Hollis Witt DeWitt
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 22, 1792
Death: Jul. 30, 1853
Oxford
Worcester County
Massachusetts, USA

His parents were:

Benjamin Witt
1750 1818

Olivia Campbell
1767 1848

On Jun 12, 1829, Hollis and his brothers Alexander, Sterns and Archibald changed their last name from Witt to DeWitt. The date was after the death of their father so it is not clear if their father changed his last name too.


His first wife was Sarah Harris (1797-1840) who he married on Jan 9 1820 in Dudley, Mass. They shared in the creation of the following children:

Caroline Witt DeWitt {Fuller}
1820 1902
(See link below.)

Benjamin Alexander Witt DeWitt
1822 1881

William M T Witt DeWitt
1825 1902
(See link below.)

Mary B Witt DeWitt
1827

Charles H DeWitt
1831 1832
(See link below.)

In May 1843 he fell in his barn and was so injured that he never walked afterward.

Hollis married his second wife Mary Hawes on March 10 1842.
