    G. B. Hatfield, senior member of the sheet metal and plumbing firm of Hatfield & Scott, is one of the substantial business men of Troy, where he has been identified with commercial ventures of a successful nature for forty-six years. He was born at Troy, July 16, 1857, a son of Elias and Sarah (Lathan) Hatfield, being one of a family of nine children. The education of Mr. Hatfield was confined to attendance at the public schools of Troy, and after he had laid aside his school books he secured his first business experience in connection with a hardware enterprise. April 6, 1874, he entered the McKnight & Hatfield establishment, where he learned the plumbing business, until 1892, when he and his brother formed a partnership. In 1903 he formed a new connection with John G. Scott, the firm of Hatfield & Scott coming into existence at that time. In 1913 the hardware department of the business was sold and since then the partners have devoted themselves exclusively to the sheet metal and plumbing business. At the present time the firm is greatly enlarging its quarters by the addition of a commodious show room and two upper stories of their building, which will make this establishment a leader of its kind in this section. Mr. Hatfield is a practical business man of sound judgment and acumen. He is a constructive worker in movements making for civic progress and betterment, and during the war period joined other patriotic and public spirited citizens in making a success of the administration's movements. As a fraternalist, he is affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Knights of Pythias and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. He belongs to the Methodist church.
