Mother*Anna Corshick1
(Wife) 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.3,4,5,6
Birth*7 May 1888Bertha E. Stiles was born on 7 May 1888 in Lakeview, Logan County, Ohio.1
Marriage*19 March 1910She married, as his second wife, Eli E. Hitchens, son of James Hitchens and Margaret Rutledge, on 19 March 1910 in Auglaize County, Ohio.1
(Sister-in-Law) Census US 191020 April 1910Bertha E. Hitchens was enumerated with her husband and two children, who may have been her husband's stepchildren, on the 1910 census taken on 20 April 1910 in the household of her husband's brother and sister-in-law, Zella and William Hitchens, at 609 Cleveland Avenue, St. Marys, Auglaize County, Ohio. Bertha's husband, Eli E. Hitchens, was recorded as 46 years of age, although he was actually about age 51, and worked as a laborer for the Railroad. Bertha, 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.2

Mary Stiles1

(Housekeeper) Will25 August 1777Mary was named as a beneficiary in the will of Charles Vipont of Jamestown, County Dublin, dated 25 August 1777. She was identified as his housekeeper in Hampton Court, Middlesex, England, and her children, Philip Vipont, Anne Vipont and Jane Vipont were also named as beneficiaries.2
(Housekeeper) Deed Memorial4 April 1778A memorial was made of the last will and testament, bearing date the 25th of August 1777, of Charles Vipont, late of Jamestown, County Dublin, Esq., deceased.

Whereby the said Charles Vipont devised all his real estate and leasehold interest in the counties of Dublin and Cavan, and also all his real estate interest in Church Street and Francis Street in the city of Dublin unto his trustees, the Reverend Bigoe Henzell of the town of Drogheda, Graves Chamney and John Bayly, of the towns of Platin and Shrubs, Esq., respectively, and to the survivors and survivor of them, and to the heirs of such survivor, to the uses after mentioned.

That is to say, to pay to unto Mrs. Mary Stiles, his housekeeper in Hampton Court in the county of Middlesex, £150 yearly, payable half yearly, to commence from his death, and to Rachel Watson of Summerhill in the county of Dublin, widow, 20 guineas payable every half year to commence from the time of his death, and to apply a sufficient part of the issues and profits for the maintenance and education of Philip, the son of the said Mary Stiles, till he attains the age of 21 years. And upon his attaining the age of 21 years, and securing the payments of the aforesaid annuities, he directs his said trustees to convey all his said estates to the said Phillip and his heirs forever.

And if the said Phillip should die before he attains the age of 21 years, the said Charles Vipont directs his said trustees to convey the said real and freehold estates unto his kinsman the said Reverend Bigoe Henzell and his heirs forever, on his securing the payment of the aforesaid annuities.

And after devising several pecuniary legacies, he bequeathed all the residue of his real and personal estates unto the said Bigoe Henzell, Mary Stiles and William Faden of London, to be by them equally divided between Anne and Jane, the daughters of the said Mary Stiles, to be paid to them at their respective ages of 21 years or days of marriage which should first happen, and directed that a sufficient part of the interest and produce thereof might be applied for their maintenance and education, and if either said Anne and Jane should happen to die before marriage or age of 21 years, he directed her share _____ dying to be paid to the daughter of the said Bigoe Henzell.

And of his will, appointed said Bigoe Henzell, Mary Stiles and William Faden executors and guardians of the said Philip, Anne and Jane which said will was signed, sealed, published and declared by the said Charles Vipont in the presence of Gregory Byrne and James Archbold of the city of Dublin, merchants, and Matthew St. Leger, clerk to the said Gregory Byrne. The memorial was duly executed by the said Bigoe Henzell in the presence of, and is witnessed by, Christopher Abbott the younger and Clement Moore, both of the city of Dublin, gentlemen. Bigoe Henzell signed and sealed in the presence of Christopher Abbott Jr. and Clement Moore. The memorial was registered in Dublin on 4 April 1778.2
(Executor) Deed Memorial26 November 1779A memorial of an indented deed of agreement dated 26 November 1779 was made between Thomas Gerrard of Martry in the county of Meath, gentleman and William Gerrard, his only son, of the first part, Mary Stiles, one of the executors of the last will and testament of Charles Vipont, late of Jamestown in the county of Dublin, Esq., deceased, of the second part, Jane Vipont, spinster, of the third part, and Graves Chamney of Platin in the county of Meath, Esq., of the fourth part.

Reciting that a marriage was shortly to be had between the said William Gerrard and Jane Vipont, in consequence whereof the said William would become entitled to one undivided moiety of the real and personal estate of the said Charles Vipont devised to or in trust for the said Anne Vipont, sister of the said Jane. One moiety whereof was estimated to be of the value of £3,000 and upwards.

And further reciting that the said Thomas Gerrard was then seized, among others, of the lands of Corstown, Balrath and Liscartan, situate in the county of Meath, by virtue of three renewal leases for lives or terms for years subject to certain yearly rents, and was also possessed of, and entitled unto other personal estates and effects of very considerable value the whole whereof, except £500, was agreed should, upon his decease, descend to his said son, his executors and administrators, subject to an annuity of £100 to be paid to his wife during her life.

It was therefore by said articles agreed that the said Mary Stiles and Jane Vipont should convey the said Jane's moiety of the said estate and effects unto the said William Gerrard, his heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, and that the said Jane should have and be entitled unto one annuity or yearly sum of £200 for the term of her natural life, to commence from the first day of November or the first day of May which should next ensue after the death of the said William Gerrard. And in case the said annuity should not be secured to her satisfaction in three months after the death of the said William Gerrard, it should be lawful for the said Graves Chamney, his executors, administrators or assigns, to enter judgment and issue execution on a bond and warrant in the penalty of £6,000 therein, and thereby levy the sum of £2,000 therein mentioned out of the estate and effects of the said William Gerrard and pay the same unto the said Jane for her sole and separate use which should be in full satisfaction for said annuity, dower or thirds.

And it was thereby further agreed that in case the said Jane should die in the lifetime of her said intended husband leaving issue by him, one of more child or children, and should in the lifetime of such child or children, take to himself a second wife, then the said Graves Chamney, his executors or administrators, might thereupon, by virtue of said bond and warrant, levy and raise out of the estate and effects of the said William, £3,000 for the use of such child or children to be divided between such child or children, if more than one, at the times therein mentioned, with the provisos therein mentioned.

Joseph Stockbridge1

(Administrator) Administration15 November 1710Jonathan Pratt and Joseph Stockbridge were appointed Administrators of the estate of Jabez Pratt on 15 November 1710 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). The Letters of Administration document stated that Jabez, late of Duxbury, had died intestate and that the administrators were to prepare and provide an inventory of his estate to the Probate Court before 22 December. The inventory, valued at about £54.65s.23p had already been prepared, however, by Francis Barker and Ebenezer Sprout on the last day of October 1710, two weeks before administration was opened. The inventory identified books, wearing apparel, a horse, saddle and bridle, a pair of oxen, 3 cows, a swine, a yoke and chains and other tools for husbandry, hay and fodder, corn, salt, pewter, wooden vessels, 8 pounds of butter, iron vessels for housekeeping, chairs, a table, stools and lumber, a small pot, a debt from Joseph Stockbridge, a parcel of apple trees and a mention of 2 items at a Taunton estate. An additional note dated 15 Nov 1710, the same date the administrators were appointed, stated that Elizabeth Pratt, relict widow of the deceased, had refused to administer the estate. No mention of his and Elizabeth's children, all minors, was found in the probate documents.2
