I am search for the descendants of HENRY M. HART and the parents of JOHN N. HART. Henry is the son of John N. Hart and Eliza Harriet Hall. He was born in NC on May 3, 1820. He is listed on the 1830 Cencus of Henderson Co., TN with his father, stepmother, and 1/2 sibblings. His mother had died and his father remarried in 1825 to Salina Lizabeth Hall. Were John's wives related? Both were Hall.
In my research I have found that the middle initial "M" in Henry M. Hart is sometimes missread and written as "W"; on the cencus and his land purchase. The same is true for the "N" in John N. Hart, I have found it as "M". The "old style script handwriting" is hard for some to decifer. In the "John N. Hart" family Bible, it is clearly written as an John N and Henry M. Hart.
This is what I have found on Henry M. Hart:
1820 -- NC --he was born on May 3, 1820
(the 1870 cencus is the only one that states he was born in SC, all others state NC, his younger sister was born NC)
1830 -- Henderson Co., TN -- living with his father
1851 -- Lauderdale Co., AL -- married 1st wife Jane C. Sullivan
1852 -- Lauderdale Co., AL -- Jane died and buried at
Wesley Chapel Cem.
1853 -- Lauderdale Co., AL -- married 2nd wife, Amanda Turner
1854/55 --South Carolina -- daughter, Harriet, born
1856/57 --South Carolina -- daughter, Virginia, born
1858 --South Carolina -- son, John Melvin Hart,
born on Dec. 18, 1858
1860 --Lauderdale Co., AL -- purchased 320 acres of land near Gravelly Springs
1862/63 --Alabama -- daughter, Lizzie, born
1902 --Lauderdale Co., AL -- Died, buried at Wesley Chapel Cem.
1907 --Lamar Co., TX -- Amanda Turner, Hart died and body was sent to Lauderdale Co., AL for burial.
(where? not found -- yet)
I would greatly appreciate any help locating any any leads on this family. I have information on the other children of John N. Hart, but just recently found Henry.
Amanda Turner Hart died in Lamar Co., TX on August 1, 1907. The arrangement were "charged to Mrs. Jimmie Wade, Brookston, TX; Body shipped to Florence, AL"
I will gladly share any information.
Thanks, Dianna Hart
