Margaret Ann Stanton Hart
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 29, 1819
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 30, 1887
Winneshiek County
Iowa, USA

Born in New York, Maragaret A. Stanton married firehose maker and volunteer fireman Elijah Hart. They had five children: Mary, Martha, Isaac, William and John.

Elijah moved his family to Chicago about 1850, where he became a member of the city's first professional fire department.

Her son Isaac Leggett Hart founded several newspapers in Iowa and Minnesota, most notably, the Pipestone County Star in Pipestone, Minnesota.

Martha married English-born printer and newspaper publisher Robert V. Shurley.

William M. Hart worked as a shipping clerk in Chicago. We don't know what became of Mary or John.

Margaret Hart's husband, Elijah, died at the home of his son Isaac in 1907.

While Margaret Hart is listed in the records of Rosehill Cemetery and Mausoleum, Chicago, and has a marker in the Hart plot there, she is also listed in the interment records of Linwood Cemetery, Dubuque, Iowa, as being buried with her grandson Louis Burgh Shurley. Her obituary in the Chicago Inter Ocean (1 Feb 1887) says that interment was to be in Dubuque.

The reason is unclear and the confusion unresolvable; perhaps she died in Dubuque while visiting her daughter Martha, and was later moved to Rosehill. The Shurleys lived in Dubuque, where for a number of years he published a newspaper.
