    Notes 
    • My grandmother Drucilla was 40 year old and grandaddy was 66 years of age when my mother was born. Three years later they had a daughter Minnie, who lived only 3 months. My mother often told me she remembered her father only as an old man with a long white beard. His activity was limited to walking, usually a couple miles to the country store known as "Sam Barhams". It is still operating by Sam's grandson. Grandaddy would often take my mother with him, as she had no children to play with. While Grandaddy was at the store, he would buy himself a 5 cent jigger of whiskey from a wooden keg. According to my mother, enroute home her Dad would be quite talkative, especially bragging about how rich he was, always with the same remarks "Billy Hatch richest man in Prince George County". This disturbed my mother, for the next morning her Daddy would be just as quiet and poor as ever. Upon arrival home from the store he would ask "Tootlum",(his nick-name for my mother) to help pull his boots off, he would hold on to the mantle and do a jig on fireplace hearth before early retirement. My younger brother "Tommy" affectionately called our mother "Tootlum" daughter of Billy Hatch, richest man in Prince George, "By Golly", always asking "Tootlum" if she really didn't think her Dad, Billy Hatch, didn't have more than one drink when at the store.

      From Debbie Cruppenink :

      Drucilla's mother Sarah, left 250 acres in her will to Billy Hatch and it did not say anything about any monies.
      Have you heard about the story of Billy giving land to Ft. Lee and that there is a plaque in the ground at one of the gates?
      I have walked around at the two back gates and didn't see anything, do you know if this story is true?
