*There is uncertainty surrounding this line. Much of the circumstantial evidence points to this man being Levin Hitch of Sussex County, DE. This compiler had originally surmised that this person was the same as Samuel Hitch, son of Robert. However, further investigation now makes me believe that this Levin is son of Levin Hitch born 1723. More information is required to confirm (or deny) this hypothesis but this connection seems more likely.

In the Federal Census of 1800, Levin Hitch is indicated in Sussex County, DE on page 383 in a household with one male under age 10, two males age 10-16, one male age 26-45, two females under age 10, one female age 16-26, one female age 26-45 and one slave.

On Sep 4 1801, Levin Hitch received a deed from William O'Neal. For 200, Hitch received a deed from O'Neal for 200 acres of land called "New Survey" patented to O'Neal on Jul 5 1799. (SxLR-AH31:153) On Apr 4 1802, Leven Hitch and Charles Wildy, "trustees of the Baptist Church in Little Creek Hundred" received a deed from Gillis Smith. The trustees received a deed from Smith for one acre of land "for the furtherence of the Gospel" near Marshall Smith's Grist Mill. (SxLR-AH:226)

An inventory of Levin Hitch's estate was begun by Nancy Hitch and William O'Neal on Jul 8 1803 in Sussex County, DE. An account was first presented on Sep 3 1803 for a total of 193.16.9. The final accounting was not completed until 1813 for a net amount of $289.20 of which $96.40 went to the widow's dower and $38.56 went to five (unfortunately unnamed) heirs. (SxPR). Payments from the estates totaled $262.16 and were paid as follows:
