William Hart

 (1823 - 1894)
William Hart was active/lived in New York / United Kingdom, Scotland.  William Hart is known for landscape, cattle, genre, and coastal painting (Hudson River).

William Hart

Note from Letitia Hart, descendant of the artist:

James and Marion Hart and seven of their children, including James M. Hart age 1 yr., 9 mos., and William Hart age 6 yrs., 10 mos., came from Scotland to New York on the ship, Camillus.  They landed on February 12, 1830. This information comes from a hand written record at the National Archives.  The year of arrival is illegible because of the poor handwriting of the clerk at the dock. The manifest lists the parents and seven children and their ages.  Based upon the known birthdates of the family and the ages listed on the manifest, my arithmetic calculates that the ship arrived in 1830.
