About Hezekiah Hatch

Son of Jeremiah Hatch and Elizabeth Haight

He was buried in the cemetery on the hill with Brigham Young preaching his funeral sermon.

Spouse of Aldura Sumner

Children: John Sumner Hatch, Jeremiah Hatch, Adeline Barber, Lorenzo Hill Hatch, Abram Chase Hatch, Elizabeth Winn, and Hezekiah Moroni Hatch.


Hezekiah Hatch was born Dec. 2, 1798, in Charlotte, Vermont, to Jeremiah Hatch and Elizabeth Haight. Hezekiah was the sixth of nine children. He married Aldura Sumner Feb. 3, 1820, in Bristol, Vermont, when he was 21 and she was 16. Over the next 21 years, Hezakiah and Aldura had seven children: John Sumner, Jeremiah, Lorenzo Hill, Abram Chase, Adeline, Elizabeth, and Hezekiah Moroni. Hezekiah earned his living as a farmer. Around 1840, when he was 41, missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints arrived in Lincoln and began preaching the Gospel. Fourteen-year-old Lorenzo was the first in the family to accept the message. He shared it with his mother, Aldura, and they both were baptized in February 1840. Through the instrumentation of Elder Pelatiah Brown, Hezakiah also accepted the message and was baptized in the fall of 1840 (about the time Hezekiah Moroni was born).

Hezekiah shared the Gospel with his parents and siblings, and they all joined the Church except Jeremiah Jr. Soon the Hatches made plans to join the Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois; however, before Hezekiah could sell his farm and move with his family, Aldura died and Hezekiah's oldest son, John, became seriously ill. Hezakiah left John in the care of friends in Lincoln and moved with his remaining children to Nauvoo in 1842. Before the Hatches arrived at their new home, John died as expected of dropsy of the bowels.

Hezekiah bought a farm six miles from Nauvoo and also a lot near the Temple for a house. He built the house in February 1843 but died from bilious fever a few months later on June 25 at age 44. Before Hezekiah died, Hyrum Smith visited his home and gave him a Patriarchal Blessing. Hezekiah was survived by both his parents and many relatives.

Sixty-seven years later on his deathbed, Lorenzo Hill Hatch spoke about his father: "I will say to the credit of Hezekiah Hatch, my father, that he never slacked his endeavors after the death of my mother, who died in the town of Lincoln (Vermont) when we were children. "He helped in building the Temple up to the time of his death. He bought a farm from the Prophet Joseph, and he got it fenced. He bought a city lot close to the Temple. He expected to live a long time in that vicinity, thinking that the Church would remain in that locality, but his life was cut short."
