Joseph* Hitch

  • Born: Abt 1745, Somerset Co., MD
  • Died: Abt 1772, Somerset Co., MD


*This connection is UNCERTAIN but fairly high probability at 85-90%. A Joseph Hitch Sr. and Joseph Hitch Jr. were mentioned in the will of Robert Hitch written October 1767. Benjamin Hitch was listed as next of kin with Joseph Hitch when Robert Hitch's estate was inventoried at a value of 25.0.11 between Apr 11 and Jun 23 1768. Executor of Robert Hitch's estate was Eve Hitch.

Joseph Hitch Sr. probably refers to the son of John Hitch of Adam. Joseph Hitch Jr. may have been a brother of Robert, hence this placement. Regardless, this Joseph Hitch is only mentioned twice in the records of Maryland after that point where he was a witness to the will of Thomas Humphries (2/19/1771) and William Stephens (12/18/1769-3/21/1771). This Joseph may have died soon after 1771 and is an uncertain son of Samuel Hitch. Joseph Hitch was also one of the appraisers of the inventory of John Tolbert of Worcester Co. on Aug 4 1766 where Robert Hitch "of Saml" was a creditor (WoI-1762/84:226,227)
