Biography of James H Hart

Contributor: crex Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

HON. JAMES H. HART. History does not always make just and adequate return to the souls which have helped to create it. It is often arbitrary, whimsical and partial, celebrating as heroes mere opportunists and letting the pioneers, the real crusaders, go by unclaimed, unhonored. It is the province of this compilation to leave the speculations of historical disquisitions and to preserve the biographical features of the life careers of those who have, by their able endeavors and progressive connection with the development of any line, civil, professional or industrial, of the advancement of the com- munity of their residence, rendered themselves prominent, active, or "beneficial. Most in- timately connected -with the history of Bear Lake county, Idaho, has been the gentleman whom we now have under consideration, Hon. James H. Hart, of Bloomington, who has most capably held the highly important office of probate judge of Bear Lake county, in which he rendered most satisfactory service by his erudition, dignity, courtesy and marked spirit of equity. Judge James H. Hart was born in Abing- ford, Huntingtonshire, England, on June 29, 1825, a son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Mar- riott) Hart, descending from ancestors whose lineage runs back unbroken through many generations of active usefulness in his native land, his paternal grandfather, John Hart, be- ing a native of the same county with himself and where his father was also born. Thomas Hart was the third in a family of eight chil- dren and engaged in the vocation of a builder for his life work, and, after performing most creditable labors in his chosen profession, and after attending with faithfulness to his duties 206 PROGRESSIVE MEN OF BANNOCK, BEAR LAKE, as parish clerk and sexton for over half a century, his remains now repose in the old- time cemetery at Abingford, side by side with the mother of Judge Hart, who long ago passed to the Great Beyond. In this religious atmosphere Judge Hart attained maturity, acquiring the elements of a solid literary education in the parish schools and supplementing this instruction in the full course of stenography, following this as a profession for some time. A man beyond the ordinary in reasoning powers and mental en- dowment, James Hart was early convinced of the truthfulness of the religious doctrines of the Church of Latter Day Saints, and be- came a member of that body when he was twenty-two years old, later being called by the church to fill important missions in Lon- don! Birmingham, the Island of Jersey, Ger- many and in several departments of the church established in France, notable among them being St. Malo, Paris and Havre, his efforts receiving attention and securing large additions to the members of the faithful. From France he was transferred to St. Louis, Mo., in 1857, in which city he was prominent in church activities and most capably per- formed the onerous duties of managing editor of the newspaper publication entitled St. Louis Luminary, in addition to these duties diligently working at carpentry. From St. Louis in 1857 he was placed in charge of an ox train of Mormon emigrants en route for Salt Lake City, and brought them safely through to their destination, arriving there on October 9th of the same year. Remaining in Salt Lake City and vicinity, engaged in various occupations until 1864. Judge Hart then made his home in the new town of Bloomington, Idaho, where he be- came a worker in wood, being a carpenter and also making all the doors and tables of the place. He was also commissioned as the first postmaster of Bloomington, holding the position for seven years, was chosen and served as a popular justice of the peace, and in 1870 he was nominated and elected judge of probate of the county, discharging the im- portant functions of the office with great ac- ceptability for the term of four years and thereafter representing the people of his dis- trict in the lower house of the state Legis- lature for six consecutive years, and later, in 1900, being nominated again, as the candi- date of the Democratic party, for his former judicial office, judge of probate, and receiv- ing a flattering endorsement and election at the polls. This term of office expired on January 10, 1903. For the past twenty years Judge Hart has practiced the legal profession at Paris, and occupies a leading and promi- nent position among the members of the bench and bar, having many friends and being noted for his constancy to his clients, his comprehensive grasp and presentation of the merits of his cases before the courts, and the affable courtesy of his manner. Always deeply devoted to the interests of the Church of Latter Day Saints, Judge Hart has from the first held official position therein, rendering also distinguished service for a long term of years as one of the stake presi- dency, being in this connection the superintend- ent and manager in the construction of the Fielding Academy of Paris. Miss Emily Ellingham, a native of Hert- fordshire, England, and Judge Hart were united in matrimony in the city of London in 1852. She was the daughter of Thomas and Ann Ellingham, and of this union there is but one surviving child, James Ellingham Hart, now serving in his second term of four years as auditor and recorder of Bear Lake county. By his second wife, Sabina Schieb, to whom he was united in 1862, he had nine children, of whom seven are now living. The oldest. BINGHAM, FREMONT AND ONEIDA COUNTIES, IDAHO. 207 Charles H., is serving his second term as judge of the First judicial district of Utah. The others are Alice C, who married Anson Osmond, has seven children and lives in Bloomington; Eugene S., a popular teacher of Fremont county; Arthur \V., an attorney at Preston, Idaho. Both of the last named have performed missionary service, the first in Missouri, the latter in Germany. Alfred A., of Bloomington, a graduate of the Agri- cultural College of Utah, has recently per- formed a mission of two years in Wisconsin ; Hermoine, a graduate of the Agricultural Col- lege of Utah, is a teacher at St. Charles; Rosina, now Mrs. Ivan Woodward, of Frank- lin, Idaho; the family includes also one adopted son, Henry J. Hart, a carpenter, of Montpelier, Idaho. To sum up, there is no one individual throughout the whole extent of southern Idaho who has more completely lived up to the high standing of his ideals than has Judge Hart, and it stands in evidence, without an attempt at contradiction, that no man has filled important functions with greater fidelity, or ever discharged his duties as a citizen or church member with a clearer perception of their requirements or with a nobler result. from Progressive Men of Oneida County, Idaho 1904 see source attached to James H Hart
