General Notes: Husband - Gedney Davis Hart
Gedney Davis Hart (John Jay Elijah Gedney Hart, John Hart, Monmouth, Joseph, Monmouth, Hannah Budd, John Budd (Jr.), John Budd (Sr.)) was born Nebraska City, Otoe Co. NE 24 Dec 1868. Gedney died 8 Aug 1956 Camp Ground Cem.Winthrop, AR, at 87 years of age. He married Minnie Daisy Eoff Fairfield, Benton Co. MO, 30 Sep 1897. Minnie was born St. Louis Co., MO 21 Nov 1879. Minnie was the daughter of John Turner Eoff and Anna Maria Thomas. Minnie died 1 Jun 1971 Riverside Cemetary, Warsaw, MO, at 91 years of age. According to her obituary Minnie was born in St. Louis Co. but other notes found at Edith Bresee's home showed St. Charles Co. There is an LDS ancestry chart showing Wentzville as birthplace which is St. Charles Co. MO. Minnie died in the Fairview Nursing Home in Sedalia, MO but was brought back to Warsaw for burial. She was raised in Fairfield, MO but moved to Warsaw after marrying Gedney. According to her obit "She loved nature in its fullest , enjoyed going fishing and being in the great outdoors. She was also a lover of good music and spent many hours playing the piano..even during her later years." Marriage data supported by certified copy of Benton Co. marriage license. Minnie was only 17 when married so her father John T.Eoff had to give his written assent to the marriage. Gedney was a Postmaster at Warsaw for several years. When he left Minnie Eoff in 1922-23 he moved to Winthrop, Ark. where his siblings and parents were. Gedney and Minnie were later divorced. According to his obituary (De Queen, Ark.) he was a resident of Little River County for a number of years. It also stated he died in a Texarkana hospital. Gedney was well read and loved books. Gedney is listed as age 2 in the Richardson Co. NE 1870 census pg 114. According to Edith Bresee, one of Gedney's daughters Gedney left Minnie and the younger children about 1923 and moved to AR. ------------------ According to the published Little River County, AR cemetery book, Campground Cemetery is "approximately 1 miles west of Winthrop". p. 55 John J. Hart 1841 - 1925 , Alvidra V. Hart 1844 - 1934 and Gidney D. Hart, 1868 - 1956. You can order copies of these folks death certificates from the Arkansas Hea lth Department in Little Rock, 501-661-2336. _____________________ certified copies of death certificates from Arkansas for Alverda and her son Gedney. Here is a recap (using spelling as the certificate has it): Gedney D. Hart, Place of death- Miller Co. Texarkana, St. Michael's Hospital. Usual Residence: Arkansas, Little River Co. Winthrop, Street Address-General Delivery. Date of death- August 9, 1956, age 87 y 7 m 15 d days. Married block says "Widowed". Father's name- John J. Hart. Mother's maiden name-Unk.

Buried Camp Ground Cemetery , Winthrop, Arkansas. Funeral Director- Fred Wilkerson, DeQueen, Ark . Informant- Mon Hart, Lockesburg, Arkansas. 1) Gedney shows widowed yet his ex-wife Minnie was still alive. Possibly he remarried and was widowed or could be an error. 2) his death Aug 9 3) Alverda's mother's name given as Virginia Kinnison- her obit says mother's name was Mary. 4) Interesting that Gedney did not complete Alverda's father's name Davis, since this was Gedney's middle name. 5) Alverda's birthplace shows Wheeling, V A but obit has Wheeling, WV (She always showed VA in census records- may be that was considered VA when she was born.)

General Notes: Child - John Lowell Hart
John Lowell Hart was born Warsaw, Mo 4 July, 1898. John died Aug 1981 Spencer, IA, at 83 years of age. He married Marie McKinstry 3 Mar 1925. John took the civil service exam in his junior year, received an appointment and stayed out of school for a year delivering mail ( His father was Postmaster) . He then graduated from Warsaw H.S. the same year (1920) with sisters Edith and Anna. John signed a professional baseball contract as a player and playing manager for 9 years. He quit baseball 1928 to start the H & N Chevrolet business operating the dealership for 10 years in Spencer, IA (added Ford, Lincoln, Mercury franchise). His brother Frank joined him in the business. In 1949 he was able to get Babe Ruth (a baseball acquaintance) to come to Spencer, IA spending a week with them-Babe Ruth died eighteen weeks later. A Babe Ruth autographed baseball is now held (Oct 1999) by John David Laird grandson of John Laird and Bernice Hart (John Lowell Hart's sister). John Hart continued "playing" in baseball by organizing an all salaried team made up of college players. At the end of the season there was a John Hart Day and the Spencer citizens presented him with an oil painting of him and Babe Ruth. John had other business ventures including golf courses and residential/commercial developer . In retirement he enjoyed golf, hunting. attending ballgames, etc. spending part of their winter in the South and enjoying their English Setters, Rebel and Lefty.
General Notes: Child - Edith Fay Hart
Patricia Bresee Gilbert remembers; Edith worked in the post office right after her 1920 high school graduation. Her father Gedney Hart was the Postmaster. Edith delayed graduating a year or two because she stayed home and helped raise the younger children. She later taught in country schools including Fredonia and Elder Ridge near Sweet Springs, MO. July 1943 she assumed the duties of Cashier for United Telephone Co.and continued there until retirement January 1, 1965. Loyd and Edith were past Patron and Matron of Osage Valley Chapter 502 Order of Eastern Star (1950-51). Edith had auburn hair and some of her sisters were red headed as well.. She was a spunky, intelligent and a bit assertive woman who almost lived to be age 100. Edith loved to garden , play cards (especially Canasta) and to go fishing. My memories of " Grandma" include what a fantastic cook she was, especially baking-I was never able to master her delicious biscuits and fruit cobbler. She was always talkative and said what she thought. (Perhaps that was one reason that Grandpa was always so quiet.) When I last saw Grandma (in her younger 90's) she was still quite spunky and quite a sharp mind. I remember the sparkle in her eyes when we visited the Truman Dam where she delighted in seeing hundreds of Gar fish playing in the water. Edith liked keeping up with the family members and always had family pictures all over her dining and living room furniture.She could tell you all their names and what they had been doing. When she died 1999, her daughter Ruth Ann ( my Mom) found many handwritten notes of family names/dates and her scrapbook(s) which formed the basis of much of my Bresee, Hart and Eoff family tree documentation. Mom and I believe Grandma would be pleased that we both now are carrying on her love for documenting and remembering the "family" through our genealogy hobby.
General Notes: Child - Anna Mabel Hart
Anna Mabel Hart was born Warsaw, Benton Co. MO 17 Jun 1901. Anna died 2 Aug 1989 in Kansas City, KS, at 88 years of age. She married Ervin E. Malott 20 Aug 1923. After graduating from Warsaw H.S. in 1920 Anna taught school in Lincoln, Warrensburg and Henstonia MO. She also coached the girl's basketball team. After marrying, she and Ervin lived in Greater Kansas City. In 1940 they built a home in Johnson Co. KS and a summer place at Grand View Beach near Warsaw. They had no children of their own so they adopted a 5 week old baby Ervin Eugene Malott who was an owner-editor of a newspaper in CA as of 1970.
General Notes: Child - Bernice Alverda Hart
Bernice Alverda Hart was born 20 Sept 1903. She married John Major Laird (Sr) 17 Jun 1932. Patricia BreseeGilbert remembers Aunt Bernice had red hair (auburn or red hair must have run in the family). Uncle John owned the Warsaw Barber Shop. They loved to garden and their backyard was a floral masterpiece. I understand Bernice used to sell tomatoes off her back porch for 10 cents a pound. Cousin David Laird (their grandson) said her sales were especially good on Sundays after the services let out from the Catholic Church across from their house.

General Notes: Husband - Edward Hart Sands
After his mother's death, his grandmother, Catharine (Van Alstyne) Harrison, apparently, took charge of Hart's children. After her husband died in 1838, she moved, with the children to Herkimer County, to be close to her daughter, Harriet (Harrison) Watson. According to the 1840 census she was there with three of Hart's five children, in German Flats, Herkimer Co., living almost right next to Uri C. Watson and his wife, Harriet (Harrison) Watson. This explains how Edward met and married his first wife, Abigail Isham, who was from Herkimer County. He was first listed as a druggist and physician in the 1845/46 Manahattan directory with office at 128 Ave. 3. A couple of years later he added the office at 71 James St. He lived at 38 Oak St. In 1851 he moved to 96 Madison Ave. By the late 1857 he was no longer in Manhattan. By 1864 he was a Surgeon living in Brooklyn. The 1868 Brooklyn directory lists his address as S. 6th n. 5th.
General Notes: Child - Lavinia Catherine Sands
In 1888 she was a widow living at 347 Cumberland St., Brooklyn, NY. In the 1930 census she is listed as a patient in the Bronx.
General Notes: Child - Margarette Sands
According to NY Times articles of 11/17 and 24/1906, Margaret hired attorneys to try to get her cousin, Valeria Sands, released from the Sanford Hill Asylum. A fight broke out in court between her and her sister "Mattie Robinson". According to the Washington Post on November 19 , 1910, Mrs. Mary E. Robertson, a cousin of Valeria's, brought a habeas corpus proceeding, for Valeria's release in Brooklyn Supreme Court . Thus, I conclude that the "Mattie Robinson" referred to by the Times is Margaret's sister, Mary. As a Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Robertson attended the wedding of their sister Anna Sands, according to the Brooklyn Eagle on April 28, 1895, I am assuming that Mary's husband was surnamed Robertson and not Robinson, as suggested by the Times.
