One of 5 children born to Merton and Angie (Light) Hatch, Velma married a man by the first name of Grant early in life. They never had children, but her nieces and nephews remember her as the "fun & playful, tomboy" aunt. She always wore pants, which was contrary to her generation and style of clothing her sisters wore.
Born in Lincoln County, Maine, at the end of West Neck road of Jefferson, to Merton Hatch and Angeline "Angie" Light Hatch. The farm had been only owned by the Hatch's since its inception by Jonathan Hatch in the 1770's. It remained in the Hatch family until the 1920's when it was sold to the Kennedy family, and became Camp Kieve, which it remains as even today (2010-lpritchett).
Velma's family heritage in Maine and in all of New England is colorful and historic on many levels. For instance she is direct lineage of Elder William Hatch and family arrived on the ship 'Hercules' which was the 2nd of the Pilgrim ships to arrive at Plymouth Colony. Elder Hatch kept order (for better or worse) in the Plymouth Colony village of Scituate,MA. She is also direct lineage to the Mayflower/Plimouth Colony families: Warren and Church.
