Son of Reuben (died when Samuel was aged 6) & Mary (Stout) Hiatt. 19 Jan 1859 in Ogden, UT married Mary Eleanor Taylor.They are the parents of 14 children: Samuel R., Frank, Jeanette, John, Eleanor 'Nellie', Sarah, Mary Jane, Charles, Emeline, Elijah 'Lige', George, Louise, Alfred, & Burt. After his mother's death, he went to Texas with his brothers, Stephen, Charles & Rueben. There he was married to Emeline Pinkley who died after childbirth, as did the child. Sam joined a group who were headed to the California Gold Fields, while on their way they stopped in Salt Lake (City). While there Sam looked for his brother, Elihu. As he came into to town on his horse "Billey" with a pistol on each hip, riding down the center of the street, he was hailed by a stranger who said, "Brother Hiatt, you are looking for your brother, Elihu. He lives in Farmington." Sam was given directions. He went to visit his brother. He didn't care for the men he was traveling with, so decided to stay with his brother, although he wasn't going to become a Mormon! In the Spring of 1859 he was baptized. From Farmington he went to teach school at Slaterville. It was here that he met his future wife, Mary Eleanor Taylor. They lived in Utah for awhile, to Idaho, to Hermiston, OR. This short bio by his g-granddaughter, from info by his granddaughter, Rhoda Huff.
