Calvin Ellis Hatfield, son of Robert and Harriet [Parshall] Hatfield, was born in Washington county, Pennsylvania, on October 8, 1869. When but a small child he came with his parents to the state of Iowa and located in Lucas county, where he grew to young manhood, and where he was married to Miss Tessie A. Parsons. To their union four children were born, Pearl, Sylvia, Hazel and Robert, the latter dying in infancy. Mrs. Hatfield died on March 9, 1899.
Mr. Hatfield was again married on February 19, 1902 to Miss Nancy Jane Hawkins. Ten children were born to them: Gladys, Theodore, Elma, Martha, Doris, Kenneth, Twila, Merle, Ellis and Lois Maxine, the latter dying in infancy.
Mr. Hatfield leaves to mourn their loss his wife and the children above mentioned, twelve grandchildren, one brother, M. A. [Melvin Anderson] Hatfield, of Russell, Iowa, one sister, Mrs. J. W. [Mary Jane] May, of Chariton and a number of other relatives and a host of friends.
He was converted in 1902 at Sharon Baptist church and was baptized into that church by the Rev. M. S. Clark and has been a faithful member of that organization until the Master said "It is enough, come up higher."
He was a good, honest, hard working man, a splendid citizen and neighbor, and dealt in a kindly manner with his neighbors and businessmen. He will be greatly missed in the Millerton community. All of his children were at his bedside during his illness and death.
