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.


Gerald Witt wrote this book in 1986. It is no longer available, but he has allowed me to present some of it in my web pages. As with the above narrative of his grandmother, the text is not available as a text file due to all the computer changes, etc. I could not use my OCR to give text that was reasonably correct. So I think the next best thing is to give JPG files that are readable on screen, without extra space and size of all the borders and page numbers. You may download the JPG files to your computer then print them in any size you like. Click here to go to the pages from this book.

Hiding my address underneath to avoid getting spam and unsolicited viruses has not worked very well. You will have to type in my email address from the picture file above. Perhaps you will also have to verify that you are a real person and not a robot if you are not in my mailing list. I apologize, but I know of no other good way to limit the junk mail.
