Selected Families and Individuals

Notes


George Henry Hart

Information sent to T.Mason on 26 Nov 2007 by Denise Jensen. "George Hart died in February 1962 and his obituary in the Rock Hill Herald is dated 21 Feb 1962. His obituary lists his parents and his sons, where they were living, and a few of his surviving siblings. The will of George H. Hart identifies his sons, and granddaughter, Mary Cartwright Hart, obviously named after her Grandmother Mary as heirs of his estate."


Margaret Estelle Cartwright

Information sent to T.Mason on 26 Nov 2007 by Denise Jensen. "We know she attended Winthrop College from a Yorkville Enquirer ‘About People’ tidbit on 3 Dec 1918, “Misses Louise and Pauline Oates, Beulah Ferguson and Margaret Cartwright and Sarah Jones had spent the weekend at home”. Margaret married Hassell Hutchinson Dick on 14 June 1927. Hassell was 39; she was 26, as listed on their Marriage License. Hassell Hutchinson Dick is the son of George W. and Carrie H. Dick of Sumter, SC. A completed family group sheet, with the 1900 and 1910 census for Hassell’s family is included. Hassell H. Dick attended the US Naval Academy for 3 ½ years and was working for the American Consul in Switzerland, at the time WWI started; this is from his Draft Registration Card. The 1930 census taken at the American Consul in Port Elizabeth, South Africa; is interesting to note that Mr. Dick did the enumeration of himself and his wife. After the 1930 census, you can trace Hassel and Margaret through passenger records. Here are some of those available online:
10 Jun 1929 Margaret returning from Port Said, Egypt.
22 Oct 1938 Margaret returning from La Havre, France
21 June 1940 Margaret returning from Le Verdon, France
27 July 1948 Margaret returning from Dakar, Senegal
1 Sept 1953 Margaret returning from Cherbourg, France
Traveling with her are James, Sarah and Lana Dick. These appear to be Hassell and Margaret’s children; until being told by Scott Hollis, who had known Mrs. Dick before her death, that they had no children. My only guess was that they were possibly nieces and a nephew traveling back from some adventure she had taken them on.
The Rock Hill Herald on 6 Aug 1949 mentioned that Mr. and Mrs. Dick had just returned from Africa and had arrived Friday by plane from Dakar, Africa. They had returned for the passing of her sister Mrs. Geo. H. Hart. Hassell and Margaret finally retired and settled back in York. On 5 Nov 1972, Hassell H. Dick passed away; The Rock Hill Herald ran his obituary on 6 Nov 1972. Margaret passed away on 2 Jan 1999, as noted from her SSDI. The notice of her death appeared in the Rock Hill Herald on 3 Jan 1999 and her obituary ran on 4 Jan 1999. Hassell’s will at the Probate office, left everything to Margaret and she was named his Executrix. She left everything she had to nephews: George C. Adickes, Sr., George H. Hart Jr., Adam C. Hart Sr., Thomas L. Cartwright, Perry P. Cartwright, and Thomas C. Cartwright Sr."


Adam Yeiser Cartwright Jr

Information sent to T.Mason on 26 Nov 2007 by Denise Jensen. "While looking for other family marriage certificates a marriage license for Adam to Agnes Depass from Camden, SC dated 16 Jun 1927, was discovered. The marriage did not take place because the Marriage Certificate is not completed. Much later in the Rock Hill Herald on 4 Aug 1948, A.Y. Cartwright Jr. is featured in several election advertisements. On 10-11 Aug 1948 the Rock Hill Herald announced all the winning candidates, A.Y. Cartwright Jr. was elected to the State House of Representatives. On 27 Apr 1953, A.Y. Cartwright Jr.’s funeral services were announced In the Rock Hill Herald. The services were to take place that day at 4 p.m. “Mr. Cartwright died Saturday afternoon at Divine Savior Hospital, York. He had been in a critical condition for several days.” His will was very simple and joint with his wife Lillian Montgomery Cartwright. She later re-married and became Mrs. Peterson. Adam and Lillian had no children."
