Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

A native of Derbyshire, England, Mr. Hatfield, one of Utah's prosperous mining men, has been for the greater part of his life, and American citizen and a resident in the West. He was born at Codnor Park on the 3rd day of April, 1849, and sailed from Liverpool for New York on the 31st of May, 1863. The "Ayrshire," upon which he embarked, was a sailing vessel, and he was fifty-two days on the ocean, part of the time becalmed. From New York he went direct by rail to St. Joseph, Missouri, and thence by boat to Florence, Nebraska. There he joined Captain Haight's ox wagon train, bound for Utah, and arrived at Salt Lake City on the 6th of October. Settling at Springville, Mr. Hatfield, until the spring of 1868, pursued the life of a farmer. He then turned his attention to freighting and mining, his first venture in that direction being at White Pine, Nevada, during the famous gold excitement in that region. There he remained until July 1869, when he returned to Springville. The next important even of his life was his marriage, March 14, 1870, to Rhoda Ann Clements. She became the mother of seven children, three sons and four daughters, all but one of them now living. A year after his marriage, Mr. Hatfield went to Tintic, where he engaged in mining and business of various kinds. He was a wide-awake man of affairs, careful and precise in all his dealings, and prosperity crowned his efforts. One of his early successes was made while holding a lease of the ground which afterwards became the famous Bullion-Beck mine. The ore extracted by him was the first mined from that celebrated property. He was one of the original locators of the Swansea mine, opening it up below what was then supposed to be water-level, and paying dividends of over $350,000 from what was believed to be a worked out-mine. Mr. Hatfield now resides at Salt Lake City, in a handsome one on East South Temple Street, the most fashionable residence quarter of the town. Already the possessor of a large fortune, he is still engaged in mining in the principal camps of Utah, Idaho and Nevada.
