Hatton, Frank L. (8 NOV 1860 - 27 AUG 1923)
Frank Lincoln Hatton was born Nov. 8, 1860 and departed this life Aug. 27, 1923, after a short illness of heart trouble. He was born in Michigan and came to Wisconsin with his parents, who settled in Janesville, Wis., where he grew to manhood.
He was united in marriage to Mary Ross Gibson, Jan. 11, 1888. To this union three sons were born, Clark LeRoy, Russell Devere, Evan George.
In 1903 he came to Clark County, Wisconsin, where he purchased land southwest of Greenwood and with his tireless energy and devotion to his work, he cleared and built up a home he was proud of. He was just beginning to enjoy life and to using the best modern methods and getting good results of his life’s work. For several years he gave up farm work to his sons and took up cement contract work and was an active agent for the Lowden Barn Equipment Co.
Janesville settlement has lost a man that is very hard to replace. He was honest and upright in all his dealings and had the confidence and respect of all who knew him. He was a member of the M.W.A. for 20 years in the Greenwood Camp no 1450.
His death came as a shock to the entire community as well as the family. The funeral was held from the residence and conducted by Rev. Black of the Presbyterian Church of Marshfield, and the local chapter of the M.W.A. Lodge paid appropriate and fraternal tribute to the memory of their comrade. The remains were laid at rest in the Greenwood Cemetery.
He leaves his wife and three sons, Clark, Russell and Evan, and two grandchildren, Donald Clark and Evelyn Maude, all of Greenwood, and one brother, George, of Janesville, Wis.
Those who came from away to attend the funeral were his brother George, Mrs. Dillenbeck, Wm. Popple, Miss Helen Popple, Mr. and Mrs. E.J. Lowry and Kenneth Lowry of Janesville; Mrs. D.B. Clark and son Ross of Lafayette, Ind.; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Coryell of Loyal, all of whom were relatives of the deceased, Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Mercer of Marshfield and Mrs. Fred Wendt and Mrs. Ghent, Mrs. Wm. Nevell and Miss Laura Wendt of Neillsville.
