The Late Capt. Hitchcock
Funeral Services Held Today at His Late Residence

Funeral services over the remains of Captain James H. Hitchcock were held this morning at the late residence of the deceased, 102 5th Street Northwest. There were a large number of friends and acquaintances present, and the services were conducted by Rev. E.B. Bailey of the Central Union Mission, assisted by Rev. Alexander Gibson, pastor of Waugh M.E. Church. The board of directors of the mission, of which Mr. Hitchcock was chairman, acted pallbearers. The interment was at Congressional cemetery.

Captain Hitchcock died at Potsdam, New York, his old home, on Monday last. The deceased was born in Vermont in
1834. He served in the Army during the late war and rose to the rank of Captain. The destruction of his property by fire led him to enter the service of the government more than twenty years ago. He was a member of the official board of the Waugh M.E. Church. Upon the organization of the Central Union Mission in 1884 he was elected a member of the board of directors to which position he was re-elected every year. He was active and energetic in the work of the mission. Appropriate action has been taken by the board and next Sunday evening a memorial service will be held in
the auditorium of the mission building.
