Welcome to the Harty Family History Site!

This site is dedicated to researching the Harty Family in the United States of America. Drawing our lineage back to Hans Jacobsen Hartje, immigrating from Bern, Switzerland and arriving in America on April 16, 1663 in New Amsterdam (modern day New York City), our line has been based out of Southeast Missouri since the late 1790's. The primary aim of this site is to gather the family together from across the Nation and even the entire world, as we seek to number our family and take pleasure in the diversity of each individual in the Harty Family.

The Harty Sign In Puxico, MO

This was from our trip in early August 2005 down to Southeast Missouri to visit family sites. Only Dad, Lewis, his wife Mary and myself were able to go. My poor wife had to stay back at my brother Randolph's house with all 4 kids! She did have some help, but she had a lot on her hands wathcin' those kids...as well as being 8 months pregnant with kid #5!

At any rate, this sign is in Puxico, Missouri. There are a lot of Harty cousins from the town and some still live there. We thought this was a cool picture, so there we are!

Hah, I've seen those pictures several times and never thought of it as anything more than Harty street, but now that you mention it, it's really Nathaniel Harty street. Haha.

Sweetie...no, to my recollection, it came to a 'T' with the major county highway right at that corner. I'd figure that all the roads in that area were north, and the all the roads to the south side of say, Main Street in Puxico were labeled south
