Research Notes:

The excerpt below is quoted directly from a history of the Hartman Cabin in Clermont County, prepared for the Clermont County Park District. [14]

"The property was recently owned by John Kilby Hartman, who was their grandson. Christopher and Mary Hartman's second son, Isaac, married Mary Daughters in 1807. They had eleven children. John Kilby was born December 11, 1809 in Jackson Township, the second oldest of their children. When he was 27, he married Elizabeth Abernathy, born March 7, 1913. Their wedding was held in nearby Brown County. John K. and Elizabeth settled on John's 117½ acres in Jackson Township, recorded on the 1840 census as residing in Jackson Township in a cluster of other Hartman's, most of whom resided in Survey No. 4780 or in adjacent Surveys. From census and property tax information it is apparent that the couple lived on the property from close to the date of their marriage. John Kilby (or Kilby as he was known to his relatives) and Elizabeth Hartman had one daughter, Julia, born in 1839. Elizabeth Hartman died on April 4, 1851 at the age of 48. She was buried in the Hartman cemetery, adjacent to their property. John K. Hartman married for a second time in 1859. Mary E. Brown had been born April 30, 1827, and was 32 years old when they married, while John Kilby was 50. His daughter Julia and Thomas White had been married the year before. John K and Mary had no children, according to history records. Secondary evidence suggests that he lived at the log house, at least in later years. In 1881, John K. Hartman was nearing 72 years of age, and his wife Mary was 54. On April 12 of that year, he transferred 50 acres in #4780 to his nephew Cary Hartman. On the same day, Cary Hartman transferred the same property to Mary Hartman, John's wife. Several reasons have been advanced to explain this action. Perhaps they were trying to avoid gift or other taxes, or if he had been ill they may have sought to avoid the inheritance taxes. Mary wrote the will mentioned above in 1888. In it she left the property and her personal possessions ultimately to her four sisters. Included in the will, however, was the proviso that if John K. outlived her, he would get the property and possessions for the remainder of his lifetime. He did indeed outlive her, as Mary died on September 3, 1892. John remained in the house until his death on July 22, 1900. He died intestate and Julia took possession of his property that same year. After the inventory of his personal possessions, she transferred the house and personal property listed in Mary's will to Virginia Brown and Mary's other sisters in 1900. Mary's four sisters held the property for several years and in 1907, they sold the 50 acres to a woman named Annie Maxwell."
