Adrian was the 5th of 9 children (5th son) born of John Hatch (1727-1806) and his wife Sarah Richards (1728-1808). Adrian's siblings were: Benjamin (1748-1821), Alpheus (b. 1750), Ashur (1752-1826), Rizpah (b. 1754), Naomi (b. 1758), John (1761-1852), Harper (b. 1763), and Sarah (b. 1769).
At about the age of ten years, Adrian moved with his parents to Norwich, Gloucester (now Windsor) County, New York (now Vermont).
In the late part of September or early October 1776, Adrian enlisted as a Private in Captain John House's Company, Colonel Nahum Baldwin's New Hampshire Regiment. Colonel Baldwin's Regiment was raised to reinforce the Continental Army in New York. Adrien marched from Hanover, Grafton County, New Hampshire down the Connecticut River to New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut, thence to New Rochell, Westchester County, New York, within 20 miles of New York City, and thence to White Plains, Westchester County, New York. Adrien was in the Battle of White Plains, October 28, 1776. He was discharged from this service, along with the rest of the Regiment, December 1, 1776.
In July 1777, Adrian entered service for one month, as a substitute for his father, John Hatch, in Colonel Peter Olcott's Vermont Militia Regiment. He marched through Rutland, Rutland County, Vermont to Mount Independence, across Lake Champlain from Fort Ticonderoga, at the time British General John Burgoyne's army was advancing up the lake. Adrian remained at Mount Independence for 2 nights and one day and then marched to Hubbardton, Rutland County, Vermont where they remained until after the Battle of Hubbarton. At that time, Colonel Olcott's Regiment was in the advance of the main army. They did not arrive back at the battle ground until the engagement was over. On August 16, 1777 (the date of the Battle of Bennington), Adrian was drafted for 2 months into service with Captain Timothy Bush's Company, Colonel Joseph Marsh's Vermont Infantry Regiment. Adrain marched from Norwich to Pawlet, Rutland County, Vermont where he was stationed until his time expired. He and most of the rest of Captain Bush's Company was discharged after serving 1 month and 20 days.
In August 1780, Adrian, then a Corporal, served 2 days, in Captain Elijah Burton's (Norwich) Company when they marched to Royalton, Windsor County, Vermont, their Militia Regiment's Headquarters, at the orders of their Regimental Commander, Colonel Peter Olcott. On October 16, 1780, Adrian commenced 3 days of service in Captain Timothy Bush's Company, Colonel Peter Olcott's Vermont Militia Regiment at the time the enemy came to Royalton. Immediately thereafter, on October 19th, Adrian engaged and served 6 days in the same Militia Company employed in guarding and scouting at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont. The object of this deployment was to keep a garrison at Strafford to prevent about 15 of the town's inhabitants, who had left in the night and went to the enemy, from returning and burning the town.
In April 1781, Adrian enlisted as the 1st Sergeant in Captain Abner Seelye's Company, Colonel Benjamin Wait's Infantry Battalion in the service of the State of Vermont for that year's campaign. Adrain marched from Norwich to Fort Wait at Corinth, Orange County, Vermont where he was employed in building a Fort. Adrain was discharged from this service, November 16, 1781.
Adrian married, February 6, 1783 at Norwich, Sally Pike (b. 1766) by whom he had at least 2 sons: Amos (b. 1785) and Adrian (1792-1854).
