Comprehensive History[edit | edit source]

William Hatfield, born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania in 1800, came to Wayne County with his father Jacob in 1817 and settled in Chippewa Township. He received the last government-issued deed in the township, dated April 7, 1829. He built the existing two-story home on the 80-acre farm.[1]

In 1883, William's youngest son, John Jacob Hatfield, bought the farm from his father's heirs. His son, Almond, bought the farm from his father's heirs in 1928. The farm later passed to Almond's son Robert and then grandson Robert A. Hatfield.[2]
