Lorenzo Hill Hatch was my great-great grandfather. He was an early pioneer of Lehi, Utah. He then helped found the town of Franklin, Idaho where he was elected to the Idaho Legislature. He was then called to serve a mission in northeastern Arizona. He helped found the town of Woodruff where his wife Catherine lived and the town of Taylor a few miles away where his wife Alice lived. All of his life he kept a journal. This is a transcription of those journals.
