Frederick Hatch

From Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia

Frederick Hatch[1] was a Episcopal minister in Charlottesville. He gave services in the county courthouse until an Episcopal church was built in 1824. Hatch ran a school where Jefferson's grandsons, Benjamin Franklin Randolph, Meriwether Lewis Randolph, and James Madison Randolph attended. Jefferson also donated money for a house for Mr. Hatch, and Martha Jefferson Randolph reportedly went to his services.[2] Hatch presided over Jefferson's funeral service.
