From an undated (prob. about June 5, 1915) South Carolina newspaper clipping sent to me by Michael Givens, a descendant, of Beaufort, SC, there is the obituary of J.J. Hitch. It states: "J.J. Hitch died at 4 o'clock Monday afternoon, after a long illness. He was 68 years of age. Mr. Hitch was born 5 miles northeast of Fountain Inn, and had lived his life in this neighborhood. He was one of those few men of whom it may truthfully be said: 'Everybody loved or respected him.' He had long been referred to as one of the best men in the country. The funeral service was held at the residence at 2 o'clock, conducted by Dr. J.D. Pitts. The deacons of the Baptist church were pall bearers. Mr. Hitch is survived by his widow, who was formerly a Miss Garrett, and by four children: Dr. Y.M. Hitch of Hodges, Mrs. J.W. Givens, Mrs. S.C. Fulmer and Mrs. D.E. West, the latter of widow. During the war between the sections, Mr. Hitch offered his services but was refused. he weighed only 65 pounds."
