DAVID VAN HART

DAVID VAN HART. Among the descendants of the old settlers of Bucks county must be numbered David Van Hart. The great-grandfather of Mr. Van Hart was a native of Holland , who settled in Falls township prior to the revolution. His son, Jacob Van Hart, was a farmer and shoemaker, and married Mary, daughter of Daniel Richardson, a pioneer, who lived near Dolington. Their family consisted of fifteen children.

            Charles Van Hart, son of Jacob and Mary ( Richardson ) Van Hart, mentioned above, was born October 9, 1821 , in Newtown township, and later settled in Upper Makefield township, where he engaged in farming. Politically he is a Democrat. He married Eliza Tomlinson, and they were the parents of seven children, six of whom are living: Jacob, lives in Upper Makefield ; Mary, married Edward Lake , of Philadelphia ; Eliza, wife of Winfield Pool, of Wycombe; David, mentioned at length hereinafter; John, lives in Lower Makefield township; and Catherine, a widow, and resides in Yardleyville. After the death of his wife, Mr. Van Hart married Jane Jackson.

            David Van Hart, son of Charles and Eliza (Tomlinson) Van Hart, was born August 15, 1846 , in Bucks county, and was educated in the common schools. At the age of nineteen he began to work for the farmers, and after some years entered the service of a farmer near Taylorsville , by whom he was employed by the year for four years. He then rented the "Edward Merrick farm," which he cultivated for five years, and moved thence to the Harvey farm, where he spent two years. His next removal was to Bronwsburg, where for five years he cultivated the Boileau farm, and then spent one year on the Wagner farm. After living for three years on the Horn farm, he took up his abode in 1889 on the Wynkoop farm, where he has since resided. For nine years he has served on the school board, and for ten years has held the office of tax collector of the township. His political principles are those of the Republican party. He is a member of the Thompson Memorial Presbyterian church, in which for the last twenty-one years he has held the office of trustee. Mr. Van Hart married, in September, 1869, Frances Jackson, of Solebury township, and they have three children: Eugene, a resident of Brooklyn , New York ; Charles, a farmer in Upper Makefield township; and Abner, lives in Norristown , Pennsylvania .
