Daniel Hartig was born 1848 at Black Forest, Adelaide SA, his parents being Hieronymus Georg Hartig and Rebecca Louisa Tietzel, who immigrated to SA from Germany in 1846 aboard the ship “George Washington”.

Daniel & Franz Hartig, along with another brother Eli were teamsters in outback SA, and apparently well known throughout the district.

Daniel never married.

He was admitted to the North Terrace Lunatic Asylum/Hospital, Adelaide on 14th Oct 1892 where he died just over a month later on the 16th Nov 1892.  His records from the Asylum indentify his last residence being at Farina.  The death reference from Genealogy SA shows he died of Paralytic Dementia.

Records show that he was buried in West Terrace Cemetery.

Decendency note:    Farina visitor Warren Kenneth Bird is related to Franz Georg Hartig (Daniel’s brother) & Rosetta Clemence Lewis (his great grandparents), their daughter Eva Ellen Florence being his grandmother.  Although Eva’s birth was registered in Farina, research indicates that this family was located in Hergott Springs and moved to Mt Isa Queensland in the late 1890s.

No known ownership of land at Farina.

The information in this profile was compiled by Farina visitor Leah Bird.
