      Edwin Sterling Hatheway was born at Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont, April 6, 1821, and died in Mitchell, South Dakota, September 14, 1903. He was the son of Levi Hatheway, who served in the war of 1812. His mother's maiden name was Betsy Mather, a relative of Cotton Mather.

      When twelve years of age he moved to Ohio, traveling by canal boat over the Erie Canal and Lake Champlain.

      March 18, 1845, he was married to Eunice C. Prior, in Northhampton, Summit County, Ohio. To this union were born four sons and two daughters.

      In the year 1850 he drove over-land from Ohio to eastern Iowa, stopping on the way in the village of Chicago. He settled in Jackson County having previously purchased a Mexican soldier's land warrant and located on a hundred and sixty acres of government land which cost twelve and a half cents per acre. For thirty years he engaged in farming and nursery business. In the spring of 1880 he moved to Bennington, Ottawa County, Kansas, where he also engaged in farming until four years ago. His wife died October 4, 1899.

      There remains to mourn his loss four sons, Gurden A. of Magnet, Nebraska; George P. of Mitchell, SD; Ernan, of Manning, Iowa, and Dana G., of Bennington, Kansas.

      Early in life he joined the Methodist Episcopal Church and for more than fifty years he was an honored member, helping to bear its burdens and to build up its interests, serving as trustee steward, class leader and Sunday school superintendent. His home was always a stopping place for the itinerant Preacher.
