1903 - 1983
MARGUERITE HIS WIFE
1910 - 1967
Hollis Hitchings, son of Arthur Treadwell Hitchings and Florence Etta Hoogerzeil, was born 23 January 1903 in Beverly, Massachusetts; married on 10 May 1931 in Plaistown, New Hampshire or Georgetown, Massachusetts (it was recorded in both places) to Marguerite Evelyn Seaver, daughter of Ralph Waldo West and Edna Collins Seaver. She was born 25 July 1910 in Georgetown, Massachusetts and died in July 1967 in Beverly, Massachusetts. She is a distant cousin to blogger Randy Seaver, since they are both descendants of the immigrant ancestors Robert Seaver and Elizabeth Ballard, who arrived in Boston, Massachusetts in 1634.
Hollis was my grandmother's, Gertrude Matilda (Hitchings) Allen, brother. He was one of 8 children. Uncle Hollis and Aunt Marguerite had eleven children!
In this photo of the Hitchings family, my grandmother is the baby on my great grandmother's lap. Hollis is the little boy with the toy dog in his lap. This photo was taken around 1905, the year my grandmother was born, and in those days little boys wore dresses until they were "breeched". Notice that my grand uncle Arthur Hitchings, who was born in 1897, is not wearing a dress.
