Hatfield Families in America

Home / Hatfield Families in America

This is the link to several Hatfield families that migrated to America. We’re unsure where they migrated from. This information was compiled by Jerry Hatfield and was previously stored on ghat.com but that site went offline in March 2018.  Jerry Hatfield researched Hatfields for over 20 years.  We couldn’t bear to see that information become unavailable. As such, below is Jerry’s introductory page that we’ve linked to his comprehensive Hatfield genealogical information.


I have a large research database of genealogical information on Hatfield and related names with a significant amount on the Hatfield-McCoy feud which I would like to enhance and share. Of special interest to me is a Samuel Ryan Hatfield who married Helena Wohltman and his brother Henry C. Hatfield. They were all living in Ohio in the the 1860’s. The death certificate for Samuel Ryan Hatfield indicates that his father’s name was S.R. Hatfield from VA, but it is attested to by Samuel Ryan’s son Clarence who might have never known his grandfather. My current speculation is that Samuel and Henry C. Hatfield might have been fathered by Francis M. Hatfield (note the similar family structures) allowing for a mistake in the middle initial of Samuel M. Hatfield under Francis.
