RE: Nancy Swaney DeWitt
Oh hi cousin... maybe.

Do you have any idea where your Dewitts came from?

I am running a Y chromosome DNA Project and we are trying to connect the many DeWitts.

On all I have been able to find about William Dewitt's family is the suggestion of parents John (1782 PA-?) and Mary (1796-?) with a brother Thomas E DeWitt (1836-)

My oldest known DeWitt is a John DeWitt too but he was born in 1758 probably in Mass but he was in PA in 1790 whereafter he floated down the Ohio to WV where he raised his family starting in 1807.

In our DNA project we have learned that my line descends from John Witt (1612-1675) who immigrated from England before 1650.
We know we are Witts but we do not know how we connect.

It is also interesting to learn that almost all of the descendants from John Witt changed their last name to DeWitt in the late 1700s and through the 1800s. So we are wannabe DeWitts whereas many of the other DeWitts around descend from the Kingston and Long Island DeWitts from Holland or some DeWitts who came to Virginia.

Obviously there are others but these are the oldest lines we have found.

So when I found your William, I always try to determine if he is one of my Witt/DeWitts or a regular DeWitt.

ha ha

So that is why I am poking around in this family of yours.

Any thoughts on your DeWitts?

RE: William Walker
You are very welcome. I photographed the whole cemetery today, and it looks like you did a lot of the documentation of the graves. I'm kind of filling in the blanks.

RE: horton family
I am a descendant of Thomas Horton (1640-1714) of Rehoboth, MA. Margaret Jenks and Frank Seymour published a good genealogy on this family.

What is your lineage?
