By 1901 this composite map shows that there are four properties indicated for Merti Hatfield and one for her husband, John Hatfield in Hamilton Township of Gratiot County Michigan. The apparent homestead of Hason Sinclair, Merti Hatfield's father, is now one section west of where it was in 1889.
The property indicated in 1889 Elba Township for Samuel Hatfield is no longer owned by him. This would be the period when Samuel Ryan Hatfield and his family were in White County, Indiana, as indicated by the 1900 Federal Census for West Point, White County Indiana.
