James E. Fitch

Letter from Fitch in March 12, 1918 St. Paul Enterprise
He lived in Washington State at the time of writing.
We need some basic biography for him. Can you help?

Searching at Chronincling America webpage from the Library of Congress you can find the following. I do not know if all quotations are related to your James E. Fitch, but he is living at Washington, D.C.

There are mentions of a James E. Fitch as a Real State and General Agent, Real State Broker and Auctioneer, related to several committees to help poor people, related to the organization of an Industrial Exposition at Washington in 1871, related to several building and lots transfer transactions, related to life insurance and fire insurance companies

There are many mentions of this James E. Fitch in these two newspapers... I can't afford searching all of them.

INTERESTING. There is an issue of the "Evening Star" (1902, October 14, p.12) in which you can find an article about a Bible Student's Convention held at Washington in which C.T. Russell was present (also other bible students as E.H. Thomson, A.E. Sarvis, M.T. Lewis, C.A. Owen, A.M. Graham). At the same page you can find several mentions of a James E. Fitch in an article related to give fuel to poor people (article title "FUEL FOR THE POOR"). One can think about a possible meeting between both men or a possible assistance of Mr. Fitch to this Bible Students convention ????

Thanks! Wrong Washington. Our Fitch lived in Prosser, Washington. Bruce has some details from Hazen family Interviews.

O.K. Sorry!!!!!

Nothing to be sorry for. I appreciate your help. Most don't even try to help. They come and take what they want, but make no attempt to further our research. Getting something wrong is part of serious research. It happens. So smile instead.

Do the Hazen family interviews link up in any way with the James Fitch of the photographs and Find a Grave?

Wow, 1918 sounds such an early date for our movement and some people had been in it for 36 years. A whole life.
