Oops, I meant to also add the similar information for Hitz

Surname       Canton       Community       Citizenship obtained       Place of origin
Hitz       GR       Breil/Brigels       b       
Hitz       GR       Chur       a       
Hitz       GR       Churwalden       a       
Hitz       GR       Davos       a       
Hitz       GR       Klosters       a       
Hitz       GR       Malans       a       
Hitz       GR       Parpan       a       
Hitz       GR       Pontresina       1919       (Klosters GR)
Hitz       GR       Saas       a       
Hitz       GR       Seewis im Prättigau       a       
Hitz       GR       Tavetsch       a       

Legend: a = before 1800; b = in 19th century; c = in 20th century.

The grouping of the towns is very similar, with Hitz occurring over a slightly larger area. The two surnames are both present in Saas and in Seewis im Prättigau, so I would look there first, but the distances are small in all of these cases.
