Show Details Note: While I have not been able to get an exact pinpoint on Baton's birthday, I have been able to narrow it down based on the census records. It looks like Baton was born between Jan and June of 1793 since the 1870 Census lists his age as 78 and it was enumerated in July of 1870.

I've also been able to narrow down his parents. According to the census records for Pitt County ‎(North Carolina)‎, there are only 3 possibilities; Thomas, James, and John Hattaway.

Note: Originally, I thought that Baton's father was William Hattaway but the census records haven't shown that. According to the census records, there were only 2 boys under the age of 10 in his household which would have been Elisha and Irwin. Therefore, Baton had to have been from either James or Thomas Hattaway's house since they are the only other 2 that have children under the age of 10 during the census. Since Thomas is over 45 at the time of the census, I think that Baton's father was James.

Note: In the 1832 GA land lottery, Baton received a portion of land. As part of that, he was required to fill out an application that requested information such as residence and occupation. He listed his occupation as soldier ‎(Sol.)‎. While it doesn't specify which unit or if he was engaged in any wars, I was able to find from a library in Washington County which one he served with and when ‎(listed above)‎.

Note: Baton is listed as Balam but this could simply be a misspelling by the census taker. There are 2 males and 3 females. His occupation is listed as agriculture. The interesting fact about the 1820 census is that the census taker didn't typically include the head of household in the numbers and there is a male individual between the ages of 26 and 45 that shows up in the household. I think that person may be Irwin Hattaway since he shows up in the 1830 census and he had sold his parcel of landin NC in 1816.
Probate 1 May 1828 ‎(Age 35)‎ Warren County, GA


Note: Baton was named as the guardian of Nathan May's 2 youngest children, Samuel B and Pollie. An interesting side note to this is that there a few May's that are mentioned in the deeds and abstracts of Pitt County. It looks like a few of the May family moved down to Georgia with the Hattaway's.

Note: The original document lists the land location as Gilmer county but the county was divided into Pickens and Gilmer. The current land now resides in Pickens county. Baton officially received the land in 1836 and probably sold since his personal value in the 1850 census is listed as $1500. The parcels of land were 160 acres each and estimated to be worth between $480 and $800 ‎($3 - $5 per acre)‎ depending on the location.

Note: The 1830 Federal Census places Baton in Warren County but the 1840 Census places him in Washington County. Also, in the 1832 GA Land Lottery, he lists his residence in Warren County. He didn't take possession until 1838. So some time between 1838 and 1840, Baton moved to Washington County.

So it isn't known if Baton was a blacksmith in 1840 or when he began this trade until 1850. It does show from the 1840 census record that there were 15 individuals in the household but only 11 were employed in farming. It's reasonable to assume that Baton was a blacksmith at the time of this census.

Notes
Birth While I have not been able to get an exact pinpoint on Baton's birthday, I have been able to narrow it down based on the census records. It looks like Baton was born between Jan and June of 1793 since the 1870 Census lists his age as 78 and it was enumerated in July of 1870.

I've also been able to narrow down his parents. According to the census records for Pitt County ‎(North Carolina)‎, there are only 3 possibilities; Thomas, James, and John Hattaway.
Census Originally, I thought that Baton's father was William Hattaway but the census records haven't shown that. According to the census records, there were only 2 boys under the age of 10 in his household which would have been Elisha and Irwin. Therefore, Baton had to have been from either James or Thomas Hattaway's house since they are the only other 2 that have children under the age of 10 during the census. Since Thomas is over 45 at the time of the census, I think that Baton's father was James.
Emigration This date is based on the possible link to James Hattaway who sold his property in 1804 and never appears again in any Pitt County records after selling his property. There is a James Hataway who appears in the 1810 Census for Marion County, SC.
Military In the 1832 GA land lottery, Baton received a portion of land. As part of that, he was required to fill out an application that requested information such as residence and occupation. He listed his occupation as soldier ‎(Sol.)‎. While it doesn't specify which unit or if he was engaged in any wars, I was able to find from a library in Washington County which one he served with and when ‎(listed above)‎.
Marriage The date was originally estimated to be around 1810 but with the birth of their first son in 1817 and his participation in the war of 1812, I placed their marriage closer to 1815 or 1816.

Probate Baton was named as the guardian of Nathan May's 2 youngest children, Samuel B and Pollie. An interesting side note to this is that there a few May's that are mentioned in the deeds and abstracts of Pitt County. It looks like a few of the May family moved down to Georgia with the Hattaway's.

Baton officially received the land in 1836 and probably sold since his personal value in the 1850 census is listed as $1500. The parcels of land were 160 acres each and estimated to be worth between $480 and $800 ‎($3 - $5 per acre)‎ depending on the location.
