From The Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy, North Carolina, Vol. 2 - Cane Creek Meeting was located on the Tiger River, in Union County, in the west-central part of South Carolina. A meeting for worship was authorized by Quarterly Meeting held at Cane Creek, North Carolina, in 11th month 1775. A meeting had been established at Padgets Creek, in the same county in 1774. These two meetings were attached to Bush River Monthly Meeting until 1789, when Cane Creek Monthly Meeting was established by action of New Garden Quarterly Meeting, with preparative meetings at Cane Creek and Padgets Creek. The first sitting of the Cane Monthly Meeting was held the 21st of 11 month, 1789. The committee appointed by the Quarterly Meeting to attend the opening, included John Sanders, William Stanley, Joseph Hiatt, Tristram Barnard, Barnabas Coffin and James Thornburgh. Beginning in 1803, the migration to the northwest began. When the people of Cane Creek Monthly Meeting removed to Ohio they took the records with them. The book of records of births and deaths was continued in use by Caesars Creek Monthly Meeting, Ohio, and remains in the possession of that meeting to this day. Caesar Creek MM was largely made up of former members of Cane Creek MM, SC. The books containing the marriage records and the minutes of the women's meeting were returned to North Carolina Yearly Meeting after more than 100 years. The book of minutes of the men's meeting has not been found.

While no Hiatts were found in the limited Cane Creek MM records in this periodical, Joseph Hiatt attended the opening meeting and a Lydia Hiatt is recorded as attending the first women's meeting. The grandchildren of George and Martha Hiatt are known to have immigrated to Clinton County, Ohio.

The New Garden MM gives a date of death for George Hiatt as 10-28-1793. The children of George and Martha Wakefield Hiatt are listed as: Mary b. 4-28-1726 O.S. John b. 12-19-1729 Esther b. 2-1-1731 Ann b. 12-2-1733 Ruth b. 4-1-1735 Christopher b. 10-22-1737 Ursula b. 12-22-1740 William b. 7-1-1742 Elizabeth b. 11-22-1745 Lydia b. 3-22-1747 Joseph b. 4-3-1753 Perhaps this is the Joseph Hiatt and Lydia Hiatt mentioned in the Cane Creek MM original meeting.

His daughters Ruth and Ursula are named in the will, and his son William is named as an executor. Of his son Joseph, who is known to have been living, there is no mention.
