CARHART, Jeremiah, inventor, born in Dutchess county, New York, in September, 1813; died in New York City, 16 August, 1868. His first years were spent upon a farm, and he received no extended education; but at the age of fifteen years he learned the trade of cabinet-making, and, being a natural mechanic, became a skilful workman, and especially an adept in the use of the lathe. He removed to Buffalo, New York, and made several inventions between the years 1836 and 1846, including the exhaustion-bellows and tubular reed-board that are now used by all American makers of reed-instruments. Mr. Carhart then formed a partnership with E. P. Needham, and began to manufacture melodeons in Buffalo. The firm of Carhart and Needham afterward removed to New York City, and, in addition to making melodeons and organs, manufactured ingenious machinery for making reeds and reed-boards for these instruments, the invention of Mr. Carhart.
