From "A Hitch Orchard" compiled by Daisy Hitch Davies in 1931: Elizabeth Allen (Samson) was a widow and the sister of his brother Samuel's wife. Excerpt from letter written by Laurene Eliot Bunker of Wellesley Hills, MA., dated Oct. 22,1930: "Perhaps it would interest you to know that a cousin of mine has a bible which belonged to Elizabeth Allen who later married Elgate Hitch. Her name appears on the fly leaf in three different forms. First, as Elizabeth Samson of Nantucket; second, as Elizabeth Samson when she says she was the wife of Irsacher Samson and the wills of the birth of their sons Irsacher in 1768, just six weeks after his father's death at sea; and third, as Elizabeth Hitch."

Elizabeth married (?) Samson.

Elizabeth next married Elgate Hitch, son of Samuel Hitch and Rachel Hardy, on 04 Jan 1776 in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., MA. (Elgate Hitch was born in 1751 in Somerset Co., MD and died about 10 Oct 1838 in Fairhaven, Bristol Co., MA.)
