On Friday afternoon at 12:30 Mrs. Adelina M. Hart passed away at the home of Mr. and Mrs. L. O. Upson on Central Avenue.

She was laid to rest at Pine Wood Cemetery in Daytona Beach, where she had been one of the pioneer residents when the beach had but five houses.

Mrs. Hart was born in Strasbourg, France, coming to the states when eight years of age and to Florida in 1884, and had she lived until September she would have been 83 years of age. She was married in Wisconsin to Martin V. Hart, a fife major in the Civil War, who was discharged with honors.

Mr. and Mrs. Hart and their four children were early settlers in Altoona, Lake County, Florida, which was at that time a part of Orange County, and here Mr. Hart served as postmaster for a number of years. After the death of her husband Mrs. Hart lived in New Smyrna and a year ago came to Flagler Beach to reside with her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Ida Upson with whom she remained until she passed away.

She is survived by four grandchildren, Edwin M. and Raymond Hart of Flagler Beach and Mrs. Adeline Bray of Lakeland, and Mrs. Laura Firtson of Bowling Green.
