HISTORY: Aunt Fern Sue Hittle HOLT. Aunt Fern was born 9 August 1896 in Prairie City, McDonough County, Illinois daughter of George A. Hittle (1868-1949) & Amanda E. Mitchell (1866-1954), In 1899 they moved to Wyoming from Prairie City, IL she was about 3 years old . The family settled on a ranch near the East Fork area south of Boulder, Wyoming. Fern was a beautiful striking tall women (I think she was 6 feet two) and a fantastic horseman. She looked so magnificent on a horse and she always rode the very finest horses. They say in her younger years she was quite a bronc rider. I know that Aunt Fern was an outdoors person and spent her time doing the chores and hated the inhouse stuff. (maybe that's where I got it from lol). In 1909 Fern with her brother Henry Attended the Silver Creek School, the next year they went to school in Boulder. She later went to school in Lander Wyoming and each week-end The Hittle Kids would ride their horses 50 miles home to East Fork (Boulder, Wyo) to feed the Cattle, then head back to be in school by Monday Morning. She also went to School at the University of Wyoming before she married uncle Pat in 1917. According to the Pinedale Roundup she killed a skunk in town and smelled up the whole Place. She was a telephone operator in Pinedale for Mr. Parish. Aunt Fern was also mentioned in the Pinedale Round up in 1925 as being a rider for the matched race at the 4th of July Rodeo. *Will finish writing another time. *FYI: They had two sons Carl and Earl. Carl E. (1918-2004) married Virginia Bahl, and Earl George (1922-2008) married Alice I. Roop. Alice Roop Holt once told me that her mother Zeda C. Sparks Roop (1906-1967) was one of your Jewell's best friend and was also a cousin, (soooo far I haven't figured out the cousin relationship yet). I laughted at my Aunt Fern one time when I stopped to see her just after her ninety birthday party and she was so upset, she couldn't figure out WHY they put those 90 candles on her cake, when she was only 87. The Age thing was never a very truthful thing in the Hittle family and she must of inheritied the gen from her Grandmother Hittle too. She was a terrible driver and oh my NO one wanted to ride with her she would be driving 90 on the roads in Montana and turn around and chat with the people in the back seat. Scared us all and it was a fight to see who could talk her out of driving. Well when she came to Pinedale I was elected Head Driver even before I had a driver license. She loved her Cats, Candy & Good Horse flesh. Hugs Patsy *Patsy Hittle Gore 1993- *revised 9/2005
