(Baxter would love to hear from anyone, especially descendants of the Hartman family, who might be able to add to the biographical material that we have on John W. Hartman and the Hartman family. Baxter would also enjoy see copies of any photographs of John W. Hartman that may have survived the years, especially any showing him in uniform from his days in the service, added to his Find A Grave site for all to see.)
