Robert Wallace Smart (1864-1960) was born in Port Hope to R.W. Smart Sr. and Jane Smart on 3 Dec 1864. He worked as a book-keeper and accountant in Port Hope, and married Georgiana Adelaide Cooper (1863-1937) in Grafton on 13 Oct 1891. The couple lived in a house on Hope Street, and had four children: George, Kathleen, Mary, and Dorothy. Smart served in the 46th Durham Regiment, during the effort to put down the Riel Rebellion, under Col. A.T.H. Williams from 1883-1885; and re-enlisted to serve with the 139th Battalion during World War I (26 May 1916). After serving overseas, Smart returned to his family and they moved to Toronto, where he lived until he died of pneumonia on 4 Jun 1960.
