She was the daughter of Joseph Hon and Malinda Wills.

Hattie was first married to Joseph Campbell. They had five children: John Gifford (born Nov 26, 1895); Calla, who was known as "Callie" (born Nov 6, 1897); Pearlie May (born May of 1900); Beulah (born 1904); and Leonard S. (born Jan 23, 1907).

Shortly after Hattie married Joseph, they moved from Estill County to Menifee County. They lived near the town of Rothwell. They were seen living there in the 1900 Census.

But Joseph died just six years later. Hattie was then pregnant with their fifth child. So she had to raise all those children by herself. By the 1910 Census, they had moved to Powell County, and they lived next door to Hattie's brother Alvin and his family. Hattie and Alvin's mother Malinda lived with him as well. They all lived on the North Fork of Red River Road.

Hattie and her children were very poor, and she struggled every day to put food on the table.

In 1912, Hattie got remarried to Apperson Lovely. He was 32 years older than Hattie. He had been married at least eight times, and had fathered at least twenty-three children, many of whom were illegitimate.

But Apperson was financially secure. He had a big house, on a big farm. Hattie and her children moved in there, and for the first time in their lives, they did not have to worry about money. This made a big impression on their daughter Callie. She learned the benefit of marrying a man with money.

Hattie had three children with Apperson: Carlos Omer (born March 4, 1913); Marie (born May 23, 1915); and Hobert (born June 22, 1919).

Apperson died in 1942. Sometime after that, Hattie left Kentucky and moved to Cincinnati, to be close to her daughter Callie. Hattie lived at 4116 Edwards Road. She developed stomach cancer, and died six months later.
