BIOGRAPHY

Isaac W. Hatch, a prominent business man of Burlington, Vermont, formerly of Lincoln, Vermont, is a native of the state, born in Panton, August 25, 1835. He traces his ancestry back to Timothy Hatch, his grandfather, who was born in Connecticut. Warren E. Hatch, father of Isaac W. Hatch, was reared on the farm at Panton, Vermont, and obtained his education in the common schools. The greater part of his life was devoted to agricultural pursuits in Panton and Ferrisburg. At the age of seventy-five he removed to Bristol, Vermont, where he became interested with his son in the furniture business, and where he died in 1895, at the age of eighty-two years. A Democrat in politics, Mr. Hatch found favor with his party, and held several positions of trust and responsibility. He married Miss Phoebe C. Smith, who was born at Ferrisburg, Vermont, and the following named children were born to them : Isaac W.; Ida L.; Smith W.; Ernest L.; Ryland F.,; who is engaged in the lumber business; George W., of Burlington, Vermont; and Candace Hatch. The mother of these children died at the age of seventy-three years; she was a member of the Methodist church.

Isaac W. Hatch until his twenty-third year lived upon the farm at Panton. He received his preliminary education in the common schools of that town, and later attended the Vergennes and Tenbrooke schools. His patriotism being fired by the serious conditions which threatened the Union with dissolution, he determined to offer his services in defense of his country. In 1861 he enlisted in Company K, Second Regiment, Vermont Volunteers, as a private. He served in the Sixth Army Corps, and participated in fourteen hard-fought battles, and experienced all the dangers and deprivations of the terrible Civil war period. He received his discharge from the service at Petersburg, Virginia, September 1, 1864. He then returned to his father's farm at Panton, where he remained until 1866, when he purchased a farm at Addison, which he conducted successfully until 1871. At the expiration of this period there was an excellent opportunity for him to enter the hotel business in New York, and followed that pursuit for four years, and then engaged in lumbering and farming at Lincoln, which he prosecuted successfully for eighteen years.

In 1900 Mr. Hatch came to the hotel at Queen City Park, about two miles from Burlington, Vermont, situated on the shore of the beautiful Lake Champlain. Located in the midst of the cottages at this popular resort, it is connected with the city by electric cars. The Queen City Hotel has accommodations for about one hundred and fifty guests, and is fitted up especially for the summer trade. Its rooms are cooled by the ever stirring and invigorating breezes from the lake, and its windows command a view of that splendid sheet of water for many miles, presenting one of the most beautiful spectacles to be witnessed in the state. Mr. Hatch has been eminentlv successful in his management of his hotel, which has become a favorite summer home for many of the most prominent families of the United States. In addition to its accommodations, it also provides for all social enjoyments sought by the pleasure-seekers, and its spacious ball-room and well trained orchestra are among its most popular appurtenances. While thus providing for the comfort and pleasure of his guests, Mr. Hatch has also gained the approbation of his fellow townsmen for the highly useful part he has borne in advancing the interests and adding to the prestige of the village as a resort for health and recreation, and his hotel has been a potent factor in drawing to the place the annual meeting of Spiritualists and other large bodies.

Mr. Hatch has been called to various positions of honor and trust. He served for two years as road commissioner, for four years as selectman, and had the honor of being the only man selected from Addison county to serve upon the jury in the United States court, a position which he filled with credit to himself and to the satisfaction of the bench for three terms. He is a Republican in politics, and has frequently sat as delegate in the conventions of his party.

In 1864 Mr. Hatch was united in marriage to Miss Ann E. Matthews, who was a native of Panton, Vermont. Seven children were born to them, six of whom are still living. Nellie G., wife of Adelbert Barnard, now deceased; Cora L.; Warren M., who married Jennie Hanks, and to whom was born one child, Gladys; May I., wife of H. S. Varney, who is engaged in the mercantile trade; Charles G., employed as a ticket agent; Smith B., deceased; Candance P. Hatch.
