1816-1874

Born New York moved to El Paso 1861, founded Hart's Mill that ground out 100 barrels flour a day and sold to buyers from Arizona to San Antonio. When the Civil War came he was the main source for securing military supplies for the Arizona-New Mexico campaign. In 1962 Hart joined the C.S.A. army and was made chief purchasing agent for the War Department west of the Mississippi. His extensive contacts in Mexico and Europe and his knowledge of markets made him able to render great service to the Confederacy which could only exist by trading valuable cotton for war goods through foreign countries. Through his arrangements for supplies, a Union plot to invade Texas across the Rio Grande was thwarted early 1863. Buried in Evergreen Cemetery.
