Biographical Note

Born in Falmouth, Massachusetts, Sylvanus Hatch (1788-1885) moved to Savannah, Georgia, in 1809, only to leave for Louisiana two years later. During the War of 1812, he served under General Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans. In 1821, Hatch married the widowed Pamela Louisa Nicholson Brown (1788-1850), with whom he had three sons. In 1828, Hatch settled in Stephen F. Austin's colony in Texas, living in Jackson County. He later moved to what-is-now Calhoun County, building a home named Agua Dulce. Hatch also fought during the Texas Revolution and in several battles with Native Americans.
