Frederick Hatch

Frederick Hatch was an Episcopal minister in Charlottesville, Virginia. He gave services in the county courthouse until an Episcopal church was built in 1824. Hatch ran a school that Thomas Jefferson's grandsons, Benjamin Franklin Randolph, Meriwether Lewis Randolph, and James Madison Randolph attended. Jefferson himself donated money for a house for Mr. Hatch.1 Martha Jefferson Randolph reportedly went to Hatch's services.2

Frederick Hatch presided over Thomas Jefferson's funeral service.
