HART - At his residence near Savanah, Ashland county, Ohio,
Mar. 30, 1872, Mr. David Hart, in the 63rd year of his age.
The deceased was born and raised in Washington county,
Pa. He was the fifth son of the late David Hart, Esq.,
of Somerset township, in this county. He emigrated with his
young wife - a daughter of the late Robert M'Corkle - about
40 years ago, to what was then Richland county, Ohio - now Ashland.
He located on a farm or rather a tract of wood land (it being then
entirely in woods of heavy timber), where he resided until his
death. It is due to the memory of the deceased to say that
during his long residence in Ohio, he had the entire confidence and
respect of the community where he lived, as an industrious, honest
and intelligent citizen, and that he lived and died an earnest,
humble and sincere Christian. He leaves a widow and several
children, and a large number of relations and friends in Ohio and in
this county, to mourn his loss.
