Biography Directory

T. W. Hatfield Postmaster, Farm Larborer Greeley


     T. W. Hatfield is the present efficient and businesslike postmaster of Greeley and is conducting the affairs of that office to the satisfaction of his fellow citizens. He was born in New York state, March 2, 1856, a son of Nathan and Sophia (Windsor) Hatfield, both of whom were natives of the Empire state.  In the spring of 1869 the family removed to Delaware county and located upon a farm here. The father devoted his life to its cultivation and there passed away, but his widow is still living and lives at Edgewood, Iowa. Ten children were born to their union and all survive.
    T. W. Hatfield began to earn his own livelihood when a youth of seventeen years and was first employed as a farm laborer by the month. He decided, however, that some other occupation would be more congenial and accordingly learned the mason's trade, at which he worked for a period of seventeen years. In 1901 he was appointed postmaster of Greeley and has held that position since, the length of his term in office indicating the thorough understanding which he has of his duties and the able manner in which he performs his work.
    Mr. Hatfield was married in 1879 to Miss Alice J. Hollenbeck, a native of New York state and a daughter of Merrill and Charity Hollenbeek. In 1858 the family removed to Delaware county and settled upon a farm in Honey Creek township, where both the parents passed away. Mrs. Hatfield was one of a family of two children, both of whom are deceased. By her marriage she became the mother of seven children: Cora E., deceased; Lona J., the wife of S. E. Ridenour; Merrill E.; Paul C.; Goldie E., also deceased; Charles R.; and Roy E..  Mrs. Hatfield died July 20, 1913, and was laid to rest in the Grantview cemetery. She was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and she is held in loving memory by those who were privileged to know her intimately.
    Mr. Hatfield is a republican and in addition to his service as postmaster has held the position of township clerk. He is a member of the Masonic order, belonging to Lodge No. 225, A. F. & A. M., of Greeley. He has a one half interest in a tract of one hundred and twenty seven acres of land located in Elk township, which is a well improved and highly cultivated farm, holds title to the building in which the post office is located, and also owns a residence and three lots in Greeley. He has desired financial success and he has prospered in his labors, but he has never forgotten that an honorable and upright life is the truest success, and the esteem in which he is held by his fellow citizens is the reward of his integrity.
