John Martin Hatfield Family Record

This family record was written in 1899 by Charles Edmond Hatfield for his brother, Albert Westley Hatfield. The notation at the bottom of the second page states: "Copyd (copied) by C. E. Hatfield Dec 30th 1899 for A. W. Hatfield". That means there must have been another record he copied it from -- perhaps a family bible. Does this mean that Charles E. Hatfield had the originial record he copied it from?  Charles Hatfield is a mystery -- no known wife or children.  Any clues?

Our direct ancestor, Martin Monroe Hatfield, was the 5th son, of John Martin Hatfield and first wife, Martha Jay.






A big THANKS to Charles Edmond Hatfield for making this record over a
hundred years ago. I have a special place in my heart for ancestors who
took the time from their busy lives to record family information. It makes
my job a lot easier!

Carline was his third wife. The had no children together. His first wife was Del Martha Jay. They were married in 1849. She died in 1863 and he farmed the kids out with friends and relatives. There were six boys. His second wife was Maria Ann Freel. They had several children together. She died and he married his third wife, noted above. He had a dozen boys or so who would have carried the name forward. I am a great grandson of William Wiley Hatfield and have much additional info if you should need it. Let me know. Gary Hatfield.
