Marshall E. Hatch

Marshall Estes Hatch (1828 - 1878)
Private - First Vermont Cavalry Regiment, Company C

Marshall Estes Hatch was the oldest of three brothers. He was the son of Estes Hatch and Susanna Chase Lyford. Once source gives his date of birth as 27 August 1828. The location is not known, but it may have been in Cabot, Vermont, which was where his mother was from. When he was nearly 10 years old, his father died. His mother remarried the following year.

In 1852 he married Sarah J. Fogg, of Meredith, New Hampshire (another source gives her name as Sarah Vincent). Marshall and Sarah had two children, Addie and Clara. Clara May Hatch was born on 23 October 1857. Addie's birth date is not known, and she is said to have died at an early age. The 1860 US census shows that Marshall worked in Cabot as a peddler. At the time the value of his real estate was $1,000 and the value of his personal estate was $300. The family then consisted of Marshall, Sarah and their daughter Clara.

Marshall (along with his brother Jerome) enlisted on 26 October 1861, as a private in Company C of the First Vermont Cavalry Regiment. His other brother, Gonsalvo Hatch, had enlisted earlier that year, in the Third Vermont Infantry Regiment. Marshall served only a few months in the cavalry regiment. He was discharged on 12 April 1862 for an unknown disability. He returned to Cabot and became very active in buying and selling land in town. He moved to Newport, New Hampshire in 1872, where he was employed as a tin-worker and hardware dealer. He was in business with F. A. Sibley and later with S. G. Stowell. He died in New Hampshire on 17 November 1878. He is buried in Newport at the Maple Street Cemetery. There is a record of his wife filing for a military widow's pension, but the date is not known.

After Marshall's death, his wife moved to Rutland, Vermont to live with her daughter, Sarah, and her husband, Napoleon Bardey.
