I have a large research database of genealogical information on
Hatfield and related names
with a significant amount on the
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 similiar family structures) allowing for a mistake in the
middle initial of Samuel M. Hatfield under Francis.
Above, is the coat of arms of a supposed Hatfield which my father gave
me back in the 1960s. If you know who the person was who was
associated with this coat of arms, I would very much like to have
further information on it and them.
A description of the shield is
"Ermine, on a chevron engrailed sable three cinquefoils or."
The motto is simply "Pax."
