    Notes:

    CHARLES PAYTON HARTSHORN, deceased, who was one of the foremost architects of Providence, Rhode Island, during the closing decades of the nineteenth century, was born in Norfolk, Va., on July 31, 1833, son of Samuel W. and Amelia (Dana) Hartshorn, and the descendant of a family established in Massachusetts, in the early decades of the Colonial period.

    At an early age he returned with his parents to Providence, however, which had been the home of the family for three generations, and here he received his education in the public schools. He determined early to become an architect, and prepared for the profession under Thomas A. Tefft, one of the leading architects of the day. Under the latter he developed great promise, and on completing his studies he followed his chosen profession, and later entered into partnership with Charles Wilcox, under the firm name of Hartshorn & Wilcox. This partnership continued until the death of Mr. Hartshorn. The firm rose rapidly to a position of large importance in the architectural world of Providence, and was commissioned to design many of the finest buildings in the city. Among others they erected the Old Ladies' Home, the Olney Street Unitarian Church, the Wayland building and many of the finest residences of the city. In early life he was a Unitarian, but later became a prominent member of the First Congregational Church of Providence. His gifts to charitable and philanthropic endeavors were liberal, and he took an active part in the Union for Christian Work. Of a broad, tolerant, and sympathetic nature, kindly and charitable, he had many friends to whom his death at the height of a successful career came as a painful shock. Charles Payton Hartshorn was a Republican in political affiliation, and although eschewing politics, he served for many years as a member of the school committee of the city. He was well known and highly respected in Providence. The following tribute to him as a man appeared in the 'Providence Daily Journal':

    'Unostentatious in his manner, pure in his life, untiring in his devotion to his work, actively engaging in the works of philanthropy, he quietly and firmly fulfilled the duties which devolved upon him with unswerving fidelity and honor. He was secretary of the Rhode Island Chapter of the American Institue of Architects.'

    Charles Payton Hartshorn married, June 5, 1865, Dr. Woodbury officiating, Helen Almira Snow, who was born May 14, 1833, and died March 11, 1897, daughter of Amos William and Almira Frances (Dorr) Snow, of Providence. They were the parents of one daughter, Stella Josephine, born Jan. 3, 1869, who resides at No. 189 Wayland avenue, Providence. Mr. Hartshorn died at Providence, Aug. 13, 1880.
