“History of Huntington County, Indiana”1914 By Frank S. Bash pg. 780-81

Noah Hart. An able representative of the prosperous farmers of Huntington county as well as an honored and respected citizen of Jefferson township, has contributed his full share toward the development and growing prosperity of the community in which he lives. A native of Indiana, he was born, December 8, 1849, in Wayne county.

His father, Daniel Hart, was born and brought up in Pennsylvania, and removed with his parents to Wayne county, Indiana. Migrating with his family to Huntington county, Indiana, from Wayne county, in 1851, he bought land in Jefferson township, and from its primitive wildness cleared the farm now owned and occupied by his son Noah, and was there in agricultural pursuits throughout his remaining years. He married Mary A. Shideler, who was born in Ohio and also removed with her parents to Wayne county, Indiana. There their marriage took place, and to them four children were born, as follows: Samuel, of Lancaster township; Isaiah, of Jefferson township; Daniel, deceased; and Noah.

Two years old when he came with the family to Jefferson township, Noah Hart grew to manhood amid pioneer scenes, and as a boy attended the pioneer schools of the district during the long winter terms, but in the summer season assisted his father on the farm, becoming fully as familiar with the science of agriculture as with his books. Following in the footsteps of his ancestors, Mr. Hart selected farming as his chosen occupation, and having met with unquestioned success in his undertakings is now the owner of one hundred and sixty acres of rich and fertile land on section 2, Jefferson township, it being situated one-half mile south, and one and one-half miles east, of Lancaster.

Mr. Hart married, March 16, 1878, Emma Redding, who died in 1901, leaving one daughter, Etta, who was born May 30, 1881. She is now the wife of Ira L. Drubenstot, and has two children, Veva V. and Dosey E. Politically Mr. Hart is a prohibitionist, and religiously he is a member of the Wesleyan Methodist church at Lancaster.
