Life Story of Mrs. J. M. Witt
As Told by Herself
A little chart to show how she is related to Jim and to her great grandson,
Jim's 4th cousin.
The source of this typed story came from Gerald's Aunt
Elsie Witt DeVore circa 1980. His best guess is that the last two paragraphs
had been only notes added at the bottom of the page by someone else at a much
later date, but when the story was typed the last paragraphs were included
as if part the original text.
A note about the line "I am a granddaughter of Daniel Boone, the famous Kentucky
pioneer." (Second line of second paragraph.) This not true. Gerald said he
wasted years of research on this one line before he drew this conclusion.
Another thing is puzzling to him. She is absolutely correct about her grandfather
David Denton, whom she never had any contact with. Yet, she lived with her
McFadin mother and McFadin uncles and would not claim Elias B. McFadin as
her other grandfather.
