In 1879, there are two adjacent farms, belonging to Thomas Hatch Sr. and Thomas Hatch Jr.
The Thomas Hatch Sr. household, in 1881, contains the elderly parents of Thomas Hatch Jr.,
and a couple called RAITT (spelling?). Francis Raitt, from New Brunswick is possibly a son in law
of Thomas and Sarah.

On the Hatch farm property in 1879, there is a one acre parcel which is severed 
and contains a building.
Oral history states that there was once an Orange Lodge on this location (Mike Daley).
The Hatch family were Methodists and may have donated land for an Orange Lodge. There is no
sign of the building today.

Next door to the Hatch family were my Sullivan ancestors. Nicholas O'Sullivan and Mary McGee
are shown on the 1863 Belden map. By 1879, the next generation on the Sullivan homestead are 
Francis and Patrick Sullivan (they dropped the "O"), sons of Nicholas and Mary.
