George "Goff" Hatfield is not the same as Abraham George Hatfield of the New Jersey Hatfields and descendant of Matthias Hatfield and husband of Margaret Winas or Winan.

For an excellent review of this issue see, "Disproof-Connection to Abraham Hatfield," posted 31 Mar 2006 by Don Pendell (at URL


George "Goff" Hatfield was born in Lee County, Virginia.

He married Martha "Marthy" Toms, daughter of Foster Toms, and known Quaker. (She was not daughter of John Logan, a chief of the Mingo people. See her profile for details.)

In other documents, George's wife was identified as Margaret LNU, born in Russell Co, VA, in 1720. [1]

They had the following children:

  1. Joseph (1739-1832);
  2. William (1740-?; married Nancy LNU, 1760);
  3. Jeremiah (1750-1832 in NC; married Fannie Holland);
  4. George "Goff" Jr. (1752 in VA-ca. 1810 in Lee Co, VA);
  5. John (1755 in VA-after 1850 in Marion Co, TN). (more specifically??) also adds Andrew (1745-?)

Comment from Linda at Millinnium3:

Records for Washington and Russell County, Virginia include a petition dated December 9, 1785 to the Virginia House of Delegates by sundry inhabitants of Clinch River, Moccasin Creek, Powell's Valley and others requesting that militia districts be redrawn such that these citizens will more easily perform militia duties without long travel away from their defenseless families. Among those signing are two George Hatfields (George, Sr., and his son, George, Jr.), his sons John and Ephraim, plus Eurious Smith, Ericus Smith and Eli Smith (all in-laws of Ephraim).[citation needed]

On Robert Doach's muster list of the Clinch River area.

Received land grant on Lewis Creek/Clinch River, Washington Co, VA, in 1786.

Botetourt Co, VA, tax list for 1771 lists George, Sr., and his sons George, Jr. and Jeremiah as tithables.

1786: land grant on Lewis Creek of Clinch River, Washington Co, VA.

On tax list for Lee Co, VA, in 1795.

Apparently, after settling his family in VA, George, Sr., returned to Perquimans Co, NC, (home of Martha Toms and his father, Richard, and brothers). There he made out a will dated 10 Feb 1774 in which he bequeaths small sums of money to his brothers William, Richard, John David, Jesse, and Benjamin. He also mentions Martha Toms and Foster Toms. Foster Toms, Sr. was the executor of the will.

Some believe that Abraham is not George's father and Margaret is not his mother nor is Margaret Winans is wife. Wife is rumored to be Mingo tribe.See discussion at for more info.

Difference in dates to be noted in the biography until a source can be added.

There's no provable connection between Joseph Hatfield (the Rev War vet) and this George Hatfield, though the claim has often been repeated. Family researchers have been working on this for at least 60 years, but nothing has been found. There's also no documentation to the idea that George's middle name was "Goff" -- or that he even had a middle name, which were not common in the early 18th century.
