Amy (Hart) Joy (b. 1741) of Dartmouth, MA and her son Simpson Hart of New Bedford, MA (d. 1823)

 

 

My mother’s ancestor Amy Hart was born in 1741 in Dartmouth, Mass., the daughter of William Hart (b 1710) and Mary (Shepherd) Hart (ca. 1719-1809). She had an interesting life, which included the birth of a son, Simpson Hart, upon which she was disowned by members of the Society of Friends (Quakers). She had distinguished progeny.

Posted below as a downloadable Word file is an article about Amy Hart and her son, Simpson Hart of New Bedford, MA.
