Jessie M Hart

Rev. Jesse M. Hart, a Missionary Baptist preacher and farmer of El Dorado, was born in Chambers County, Ala., June 22, 1838, and was the fifth in a family of eight children born to John and Eliza (Johns) Hart, both natives of South Carolina. In 1858 he came to Louisiana, settled on the Arkansas line, and in 1860 was licensed to preach. During the year 1861 he spent his time in Mount Lebnon University, Louisiana, being ordained on January 25 of the following year. For the next 10 years, he was preaching in both Louisiana and Arkansas, part of the charge being in both States. In 1871 he moved permanently to El Dorado, where he was pastor of the Baptist Church until December, 1885, preaching for the church one-half of his time and spending the alternate Sunday with churches in the surrounding country. When he came to El Dorado he purchased a good farm of 160 acres one mile west of town, and sixty acres of this are under cultivation. In 1885 he removed to Morrillton, Conway County, Ark., where he had charge of the Baptist Church for three years. After this he preached at Russellville, Ark., one-half of the time for one year and spent the alternate weeks traveling and preaching both for pleasure and partly in the interest of Ouachita College at Arkadelphia. In November, 1885, he was appointed by the State convention one of fifteen trustees to locate a site and arrange for the founding of a college for the Baptist denomination, and at the meeting of the board of trustees he was elected president, to which position he has been elected annually ever since. In November, 1889, he returned to his old home in El Dorado, and now has his charge at Hillsboro and Blanchard Springs, and once a month goes to Summerfield, La. Mr. Hunt was married on March 9, 1863, to Miss Margaret M. Clements, a native of Mississippi, and who died in the former State in 1863. Mrs. Clements died in 1842. To Mr. and Mrs. Hart were born three children, all living: John Marion (at Weatherford, Tex.), Ida W. (wife of W. A. Freear, a merchant of Jackson, Tenn.), and Thomas C. (at home on the farm). In 1878 and 1879 Mr. Hart was president of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention in Monticello and Hope, and in the fall of 1889, at the organization of the Baptist State Sunday-school Convention at Little Rock, and he was elected president. In 1888 he was invited to deliver the sermon on education at the commencement of the Mount Lebanon University in Louisiana, and at that time, by the recommendation of the faculty, the board conferred the degree of D.D. upon him.

Thomas C Hart

DR. THOMAS CLEMENS HART is a native of Arkansas. He was born June 5, 1867, in El Dorado, a town located in the Southern part of the State. Thomas Clemens Hart was the third and youngest child of this marriage, the eldest being John M., a merchant prominent in Weatherford for the past thirty-six years; and the second being Ida, now the wife of W. A. Freear, a well-known business man of Weatherford. Doctor Hart attended the Southwestern Baptist University of Jackson, Tennessee, then entered the medical department of the University of Louisville. He finished his medical training in the medical department of the Arkansas Industrial University, graduating and receiving his M. D. degree m 1891. He has never ceased being a student, however, and has taken post graduate work at the Graduate College of Medicine in Chicago. His active practice began in El Dorado, Arkansas, where he was located from 1891 to 1898. Then he came to Texas, locating at Brock, Parker County, where he continued in active practice until 1912, when he located at Carrollton, Dallas County. Here he remained until 1917, when he became identified with the health department of the City of Dallas. During the years 1918 and 1919 he served as house physician for the Cotton Belt Hospital at Texarkana,
Texas, returning then to the Dallas Health Department. Doctor Hart remained with the Dallas Health Department until September, 1924, when he located in Odessa, practicing there his profession very actively down to the present date. Besides his general practice, since coming to Odessa, he has served as health officer for Ector, Crane and Upton counties, being for awhile the only doctor in this particular section. During the short space of three years this physician has lived through a remarkable period of development. Besides serving as county health officer, he has acted as surgeon for the Texas and Pacific Railroad. He is a member of the Tri-Counties' Medical Society, the State Medical Society, and the American Medical Association. Doctor Hart was married November 10, 1891, at Pine Bluff, Arkansas, to Madeline Witherington, a native of that State. Five children have been born to them: Ida, now the wife of Thomas Williams, of Dallas; Roscoe, now a business man of Brooklyn, New York, who is a veteran of the Great War; Thomas, Jr., of Odessa, also a world war veteran; Hal, a business man of Dallas; and Emma Bell, now the wife of Ben Amos, of St. Louis, Missouri. By a former marriage, Mrs. Hart has another daughter, Mattie Mae, who is now the wife of Arthur Alverson, of Dallas, Texas. This physician with so many avenues of service is widely known and much loved because of his fine character. He is a member of the Baptist Church, and in politics he has always been a Democrat.
