Wyatt Hittson, the first "Hittson" born in Tennessee
Father: Richard Hittson (1780-1826)
Mother: Drucella Stubblefield (1782-1850)
Sister: Sarah Hittson (1804-Unk) m. Lewis Wilburn Jr (murdered Richard Hittson 27 Oct 1826, Claiborne County, TN)

Brother: Berryman Hittson (1818-1908) m. Filly Ann Harpole, raised 4 sons, 3 daughters in Tennessee.

Wyatt married Martha Stubblefield in 1836 at age 28 in Coffee County, Tennessee. In early 1860, Wyatt and Martha moved their family to Carroll County, Arkansas. Three of their sons, Thomas Jefferson Hittson, William Richard Hittson, and Robert Loch Hittson followed their parents to Arkansas.

Wyatt sold his farmland in Tennessee and moved to Carroll County, Arkansas during the Civil War, a slave-free state with less conflict. He purchased 900 acres for farming and built the Osage Store building in Greenforest, Arkansas; "a familiar site in Osage is that of the historic "Stamps Store". Originally known as the Osage General Store, it was completed in 1868 by Wyatt Hittson after two years of construction. According to local historians, the two-and-a-half story building originally carried everything a resident might need, from the "cradle to the grave". This included a coffin room on the upper level, as well as rooms to rent."

He died at the age of 67 in 1875. Wyatt's and Martha's three sons sired the largest number of Hittson cousins to carry the name forward.
