Found in HH Book by Wm Perry Johnson and the Hiatt Family by John Beasley.

William Hiatt was a farmer, bequeathing over 1300 acres in his will. He and wife Alice were members of Hopewell Friends Mtg. for 19 years or longer. The children of William Hiatt and his first wife remained in Virginia; those of Alice removed to North and South Carolina. From information sent April 16, 1991 by Darleen Hiatt Peterson of Wheaton, Ill. 60189: Copy of the William Hyatt land grant 30 Oct 1754. She writes also, "I have all of his Deeds and Indentures from Frederick Co., Va but am sending only this DEED as I believe it to be quite 'special.' No grave site was found in the cemetery records there for Wm Hiatt/Hyatt for which I am so sorry.

She also "enclosed several pages from the Hopewell Friends History, 1734 - 1934 which indicate the 'Marriage intentions' of William Hiatt and Alice Lowden made in the Hopewell Meeting House in 1748 before it burned down." She also recommends the society of Frederick Co., Historical Society in Winchester, Va. for a source of information.
