From "A Hitch Orchard" by Daisy Hitch Davies (1932):

"Nancy Hunter died about 3:30 A.M. Again records do not agree. One states she is the daughter of Matthew Hunter and Esther Hutchinson. Another from the old Bible that she is the daughter of Matthew Hunter who died Feb. 1, 1822 and Nancy Hunter who died Oct. 9, 1807.

William Winder Hitch removed from Laurens Co., Nov. 1860. He went to Mississippi. He was able to educate the children by his first wife but the Civil War and his death shortly afterward prevented his educating the last three children. He was probably named for some reason not known to the compiler for William Winder (1714-1792) who resided in Maryland and married September 22, 1743 - Esther Gillis (1726-1767)."
