From "A Hitch Orchard": Elizabeth Hitch was left a widow with five children. After the death of her husband she made her home with her father and mother in Fairhaven, MA. She must also have lived in Pennsylvania for a time as two of her daughters, then young ladies, died there. I have seen a beautiful painting of her shown me by her grandson, Maurice Delano of Martha's Vineyard when I was making him and his family a visit. Her husband died at sea when his vessel, Barque Rajah, was wrecked in the "Ocotak Sea" (probably Okhotah). The compiler copied most of the dates for this family from gravestones in Riverside Cemetery, Fairhaven, MA.


Elizabeth married Ansel Nye Stuart on 22 Mar 1834 in New Bedford, Bristol Co., MA.1 2 (Ansel Nye Stuart was born in Oct 1809 in Sandwich, MA,1 7 died on 18 Oct 1858 in Fairhaven, Bristol Co., MA 1 and was buried about 21 Oct 1858 in Riverside Cemetery, Fairhaven, Bristol Co., MA.)
