The following is taken from an email Tom Hart Jr. sent to me on Friday, April 22, 2005:
"My impression is that the Harts of Decatur were very private folks and tended to keep family secrets rather than volunteering information.From the little that [Thomas Hart] talked about the family, I don’t think it was much fun growing up in it. I got the impression that... (Henry) was a quiet, easy going guy who didn’t have good financial discipline and... (Maude) was very strict.[Thomas Hart] said his dad [Henry] was a farmer but they lived in town (not sure how that worked, or even if they owned the farm or not)."
