Naomi Ann Hatt was born ca 1855 in Indiana to Joseph Franklin and Cynthia Ann McKinsey Hatt. She had four siblings, Sarah E., William Albert, Maria (Hunt), and Charles Reuben Hatt.
In 1864 she drowned while walking across a swollen stream on a log. Her body was never found. Her family lived in Liberty Township, Parke County, Indiana, at the time of her death. The account of her death is listed in a Parke County newspaper as an unusual death.
Her name is added here in this cemetery as a Memorial to her, even though she was never found. In name she is listed with her parents and two of her siblings.
She was probably named Naomi after her materal great-grandmother, Naomi Hollingsworth Spray, the daughter of Elias and Susannah Pearce Hollingsworth, well-known Quakers from South Carolina.
