We know that Matilda Hitch was still living on April 14, 1883, when, for $100, Samuel and wife Hetty A. Hitch, William H. and wife Henny Washbord, and Mary M. Hitch sold to Levin T. Hitch 75 acres of land in the 7th Election District called "Heath's Venture" and "Buck Harbor". This was indicated as the lands that Washington Hitch "owned at his death and on which Matilda M. Hitch now lives." (WoLR-ITM9:574). NOTE - This was also the land that was devised to Henrietta (Brown) Hitch by her grandfather.

Matilda M. Hitch had died by October 1884 when, in the Worcester County Orphans Court records there is a listing, "Matilda M. Hitch (deceased) by William Fooks - will exhibited." (WoOCP) This compiler has not found such a will to date. Note - this William Fooks is probably the father of Warren Durand Fooks who married Mary Estelle (Molly) Hitch.
