HART, Reuben Obituary

Reuben Hart was born in Lithgow, Dutchess county, N.Y., April 28, 1813 and died September 2, 1890, at Germany Hill, Tioga county, N.Y. Brother Hart was led to give himself to God at the age of seventeen. His was a cheerful, energetic religion, full of hope to himself and inspiration to others. His illness was brief -- a general giving way of vital forces, a few weeks of weariness, a sharp final conflict and the spirit ascended to God and rest. At the age of twenty-one (1834), Brother Hart was married to Anna Augusta McMullen, who survives him. They had five children, four of whom are living -- one son and three daughters -- all, like their parents, faithful members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. One son, the Rev. Cephas Hart, a local preacher, died in Kansas some years ago. [Northern Christian Advocate, (Syracuse, N.Y.), December 11, 1890]
