Guymon Daily Herald, July 31, 1955, page 1.

Mrs. Henry C. Hitch, Guymon, will be the Texas County Pioneer Woman at the state celebration at Ponca City, September 16, Theo Yarbrough, county chairman announced Saturday.

Mrs. Hitch was selected by a committee named by Yarbrough.

At the Ponca City celebration which is combined with the Cherokee Strip annual run observation, a state Pioneer Woman will be selected. Each of the seventy-seven counties is nominating a typical pioneer woman for the event.

Mrs. Hitch came to this area in 1910 and has continuously resided here for the 45 years. Her father, a Kentuckian, had come to Barber county, Kansas, soon after the Civil War. He had engaged in buffalo hunting as a profession. Mrs. Hitch, whose maiden name was Walker, was living on her mother's farm north of Liberal Kansas, and was teaching a country school when she met Henry Hitch. They married in Liberal.

Mrs. Hitch fits the three prerequisites laid down by the state committee in that she is a pioneer mother and is active in the religious and civil affairs of the community, the Texas county committee decided.
