Abram V. Hart was born in Londen County, Va., Feb. 10th, 1816. He went to Morgan County, Ohio, in the winter of 1840 and married Mary Beal, Nov. 24th, 1845. He came to Post township in the fall of 1854, where he has resided ever since. He died April 30th, 1900, leaving a wife, two children, John B. and Mrs. Lydia A. Towns, and seven grandchildren to mourn his death.

This is the short record of the deceased which we have at hand. We have known him quite intimately for a quarter of a century and have known him as a kind, accommodating and honest man. He worked hard all his life until the weight of years compelled him to rest from his labors, and gathered together a comfortable fortune. He suffered a great deal for several months, bearing the pain with fortitude. The funeral was held from his late residence on Thursday afternoon, Revs. Pollard and Bockelman officiating. The further serveces were conducted by the Masonic fraternity, of which he has been a member for many years. Interment in the Postville cemetery. And thus we bid farewell to our neighbor and friend. May his sleep be peaceful and those who mourn be comforted by the hope of a reunion in the "sweet by-and-by."
