingle, Mrs. Edward Ingel, Nasonville, Mrs. Minnie Kidder of Miles City, Montana and Mrs. Seth Smith of Arizona.
Funeral services took place Tuesday from the Nasonville Presbyterian church Rev. Grenfell of Lindsey officiating, an immense throng of neighbors and friends turning out to pay their last respects to a patriot and nobel citizen. As a fitting emblem, and in honor to his memory, the beautiful casket in which the remains were laid to rest was covered with the star spangled banner, an emblem for which he gave three years of his life to preserve. He was a good soldier, an honorable type of mankind and a friend worthy the friendship of any man.
