The bulk of the collection listed here was given by Hiss Carson's nieces to her nephew, Mr. Arthur Carson and his wife Muriel. The latter brought them to the Archives in December 1985. A conversation with Mrs. Carson leads us to believe that we are unlikely to discover other Hatch papers from Miss Bertha Carson's collection.
A large collection of papers that belonged to Harris Hatch and his son Harris H. Hatch is in the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick in Fredericton. Some legal papers of the second son, Wellington Hatch, a St. Andrews lawyer, are in the Stevenson collection in the Charlotte County Archives.
