Settling in Atlanta, he entered the hardware business, in which he was very successful, accumulating a considerable fortune and establishing for himself a position of importance in the community. He married Miss Mariana Turner, one of the most beautiful and brilliant girls of Atlanta at that time. They had ?? children, who together with his wife survive him. The children are James Fitten, John Fitten, Jr. and Misses Elizabeth and ??ie Fitten.
