My grandfather, John (Jack) sometimes middlename listed as Wisen and sometimes as Robinson) Hatter was born a slave in Virginia in 1853. He ended up in Western New York and is listed in the 1870 census as a sixteen year old living with and working for a McNall family in Frankinville. By 1880 he was working for a Thomas B. Titsworth. He also received help from a Foster Gleason. He attended Alfred University in the late 1870s and married Cynthia Emerson around 1881. Any information on my grandfather or any of the others mentioned would be greatly appreciated
