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.
