bullet  Notes:

From "A Hitch Orchard," Daisy Hitch Davies, 1931: "Helen is a short, well built, black eyes and hair and pretty as a picture. She was a tiny baby when her parents died and her young life was not an easy one. She lived with first one brother or sister and then another. She planned to be a trained nurse from the time she was a small child and after graduating from high school at Harvey, IL, entered the Jackson Park Hospital, Chicago, IL to take a training for nursing. She stayed there about a year when her sweetheart of high school induced her to marry him. They are now as happy as can be in their home at Harvey, IL."

In the Federal Census of 1920, Helen Hitch is listed in the household of Elbert Ross in Pawnee County, Kansas as follows: - Laura Hitch, age 13, born in IN - Helen Hitch, age 9, born in IN.
