[Oswego Journal]

Patrick Hart, a well known tug boat captain, died in Oswego hospital, Friday night. He had been ill four weeks. In the early sixties Capt. Hart commanded various tugs in Oswego harbor. He was in charge of the John H. Flower ? when she was blown ashore during a furious gale in 1864 while endeavoring to tow a vessel into port. He brought out the Fred. D. Wheeler in 1865 and was afterward in command of the C.P. Morey. Later he went to Chicago and was employed by the vessel by the vessel owners' towing association and during the past few years had been employed by the Daly Bros.' dredging company, of this city, where he was stationed last season on the Rustler. Capt. Hart was regarded as one of the most competent and careful of tugmen along the lakes. He leaves a widow and two sons, Capt. Lawrence M. and Capt. Morgan Hart.
