  Dates:   1833-1887  
The collection consists of the typed memoirs of the Hatton and Lovejoy families, titled Memoirs of My Mother and Her Family, and a carbon copy of these memoirs. The memoirs begin with the arrival of the Hatton family (compiler's great-grandfather) in Georgia on November 13, 1833, having moved family and slaves from the Newberry district, South Carolina, to Meriwether County, Georgia. Grandmother Mary Ann Hatton married Anderson Ray Lovejoy of Jasper County, Georgia, who became a licensed Methodist preacher in Meriwether County through the influence of distant kinsmen Lovick and George Foster Pierce. The family moved into Greenville, Georgia, from the county, then to Atlanta, Oxford, Clarkston, and Lovejoy's Crossing. There are many mentions of prominent people and events during the mid-nineteenth century. The memoirs conclude in 1887.
