His first bill he submitted, sponsored, and was passed was the Virginia Cemetery Bill, which forbade any destruction and/or plowing them under of them!

He alone saved the Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris) from being becoming extinct when he was Chairman of Virginian Wildlife. Yes this is the Bird which the Country TURKEY attained that name. Tom, hen , and poults all.
Benjamin Franklin wanted this as our national Bird.

Since any message on Find A Grave shows up with my name I assumed you would know who sent the message. Your thoughts on naming conventions does make a point but your comment on John Witt's memorial is confusing to others who are not as well read as you. I have had others ask me what your point was. So I thought I would ask you.

The lack of any children named with Dutch names as was done by the other DeWitts in America at that time in the 1600s also suggests John Witt was not Dutch. Whether john Witt's ancestors came from Holland or elsewhere will probably not be determined unless we find some new DNA matches with people who have new information.

When I first submitted my DNA analysis I thought I descended from the Dutch DeWitts of great fame in NY. But the results sent me in a different direction when I found I was not even a somewhat close match. Later I found I matched other DeWitts and Witts who had documentation supporting their descendancy from John Witt.

So my wishful thinking had to face scientific results that disagreed.

And now we struggle with john Witt's heritage. My road block shifted from 1750s to the early 1600s.

Recently we found another fellow with the last name Lynch to who we match in a way that suggests we had a common ancestor about 700 years ago. The Lynch name also suggests a heritage that is not Dutch.

At this time there seems to be no scientific or historical proof that john Witt was of Dutch heritage.

But as I learned seven years data could turn our view of family history around a new curve. It is exciting to be able to use scientific information along with historical information to dig into the past.

Thanks for your thoughts

You recently requested that I add "Sr." to this memorial. Although I know he has a son named James, I have found to references to add Sr. to his site. Please provide the source for such an addition, and I will be happy to add Sr. and the source to the memorial.

Thanks for your fine research on your own family and your efforts to improve Find A Grave. I do not spend as much time here as I once did, but I still value the site and consider it a very important public source of information. Two suggestions that you made on memorials of my family I was unable to accept. The one where you gave place of birth and death, I will be more than happy to add if you have documentation. I do believe in accuracy in what is posted here and just because the family lived and were buried somewhere is not enough to speculate that this was where they were born or died. This family had property in more than one county in the West Midlands and beyond, so those were not a location to me to speculate.

The other is on the use of "Sr." While is is used by some today, it has never been a correct social custom. The first of a name is the only one at the birth as a child and has no suffix. A son with the same name is the one that is different by the use of Jr. This is confused further when someone born as the III takes Jr. after the death of his grandfather. Thanks again. Doc
