bullet  Notes:

From "A Hitch Orchard," Daisy Hitch Davies, 1931: "Viola Spain Hitch was educated at Princeton, IN. She went to high school but did not graduate. She took care of her mother during her last illness of tuberculosis. After her parents died she went to live with Mr. and Mrs. C.H.Bell (Her brother Allen married into this family) and she lived with them until she married Elbert Ross. Not long after her marriage, Viola developed tuberculosis.

She and her husband moved to Colorado Springs, CO where she finally regained apparent full health and vigor. Some time later, she returned to southern Indiana and immediately her ailment returned. She rushed back to the mountains but too late as she soon passed away. She was a member of the Christian Church, Princeton, IN."
