Herschel H. Hatch

Herschel Harrison Hatch (February 17, 1837 - November 30, 1920) was a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Hatch was born in Bay County, 1868–1872, a member of the constitutional commission of Michigan in 1873, and a member of the tax commission in 1881.

He was a descendant of John Lothropp (also Lothrop or Lathrop, born Etton, Yorkshire, 1584; died 1653) was an English Anglican clergyman, who became a Congregationalist minister and emigrant to New England. He was the founder of Barnstable, Massachusetts.

His cousin, Jethro A. Hatch, was the first physician in Kentland, Indiana and a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Indiana's 10th congressional district.

Hatch was elected as a Republican to the 48th United States Congress, becoming the first to represent Michigan's 10th congressional district, and served from March 4, 1883 to March 4, 1885 in the U.S. House. Hatch declined to be a candidate for renomination in 1884 and resumed the practice of law.

Herschel H. Hatch moved to Detroit in 1895 and practiced law until 1910, when he retired. After ten years of retirement, he died in Detroit at the age of eighty-seven and is interred in Elm Lawn Cemetery of Bay City.
