Hart, A. O., was born in the town of Dryden, July14,1832; he gained his early education in the district school. His father, William M., was a native of that town, born in 1802, and lived to the age of eighty years. Throughout his life Mr. Hart paid special attention to milling and in his later years carried on a flour and feed store in Ithaca. Our subject, A. O. Hart, married December 27, 1853, Mary, daughter of Isaac Bishop, who died August 3, 1891, leaving no children, since which he has devoted himself more closely than ever to business, buying and shipping large quantities of live stock, and handling most of the crop of wool produced in his neighborhood. In spite of his active business life Mr. Hart finds time to take an interest in the events of the day, both educational and political, being a Republican in politics. Mr. Hart has served as excise commissioner and is now one of the town committee.
