Notes for Noah Hitchcock
Hyde72 gives the date of death as 13 May 1790, a typo in the year. His gravestone has the following inscription:
"Mr. Noah Hitchcock, who died May 12, 1799 in the 84th year of his age."149

He was a cordwainer in addition to a farmer. This meant that he did custom shoe work. The term is derived from Cordova, the town in Spain which made special leather for ladies shoes151. His lapstone, with a carved date of 1757, his pincers and hammer, were preserved as family heirlooms among his descendants as of 1876. Jesse Hitchcock succeeded him in the cordwainer business.

Noah first built his frame house on the site later occupied by Lemuel Allen, but took it down and moved it into the village. He erected it on the site occupied by Pliny F. Spaulding in 1876. After the house was sold out of the Hitchcock family it was moved yet again, this time to a site north of the Hitchcock school, where it was occupied in 1876 by Lyman Webster.152

Noah Hitchcock built a new animal pound of stone, forty feet square in 1762 in the park opposite she house of George Hitchcock. But the town refused to pay for "what Mr. Hitchcock calls a pound." This annoyed him considerably, and he later, in 1775, presented his bill for 3 pounds 6 s. 8 d. with interest for twelve years153.
Notes for Mary (Spouse 1)
Hyde50 has her given name only.

She is buried adjacent to her husband, with the following inscription.
" Mrs. Mary Hitchcock, wife of Mr. Noah Hitchcock died June 10 1792 in the 81 yr. of her age."149
