Our Pruitt/Prewitt family reunion in Tuscaloosa Alabama. We had a great time getting to know our family and branches from Tuscaloosa Alabama, Chicago, Dallas Texas, Tulsa Oklahoma, Oklahoma City and California. We had the opportunity to exchange family history, photos and visit the Old Prewitt Slave Cemetery where many of my ancestors are buried. It was an amazing, awe-inspiring experience to stand in the one place on earth which contains their mortal remains and to see important pieces of their life perhaps carved into stone. We are a family running 8+ generations strong and reunions are the anchor to our past, present and future.

During our family reunion we had the opportunity to visit other cemeteries; where our ancestors our buried, and add them to find a grave with photos of their headstones: Ebenezer Cemetery, Cedar Oaks Cemetery, Pole Bridge Cemetery. Holly Springs Cemetery, Greenwood Cemetery, Oak Ridge and several others.

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.

Of course. I'm always happy to have a memorial go where it will be cared for.

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 !

Mr. Raymond Prewitt

I'm here today for the dedication of the Abraham Lincoln statue at ALNC and I noticed the picture request that you had for Mr. Raymond Prewitt. Someone else claimed however since I was here I took care of it.

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.
