From the Laurel State Register - 1932
CAN YOU FURNISH THIS INFORMATION
April 15, 1932
I am trying to trace the genealogy of my great grand-father George Hitchens who was born near Laurel about 1775 to 1780, and who went to Chillicothe, Ohio, prior to 1805. If there are any of the Hitchens family still living in that vicinty who might possibly know something about this branch of the family will you be kind enough to hand this letter to him with the request that he communicate with me?
