    Michael Hittle, farmer; P. O. Covington, born in Darke Co., Ohio, May 30,1842, is the son of Adam and Catharine (Fockler) Hittle, who were born and raised in Miami Co.; the grandfather, Nicholas Hittle, was probably born in Germany, and came to this country in an early day; the grandmother, Eve Anna (Boyer) Hittle, was probably born in Pennsylvania.

She lost her husband by death, June 1, 1874, since which, she has remained with her mother and brother Michael. Adam, the father, died about four years ago. Mr. Hittle, the subject of our sketch, has always followed farming ; he has never married, but seems to enjoy single blessedness. He lives at home with his mother and sister, and takes charge of the farm nearly his whole life, some thirty-eight years, has been spent in Miami Co., which should give him a right and title among the old settlers of this county.
