Lacey Opdycke
Joseph Hatfield
Hi there,

My name is Lacey Opdycke and I am doing some research on my family tree. I saw that you commented on the Find a Grave of Joseph Hatfield b. 1740 and was wondering if you by chance had any documentation on him? ex. Marriage Records, census records, birth records etc. I am a history student and have been extremely interested in this project I have started because I think it's amazing to be a direct descendent from not only a Revolutionary War Soldier, but also a Civil War Soldier and a Hatfield in general.

I am looking to join the DAR and I am seeking out people who are also related to my ancestors to look for the proper documentation.

Thank you so much! I appreciate any help or guidance you can give me!

G.W. Hatfield
Rusty, I believe you have an error or two in the info you posted for George Washington Hatfield. He was the son of Ale Hatfield (who is buried out in the field near the Armistead Hatfield cemetery, his grave surrounded by a low concrete wall & a number of thorn trees) & Elizabeth Young (Ale's 2nd wife, with whom he lived for many years before their marriage). Mordecai A. Hatfield was G.W.'s younger *brother* (b. c.1818) -- and his middle name *may* have been "Ale," which may be the source of the confusion. I've been working on the Indiana Hatfields since the 1960s (I descend through G.W.'s daughter, Rachel), and I can document all this through wills & court documents.
