Elwood M. Hiatt, one of Jefferson Township enterprising citizens residing on
Section 1, is a native of Indiana, born near Linnville, in Randolph County May
22, 1841. That same year his parents, William and Martha (Jackson) Hiatt,
made their home in Greene Township, Jay County, where they now live and
besides our subject, they have three sons and two daughters, residents of
Jay County – Jasper N., of Penn Township; Jahne E., William P. and Mrs. Mary
A. Kinley, of Greene Township, and Mrs. Martha E. Strohl of Knox Township.
Elwood M. Hiatt has lived in Jay County since early childhood, with the
exception of the time spent in the service of his country and until his
enlistment lived at the home of his parents. In 1864, he became a member
of Company F., One Hundred and Fortieth Indiana Infantry. He was in the
second engagement at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and while in the Twenty-
Third Corps under General Schofield, he joined Sherman’s Army at
Goldsboro, North Carolina and was present at the surrender of General
Johnston and his rebel army. After receiving an honorable discharge, he
returned to his old home in Jay County.
In the year 1865 he was married to Miss Mary C. Lacy, and to this union
was one son, William L., who died at the age of three years. Mrs. Hiatt died
about two years after her marriage. She was an estimable woman, a devout
Christian, being a consistent member of the Methodist Church.
Mr. Hiatt was again married in 1875 to Mrs. Rhoda Taylor, a native of
Randolph County, Indiana and a daughter of John and Phoebe Taylor, now of
Redkey, they being pioneers of Randolph County. By her first marriage with
Ralph Wilson, Mrs. Hiatt had one son, Elmer, who is now living in Illinois. Of
the six children born to Mr. and Mrs. Hiatt, five are living – John F., George M.,
William P., Anna May and Martha E. Their second child, Charles, died in his
second year.
Mr. Hiatt has resided on his present homestead in Jefferson Township since
his marriage, commencing on a tract of eighty acres of which but a few acres
had been cleared. His farm now consists of 130 acres under good
improvement and drainage, a fine residence erected in 1886, and good farm
buildings, the entire surroundings showing care and thrift. Politically Mr. Hiatt
is identified with the Republican Party.
