Louis Hyatt

I found a Civil War record for a Louis Hyatt who was a Private in Company 1 of the 1st Vermont Infantry. He became a prisoner of war at Savage Station. He also joined Company B of the 5th Vermont Infantry, and was part of Winfield Scott Hancock 1st A. C, and was promoted to a Corporal and then Captain. Based on his fighting units, it appears he fought at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, but this needs to be confirmed. I could not help but wonder about this man, what was it like to have been in the Civil War, to be a prisoner of war, who was his family, and was he a Malo. I decided to track this man.

What I found was that Louis was born in 1834 in Marieville, Québec.  His birth name was Louis Ayotte as shown in his birth record below.  His patents, according to this record were Louis Ayotte and Genevieve Harris (1815-1865). Louis’ marriage record to Genevieve gave his surname as Ayet dit Malo! I was then able to trace his family tree to Jean Hayet dit St Malo.



Louis Jr. married and divorced Mary Etta "Mariette" Seeley and they had the following children:

Genevieve Cynthia "Jennie" Hyatt 1870 – 1973
George Lewis Hyatt 1872 – 1949
Charles Frederick "Freddie" Hyatt 1874 – 1964

Helen Maud Hyatt 1877 – 1965


Genevieve Cynthia "Jennie" Hyatt 1870 – 1973

Besides Vermont, Louis also lived in New York and Minnesota. Louis died in Chatfield, Fillmore Co., Minnesota.
