Goolie Hitch was killed when he fell off a lumber working tram trying to catch a tool that was also falling. He died due to internal injuries, probably a ruptured spleen. He was his father's "right-hand man" and very dependable. (This information comes from his sister Anna Pearl Hitch Smith in a telephone conversation in February 1996).
The area where Goolie Hitch was buried in North Carolina was taken over by the government. His body was subsequently reinterred into a cemetery at the entrance to Camp Legeune, Onslow Co., NC. [Montford Point Federal Cemetery located off Highway 24 East, Jacksonville, Onslow Co., NC. Site location for removal of Caucasian graves from lands confiscated by Federal government to build Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base, ca. 1940.]
