I have three Nathaniel Hitchens, but all were born in the 1800s, 1822 being the earliest. Nathaniel Hitchens married Sarah Elizabeth Bryan about 1845. Their graves are in Delmar,DE. The were my g-g-g-grandparents. His father was Levin Smith Hitchens (b. 1793-94), but I have run into two Levin Smith Hitchens, both living about the same time and you don't find much on mine. I think his wife was named Mary. I don't know anything about his brothers or sisters, if any. His father was Edmond Hitchens, but there are appearently three Edmond/Edmund Hitchens, all from about the same time period and I can't tie anyone to my line.
