George Hazlett
Giard Twp.

George Hazlett, one of the early settlers of Clayton County, was born in Ireland, Dec. 5, 1824. In 1849 he left his native country and emigrated to the United States. In 1850 took a trip across the plains to California, where he spent two years in the mines, then returned to Clayton County, where he purchased 200 acres of land. In 1853 he married Jane Whitaker, a native of Ireland. By this union there are seven children, viz.: Margie, Richard, William, Susan, Jane, Cora and George. Mr. Hazlett came to this county a poor man, but by industry and economy has accumulated a fine property and home. In politics he is a Republican, and is always found at his post. Mr. and Mrs. Hazlett are members of the Presbyterian church.
