Hiatt history from Leola Hiatt Lagerquist and Nettie Hiatt Peterson: Dunseith & St. John
Posted by Evon Lagerquist (77): Dunseith, ND
Gary, it is Harmon Albert Hiatt, he was born in 1854 and died in 1923, according to his head stone at the cemetary, and Mom and Nettie. His 1st wife and mother to Amos & Henry was Mary Victoria Louder Hiatt. She was born in 1862 and died in 1885 in Iowa. GGHarmon then married Louisa Alice Woodford, and they had George Franklin, Joseph William(Uncle Willie), Anna May, John Jackson(Uncle John J.), James Arthur(Uncle Art), Hannah Dililah(Lila), Charlottie Marie, Harry Isaac, and Walter LeRoy. After Louisa’s death, he married Myrtle Emma Klang. So, Harmon Albert Hiatt had 3 wives all together!! Calvin Hiatt in Portland, OR. may have more onfo on the Hiatt’s. Thanks, Gary.

Wayne, I’m sorry to have taken so long getting back to you. Circumstances went
beyond my control. I see your first email is dated Apr 12. I went to a
Corps of Engineers training class in Dallas on Apr 6 and didn’t get back
until Apr 17. On the 19th, Winifred Eurich passed away and I was going
to come up for the funeral. The following day, before I even got plane
reservations made, my wife’s younger brother, at 54, died of a heart
attack in Mississippi. We got back from there on Sun the 26th and I’ve
been playing catch-up ever since. I’d love to get that Japanese instrumental back if it’s the one your
Uncle Hank has/had. I knew him as Henry so Hank sounds a little
strange. I don’t really remember a second record but there may have
been. I have a friend with a turn-table so maybe I can copy it to a
tape and then to a CD. If you need me to pay postage – no problem. Wayne, I don’t think I’ve seen you since your high school graduation. I
probably wouldn’t recognize you now if I met you on the street. They
say everybody changes except yourself? That may or may not be right.
I’ve always tried to come back home at least once a year but once I get
there it’s hard to get away to look up anyone. You live right in
Bottineau right? Dale
