Memorial of the Loyalist Families of William Moore, Josiah Hitchings & Robert Livingstone by Moore 1898: The Family of Josiah Hitchings lived in New Boston NH, first child was born in Lynn, the second in Malden, and the third and fourth in Newburyport. /P/ Of the Hitchings family, I cannot speak of Josiah, who died before my time. David & Robert were men of large, stalwart proportions, and of decisive, resolute presence. John was of average stature, self-reliant, and firm in action and manner. William rather exceeded the average stature, and with a bilious temperament, as the phrenologists would say, of decidedly marked features and complexion, with black, curly hair. He was noted among his fellows for his impetuous manner and speech, -- something of the outlaw -- the catheran. /P/ Uncle David, as they called him, with his large proportions, his kindly, genial, though rather heavy features, his peculiar laugh and vocal intonation, and his words when talking seeming as though picked up by his rather heavy upper lip, was an occasional visitor at grandfather's. On these occasions there would be a field day; all neighborly and brotherly and gossipy greetings and exchanges. The fatted goose, turkey, or chicken, as the case might be, was laid on the table, from which it was taken section by section, duly discussed and disposed of. The great fire-place would be filled high, and then some one would switch Uncle David off on to the war of 1812 or of the Revolution, and battles would be lost and won, Burgoyne (he called him Burgwine), or Lee or Washington would be discussed from the standpoint of a genuine, original loyalist, and history would be edited if not rectified. /P/ Robert Hitching's business connections seem to have been large on the Schodiac [St. Croix], as the river was familiarly called. He was largely engaged at Union Mills, and his old mansion, roomy and square, like the owner, was prominent, though located on a side street. Ten well-born and well-bred sons and daughters came to maturity, and yet, with the exception of Stephen, no family or family connections have sprung from apparently favorable source.
