    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. Per daughter Patti in letter dated 27 Sep 2010: "As far as my Dad my memories are vague. He died when he was 58 the day after Thanksgiving, I believe I was 14. Mom told me he was born in Des Moines, Iowa. He was in the Service. What Branch I don't know and was dishonorably discharged. Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary in Salt Lake City handled the services. I know he was in prison at the Point of the Mountain, but I don't know the years. You know I don't even know my grandmother and grandfather. Dad's whole name was George Eugene Hatten. Mom just didn't talk much about them."
