      Biography

      (gopher://gopher.wheaton.edu:70/00/Wheaton_Archives/BGC/Guides/Coll/137/3-histba.txt)

      Ira Everett Hartman was born September 6, 1867, on a farm near
      Polk City, Iowa, the fifth child of Joseph S. and Hannah Elizabeth
      (Russell) Hartman. In 1885, the Hartmans and four of their
      children moved from Iowa to the Dakota Territory, where they
      homesteaded near Tripp. The family soon returned to Iowa
      where Ira became a student and railway telegraph operator.

      On July 18, 1891, he married Minnie Elizabeth Kaster (1871-1954),
      daughter of Friedrich and Minnie (Hildebrand) Kaster,
      who were German immigrants. Throughout the decade, he worked
      as a carpenter, paper hanger, and painter to support his wife
      and children: Jesse Ray (1893-1979) m. Bertha Nelson, Lillian
      Victoria (1894-) m. Fred Smith, Verna Viola (1897-1979) m.
      George Ellicott, and Margaret May (1903-1971) m. Clarence
      Mitchell.

      About 1899, Hartman became a Christian and shortly enrolled in
      a four-year seminary course, which he completed in three
      years, and was then ordained in the United Brethren Church at
      Goodell, Iowa. Hartman served Iowa congregations in Des
      Moines, Ventura, Lovilia, Stilson, Goodell, and Dumont. In
      1909, the failing health of Mrs. Hartman necessitated a
      different climate, and the family moved to Colorado where
      Hartman served as a supply minister in the Manitou Springs
      area. Later, he was pastor in the United Brethren Churches of
      Mead and Delta, Colorado; Bayard, Nebraska; and Niwot and
      Yuma, Colorado, after which he retired from the active
      ministry although yet a young man.

      In 1913, the Hartman family moved to Longmont, Colorado, where
      Ira set himself up as an optometrist. Although no longer in
      the pastorate of any one congregation, he continued to preach
      as an evangelist throughout the area. A list of the Iowa and
      Colorado towns in which he preached can be found on the
      Chronology page in this guide.

      In July 1951, the Hartmans celebrated their sixtieth wedding
      anniversary. Less than a month later, on August 10, Rev. Ira
      Hartman died at their home in Longmont. His widow died
      October 16, 1954, in the same house; they are buried in
      Mountain View Cemetery, Longmont.
