    • William Russell Hatchett (1794-1899)

      The first family member to live in Caswell County was William R. Hatchett, son of Colonel William H. Hatchett, who moved to Shady Grove Township in 1785. Allen Lellius Hatchett was one of William's seven children. Source: The Heritage of Caswell County, North Carolina, Jeannine D. Whitlow, Editor (1985) at 275-276 (Article #324 "William Henry Hatchett" by Carolyn Bason Long).

      The above source also shows William H. Hatchett and Thomas Hatchett as the grandfather and great grandfather, respectively, of Allen Lellius Hatchett. Other researchers disagree.

      John Hatchett was born 18 Dec 1769 in Amelia Co., VA. He married Nancy Russell on 19 Dec 1793 in Charlotte Co., VA. Nancy was born in 1775 and died 14 May 1795. They had one son William Russell Hatchett born 29 Sep 1794. John died 07 Jul 1840 in Charlotte Co., VA. [The Beaver Pond Neals of Virginia by Carl B. Neal, March 1965]. Source: Kitty Dawson (Email: batsbelfry1@comcast.net).

      William Russell Hatchett and Mary Ann Womack were married 26 Oct 1815.

      William Russel Hatchett's uncle William Hatchett had moved from VA to Caswell Co. in 1815. Carl B. Neal cites writings of William Russell Hatchett from 1840 where he names his mother, Nancy Russell, and his father, John Hatchett. William Russell Hatchett referred to his wife as Polly Womack.

      In The Beaver Pond Neals of Virginia, Carl B. Neal analyzes available data and names 10 children for William Russell Hatchett and Mary Ann Womack. Carl Neal cites the genealogist William Scott Morton of Farmville, Prince Edward Co., VA, as naming 7 children and their dates of birth. These dates correspond with information in the 1830 census for Charlotte Co., VA. That information is as follows: John Tigue (1816), Ann E. (1818), William Archer (1820), James W. (1822), Thomas R. (1824), Mary W. (1826), and Martha N. (1828).

      William Russell Hatchett and wife Mary are in Caswell Co., NC, for the 1850 census. With them at that time are 4 of their children: Thomas R.(1824), Clarinda F.(1834), Elizabeth A.(1836), and Allen L.(1838). All of the children were born in VA.

      Martha N. Hatchett married John W. Mims in Caswell Co., NC, on 26 Mar 1850. Clarinda F. Hatchett married Nathaniel C. Motley in Caswell Co., NC, on 26 Oct 1853. Elizabeth A. Hatchett married Newton B. Jeffress in Caswell Co., NC, on 14 Mar 1855.

      William Russell Hatchett and his wife moved to Caswell between 1838 and 1850, then back to Prince Edward Co., VA, around 1865/1866. They are in Prince Edward Co., VA, for the 1870 census, and his will was recorded there in Nov. 1879 (WB 14, p. 7). His wife Mary's will was recorded there 22 Nov 1881 (WB 14, p. 96).
