The Miami Union, Troy, Ohio -
March 4, 1909
Henry A. Hartman was born in York County, Pennsylvania, March 4, 1835; died February 20, 1909. He was married to Rebecca Sipe, April 2, 1855. To this union nine children were born. One daughter, Jennie, died when four years old. Those living are Daniel, Lewis, Benjamin, John and Willie, Sarah Widener, Emma Gebhart and Katie Foster, twenty grand-children and eight great-grandchildren.
Wherever he lived he sought the church and was ever trying to climb the world's great alter stairs that leads to God. He has been a member of the New Carlisle Christian church for thirty years, also of the I.O.O.F. Lodge for thirty-four years. Mr. Hartman was a splendid example of loyal friendship. He had no hypocrisy; no concealment of errors. When he made a mistake he frankly admitted it. His heart was in the right place. A most devoted father, a splendid neighbor and a faithful friend. Duty was his watchword, truth his guiding star. His word was as good as his bond. He was grateful to his devoted children who gathered around him and administered to his wants. They held his hands and took from death its awful sting. Such devotion on the part of children is seldom witnessed. The magic of such treatment makes all of us akin and the world better. The neighbors were ever willing to assist; their sympathies touched a chord that shall vibrate beyond the wants of time and the ravages of death. The angel of death kissed down his eyelids tis true, but cannot chain his immortal soul. We bury his imperfections with the clods that rest upon his bosom, but cherish a lively recollection of the good deeds sown in life's fitful field by our father, brother, friend.
