Capt. Heart assisted in building Fort Harmar, at the mouth of the Muskingum river. He was evidently a'man of education, and had served in the Revolutionary army. His survey was made while the ground was yet covered with a heavy growth of forest trees.
In 1801, the Rev. Mr. Harris, while on a tour through the Ohio country, resurveyed them and inserted an engraved plan in his published Journal.
