RE: Explanation please
Dear Don DeWitt,

Hi Garden State neighbor!

I as you too have a name, always show it.

Simple answer to your question is:

Names are changed in spelling with so many variables.
...

Longer answer now:

As you wrote/posted"New England Witt origins. It casts doubt on a Holland origin because there were no Dutch speaking Witts in early New England, so the suggestion is that the Witts came from England. Also it is admitted that Dewitts from Holland perhaps went to England and dropped the De, or that the Witts were simply Witts which is derived from White.'

Read the Nonsuch Treaty yet? As i have found this is the only place after Normandy which was English soil.

My kin was involved a few ways in that. Both on the continent and the Isles of the UK too.

De as you well know is meaning the House of/ Family.
Napolean was the one which forced Naming Coventions and acceptances of Names to/from the common man/families.

On my mention of (in my English) King Richard, the Lion Hearted, my kin was with him and his Grandfather, William the Conqueror too.

In the Crusades have you read of J. De Mallie (it is spelled in a few ways/variations, depending which books, eh) he was the last Crusader standing and fighting for Christianity and he was with King Richard ..you know Richard was born in England , spoke little English as he was over on the Mainland Europe mostly at home in Normandy..etc..

I saw we may have a few lines... of ...kinlinkages ..

Asking on your Harvey's more.

Look at Cecil County, Md. for you.


Now a FYI. Did you know the first Female of English decent born in the Americas? Yes most do know it was/is Virginia Dare.Dare County, North Carolina is from that family.

The first Male was/is Babie Harvie/Harvey, he was born in A.D. 1584.



Are you kin to the family of ex DeWitt S&L Bank?



Hope this helps youall.

Please add me as your friend. On Find a Grave as well too now.

Regards,

Jonathan Robert De Mallie

RE: Brooks photos
I have added Louis M Brooks who appears to be Elmer's son. You can delete it and added it again or I can transfer it to you. Their mother Flora is down one row at the foot of Elmer's grave. I have added her photo plus a distant shot that shows where they are in relation to each other.

RE: R Shaver
Not really. I had plugged the name "Rynert Shaver" (with various spellings) into the search engine at Ancestry.com, and this memorial popped up. And I thought it was great that you had documented information about the proximity of this grave to its neighbors, and the other names involved. Thanks for the work you're doing!

RE: Booth
I cannot find a marker for his wife. I'm wondering if she is buried next to him and the information for her is on the back of his stone. As you can see, it has weathered greatly. The other three sides are very rough and more weathered and her markings could be gone forever.

I'm now looking at the burial map for the cemetery. The original rectangle purchases are in plots of 8. #113 was purchased by Minnie Booth. A couple named Shatto bought 2 of her 8 on one end. That leaves six: N. Harry Porter, Dora Porter, Minnie Booth, Durward Booth, Hartley Porter, and Thomas Porter which have stones that are very visible.

#104, which goes directly down the line, was purchased by George Booth and there are 8 plots. Stones that are visible say: George, Margaret, and Edith Booth, Lola Mae Christy, John, infant son, Neatis, and Doris Booth. That would make 8, unless the infant didn't use a full plot and John's wife is buried there.

I hope I helped a little.

David Cooper and Nancy Dewitt

The above two are my great grandparents. I just received a request from Ann Justice ( a distant cousin) for their genealogies. I have nothing but the essential dates for them, and no records of their parentage. Do you have records for them? I told Ann I would see what I could find...

Appreciate any help you can offer...
