In Aug 1734, Elgate Hitch was appointed guardian to Rachell Price & Eve Price (both under age 14). (Ibid:181/182).

There is a land transaction dated Oct 13 1778 in Somerset County between John Read and Henry Handy where Read sells to Handy land that Crispin Price owned in his lifetime, a 300 acre tract called "Newberry" in "Rockawalkin near Mr. Waggaman's Mill." The record states further that Crispin Price died intestate and left two sons and three daughters. Both sons "died in their minority without issue" and their three sisters, daughters of said Crispin Price inherited "Newberry" which they held undivided until the oldest daughter Rachel Price intermarried with Obediah Read who then bought the other tow girls, Anne and Eve out. At the time, Anne was married to Alexander Thomas Russell and Eve to Levin Hitch. Further, Obediah Read died leaving John Read 2/3 and his wife Rachel her "thirds." Rachel then married Thomas Stanford and she is "now dead intestate." (SoLR-G:132)


Rachel Price is listed as under age 14 when she was assigned guardian Elgate Hitch in 1734.
