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.

Jacob Cossairt Visit

These pictures are taken at the cemetery in Bloomfield, MO in early August of 2005. We accidentally found Jacob Cossairt's family grave plot while looking at the Stoddard County Confederate Veterans monument. Dad knew he was there, but had forgotten. For the rest of us, it was a real treat! We were also in this end of the cemetery because my Grandpa Harty was born nearby this end of the cemetery. Unfortunately, the house is since no longer to be found in the area. Must have been torn down...too bad.

Jacob Cossairt is the grandfather of Cora Elsie Carnall who married Ruben F. Harty II on 2 Apr 1905. He is my 3rd great grandfather, and was Captain of the Co. I of the 8th Missouri Cavalry State Militia, US during the War Between the States. I find it very humorous that he is buried half a stones throw from the Stoddard County Confederate Monument!

The Stoddard County Confederate Monument in Bloomfield, MO

Here I am enjoying a moment reflecting on those that gave their lives in defense of Missouri and Stoddard County during the War Between the States.

Here is a picture of my 3rd Great Grandfather, Captain Jacob Cossairt, Co. I, 8th Missouri State Militia, US.

I had not forgotten where Jacob Cossairt was buried. But I did forget that the Cossairt family was buried across the road from Alfred Jack Carnall and his wife Mary Alice Cossairt, the daughter of Jacob Cossairt and his his wife Hettie Alcorn. I was also not aware that the Confederate Memorial Cemetery was so close to Jacob as I had never seen the memorial in person.
