The earliest Hatton I'm directly descendent from Samuel Hatton from England. Story tells he ran away to Ireland, finding no work there, he immigrated to America, Virginia to be exact. As a young man, He worked on George Washington's farm and served in the revolution under Captain William Haffner from 1777 to 1781. Before entering the service he married Rosanna Queen daughter of John Queen. Samuel and Roseanna had thirteen children. After serving in the Virginia Militia during the Revolutionary War, he and his family lived in Washington Co, Maryland and Hampshire Co, West Virginia, and finally settled in the Big Sandy River valley near Huntington, West Virginia. Many of his descendants still live in the area.
All Hatton’s, Hatten, and Hayton in this area is descendant of Samuel Hatton, as these are variant spellings, which have been found in the family. The original Norman French ending of "on" is he believes the correct family name, and history agrees.
I am researching for all siblings of:
Samuel David Hatton - Roseanna Queen
William Henry Hatton - Susanna Barbara Flick
Milo Hatten - Emeline Frances Newman
Amos Davis Hatten – Sadie Catherine Coyne
Arthur Coyne Hatten - Helen Fassett Nesbitt
Frederick Coyne Hatten – Virginia Margaret Liggett
Donald Coyne Hatten - Jana Lynn Stinnett
Any information would be appreciated.
