Excerpt from letter by Mrs. Adda Oliphant George, Petersburg, IN. dated Nov. 5,1930 from the Daisy Hitch Davies papers, "Zachariah Hitch was a quiet man, kind always. He enjoyed mirth, however, in his quiet way. He was a Whig - later a strong Republican. His large family prevented his taking part in the Civil War - but the family aided the Union every way possible. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, but since his wife was a devout member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Denomination, he usually went with her."
