I am looking for anyone who has any info on the Hattus surname. There are few of us and information is very limited. I can trace the family back to NY in 1850. Richard Hattus is listed in the 1850 NY census. He married Phebe King (date unknown), had at least on son, Gardner. Richard served in the Union Army during the Civil War. He was in a hospital in MO at the time of his discharge. I can find no info on him before or after these times.
Gardner had one son named Charles (mother unknown) born in NY. Gardner and Charles then moved to MI. Gardner was married to Kate Bresnahan after his move to MI. Gardner and Kate had two children, Emerson and May.
Kate and her third child died in childbirth.
Gardner then married Mary Hurst. Gardner and Mary had four children, Adolaide b.1890, Arthur b.1891, Charlotte b.1892-93, Alice b.1897.
Any further info would be greatly appreciated.
