Never married. From "A Hitch Orchard", by Daisy Bell Hitch Davies (1932): >>Alice Hitch and her sister Lucy conducted a florist business on her father's farm. After the death of Lucy, Alice continued the business by herself. I called on her in the summer of 1930 and visited the old graveyard on her farm. I copied dates and took snap shots. She was a pleasant, self reliant and resourceful woman living all alone except for a small pet dog.<<
On November 20, 1888. Alice Hitch received a deed from Ezekiel & Sarepta Hitch for 64 acres of land called "Mcclenal". It is same land in Barren Creek District that Ezekiel purchased from Lemuel M. Mills "excepting that part" he sold to Stephen Mills. The land adjoins that of David Hearn and Davis Phillips. (Wicomico County Land Records, Liber FMS NO. 4, Folio 270).
On March 23, 1889, Alice Hitch sold 64 acres of land for $700 to John Hitch. The land was called "Mcclenal" and the same as that she purchased from Ezekiel Hitch on November 20, 1898.
