Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree at Ancestry for about four years. My primary interest is the Hewitt Family of the German line.

Originally, the family name in Germany was spelled "Hojeth" (R.M. Bell). The first Hewitt, Ludwig Huyett (FAGM# 60361928), of the German origin was born in America -- 7 Jan 1739 in Philadelphia (likely Germantown) to Frantz Carl and Mary Hojeth.

The Hojeth name was eventually anglicized to "Hewitt". Throughout history the name has been Hojeth/Hughett/Huiet/Huyat/Huyet/Huyett/Huyette/Huet/Heuitt/Hewit/Hewitt.

Other families of interest is Kistler, Brown, Ammon, Bailey, Simon, Dustman, Mahnenschmidt, and Smallsreed.

Each person in our tree is precious, but it would be tragic to learn of their life, their loves, their tragedies, their joys and sorrows, and accomplishments as examples of "living stones" (1 Peter 2:5) without first acknowledging and responding to God's purpose for our lives.

This song reminds us that Death is not final.

"Death In His Grave"

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys
To hell on that day
First born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave

So three days in darkness slept
The morning sun of righteousness
But rose to shame the throws of death
And overturn his rule
Now daughters and the sons of men
Would not pay their dues again
The debt of blood they owed was rent
When the day rolled anew. (John Mark McMillan)

A headstone in a lonely cemetery on a wintry bleak cold day is God's billboard of grace to us. A reminder that death is inevitable but yet His grace abounds.

That little dash in that stone measures God's time he has given to each man and woman -- a measure of grace. The dash is like a cross beam with the birth date where Jesus's right wrist was pierced and his left hand pierced at the death date. Alpha and Omega. Beginning and the End.

The free gift of eternal life is available to all those who trust the ministry, suffering, death and resurrection of his son, Jesus the Christ. Only believe..and by His righteousness we leave "death in his grave" and enter Heaven.

"For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him" (John 3:17).

RE: Ann Cunningham
What an interesting story. I'm sure it was tough on the family and to lose a child also.

So far, I found this happened twice in my family. It is surprising when you find information like this.

I hope you are able to find more information for J.T.
I have transferred Ann to you. Let me know as you do your research if there are any others that I maintain that you may want.

Thank you for sending the links to add information to this memorial. I have also added her maiden name and full death date. If Ann is a part of your family let me know and I will transfer her memorial.

Have a nice day,

Good Evening,

My wife, Terrissa, is a gg granddaughter of Daniel and Hannah L. (Hewitt) Bailey through the line of Cyrus Emmanuel and Caroline Etta (Brobst) Bailey, and their son and his wife, Chauncey Llewellyn and Clara Maud (Wehr) Bailey.

While searching her family line on we came across your reference regarding an early photograph of Cyrus E. Bailey stating that the original picture was from Hazel Hewitt's collection. We would like to ask if you know of any additional photographs from that collection of other members of the Bailey/Hewitt/Kistler/Brobst family. We do have a family portait of Cyrus and his family which appear to have been taken about 1900. The picture you posted appears to have been taken about 1880.

We were also wondering about Daniel's 1863 death during the Civil War. My wife and I have search for several years but never have been able to find any Civil War records about his enlistment, death, or a pension for his wife. So I was hoping you might be able to help.

With warmest regards,
Hal Armstrong

I found the obits for Clarence & Josephine and nothing else. I went to 1920's and did not find any of his other wives.

I did find an obit for an Infant named Barbara Sullinger in 1939.

How do I get the obits to you..

Hi, Mountainbiker, sorry, I have not answered you, been very busy. I am sorry that I do not now that area. I am so glad you are working on the family. It sounds like you live very close to these cemeteries. I live in Missouri, I'm so grateful for the people that work so hard on these Memorials, I started findagrave to help link my family together, and so happy to hear from all my family members. Wish I can help you more. But I think you now more than me at this time.

Sorry I really can't help you here with these questions. My grandparents are buried in that cemetery and so I drive around and take pictures of headstones and just add a memorial for them.
Also I transfer all these memorial just to another graver. So please ask for a transfer for these and any other memorials..
Next time I get to the Warren Library, I'll see if I can find anything on them.

It seems very likely except for his mother's maiden name.
