Note: My great-grandmother, Anna Clara (Hitch) Irwin was born 4 months later on December 26, 1882.  She always felt guilty that her older brother, Harry Samuel had died.  She stated many times that he would have survived if their mother was not pregnant with her and had enough suck or milk for him.  In her older years she kept Harry Samuel’s lamb head to his headstone in her cedar chest hoping one day to restore it. 

Another interesting note is that my younger brother, Jimmy Richard Irwin died 23 Mar 1964 and my younger sister, Karen Marie Irwin died 21 Jan 1967 are buried to the right of Harry Samuel’s gravesite.  There was empty John Wesley Hitch Family Cemetery Lots there that my parents, Lee Anton Irwin and Gracie Mae (Wagers) Irwin used for their burial plot.  Jimmy died at age of 6 months and Karen died at age of 17 months.
