History of Bay County, Michigan, Augustus H. Gansser, 1905


Attorney-at-law, at Bay City, occupying convenient offices in Shearer Brothers' office building, was born in Perry County, Ohio, in 1866, and is a son of Dr. S. A. Hitchcock.

Dr. S. A. Hitchcock is a practicing physician at Elida, Ohio. His wife died when our subject was a small boy. Besides Charles W., there were one son and two daughters in the family, namely: F. A., manager of an oil company at Muncie, Ohio; Mrs. A. C. Pfeifer, of West Bay City, Michigan; and Mrs. W. F. Jolm, of Elida, Ohio.

Mr. Hitchcock was reared and secured his literary education in his native State. He took a law course at Valparaiso, Indiana, and was admitted to the bar of that State in 1895. In October, 1896, he was admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of Michigan and then located in West Bay City, entering into a law partnership, under the firm name of Walton & Hitchcock. The partnership continued for two years, or until Mr. Hitchcock moved to Bay City and established himself in his present quarters. His business is a general law practice, including private interests and chancery cases and on numerous occasions he has appeared before the Supreme Court. For six years he was county commissioner of schools, his term of office expiring July 1, 1902. As an educator he made many friends for himself when he first came to Bay City, in 1886. For some years prior to taking up the study of the law, he taught in the county and also in the city. He has never lost his deep interest in educational matters and has been more or less officially connected with the public school system for a number of years, until professional duties claimed his entire attention.

Mr. Hitchcock married Alice M. Foster, of Rollin, Michigan, and they have two interesting little children, -- Wright A., aged seven years, and Alice Dale, aged three years. The pleasant family home is located at No. 303 North Catherine street, West Bay City.

In politics, Mr. Hitchcock is identified with the Democratic party. Fraternally, he belongs to Wenona Lodge, No. 296, F. & A. M.; Othello Lodge, No. 116, Knights of Pythias; the Sons of Veterans; the I. O. F., and the Royal Arcanum. Mr. Hitchcock was reared in the Methodist Episcopalian Church and attends that church.
