Born in Muskingum County on 20 January 1854, he would have been 75 years old had he lived ten days longer.

Eli E. Hitchens1,2

b. 21 February 1859, d. 5 January 1926
Father*James Hitchens1,3,4 b. 1828
Mother*Margaret Rutledge1,3,5 b. 1833
(Son) Name SpellingsThe Hitchens/Hitchen family's surname found in our research, during the earlier years, was usually spelled Hitchens, then in the later years was more often spelled Hitchen.6,1,7,8
Birth*21 February 1859Eli E. Hitchens was born on 21 February 1859 in Rockford, Mercer County, Ohio.1,9,10
(Son) Census US 18805 June 1880Eli was enumerated on the 1880 census taken on 5 June 1880 in the household of his parents in St. Marys, Auglaize County, Ohio. He was single, 21 years old, worked as a laborer, and was recorded as disabled.1
Marriage*25 February 1892He married first Anna Oakley on 25 February 1892 in Auglaize County, Ohio.11,3
Marriage*19 March 1910He married second, as her first husband, Bertha E. Stiles, daughter of John Stiles and Anna Corshick, on 19 March 1910 in Auglaize County, Ohio.9
(Brother) Census US 191020 April 1910Eli E. was enumerated with his wife and two children, or possibly stepchildren, on the 1910 census taken on 20 April 1910 in the household of his brother and sister-in-law, Zella and William Hitchens, at 609 Cleveland Avenue, St. Marys, Auglaize County, Ohio. Eli was recorded as 46 years of age, although he was actually about age 51, and worked as a laborer for the Railroad. His wife, [Sister-in-law], was 22 years of age. They reported they had been married for zero years, his second marriage and her first, and that Bertha had given birth to two children, both of whom were living. The two young children included with the younger couple were enumerated as Virgil E. and Cecil G. Hitchens, ages 24 months and zero months old, respectively. They were identified as nephews of William and Zella, so we wonder if they were the children of Eli and Bertha, even though they were born before the couple's marriage. We suspect they were at least Bertha's children because she was reported on the census to have given birth to two children, both of whom were living. We've not been able to find any records, after this 1910 census, for Bertha, or for Virgil and Cecil.12
Marriage*18 September 1911He married third, as her third husband, Dodie Morehead, daughter of Augustine George Meehan and Barbara Lock, on 18 September 1911 in Auglaize County, Ohio.10,3
Census US 1920*7 January 1920Dodie J. and Eli E. Hitchens were enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 7 January 1920 at 224 South Pear, St. Marys, Auglaize County, Ohio. Eli was 61 years of age and worked for wages as a laborer in a boxboard company, and Dodie was 51 years of age and did not work outside their home. They rented their house, and were both able to read and write.2
Death*5 January 1926He died on 5 January 1926 in St. Marys, Auglaize County, Ohio, at age 663
Burial* and was buried in Elm Grove Cemetery, St. Marys.3

(Son) Census US 18805 June 1880William was enumerated with his wife on the 1880 census taken on 5 June 1880 in the household of his parents in St. Marys, Auglaize County, Ohio. He was 24 years of age, worked as a laborer, and had been unemployed for 5 months during the census year. His wife, Sarah S., was 28 years of age and had no occupation recorded. They both were able to read and write.2

They rented their house, and their number of years married was not recorded, although it was reported as William's third, and Zella's second marriage. We know that Zella had given birth to at least two children, although no number of births or living children was reported for her. William's brother, Eli E.

Eli was recorded as 46 years of age, although he was actually about age 51, and worked as a laborer for the Railroad. His wife, Bertha E. Hitchens, was 22 years of age.

The two young children included with the younger couple were enumerated as Virgil E. and Cecil G. Hitchens, ages 24 months and zero months old, respectively. They were identified as nephews of William and Zella, so we wonder if they were the children of Eli and Bertha, even though they were born before the couple's marriage. We suspect they were at least Bertha's children because she was reported on the census to have given birth to two children, both of whom were living. We've not been able to find any records, after this 1910 census, for Bertha, or for Virgil and Cecil.10

Born in Muskingum County on 20 January 1854, he would have been 75 years old had he lived ten days longer. He was survived by five children: Charles, Fred and Walter, at home; Clara of Columbus; and Mrs. Ella Wilcox of Cleveland; and also by a stepson, Edward Houtz.11
