      PIONEERS OF FLORIDA'S FIRST COAST, PAGE 43:

      When IsaiahD. Hard arrived at the Cowford from St. Marys, GA in January 1821, he found there a single store, run by the partners, William Dawson and Stephen Buckles. Legend has it that Hart pitched his tent at the foot of Liberty Street and livedthere until he built his cabin and brought his family down from Georgia. Ruggedly handsome and a shrewd businessman, Hart often recognized opportunity whereothers failed to se it. He invested in real estate, operated a large boardinghouse for travelers and established a large plantation. In addition he servedas postmaster, clerk of county and superior courts and senator from East Florida in the first Territorial Council under Andrew Jackson. Hart was the first to suggest and successfully implement a plan to have the town site known as The Cowford surveyed in 1822. The town was incorporated in 1833, and renamed Jacksonville, in honor of Andrew Jackson.
