HATFIELD, WILLIAM R.Private
AgeWestover's Company

Hatfield was with Mexia at Tampico, and came to Westover's Company with Allen's men.

It appears from the files of the General Land Office that bounty, and donation certificates were issued by Commission of Claims to heirs of William Hatfield, he having "Fallen with Fannin."

Smith L. Havens was mustered into the service of Texas with Winn's Company on Dec. 23, 1835, but the LOMR notation opposite his name is "Left Jan. 10th."
