Signer John Hart

Revolutionary War Image

John ‘Honest John‘ Hart (circa 1713–May 11, 1779), was a New Jersey signer of the United States Declaration of Independence. Shortly thereafter, in December of 1776, British forces arrived at Pennington, New Jersey and raided Hart’s home in Hopewell, in the process damaging his farm. The elderly John Hart escaped and hid in the Sourland Mountains during the depth of winter. His two minor children managed to escape to nearby family members.
