Vernon Dalhart’s Biography

Dalhart was born in Jefferson (Texas) and took his stage name from two locations in the same state: Vernon and Dalhart among whom he grew up in the 1890s. His father, Robert Marion Slaughter, died in a fight with his brother-in-law when Vernon was 10 years old.

When he was 12 or 13 years old, the family moved from Jefferson to Dallas, where Dalhart, who was already playing the harp of the mouth and the harmonica, received singing lessons at the conservatory.

He married Sadie Lee Moore-Livingston in 1901 and they had two children, boy and girl. By 1910 the family moved to New York, where he found work playing the piano in a store where he sometimes sang. One of his first roles was in the opera by Giacomo Puccini La fanciulla del West, after which he would perform in HMS Pinafore and Madame Butterfly.
