HATFIELD Family

The photo above is of my Hatfield family. My great grandfather DeWitt Clinton “D.C.” Hatfield (sitting on chair, left) is seen with 9 of the 17 children that he fathered by three wives. The photo was taken in 1914 in front of DeWitt’s Hardware Store and Ice House that he owned in Calhoun County, Illinois. A couple of years after this photo was taken, the store burned to the ground and the family moved to Lincoln County, Missouri.

Those in the photo are, left to right: Louis “Louie,” DeWitt — holding the hand of Harvey. Behind Harvey is Hurley. Next to Harvey is Lena and next to her is Roy and then Christina. Behind Christina is my grandfather Ora. My great grandmother, Lewellen (Fry) is seated at right holding the baby, Lela. Lewellen was pregnant with Clyde when this photo was taken. “Lou Ella” as she was called, was DeWitt’s 3rd wife. She was 18 years younger than DeWitt. My grandfather, Ora Ezrah Hatfield is standing directly behind her. To the far right is Eugene. D.C. would have been 59 years old when this photo was taken. D.C. outlived Lewellen by 14 years, so he outlived all three of his wives. Lewellen went on to have one more child after Clyde. Lowell was stillborn on February 27, 1919 and Lewellen died of pneumonia in 1920, leaving D.C. with young children still at home.

DNA Testing and My Hatfield Family

Like many HATFIELDS, I was always told when I was a young girl, that we were related to the infamous Hatfields of the “feuding” Hatfields & McCoys. I never had any proof that I was or was not related to the feuding Hatfield, but now I do! I am NOT related to the feuding Hatfields.

In 2005 I took a sample of DNA from my father, Edsel Hatfield. I sent it in to FamilyTreeDNA and then went on the Hatfield Rootsweb Mailing List to encourage other Hatfields to submit their DNA for testing.  In 2007, there were finally two other Hatfield men that had submitted their DNA samples that matched my dad’s DNA.  Those results have now proven that I am not descended from the feuding Hatfields, but rather the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania family of John Hatfield and Catherine Supplee Hatfield. Their son was Revolutionary War Soldier Andrew Supplee Hatfield. Results of the DNA tests can be seen at http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/hatfield/results

My Current Research

With DNA results in hand, my quest now is to document my line of descent back to Andrew Supplee Hatfield. I had previously documented my Hatfield family back to Jacob Hatfield, father of William and grandfather of DeWitt. My great-great grandfather was William HATFIELD. He was born in Indiana in 1830 and married Christiana BUTCHER in Calhoun County, Illinois on April 13, 1857. William and Christiana and their son, DeWitt Clinton, born March 31, 1858 (my great-grandfather) were on the 1860 census of Calhoun County, Illinois. Also on that census and living in William’s household was Mary HATFIELD. Research points to this Mary being William’s sister Mary Priscilla Hatfield who was born in Indiana in 1835. Also a Jacob HATFIELD was living in the household, born in 1805 in Virginia. I believe that this is William’s father, Jacob Hatfield. Jacob Hatfield was on BOTH the 1860 census of Calhoun County, Illinois AND the 1860 census of Keokuk, Lee County Iowa census. How could this have happened? Because the Calhoun County census was taken on June 9, 1860 and the Lee County census was taken on September 25, 1860. That was more than enough time for Jacob to have left Illinois and traveled back to Indiana. My Granduncle Harvey Hatfield told me that his grandfather (William Hatfield) had gone “back” to Indiana. I never knew what he meant by that, because at the time he told me I did not know that the family originally came from Indiana.  I find them in the following census records:

1830 census of Vigo Co., Indiana 

Jacob Hatfield is in Indiana living next door to Aaron Hatfield. Jacob has 1 son under 5 (William) and one daughter under 5 (Mary Priscilla) and a wife 20-30. Researcher Leslie tells me that Aaron is a son to Jonas Hatfield and his wife Nancy. Jonas is a son to Capt. Andrew Supplee Hatfield. “I don’t see any way that your Jacob could be anything but either an unresearched brother or first cousin to this Aaron.” Elaine thinks Jacob is 1st cousin to Aaron.

Eversole, Elizabeth Hatfield, married Jacob Hatfield on 27 Oct 1833 in Vigo Co. Indiana.

– M. Elizth. age 21, b. IN

– Wm. age 20, b. IN

– Hatfield, Jacob, age 54, b. Va, Laborer

– Hatfield, Frances Iowa age 12, b. IA

Although no surname is indicated by the census taker for the family with whom Jacob Hatfield lived in Vigo Co. in Sept 1860, this is Henry CHRISTY and wife Susannah (Hatfield), you can see Henry Christy’s 1850 census listing in Vigo Co. for confirmation.

It seems that William left to go search for Gold in California during the latter years of the Gold Rush. I wonder what would have brough him to California so late after the initial gold rush?

1870 Census Coloma, El Dorado, CA; Jun 30, 1870; Roll: M593_72: Page 3

Hatfield, Wm 44 Indiana Miner (living alone)

El Dorado County was founded February 18, 1850 as one of the original 27 counties making up the new state of California. The gold discovery at Coloma in 1848 sparked one of the biggest gold rushes ever, and changed the region quickly and drastically. It was in the town of Coloma in 1848 at Sutter’s Mill on the American River that James Marshall initiated the California Gold Rush with a single sentence, “Boys, I believe I’ve found gold!”. By 1852, Coloma was a busy town of 12,000 miners and merchants, each seeking their fortune.

The age of daughter William’s daughter Nancy (age 5-born in 1875) indicates that William was back in Illinois by 1874-75 and he must have died between 1875 and 1880 since William’s wife is listed as a widow on the 1880 Ripley County Missouri census.

1880 census of Ripley County, Missouri

Christiana HATFIELD is a widow with her 5 children (all born in Illinois.) The census lists the following children living in the household:

1. DeWitt HATFIELD, b. 1858 (my great grandfather)

2. Andrew J. “Jack” HATFIELD, born 1861 (could have been named after his ancestor Andrew Supplee HATFIELD)

3. Mary HATFIELD, born 1864 (could have been named after Mary Priscilla)

4. Elizabeth HATFIELD, born 1866 (could have been named after Elizabeth EVERSOLE HATFIELD)

5. Nancy HATFIELD, born 1875 (could have been named after Nancy, first wife of Jacob)

DeWitt was back in Calhoun County on the 1900 and 1910 census with his family.

Land Records in Vigo County, Indiana

I recently copied pages from the book Families of Vigo Co., Indiana and in it are land maps showing land owned by Jacob, Henry, and Isaac Hatfield in the 1830s. Jacob owned the land that the Terre Haute airport is currently built on.

I WOULD LIKE TO CORRESPOND WITH ANYONE WHO IS DESCENDED FROM THIS LINE OF HATFIELDS — Andrew HATFIELD & wife Mary MANN; Jacob HATFIELD and wives Nancy ? or Elizabeth EVERSOLE; William HATFIELD & wife Christiana BUTCHER. Please email me at Hatwelle@aol.com.

Pennsylvania Hatfields

See Jerry Hatfield’s website at http://www.ghat.com/hatftrec.htm to see the Pennsylvania line of Hatfields.

Please note that the Jurian/Georgius Hartsvelder shown as Number 1 is NOT the father of John Hatfield! DNA testing has PROVEN that Jurian is NOT in this line of Pennsylvania Hatfields. Scroll down to (the 2nd) Number 1 JOHN HATFIELD ( b. 1717 PA), as he is the first proven ancestor in this line of Hatfields. My line of descent follows:

Andrew S. Hatfield in Cabell County, West Virginia

In Oct. 2009 I visited Point Pleasant where Andrew Hatfield fought in the Battle of Point Pleasant, which is considered by some to be the first battle of the Revolutionary War. There is a “mansion,” which is a house that was built in the late 1790′s that is located at the battle site park and in that house there is a booklet that is sold that lists Andrew as a participant in that battle. Andrew and his family settled at what is now Cabell County, West Virginia. In 1802, Andrew is said to have purchased 578 acres at Roach, in Cabell County. This land was, and still is, in a rural area in the southern part of the county. Andrew is said to have owned all the land in the area later referred to as Hinchman Bend. The Hatfield Family Cemetery on Guyandotte River Bank at Roach, WV was washed away years ago by floods. The photo above shows the stone honoring Andrew’s service in the Rev. War which has been placed at the new Hatfield Cemetery on McComas Road near Roach by the DAR. Andrew and family moved from Loudan Co., VA to Big Stoney Creek in Fincastle (present day Giles Co., VA), before 1775. He was elected Captain in the Virginia Militia in 1781. In about 1800 the family settled in Kanawha Co., VA, near present day Salt Rock, WV.

Andrew Hatfield and Mary MANN

Some online genealogies show Mary MANN as Mary MARR. I found the original marriage bond on microfilm in the Library of Virginia. It clearly shows Mary MANN as her name. The marriage register incorrectly lists ANDERSON Hatfield, rather than Andrew and Mary Mann and John Mann as Mary’s father which is correct. See the images for these two marriage documents above.

To see ALL the actual photos of all the various marriage records for Andrew Hatfield and Mary MANN, go to my Andrew Hatfield Mary Mann website.

    Wow, great work! I am the great grand-daughter of baby Lela, and I think it’s awesome you posted that photograph, and shared all this information. I am only just beginning to study my family heritage, but life gets so much easier when other family members are helping out! I was just wondering if you got any farther, determining where the mysterious Jacob came from? Thanks so much for sharing what you’ve found!

  2. Hi Rhonda,

    I’m so glad to hear from you! I have found out SO much on our Hatfield family, and I have stacks of documents and copies of book pages and so much that I need to enter on this website. It’s going to take time to get it all typed out. I do know about Jacob. But I still have no proof on our connection with Andrew. But I will explain all that in time. I will email you privately.

  3. Sunny Evans says:

    Thomas Hatfield 1761-1843 married Martha Adamson, both from PA, is my 6th great grandfather. I’m trying to locate his parents. I am also trying to verify his son, Jonas 1800-1836 married Sarah Matthews 1801-1846 and they are the parents of Marquis Hatfield 1815-1901 married Mary Ann Wills 1819-1866. These Hatfield living in Brown County, Ohio near Ripley, Ohio.

    I have verification of Thomas and Martha tomb stones, and marriage date for Jonas, age 15 and Sarah age 14. Marquis was born 27 Dec 1815. I have court documents verifying Marquis filed a petition against Jonas’ heirs, stating he had a right to 1/7 part of the land.

    Can you help, seems like I go in a circle on my research and no one on ancestery.com has any information on Marquis Hatfield.

    thanking you in advance.

  4. I have Thomas Hatfield as the son of Thomas and grandson of John Hatfield, born ca 1690 in Germantown, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. He married Elizabeth ? about 1710 in Germantown. John’s son John, born 1717 married Catherine Supplee. email me at Hatwelle@aol.com for more info.

    I see that you have shown somewhere in your research that William Hatfield 1702 was born in Haverfordwest wales. This erroneous material was given to me before I had sense enought to check everything and I put it in a famiy tree on line and it is all over the place including GHAT I am going to to try to drop an outline file oThe William Hatfield Lines

  10. Elaine Powell says:

    Carol,
    Perhaps you’ve gotten my website mixed up with another Hatfield website. I do not have a William Hatfield, born 1702 in Wales. I do not even have a William Hatfield, b. 1702 in my family file. And I have no Hatfields that were born in Wales in my file. I looked on Jerry Hatfield’s website and I cannot find a William Hatfield, b. 1702. What is the URL for his page that you found that info on?
    When I was doing research on my (not Hatfield) ancestors who lived in Jamestowne, I saw the information on the William Hatfield who sailed to Jamestowne in 1621. I never tried to connect him to my Hatfields.
    Do you know if William 1702 connects to any of the 3 main American Hatfield lines?
    Thanks,
    Elaine Hatfield Powell

  11. Elaine Powell says:

    Carol,
    I just noticed that perhaps part of your message was cut off. You end your comment with “These men were apparently named for Thomas who was killed in the Revolutionary War. nto this file.” Was there more to your comment?
    Also, from which Hatfield line do you descend?
    Elaine

  12. carol hatfield says:

  15. Carol Hatfield says:

    In answer to your earlier question, I am descended from the William Hatfield line I described:
    William Hatfield 1601 England 1678 MD
    John Hatfield abt 1655 Nansecomb Upper NOrfolk Virginia

  16. Carol Hatfield says:

    William 1601

    Samantha (Newhouse), William, Franklin e (md Samantha Dusenbury), Joseph (Nancy GAris d/o Henry and Clarissa Hatfield Garis), Lydia b 1854 died 1870 Mahaska county Iowa

    William b 1842 in Rush co IN married Laura Louisa Cummings d/o William M and Clarinda Levi (d/o Isaac Levi Jr) October 26, 1866 Mahaska County Iowa.They were the parents of Willard Clifton 1867 and Ulysess Milton 1869. Milt was my grandfather. He died in 1914 Mahaska County Iowa.
    Ulysess Milton, Milt hatfield married Emma Lillian Fetterhoff dau of Albert H and Isabelle Turner FEtterhoff. Isabelle is linked to ADairs, Buntain, Hamilton and Lowery’s in Rockbridge, Va and Miami and Carroll Counties in Indiana as well as Hillsboro, Highland County, OH. Milt and Emma were the parents of Lester Glenn, my father, Helen Hulda (Clyde Vance), a stillborn son, and Elliot Lynn b 1911

    Lestser Glen md Grace IOne Sells d/o Willilam henry and Anne Laura Willey Sells of Oskaloosa, Iowa. They Had five children Willar died 1988, June died 2007, Willma died 2009, myself and a younger brother.

    This is a totally different line from most of what Jerry Hatfield has and I hesitate to put it on his site b ecause my cousin jumped the gun and posted some tenative work I had done and now other’s have added some inacurate material to their lines. For instance I found Aunt Helen with the right husband and children in someone elses family. The material above is proved and documented so I think I have it right at last. Am trying to find port of origin for William 1601 who appears to have had private resources and left VA in 1676 with money from the sale of his acreage in VA and acquired 5 00 acres in Md as well as buying land from one Thomas Collins. This is the start of the DELAWARE HATFIELDS who traveled to OH, IN, and Iowa in my line.

    Willilam John 1708 had several childlren. Elizabeth was born 1725, Levi 1727, Jonathon, John, Thomas, SArah, and Mary , William b 1740 above and Whitely who was named after his grandmother’s family name b 1741 proven by Delalware Military records of 1759 which give his age.

    It appears from the research of this line and the Thomas and Sarah Allen Hatfield line that John was the father of Thomas 1767 and had sons Samuel and John who were killed in 1781 REV WAR. He also had a daugher Hannah or Anne who married a Thomas Davis in Montgomery Co OH. Owen John and William in my line went surety of $1500 for her when DAvis died in 1804. They were first cousins.

    It also appears that Thomas Hatfield who md Isabelle Elizabeth ARcher in Allen Co IN was a cousin through SAmuel Hatfield c. 1765 died 1781 REV WAR. This would explain all the tangled families who moved in groups to OH by 1801 and on to Indiana in about 1824. SEe Sugar Creek Cem lists Montgomery Co OH and the records of the church there.

    Hope this helps. Carol Hatfield

    This is so very interesting! I was trying to google information about the store DeWitt had in Calhoun and stumbled upon this! Great history to have. DeWitt is my great-great grandpa.

  18. Elaine Powell says:

    Well hello cousin Megan!
    I’m glad I was able to help you find your great grandpa. If you’d like to know any more about the family, let me know. I will be posting more photos. I have copies of a scrapbook that was owned by DeWitt’s daughter Christine. There are many photos of the Hatfields in it.
