bullet  General Notes:

Information on this line was gleaned from a pleasant meeting this compiler had with descendants of Henrietta Hitch (later Washburn) on Aug 29 2001. In attendance were Eunicelee (Washburn) (Johnson) Hupke and Van Hitch. Eunicelee descends from Henrietta through her marriage to William H. Washburn in 1874 (as granddaughter). Van descends from Henrietta through her daughter Delina Hitch who was born to Henrietta before her marriage to Washburn. Eunicelee particularly remembered "Linie" Hitch being a half-sister to her father Levin Henry Washburn - both offspring of Henrietta Hitch. As you can imagine, this line was a "stumper" to this compiler for a long time before it was finally solved at this meeting!

In the 1860 Federal Census for Nutters District, Worcester County, Maryland, Henrietta Hitch is listed as a daughter of Washington Hitch as "Hennie" Hitch, no doubt named for her grandmother Henrietta or Hennie (Brown) Hitch.

Also, in the 1860 Federal Census, Henrietta Hitch is indicated in household 543 in the Princess Anne District, Somerset County with the Price family as follows: Henrietta Hitch, age 20, housekeeper; John Price, age 63; Ellen Price, age 50; George Price, age 20; Amelia Price, age 14; James Price, age 11; all were born in MD. (Duplicate listins were not uncommon as the census taking was performed over many months and by different enumerating people).

Henny (Hitch) Washbord (sic) was named in the Apr 14 1883 land transaction where, for $100, Samuel and wife Hetty A. Hitch, William H. and wife Henny Washbord, and Mary M. Hitch sold to Levin T. Hitch 75 acres of land in the 7th Election District called "Heath's Venture" and "Buck Harbor". This was the land that Washington Hitch owned at his death and on which Matilda M. Hitch "now lives". (WoLR-ITM9:574). She is named as wife of William H. Washburn on his death certificate.
