*This wife's maiden name was speculated based upon much circumstantial evidence. First and foremost, George Brown, in his will written on May 28 1788 and probated in Worcester County, Maryland on Jun 27 1788, listed among his daughters, Mary Hitch. Also, in that same will, various members of the Brown family were bequeathed land near and bordering that of Benjamin Hitch. In Sarah Brown's (George Brown's wife) will written on Mar 14 1792 and probated in Worcester County, Maryland on Nov 19 1796, it also mentions daughter Mary Hitch. The Denston family showed up prominently in this same will. Benjamin Hitch's son and daughter married Browns. Benjamin Hitch's grandson Washington Hitch married a Denston. The probability that Mary (Brown) Hitch, daughter of George Brown (c1717-1788), was wife of Benjamin is near certain.
This would be after the taking of the 1800 Federal Census and before Benjamin Hitch remarried in 1803.
Mary married Benjamin Hitch, son of Samuel Hitch and Rachel Hardy, about 1777 in MD. (Benjamin Hitch was born in 1738-1740 in Somerset Co., MD and died on 31 Mar 1814-19 Apr 1814 in Worcester Co., MD.)
