He was described as being a farmer and wagon maker, age 18, weighing 140 pounds, and havng dark complexion, hazel/blue eyes and dark hair.

     Did any part of Lincoln County become Muhlenberg County? A 'Walter' and 'William' DeWitt both are granted lands in the Virginia Grants 1782- 1792 -- Walter (100 acres bk 1, p. 413, date survey 3-4-1783, county Lincoln, watercourse Sugar Cr; 200 acres bk. 5, p. 57, date survey 5-8-1781, county Lincoln watercourse Br Dix River; 400 acres bk. 5, p. 58, date survey 5-9-1781, county Lincoln watercourse Boons Mill Cr; 550 acres bk. 15, p. 231, date survey 4-26-1786, county Lincoln, S. Fk. Ky River); William (200 acres bk. 1, p. 416, date survey 3-4-1783, county Lincoln, watercourse Ky R.) between 1782 and 1792. William French DeWitt was census 1790 in 1790 at South Carolina; A Century of Population Growth 1790-1900, from the first census of the US to the 12th, 1790-1900 (Bureau of Census, Dept of Commerce & Labor, Washington Gov Printing Office 1909), p. 237 - 'The spelling variants for DeWitt are De Witt, Dewett, Dewhit, Dewight, Dewit, De Wite, Dewitt, Duet, Duett, Duewit, in the 1790 census.' In 1790 census there were 3 Dewitt families in CT, 1 in RI, 45 in NY, 12 in PA, 1 in MD, 2 in VA, and 15 in SC. There were 79 heads of families with a total of 387 family members listed in 1790 census. Average family size 5.9 A number of DeWitt families seem to be intermingled, and not sure how to sort them out. From Abstract of Goodspeed - Mississippi, Gillis, 1962 'The Dutch people named DeWitt who settled in New York state mid-1600's were from Sjirck Classen DeWitt of Grootland, Zunderlanet and Barbara Andriessen, Amsterdam, his wife. They married into families of Bogardus, Clinton and Ten Eychen to name a few. So far I have found towns, counties and rivers named 'DeWitt' to be named for DeWitt Clinton as was the town of DeWitt, Arkansas. I have never found any indication that the Dutch people ever spelled the name any way except DeWitt. I do find evidence of DeWhitt being an English name even before the Norman conquest. But, I cannot find DeWhitt in American records. I am sure that many of the DeWitts in official records and indexes are actually DeWhits but it is almost impossible to know which. These DeWitts are listed as being in the Revolution -- Lt. John DeWitt of NY 1752-1808; Ens. John A. DeWitt of NY 1753-1818; John A. DeWitt of NY 1750-1836; Q.M. John A. DeWitt of NY, so there must have been a number of families by the time of the Revolution -- Patsy R. DeWitt. He was born in July 1793 at South Carolina; SC according to 1880 census A.W. DeWitt; TN acc to 1880 census James Andrew; biography of Nancy's husband John McCrery (written about 30 years after Nancy's death) says that her parents were "William and Nancy (McQuorter) De White, of Scotch descent, natives of Virginia, and who first immigrated to Macon County, TN, thence to Simpson County, KY. William De White was a soldier of 1812; was in the battle of New Orleans. By occupation he was a farmer and brick-mason." Another (as yet unknown) source says b KY
----------
Here are the evidence bits that point to a 1793 birth for William DeWitt
     Samuel DeWitt was born July 13 1792 in South Carolina, according to the inscription on Samuel DeWitt’s stone (www.findagrave.com)
     William DeWitt is listed as “17” in the May 1810 Order Book of Logan County (if this is the same William DeWitt). That would peg him as born 1793.
     If the 1810 census of “William Duet” in Hopkinsville, Christian County, is “our” William DeWitt, he is listed as 16-26, living as the only member of his household. That would put his birth from 1784 to 1794.
     If the 1820 census of “William Dewhitt” in Greenville Township, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky is “our” William DeWitt, he is listed as 16-26, living with a woman 16-26. That would put his birth from 1794 to 1804. Being off a year or two on the early censuses is fairly common.
     In the 1830 census of “William Dewitt” (Tompkinsville, Monroe County, Kentucky) he is listed as 30-39, born 1791-1800.
     In the 1840 census of “Will Dewhitt” (Monroe County, Kentucky) he is listed as 1 male 40-49, born 1791-1800.

     I think the preponderance of the evidence points to a birth date of 1793, probably the last half of the year (assuming the two births are 12-18 months apart). If he were born in July 1793, then he would have been “almost” 17 in May 1810 (he would turn 17 July 1810). He would be 27 in August 1820, the day he was actually enumerated, but only 26 if he gave his birth as of June 1820 (the official date of enumeration).

     An alternative is that Samuel’s mother died after Samuel was born, and the new bride brought an infant son into the marriage. That would allow both Samuel and William to be born circa July 1792. That would make Samuel 17 in May 1810 (the order book date) and 27 in 1820. As we have no information about the two being “step brothers” I continue to believe we should consider a birth date of c Jul 1793 until further evidence is discovered.

He was Brickmason.1 He IN the Kentucky soldiers in the War of 1812 (put out by Kentucky Legislature in 1969; at Dartmouth), on p. 283 there is a William Dewitt, Private, Capt Almy McLean's Kentucky militia. History of Muhlenburg County, KY (Otta A. Rothert, 1913; Harvard Widener Library US24303), p. 64, 'On the roll of Capt. Almy McLean's company, the Kentucky detached militia, commanded by Lt. Col. William Mitchussen, there was a Private William DeWitt, enlisted Nov 20, 1814, and was engaged until May 20, 1815, took part in Battle of N Orleans Jan 8, 1815.' Book contains no McWhorters, no other DeWitts. He married Nancy McWHORTER at Muhlenburg County, Kentucky, say 1815.3 As of 1819, William French DeWitt was also known as William Dewhitt.4 He and William Marcus Dewitt She has in her possession a Bible, given to her by her grandmother Laura DeWitt; the Bible has the name "William DeWhitt" with the date 1819 written in it; she stated that her sister Veva received another old Bible in more dilapadated conditon, without a cover, that also has the name "William DeWitt" and the date that is about three years earlier than 1819. These Bibles were displayed by Laura DeWitt at the Christian Church in Visalia, CA, as examples of old Bikbles that had been in her family. Vera Feaver's Bibvle still contains a small note written in Laura DeWitt's handwriting. Laura DeWitt said her father was the only one of the brothers not a ministFer, all her uncles were ministers. Vera Feaver states that there was an old DeWitt family Bible that came down through the family and while in the possession of the widow of one of the DeWitt's it was put up for auction and sold. She stated that Laura DeWitt had been working in Newman IL as a school teacher for 30-35 deollars a month plus board when she met Isaac Shirk. in 1819.4 William French DeWitt Vera Feaver Shirk has Simpson Co KY 1820 p. 309, William Dewett, 1 male under 5, 1 5-10, 2 20 under 30; 2 females under 5, 1 15-20, 1 20-30. Instead of being in Muhlenberg County KY in 1820, could Wm and Nancy be in household of Henry McWhorter? See Henry McWhorter notes, 1820 Smith County SC census. Another county? I find neither a p. 309 nor a William DeWett in Simpson County (Gary Rolph after looking at 24 pages in ancestry.com of Simpson County 1820 Genealogy; March 2003). Nor does Dorothy Steers, Simpson County KY archivist, who wrote, "In 1975 our Simpson County Historical Society published "Simpson County, Kentucky Records" which included the1820 census (and the 1830) which I had
abstracted. (It also includes cemetery headstones, Bible records and Rev.
War Pension Records). I have just gone through the "D" section of the index of that book and find no DeWett/DeWitt or any other surname which could have been misread for it.
I have the 1820 Kentucky Census Index. There is a William DeWhitt in
Muchlenburg Co. The other entries are spelled DeWitt; there are no listing
for any with that surname in our area (Simpson, Warren, Allen).

In our 1850 census (my abstract of this has them in Hh 332 & 348): In

A great part of that time he was a faithful and able advocate of the doctrine of the NT. His health became bad some two years before his death, so much so, that he could not labor at home or abroad, but very little; but his zeal for the Lord and his truth never abated. He bore his affliction with great patience and resignation. I visited him in June but a short time before his departure, about which he spoke with much apparent expectation [?] to himself and comfort to his friends -- exhorting Christians to live humble and faithful [----?] sinners [---?] repent and turn to God and one thing will here remain that his children who had come to a mature age had all joined the church but one. . .on the 29th of June death fastened his iron grasp upon him. . . say to his wife, children and grandchildren. . .he died at his own residence in Simpson County, KY.

     Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: _UID F824C646DD16AB43981C09656988E4171723. Christina Barringer was born in 1817 at Union County, Illinois; 43 1860 census.2 She was 10 children.1 She married Michael Dillow at Union County, Illinois, on 10 November 1836.3 Her married name was Dillow.4 Christina Barringer lived; Ill.1 She and Thomas Chavis Thomas was married and had a number of children by his wife. Thomas was a neighbor of Christina and Michael. This was evidently an 'affair' without marriage or living together. Ewen was raised in his mother's household. Jacob Tripp, who complained to the Pension Board about a pension being given to Michael Dillow, wrote in 1901, 'I remember passing Michael Dillow's house one time before the Civil War and seeing his wife's negro son Sandy there. It made an impression on my mind as that was about the first time I had ever seen a negro. Michael Dillow did not seem to care anythign about his wife Christena giving birth to a couple of negro sons. Thre was an old free negro named Cain and generally called 'Old Negro Cain' who was said to have been the father of Sandy Dillow. The other negro was named Ewen. I believe an old negro named Shavus was said to be his father. Ewen wasn't so dark as Sandy, who is black, but anybody could see that Ewen was part Negro. Ewen died four or five years ago, but Sandy Dillow still lives at Pullman, IL and works in the Pullman shops. The reason the white sons all left home so young was that they were ashamed of their negro brothers.'

Jacob's will names his brothers and sisters as being Michael, John, Mary, Susan and Catherine. .The Jacob Dillow who purchased town property in Salisbury on August 31, 1809 made his will on March 8, 1822. "I, Jacob Dillow, of the town of Salisbury in Rowan County and State of NC (house carpenter) being of sound and perfect mind and memory, do make this my last will & testament as follows to wit-- I give to my wife Catherine Dillow all my estate real & personal during her life or widowhood but at her marriage or death, the whole of my estate to be sold, real & personal, and then to be divided as follows-- I will and bequeath one hundred dollars to Addison Allen Blackwell, son of Benjamin Blackwell--I give & bequeath to my sister Mary Dillow's two children Michael & Amy one hundred dollars and the balance of my estate to be divided equally between all my Brothers and Sisters (viz) Michael, John, Mary and Susan and Catherine. It is further my will that my wife have the use of all my Estate during her life or widowhood but is not to sell any of my real estate, nor make any unnecessary (sic) use of my personal estate but to live on it decently -- I also give & bequeath to Christy Blackwell, daughter of Benjamin Blackwell fifty dollars-- Lastly, I request my Executor to be hereafter mentioned to sell my tools on credit of three months -- I appoint my friend & factor Stephen S. Ferrand sole executor to this my last will & testament and do authorize & direct him to collect all debts due and owing to me, so soon after my death as possible and to pay all the just debts that I owe-- then my Executor to sell as much of my propery real and personal as will satisfy the debts-- and I do hereby authorize & request my Executor to Execute every part of this my last will & testament. In Witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 8th day March 1822-- Signed in the presence of Frank Earnhart (initialed) Jacob Dillow SEAL his x mark John Shuman (initialed).2 He died between 1823 and 1840 at North Carolina; "After being named in the 8 Mar 1822 will of his uncle Jacob Dillow, no further trace of Michael has been located.

He farmed but also served as Presbyterian minister, school director, and township treasurer. Michael said he always tried to follow advice he had received when in training for the ministry, 'never to tell he was a minister for the sake of saving a bill.' He ministerd to several congregations but most of his ministerial work as done on Friends Creek. Matilda and dau Alice were executors of Michael's estate, which then consisted of 190 acres of land valued at $12,000, and personal property worth $2500. Michael's will stipulated that Matilda was to have all rents and profits of the estate until her death, after which time the property was to be sold and distributed to the heirs. On Jan 19, 1899, a number of horses and hogs, along with hay, grain, wagons, harness, farm implements, and tools were sold at auction. On Oct 10, 1907 Matilda purchased property in the town of Cerro Gordo and lived there until her death. Her daughters Alice and Fannie were living with her in 1900 and 1910. After Dec., 1910, a conservator was named to manage her affairs.'

Samuel DeWitt1

M, b. circa 1750, d. circa 1797
     Samuel DeWitt was born circa 1750 at Virginia.1 As of between 1765 and 1790, Samuel DeWitt was also known as unknown Duette. He Re DeWitt's Corners: SC A Short History 1520-1948 by Wallace - p. 193-194 - 'Trade with the Creeks early made the path from Charles Town, about opposite where Augusta later rose, an important route, while the growing Cherokee trade a little later gradually developed the trading path that was to begun the great Hiway skirting the southwestern side of the Santee-Congaree-Saluda, through Ninety-Six and Dewitt's corners and onto Fort Prince George on the Keowee River. A fork running north through Camden reach the Catawbas while the path from the Lower Cherokees to the Catawbas and onto Virginia parallel the routes that the main lines of the southern railway and the Seaboard Airline were to follow afterward. Dewitt's [sometimes called Duett's] Corners] was about six miles northwest of the present Due West, a corruption of the name, on the road to Keowee. Highway Historic Marker near campus of Erskine College - 'Due West, SC. As early as 1765 the site six miles NW known to the Indians as Yellow River, where the Keowee path crossed the Cherokee line, was called Dewitt's Corner. In 1777 a treaty between SC and the Cherokee Indians was signed there. The present town was first called Due West Corner. Here in 1839 Erskine College, the state's first four year church college, was founded by the Associated Reformed Presbyterian Church.' History of Due West found at the Edgefield Historical Society (but this history known for many errors) - 'The small and unusually named little town in which Erskine College is located played an important role in the early history of the state of SC. Soon after the English settled Charleston [sic], traders started branching out and as a result established trade relations with the Cherokee Indians. These trade routes took them from Charleston to Georgia, NC, and TN. One of the main routes led from SC major port to Keowee, a Cherokee Indian village in what is known Okonee County. The English traders would leave Charleston with various objects like guns, mirrors, cutting tools, trading these to the Indians for animal skins. The skins, in turn, were sold to shoe craftsmen back in Charleston, since there was no manufacturing of such items in tose days. The route running from Charleston to the Indian territory was known as the Great SC Interior Trade Route. As more people migrated to SC, the land covering this trade route up to the Piedmont section became more populated. The settlers started killing the animals for food. As the Cherokees depended upon the fur and skin trade as a means of livelihood, this sparked a war betweent he whites and Indians in 1759 which was finally put down with help from England. The Indians asked for peace and a boundary was fixed between the Cherokee Indian nation and SC, almost to the point where the Abbeville and Anderson County lines are now. At the point where the trading paths crossed, almost on the boundary, a French trader named Du Wett established a trading post. He made his settlement near the banks of the stream which is now named Little River. During the Revolutionary War, the Cherokee Indians sided with the British. In 1777, at the site of Du Wett's settlement, the Indians were forced to sign a treaty with the state of SC, in which they surrendered the area which is now Okoneee, Pickens, Greenvilee, and Anderson Counties to the state. Du Wett and his family disappeared from the settlement, but when the area was resettled a short time later by the Scotch Irish, at a site six miles southeast of the original settlement, they attempted to retain the original name. Thus the settlement came to be called Dewitt's Corner or Due West Corner, corruptions of the name 'Du Wett.' Road marker located beside the Due West AR Presbyterian Church. from same article -- the original family to have settled in what is now Due West, when the town was resettled after the disappearance of the Indian trading post known as Dewitts or Duwetts corners, seems to have been the Lindseys. A member of that family, james Lindsay 1802-1854, was an outstanding builder and contractor who constructed the first Erskine building and had the college chapel named for him. present Due West located in Abbeville County. The Abbeville County court house burned after the Civil War and records were lost and what is available must be found from other sources. TN The Volunteer State, John Trotwood Moore, ed (1923) Vl. IV (found at Dartmouth). After the Indians were defeated, there towns burned crops and provisions destroyed two separate treaties were made one att Dewitt's corners between the Indians and commissioners from SC and GA; the other at Ft Henry nr Long Island in the Holston River between the Indians and NC and VA commissioners.
between 1765 and 1790 at Due West, Abbeville County, South Carolina.1 As of between 1765 and 1790, Samuel DeWitt was also known as unknown Du Wett. As of 1774, Samuel DeWitt was also known as Samuel D Witt. He 1775 - SC Historical and Genealogical Magazine, Vl1, (1900) p. 184-185 - The first council of Safety of the Revolutionary Party - 'We The Subscribers Whose Names Are here Under Writen [sic] do Volluntarely [sic] list & In roll [sic] Our Selves In A Valanteer [sic] Company of Horse to be Commanded by Capt.

Signed by 49 names, including Samuel D Witt, William Williams, John James, James Allen. Jean has photocopy of article page. Samuel D Witt evidently signed his name, as others had an X by name. In footnote, says that James Allen and John James were two of four names scratched out.
In SC A Short History 1520-1948, by David Duncan Wallace (U of SC Press, 1966; c 1951 UNC Press). 'In 1767 the parish of St. Marks included a third of the province consisting of everything northwest of Williamsburg between the Great Peedee and the Santee-Congaree-Saluda. . .Though we contribute to the support of the government,' said a 1767 petition, 'we do not share the benefits enjoyed by our fellow-provincials. We are practically denied trial by our peers, as few persons north of the Santee are on the jury list.' 'The failure to divide the back country into parishes we conceive to be due to the selfish interests of those in and near Charles Town, who seek to have everything centered there, to our absence was largely due the voting of 60,000 pounds for an exchange for the merchants and a ballroom for the ladies of CharlesTown, while nearly 60,000 back settlers have not a minister nor church, as if we were not worth the thought of, or deemed as savages or not as Christians!' (from petition signed by 4,000 men and supported by Rev. Charles Woodmaison). The suggestions include that 'circuit or county courts as in neighboring provinces subordinate courts in each parish consisting of justices and freeholders; provincial laws to be digested into a code and printed; the interior and upper parts of the Province, all beyond the Black River, to be laid out in parishes and churches or parsonages to be founded among them, public schools to be founded in the back settlements, the lines of all parishes to be run to the Cherokee boundary, 'that we may no longer wander in the maize of supposition.' p. 223 of same book, 'On February 27, 1766, the commons read a. . .petition for redress of grievances sent from the people of Congarees, Ninety Six, Broad, and Saluda Rivers, and 'places adjacent' praying for relief from paying the same taxes per acre as paid by the richest farmland and relief also from the lack of commonest government services and any representation in the assembly. . .' Colonial America microfiche (1600-1819) from LDS. 1779. As of 1785, Samuel DeWitt was also known as Samuel DeWit. As of 1785, Samuel DeWitt was also known as Samuel DeWhit. Dewit, Samuel, is in 96 District of SC 1785 - Dewit, Samuel, in the Darlington County, SC 1784-1788 Plat Books A-B Lower Parts of Old Ninety Six District (Edgefield Geneal Soc) Samuel DeWhit, Book A, p. 190, 200 acres on Cowhead Creek 4 Jan 1785 'below the ancient boundary line,' waters of Stevens Creek (registered on same day as Archibald Hamilton). Book A, p. 213 James Wakefield got 640 acres on Snow Creek 26 Jan 1785, 'above the ancient boundary line on the ___ waters of ____ bounded NW is land ____ to Joseph Warly.' on 4 January 1785 at Old Ninety Six District, Anderson County, South Carolina. He was census 1790 in 1790 at South Carolina; A Century of Population Growth 1790-1900, from the first census of the US to the 12th, 1790-1900 (Bureau of Census, Dept of Commerce & Labor, Washington Gov Printing Office 1909), p. 237 - 'The spelling variants for DeWitt are De Witt, Dewett, Dewhit, Dewight, Dewit, De Wite, Dewitt, Duet, Duett, Duewit, in the 1790 census.' In 1790 census there were 3 Dewitt families in CT, 1 in RI, 45 in NY, 12 in PA, 1 in MD, 2 in VA, and 15 in SC. There were 79 heads of families with a total of 387 family members listed in 1790 census. Average family size 5.9 A number of DeWitt families seem to be intermingled, and not sure how to sort them out. From Abstract of Goodspeed - Mississippi, Gillis, 1962 'The Dutch people named DeWitt who settled in New York state mid-1600's were from Sjirck Classen DeWitt of Grootland, Zunderlanet and Barbara Andriessen, Amsterdam, his wife. They married into families of Bogardus, Clinton and Ten Eychen to name a few. So far I have found towns, counties and rivers named 'DeWitt' to be named for DeWitt Clinton as was the town of DeWitt, Arkansas. I have never found any indication that the Dutch people ever spelled the name any way except DeWitt. I do find evidence of DeWhitt being an English name even before the Norman conquest. But, I cannot find DeWhitt in American records. I am sure that many of the DeWitts in official records and indexes are actually DeWhits but it is almost impossible to know which.

Not many miles below Turkey Creek (Saluda), Coronaca had intimate relations with that church, and asked its help on serious matters. The meeting had no pastor through 1800 though Arthur Williams was licensed and working among them in 1799. He was ordained and assumed the pastorate in the year 1801, when the name of the church was changed to Providence.' There is a chart, called statistics of Coronaca [Providence] Church, 1794-1803.
