Darius Prewitt
Just Starting
My grandfather was John W. Prewitt and grandmother was Allie Hyche Prewitt. They lived in the Northport area. I've heard about the Prewitt Slave Cemetary but little else outside of that it exist. I've also heard that we have living White relatives that are still there. Can anyone help me out with this?

I just did the DNA test through and I'm very curious about the results. By the way, I was stationed in Germany for two years and met three German people, not related to each other, along with 1 Brit, and was told that our last name should be pronounced PRE (as in before) Witt (as in witty). I also met a French couple with the name who told me that it should be Preux but was changed to Pruitt and sometimes Prewitt by people who left France for Wales and America. Not sure if this is true or how I could prove it without documentation from both places from someone who did it.

Prewitt and Taylor
Sometime ago, our family lineages were somehow linked. I was wondering how much information you might have on a James Taylor (SR.) and his wifes family Hall.

My research shows Prewitts married to Taylors. The branch I am investigating ended up in Chicago Ill.

Thank you !

Sgt Kelly Johnson
Mr. Prewitt,

I served with Sgt Johnson Kelly and I noticed that you posted something on the site here in regards to him.

I will never forget the day he died...I was supposed to be with him and the rest of them when the accident happened. We were both in 324FSB, he lived in the room right next to mine and he was my squad leader.

I don't exactly know why I'm sending this email. I've had Kelly on my mind for many years now.

J H Barber
Hi J.D.,

J H Barber is my great grandfather. I visited the cemetery around 2006. My family still own some of the land there. I was told that we were related to the Prewitte's. My grandfather was Harvey Mills and my grandmother was Ada Barber Mills-she is buried at the Holly springs cemetery. I'm sure might be related. My dad Willie Mills and I did the DNA test with 23andme as well. Hope to chat with you soon.

Malissa Pruitt 1906(1910) -1976
Question for J.D. Prewitt

My grandmother's name is Malissa Pruitt (From Northport, AL). I can't locate any info on her parents and the earliest info I can find is the 1920 Census and she's living with her best friend's family (Sanders). You are very knowledgeable about the Prewitt/Pruitt family and was wondering if you could email me so I can give you more info, if you don't mind.

Her Grave info

Debra Wheatley
Baby Girl Steins
I am Debra Freeman Wheatley and in my Freeman Family Cemetery in Echola, Alabama it lists a child Baby Girl Steins b. May 13, 1941, d. May 13, 1941. When I clicked her link it shows Prewitt Stines and Dora Norris Stines as her parents. Siblings, James C. Stines, Nadine Stines Walker and Velma Stines Belk.

There are several unmarked graves in the Freeman Cemetery in Echola and I am curious if you could pinpoint where this child is buried? We have put up markers for a few of my relatives, but are unsure of other graves inside the fence area and some outside. There are at least four graves inside the fence that might be children and we are trying to find out who these are.

Any help would be appreciated.

JD, posted two photos for both of your family members. The area photo is basically of the general area with the section sign. Hope that fits your request. If not, let me know and I will make it back out and get closer; it might be hard since the marker is so flat.
