The Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal of Thursday evening, Nov. 7, contained the following notice of the death of a former Guilford resident:
"Hiram Hart, 79, died Nov. 2 at his home in Richfield, Summit county, Ohio. He was born in Guilford, Vt., Nov. 4, 1833, and at the age of 21 married Miss Jeannette Stearns of Athol, Mass., coming to Akron a short time afterwards. He lived in the city but a little while, when he moved to his farm in Richfield, where he lived the balance of his life. His first wife died in 1865 and two years later he married Miss Arletta Clark of Tinsburg, O.
"Mr. Hart was very widely known in this county and his fund of valuable information and judgement were much sought after and respected. Although never seeking public office, he served several terms as county commissioner and on school and charity boards. During the Civil war he traveled very extensively through the middle West purchasing supplies and horses for the United States quartermaster's department. More of a stockman and trader than a farmer, his fam gave temporary shelter to thousands of sheep, cattle and horses.
In recent years with one or more of his children he spent the winter months fishing on the Gulf coast of Florida or in camping trips in the Yellowstone national park in Washington or in California.
"He is survived by six children. The burial was in Richfield beside his two wives and four children."
