Sixth son and tenth child in a family of 11. They were seven sons and four daughters of Abigail Porter and Timothy Hatch of Genesee County, New York.

Charles married Clymena Rebecca Pierson on 26 July 1834 at Oneida County, New York.

He was the father of 5 or 6 children when he set out for the western territory. It is not known at this time if his family was with him, but it is doubtful, unless they turned back to the east after his death.

His widow and children all settled in the New York, Connecticut, Minnesota, & Wisconcin areas.

Charles was traveling the western trail along the Sweetwater, Wyoming area, near the Big Sandy River, where it is reported he was killed by Indians.

His original gravestone is preserved by the Oregon-California Trails Association.

The site has been fenced by the National Park Service in conjunction with the Trails Association. It is on private property and permission to visit must be obtained from the owner. It is the only burial at this location.
