Alexander Hatch San Miguel County, New Mexico

Alexander Hatch was also an early settler. Dr. Stephen Boyce, a Canadian by birth, engaged in practice at Las Vegas about 1850, but soon embarked in trade and abandoned his profession. He married Mrs. Helen Hatch Streeter, a daughter of Alexander Hatch. After his death she married D. W. McCormick, a well-known pioneer of Trinidad, Colorado. Mr. Hatch came from New York State about 1849, and for several years had a farm at Chaperito, about thirty miles south of Las Vegas. One of his daughters married E. F. Mitchell, and another a Mr. McClure, who was connected with the quartermaster's department of Kearny's army.
