A copy of an article from a 1953 (perhaps September 27) newspaper from Chatsworth, Illinois was sent to me by William H. Hitch of Ben Hill Co., Georgia in December 1994. It goes as follows:

Looking Backward

Items Gleaned From The Plaindealers of Yesteryear ----------------- THIRTY YEARS AGO September 27, 1923

It is not often that three bro- thers, all of whom past 80 years of age and are still spry and in good health, are able to meet together and enjoy a re- union, yet that is what took place in Chatsworth on Wednesday. Sephen S. Hitch, aged 86, resides in Chatsworth and is one of the town's most liked citizens. Chas. Hitch, aged 84, is a resident of Fitzgerald, Georgia, an extensive land owner and landed in America from England three days before the civil war and about a year later he and Stephen volunteered their services for the United States and served in the Fourth Illinois Cavalry during the war. Robert, aged 82, resides in El Paso and is the only survivor of the organizers of El Paso's first bank. He, like the other two, is an honored citizen. All three of these gentlemen were together Wednesday in Chatsworth and spent the day at the S.S. Hitch home. (Note: all misspellings are left as printed.)
