Notes for JOEL HOAG:

Tama County, Iowa History Vol. I-1987

Beattey-Hoag Family

Sampson Beattey, our ancestor, emigrated from England in the late 1600's (or

his father may have come in 1621, as some believe). He settled in

Jamestown, Conanicut Island, and raised a family. One son was John. In

1797, John married Margaret Carr, daughter of Nicholas Carr of Jamestown.

Their children were Sampson, Nicholas, Dinah, Rebecca, William, John,

Margaret, Phebe, and Caleb, all born in Warwick, Rhode Island. In 1735

Nicholas married Hannah Davis, daughter of Robert Davis. They lived in

Warwick and had four sons, Benjamin, Robert, Nicholas and Sylvanus. In 1757

Benjamin Beattey married Mercy Davis, daughter of Urian and Sarah Davis.

Their children were Nicholas, Sarah, Jesse, Hannah, Joseph, Stephan, John.

They lived in Gloucester, Providence County, Rhode Island. In 1784 Nicholas

married Thankful Baker, daughter of John and Abagail Baker. They lived in

Uxbridge, Worcester County, Massachusetts. Their children were Lydia, Joel,

Ezra, Joanna, Benjamin, Joseph and Amos. In 1805 Lydia Beattey married

Elisha William Hoag, son of William and Esther Hoag. They lived in New

York, Eastern Pennsylvania, and Ohio. Their children were Hervey, Joel,

Joanna, James, Mary, Joseph and Hannah.

Joel Hoag, was born in Greenfield, Ulster County, New York, on July 14,

1809. He was the son of Elisha William and Lydia (Beattey) Hoag. His

father was born in New York State and mother in Massachusetts. Soon after

Joel's birth, the family moved to the eastern part of Pennsylvania and then

to Ohio. His parents were well educated and were teachers. He studied

himself and had a good education in English branches. He came from Atwater,

Ohio to Tama County in 1853. He bought a farm in the Grand View

neighborhood southeast of Tama in 1854. He boarded at Eureka, Helena or

possibly at the Walt Rich farm until he built a home on his farm. He

received mail from Eureka.

In the fall of 1856 he thought of marrying, but had misgivings, since he was

47 and crippled. His mother wrote, encouraging him. Joel had been crippled

since he was seven or eight from playing in a cold mountain stream where he

slipped. He got a "white swelling" in his leg, a sort of rheumatism, and

could not walk without a cane the rest of his life. In 1857 he married

Margaret Jane Beale, daughter of John and Jane (Davis) Beale. She was born

in Butler County, Pennsylvania, in 1826, came to Iowa with her parents in

1855, and lived in a three-cornered section across Richland Creek from the

Walter Rich home, west of Chelsea. The Hoag children were Benjamin, Lydia,

William, Mary, Theodore, Ira. Annie and Eleanor. Annie married August

Ehlers. They are Edna (Ehlers) Coleman's parents.

Robert Huhn lives on the farm Joel owned. Hoags lived there until their

deaths, she in 1900 at 73 years and he in 1902 at 92 years. Joel Hoag sold

tea to many neighbors, some living several miles away. He always walked and

could go quite fast, even though using a cane. He attended Quaker meetings

regularly at the Grandview school while his health permitted. Being a

Quaker, he left his hat on when he came in the house. He even ate with it

on.

PORTRAIT AND BIOGRAPHICAL ALBUM OF MUSCATINE COUNTY, IOWA-1889

William C. Batty, M. D., a prominent citizen of this county, residing on
section 19, Sweetland Township, was born in Addison County, Vt., Dec. 3,
1824, and there grew to manhood. Choosing medicine as his profession, he
entered the medical college at Worcester, Mass., being graduated from that
institution in the class of '48. After completing his studies he began
practicing in Monkton, Addison County, remaining there for seven years, but
in the spring of 1855 he left his native state and removed to Iowa, settling
in the northern part of Winneshiek County, where he continued the practice
of his profession for nineteen years. To him that county owes much of her
present prosperity. In the early days of his residence there, there was no
other physician in that part of the country, and he would often have to ride
forty miles to see a patient, driving home over the unfenced prairies by
night, guided only by the stars. He established the first post-office at
Hesper, and mail route connecting that place with Burr Oak, and served as
its Postmaster for fourteen years, at which time he resigned the position.
Although he did not enter the ranks during the late war the Union cause had
no more loyal advocate than Dr. Batty. He remained at home, and during the
four long years of that terrible struggle he cared for the families of the
soldiers, receiving no fee for his labors, not only leaving with the sick
the medicine to cure the disease, but a kind word or a little gift always
went with it. No truer friends can anywhere be found than those to whom the
doctor ministered when their husbands, fathers, brothers and sons were
fighting on the Southern battle-fields.

Leaving Winneshiek County after a residence of nineteen years, Dr. Batty
then went to Topeka, Kan., and there dealt in musical instruments for a
short time, but as the business was not a paying one he abandoned it and
removed with his family to Muscatine, Iowa in 1873. Residing in the city
until the fall of 1874, he then removed to his country residence in
Sweetland Township, the farm formerly owned by Albert Tebbets, where he has
since engaged in farming and also in the practice of medicine.

On the 17th of July, 1845, in Addison County, Vt., Dr. Batty was united in
marriage with Miss Louisa B., daughter of James and Ruth Chase, and to them
were born a family of seven children, though three are now deceased: William
E., the eldest, born Dec. 14, 1849, is engaged in teaching music in
Muscatine; James H., born May 28, 1852, who was a partner of his eldest
brother and one of the highly respected young men of the city, died July 19,
1887; Amos E. and Eddie C. died in Winneshiek County in childhood; Frank H.,
who is married and lives in Hodgeman County, Kan., is the owner of 400 acres
of land, and engages extensively in stockraising, and is pursuing the study
of medicine; Willard A., born Oct. 14, 1868, residing at home, is a graduate
of the Muscatine High School; and Grace L., who was born July 13, 1872, is
in attendance at the same school. On the 15th of January, 1880, Dr. Batty
was called upon to mourn the loss of his wife. She was a lady beloved by all
who knew her; her hopitality and kindness won her many friends; in her home
the weary ones found rest, and those in distress were comforted. The Doctor
was again married, Feb. 27, 1881, becoming the husband of Emma C. Pace,
daughter of M.P. Pace, one of the earliest settlers of Sweetland Township,
whose sketch appears on another page of this work. Two children have been
born of this union: Mary E.L., born Aug. 18, 1884, and Alice H., Nov. 21,
1887.

In his political sentiments Dr. Batty has always been a stanch supporter of
the Republican party, and is also strong in his support of the prohibitory
law. He has always taken an active part in temperance work, and was a member
of the organization known as the Washingtonian Temperance Men. In 1856, when
the Republicans nominated John C. Fremont as their candidate for President,
he took an active part in the canvass in Winneshiek County, and has ever
possessed a controlling influence in the community where he resides. Mrs.
Batty is his co-worker in behalf of the temperance cause, is a member of the
W. C. T. U., in which organization she is Local County and District
Superintendent of the Benedict Home work, and is one of the earnest
Christian workers of this section.

Dr. William C. Batty traces his ancestry back for upward of two centuries.
His paternal ancestors were from the northern part of England, and emigrated
to this country in Colonial days, probably late in the seventeenth or early
in the eighteenth century, as we find that the founder of the family in this
country, Samson Batty, settled in Jamestown on Connecticut Island, and one
of his sons was there married to Margaret Cass on the 15th of September,
1707. Nicholas Batty, the grandfather of our subject, was of the fifth
generation; he was born on the 29th of October, 1758, and died on the 23d of
February, 1847. He served as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He
afterward became a Quaker. On the 5th of February, 1784, he was united in
marriage with Miss Thankful Baker, who was of English descent. They were the
parents of seven children: Lydia, Joel, Ezra, Joanna, Benjamin, Joseph and
Amos, who was the father of William C. Amos was born on the 21st of
February, 1800. He was a prominent member of the Society of Friends and a
preacher for that denomination. He was united in marriage with Miss Ruth
Carpenter, a daughter of Stephen and Hannah Carpenter. Their children were
nine in number, five of whom are now living, three sons and two daughters:
Lydia is the wife of William F. Hoyt, of LaCrosse, Wis.; William C. is next
in order of birth; Lucy is the wife of Henry C. Morrison, and resides at Red
Bluff, Cal.; Zeno C. is a resident of Hesper, Iowa, and is a Quaker
preacher, and James H., also a resident of Hesper. Four children died in
Vermont. Amos Batty became a resident of Iowa in 1856, and settled in
Hesper, Winneshiek county, where he resided until his death, which occurred
Oct. 30, 1872, his wife having departed this life about four years
previously.

The maternal ancestors of our subject, the Carpenter family, are able to
trace their family genealogy back to Richard Carpenter, who lived about 1638
in Wales. His brother William Carpenter, amassed a very large fortune in
Wales. He was a ship chandler, and died intestate in 1700, at an advanced
age, and his will bears date of 1684. His estate was valued at 40,000,000
pounds sterling, which amount is in the Bank of England awaiting claimants.
The Carpenter family, of which Mrs. Batty, the mother of Dr. Batty, was a
member, are among the claimants for this vast estate, and they have
succeeded in tracing their heirship back to Richard, who is proved to be a
brother of a William Carpenter and supposed to be a son of Ezra, but they
have not established the fact that he was the William who left the large
estate.

This Carpenter family was established on this continent by three brothers,
Ephraim, Josiah and Timothy, who sailed from Bristol, England, for New York,
in the barque "Reindeer", in 1678, and settled on Long Island and bought an
extensive tract of land from the natives, at or near what is now Jerusalem
in Hempstead, Queens Co., N. Y.

Dr. Batty was in early life a Whig, but a short time previous to the
disruption of that party he became identified with the Free-Soil party, and
on the formation of the Republican party he became a member of that party,
and has acted with it since. The doctor while in Winneshiek County took the
census on two different occasions, and once in the township where he
resides. He has been a Justice of the Peace for six years. He is a member of
the Society of Friends, and is an earnest worker in Sabbath-school work,
being the Superintendent and a Bible Class teacher in the Friend's Church in
Sweetland Township.

HISTORY OF POTTAWATTAMIE COUNTY

H. Verner Battey, the well known and efficient clerk of the district court

of Pottawattamie county, Iowa, was born in Bureau county, Illinois, in 1862.

His father was a well known farmer in that vicinity and Mr. Battey was

reared to agricultural pursuits. His parents removed to Vernon county,

Missouri, in 1869, and settled there on a farm. They later took up their

home in Shelby county, Iowa, at the time when their son, H. Verner, was

fifteen, so that he received his education in the district schools of these

various counties.

During his summer vacations Mr. Battey gave his father whatever assistance

he could in the fields and after leaving school he devoted his entire time

to agriculture until he had attained his majority. He then felt it was time

for him to leave the parental roof and he took up his abode in Portsmouth,

Shelby county, removing two years later to Walnut, Pottawattamie county,

Iowa, where he bought a weekly republican paper and began his career as an

editor. As a lad he had always had a ready mind for public speaking and his

boyish compositions showed an unusual talent. He felt that the press must

maintain a high ideal because it is of necessity the leader of great

movements and the strongest educational force of today. This principle has

prevailed in all the work that Verner Battey has .done as a newspaper man.

He carried on this paper for ten years in a most pleasing way and so built

up the patronage of the Walnut Bureau that it was a leader in the community.

His language was always clear, simple and graceful and he led his readers

along through an argumentative path decked with literary allusions gained

from his wide reading. He was offered so good a price for the paper on which

he had spent so much time that he felt it was to his advantage to sell. In

consequence he removed to Harlan, Iowa, where he bought the Harlan American,

a weekly paper, which he put upon the same high basis that the Walnut Bureau
had enjoyed. He was editor two years

when he saw his opportunity of buying the Avoca Herald at Avoca, Iowa. He

consequently sold out at Harlan and continued for three years at Avoca.

Mr. Battey's political affiliations and work had brought him into prominence

and his talent had been recognized, so that he was appointed deputy clerk of

the district court in November, 1899--a position in which he served until

January, 1905, when he assumed the office of clerk of the district court of

Pottawattamie county, to which he had been chosen at the preceding election

and to which he was re-elected in the following year. He has always taken an

active interest in political measures and in movements which have made for

the improvement of the towns in which he has lived. For two terms he served

as mayor of Walnut, Iowa, and for two years as town recorder. Education has

always found in him a warm friend and he was an active and efficient

secretary of the school board of Walnut for seven years. The republican

party has honored him many times by making him a delegate to the county

conventions and to the ninth district congressional convention, as well as

several state conventions.

In 1884, at Portsmouth, Shelby county, Iowa, Mr. Battey was married to Lena

Hetterman, a daughter of Carl H. Betterman, deceased. This union has been

blessed with six children: Carl V., George Earl, Percy B., Lena, Bessie and

Herbert. The family are all members of the Episcopal church at Council

Bluffs, Iowa, and are active in its support.


Mr. Battey is a member of the Knights of Pythias, the Woodmen of the World,

the Modern Woodmen of America, and belongs to the following Masonic orders:

Mount Nebo lodge, No. 297, A. F. & A. M., of Avoca, Iowa; Rabboni chapter,

No. 85, R. A. M., of Avoca; Joppa council, No. 15, of Council Bluffs;

Ivanhoe commandery, No. 17, K. T., of Council Bluffs; and Harmony chapter of

the Eastern Star of the same city. He is past master of his lodge and past

high priest of his chapter. His efficiency in his present position as clerk

of the district court has been recognized by his election in 1907 to the

presidency of the Association of Clerks of the District Courts of Iowa. His

life has always been honorable and useful, actuated by unselfish motives,

prompted by patriotism and guided by truth and justice. He may rest assured

that the people of this county are not unmindful of his labors and his

devotion to their interests.
