FRANCIS M. HATLER, Ohio County, was born September 26, 1848, in Warren County, Ky., and in childhood removed with his parents to Ohio County, where he has since resided. At the age of fourteen he enlisted in Company H, Twelfth Kentucky Cavalry, and was mustered out at the end of six months on account of his minority. In 1863, he re-enlisted in the Thirty-fifth Mounted Infantry and served one year. His father, Berry Hatler, was drowned in Green River in 1852. Berry's wife, Desdemona, daughter of John Minard, died in 1875, near Richland, Spencer Co., Ind. Their children are Lethia E. (Davis) and Francis M.  December 5, 1869, Francis M. married Susan C., daughter of James B. and Mary E. (Hampton) London, of Ohio County; she was born January 3, 1851, and to them have been born James M., William W., Jessie E., Mary E., Annie and Nannie (twins and very much alike), Joseph, Lulie A., and Henry C. By industry and frugality, Mr. Hatler has acquired a competency, owning 185 acres of well-improved land, in good state of cultivation. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and is also identified with the Democratic party.
