Hart Roots
Specifically for the Scotch-Irish Hart descendants of Ashe County and Wake County North Carolina, Boone County, Roane County, Nicholas County, Webster County, West Virginia. This particular branch of the Hart tree has found its roots in West Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina, but younger generations have ultimately spread all over the map. Some Hart in West Virginia have Native American blood, but do not have a historical tribal association, and many Hart have mixed blood, that is, ancestry of different races in addition to Native American.

There isn't sufficient time to elaborate on all of the Harts and connecting lines and it is the intent on this web site and linked pages to describe some of the direct ancestors - father, grandparents, great-grandparents etc. of Stephen Cherokee Hart 1810 / 1896, Kelly Hart 1844 / 1913 and Samuel Laszlo Hart 1877 / 1935 as well as information on some of the more colorful, HARTS and related individuals and families.

(1) Our Hart family heritage has its known roots in the early history of West Virginia back into the mid 1700s.

(2) Most researchers agree that there is Indian blood (Cherokee or Catawba) in the Hart line. James Hart (ABT. 1765 / 1824) married Catherine Sizemore which generated Cherokee blood in the Hart line.

(3) Our Hart ancestry seems to come from Ireland and Scotland and migrated to areas in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina.

(4) Few things historians and scholars can agree on, but majority of them agree that Nancy Hart (Confederate Spy) was born circa 1846, she grew up near the mouth of the Triplett Run Creek, Roane County in western Virginia and her parent is Stephen and Mary Hart of Roane County.

I have been researching my family tree and this tree is a done as a gift to my mother and the descendants of James Hart. It will be left as a legacy to my descendants The Hart Family of Ashe County North Carolina to West Virginia.

I can trace back to JAMES HART SR (ABT. 1730 / 1810) and Morgan Elizabeth. This line of the Hart Family is based around West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina. It involves many surnames such as Haley, Lucky, Sizemore, Plumley, Forga, Tyo, Ignatius, Mullens, Cool, Woods, for a few. It is said, though with little documentation, that there is a Cherokee descent. Our Hart ancestry seems to come from Ireland and Scotland and migrated to areas in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina.
