MINERVA LUCY OGLINE (aka Lucy M. MOORE) born the out-of- wedlock dau of Josiah Joseph OGLINE & Elizabeth MOORE. She was therefore the granddaughter of William & Susanna STERN, Phillip & Elizabeth Emert-Ogline. MINERVA's birth came about as a result of her widowed mother Elizabeth MOORE craving for attention/affection roll-in-the-hay relationship with Josiah Joseph OGLINE three (3) years before Josiah would marry Elizabeth Moore's eldest dau Mary Ellen Moore (the child of deceasded Civil War Soldier Oliver MOORE in 1878).

In 1893 Minerva would have a roll-in-the-hay relationship of her own with Leonard Jessse Bell, a neighboring farmer's son which resulted in her giving birth to son Robert Washingtton BELL on Feb 22,1894. The record of birth is documented in Somerset County's Book of Births, Volumn 1, Page 9 which lists the child's father as Leonard Jesse Bell (who was the s/o Isaiah BELL) and the mother as Lucy M. OGLINE.

In 1894 at the age of 20 Minerva Ogline is courted by JOHN SAMUEL HARTMAN, a single man aged 33. On June 30, 1895 the couple weds as recorded in Somerset County's Book of Marriages, Volumn 8, Pg 114. The marriage license and application (#2693) lists Minerva's parents as Josiah Ogline & Elizabeth Moore. The ceremony was officiated by Justice of The Peace Josiah L. Berkey at the home of the Bride, and was recorded by County Clerk Jacob S. Miller. The age of the Bride was 21, the age of the Groom, John Samuel Hartman was 30. The Groom's parents are listed as Mr. & Mrs. Jacob Hartman.

In 1899 MINERVA began fell ill ailing for six (6) months dying of consumtion (TB) passing away Febrary 24, 1900.

The 1900 FED'L CENSUS dated June 1st lists:
MOORE, Elizabeth HoH FW, Age 60, Widow

Minerva's mother, Widow Elizabeth MOORE cared for her grandson WILLIAM BELL's needs up until the time she died some eight (8) months after Minerva on 11 Sept 1900.

Robert's aunt Annie & Uncle Phillip OGLINE thereafter loved and cared for Minerva's only child Robert BELL until his age of maturity. After Aunt Annie OGLINE died in 1942 Phillip Ogline's sister PEARL OGLINE (living with her neice Alice Gindesperger) became kind of Robert Washington BELL's surrogate mother.
