OF
Nancy "Winfrey" Luttrell
In Pine Grove, March 26, 1894, Mrs. Nancy Luttrell a native of Kentucky aged 85 years, 7 months, and 8 day's.
Deceased was one of the earliest settlers in this vicinity having resided here most of the time for about 39 years, during which time she formed a large circle of acquaintances and warm friends. Grandma Luttrell, as she was always called was born in Adair County Kentucky, August 25 1808. In early life she was converted to the Christian religion. At the age of 20 years she was married to Caleb Luttrell, a few years later they removed to the State of Missouri, and settled in Bollivar, then the county seat of Polk County, and remained there until the Spring of 1846 when with her husband and family she journeyed
across the plains. Late in October they arrived in Placerville, then a mining camp. Three day's later her husband died of pneumonia having caught a severe
cold while standing guard while crossing the mountains. Then she was left alone in a strange land with five children to provide for but she did it nobly and well. Many a woman would have given up in despair under similar circumstances but she did not. She was energetic and far seeing and in a year's time accumulated enough yellow metal to return to her relatives in Missouri and buy a farm. Four years later she came again to the golden state and in 57 and 58 kept a provisions store in Pine Grove in the building where J.T. Wheeler now keeps store. In 1856 she again crossed the plains and settled in Dallas County, Missouri intending to remain there the balance of her days but the civil war broke out, the country was rent asunder and all was turmoil and strife and her home was broken up, so she determined to return to again to California landing at San Francisco Dec. 15 1865. She came direct to Pine Grove and has resided here ever since. She was the mother of seven children of whom but 3 survive her. Mrs. Delia Lowry and C.C. Luttrell of Pine Grove and a son living in the East. The late Mrs. Mary Hawkins who died in Ione 4 months ago was also her daughter. She has many grand children and great grand children. She was a kind and loving mother always doing deeds of kindness and trying to make others happy.
"Weep not that her toil is over
Weep not that her race is run
God grant that we may rest as calmly
When our work, like hers is done."

2.2. «b»Benjamin Witt«/b» (c1710? \endash c1775) The first record of him is the notation in the King William parish register of the birth of a daughter Mariane on 19 March 1732/3 to Benjamin Witt and his wife Mariane.«u»«sup»30«/u»«/sup» She is believed to be the daughter of Jean Chastain and his wife Charlotte, who were the child's godparents. His other children's births are not recorded there, and it is uncertain where he was living at the time. By 1740 he had moved about 20 miles south of his father into the part of Goochland that would shortly become Buckingham County and he patented land there in 1744.«u»«sup»31«/u»«/sup» In 1756, as a resident of Buckingham County, he purchased land in Prince Edward County with his children Lewis and Charles as witnesses.«u»«sup»32«/u»«/sup» He and his sons Lewis and Charles were all on the 1755 tithables list of Prince Edward, though Charles appealed the tax (probably because he was still a resident of Buckingham). His sons Lewis and Charles both appeared as witness to deeds in the next few years, but Benjamin himself seems to have gone back to Buckingham County where he appears in its records. He was alive in mid-1774 when he and Benjamin Jr. appear as tithables, but was dead by late 1775 when his widow and son Benjamin Jr. sold the remainder of the land in Prince Edward County which Benjamin had purchased in 1756.«u»«sup»33«/u»«/sup» His children included «b»Lewis«/b», «b»Marianne«/b», «b»Benjamin«/b», «b»Charles«/b», «b»John«/b» and perhaps other daughters.
It seems likely that the legend of Huguenot ancestors first arose among the descendants of Benjamin Witt, whose wife is thought to have been a granddaughter of the Huguenot Pierre Chastain. Descendants may have confused the background of the Witts and the Chastains. The earliest reference I've found is a statement by Benjamin Witt's great-grandson Rev. Daniel Witt, who wrote in 1860 about his brother Rev. Jesse Witt: "On the side of his father he was a descendant of a Huguenot family which settled at Manakin Town ferry in the early history of this country." Meaning, it seems clear, the Chastain family.

Benjamin Witt and Peter Chastain are among those levied to clear a road over Willis River in Goochland in 1741.

On July 16, 1744 he patented 200 acres on Hunt Creek, a branch of the Slate River in what is now Buckingham County.

Twelve years later he purchased 204 acres in Prince Edward County and the deed is witnessed by his sons, Lewis Witt and Charles Witt. One hundred acres of this tract were sold by Benjamin and Mary Witt of Buckingham County in 1770 to Jeremiah Hardwick.

Benjamin Witt, his son, Benjamin and Peter Chastain are on the tax lists for Buckingham County in 1773, but Benjamin Witt, Sr. is dead by 1775 when his wife Mary Witt and son Benjamin disposed of the remaining 104 acres of the Prince Edward Tract.

OBITUARY OF CELIA FRANCIS WITT LUTTRELL
Celia Francis Witt was born in the state of Illinois January 11, 1836; died at her home near Brumley, January 19, 1921 at 7;30 p. m. after a lingering illness of three weeks. All that skilled physicians, loving hears and willing hands could do was done but alas, her work was done; the lord said "It is enough, come up higher." She, with her parents came to Miller county in the year 1840 and has resided in Miller county ever since except one year she lived in the state of Iowa. In the year 1862, she was united in marriage to Henry Luttrell and to this union were born 8 children--two girls and six boys, her husband and George, the oldest son, having preceded her to the spirit world many years ago. Those still living are B. D., W. S. and H. M. Luttrell of Brumley; and J. J. and Bluford Luttrell of Miami, Oklahoma;
Mrs. Joe Duncan and Mrs. Greenberry Pemberton of Brumley. She was the grand- mother of 43 grandchildren and 56 great-grandchildren. She had lived a devoted Christian.

Funeral services were held from the Mount Union Church January 21st at which time the writer tried to speak words of comfort to the sorrowing ones from Jobe 14;14. "If a man die shall he live again"--after which all that was mortal of our beloved sister was conveyed to the cemetery near by and there amid sobs and sighs of a host of relatives and friends was laid beside her husband to await the second coming of our blessed Saviour, at which time all that are in their graves shall come forth; They that have done good to life eternal, but they have done evil to everlasting destruction. How consoling the thought when we think of
the words of the beloved, which died in the Lord; from henceforth, yea sayeth the spirit, they shall rest from their labors and their works to follow them." And now dear ---es let us bow our heads in humble submission to Him that doeth all things well and until that great day let us say, "Dear Mother, farewell."

John Witt lived during the generation preceding the American Revolution, being an older man during the war. He was the eldest son of William Witt, being named executor of his father's last will and testament.

Records of the early periods in the development of America are scarce. For this reason our knowledge of the children of John and Lucy (Littlebury) Witt is limited to only names, except Elisha, our ancestor.

Story by Wayne Witt Bates (Witt/Daux material originally published in Vol. 1, No.1, and Vol. 1, No. 4, of the Harbour-Witt Bulletins. This information was published in the Witt's End newsletter, volume 1, Issue 1:
John Witt/Whitt was born circa 1645 and he died around 1715. He is on record married to Ann Daux, daughter of Walter and Mary Daux, in 1673 living in Charles City County, Virginia. Their homesite is described in 1687 as "on ye main road" near the road's end in Charles City before its entering Henrico County.

There is no record of John's father nor do we know where he was born. If John was born in Virginia, his grandfather could have been one of two colonists, William Whitt or Edmund Whitt - who survived the Indian massacre of 1622 and were listed in the February 1623 census as among those alive in Virginia. Edmund lived near Jamestown; William had lived at "Chaplaine's Chosie" near modern Hopewell and after the massacre he took refuge with other survivors across James River in Charles City County.

There is no record to show that William Whitt had progeny, and colonial records show that William White (sic) died in 1624. William Whitt/White may have been related to John White (also spelled as With and Whit) the celebrated artist and cartographer of London who in 1587 was appointed by Sir Walter Raleigh as "Chiefest Governour of the Cittie of Raleigh" (Lost Colony) and whose granddaugter was Virginia Dare. A William White appears in New World Records of Raleigh's 1585 expedition to map and explore America's Atlantic Coast. John White accompanied the expedition, and it was customary for a painter and stainer to have a helper. William may have been John's son and helper. In 1607 a William White was among the immigrants who settled Jamestown and he was described in a record as knowing the Indian's language and customs which in 1607 could only have been acquired through previous voyages. In the Virginia census of 1623 the name of this man is spelled "White".

The name John Witt appears in a 20 November 1659 record that gives the information that "John Witt of Ross Wye, Herefordshire, England (is) bound to serve John Braine, mariner" destination Bristol (probably Bristol Parish in the Barbadoes). This individual could have been the man who married Ann Daux. If so John's father would have lived in Herefordshire.

The earliest record located of his name spelled "John Whitt" shows that on 20 Nov 1670 he acquired half ownership of a patent of 600 acres "beginning at a neck opposite to Dogges Hand" on the Potomac River. John must have made private agreement to sell his half-interest to his partner John Woorman who in 1673 sold the tract to yet another man. This tract became George Mason's land now Mason's Neck adjacent to George Washington's Mount Vernon.

In Charles City County court actions in 1677, John Whit served as a member of the jury. This service within the Colonial government indicates he had not participated in Bacon's Rebellion in 1676.

The location of John's residence on the northeast side of James River is given in a Charles City County Road order dated February 1687. "Where there is an absolute necessity for this county to clear & layout a commone roade from Chickahominy bridge down and up these parts of the county. We do therefore request & impower Major John Stith to summon every individual & inhabitant & housekeeper on ye N side James River in this one county ...to clear a main road from the sd bridge (Chickahominy) into ye roads to or near Harman Bosman's habitation as affore from ye bridge into ye main road near John Whitt's."

Since no bridge existed in 1687 across the Chickahominy at the Main Road the bridge would have been upstream, perhaps at Old Providence Forge. By coming "down" from the bridge toward the Main Road parallel to James River then going "up" the Main Road would place the Whitt home near the boundary line with Henrico County at Turkey Isle Creek's Shirley Mill Pond of Shirley Hundred plantation and near William Randolph's Malvern Hills plantation in Henrico County. The northwestern area of old Charles County was a political shire that had developed around the community of Shirley Hundred plantation. In the mid-seventeenth century this plantation was owned by Colonel Edward Hill. An important local industry was Shirley Mill for grain and corn and wheat. The Main Road once an Indian trail and now the modern Highway 5 (VSH 5), still extends as it did in Colonial days from Jamestown northward along James River to present South Richmond's old "Water Wharf" on Gilly's Creek near James River's Mayo bridge. It was this "Main Road" on which John Witt/Whitt and his wife lived and raised their family.

The father of Ann Daux, son of Richard Daux, merchant of London, had died in 1658. The girls had an older stepbrother, his last name "Plaine" and all three of these children were called "orphans" in court records circa 1660s, even though their mother Mary (Plaine, Daux, Flowers) was still living. In 1658 Mary married a third time to a recent immigrant John Flowers and by using the legal system he took over total control of the estates of Mary's first two husbands. On record were several land tracts that had belonged to Walter Daux - one being near that of Edward Hill's plantation; also there were Daux's tobacco shipments, and a 750 acre tract of Robert Plaine's described as being in the same area as Daux's specifically between Herring Creek and Turkey Isle Creek. As if to reinforce his status, Flowers obviously in favor with County authorities, in August 1659 was sworn in as Constable of Shirley Hundred shire.

From "William Witt and the French Connection" by Marcus M. Key, Houston, and Marleta Childs Ross, Lubbock. "Through the research of Wayne Witt Bates and the Harbour-Witt Family Association, new evience concerning early Witts in Virginia has been brought to light. John Witt first appeared in Virginia records in 1673, when he and Richard Rawlins petitioned the Charles City County Court in an attempt to recover their wives' inheritance -- their wives (Ann and Susan Daux, respectively) being daughters of Walter Daux (also spelled Daukes), Charles City County. Walter Daux, first listed as a headright in 1637 was the son of Richard Daux of London. Daux could be either English or French. Witt could be English, Dutch or French. There are 16th century naturalization record of French Huguenots in England listing a Peers Whit, born in Normandy, living in Dorset in 1544 and similar data for a John Whytt.

In 1715, John and William Witt of Charles City Co. purchased of Charles Hudson 300 acres of land on a branch of Tuckahoe Creek in Henrico County. Tuckahoe Creek later (1728) became the eastern boundary of Goochland County and in 1751, when William Witt and John Witt, Jr. sold 150 acres of the land purchased of Charles Hudson, it was described as being in Goochland County. The deed stated that John and William Witt were brothers and that John Witt, Jr. was the son of John Witt. In 1752, William Witt sold the remaining 150 acres on Tuckahoe Creek. The indentification of the Witt brothers as sons of John Witt/Whitt and Ann Daux is based on the following;
(1) John and William Witt were originally of Charles City Co., and the land they purchased on Tuckahoe Creek in 1715 was some 40 miles northwest of where John Witt/Whitt of Charles City County had lived on the Main Road (VSH 5) near its intersection with the Road from the Chickahominy (Long) Bridge (probably County Road 609) in 1687 - "up the country" being the usual migration route at that time; and...
(2) both John Witt and William Witt named their eldest son John, presumptive evidence that the grandfather was named John. The above mentioned intersection was less than a mile from Herring Creek, and it is of interest that a tract of land in that area was still known as "Whit's" in the 1760's.

3371 «b»Caleb Witt was one of the first settlers and certainly deserved attention. he was originally from Halifax County, Virginia. Soon after the Revolutionary War, he settled about 15 miles from Bent Creek. Witt and his two brothers, Elijah and Joseph, operated a foundry and machine shop known as Witt's Foundry in what is now the Witt Community. Both Caleb and Elijah had served with the State of North Carolina in the Revolutionary War. Caleb Witt served as pastor of Bent Creek Church after the death of Tidence Lane. «/b»
«b»Witt also helped to organize Bethel South of the Holston Church (or Bethel South Church) in 1803. The church was located in what is now Morristown and is not the First Baptist Church at a different location.

3375 The publication "The Huguenot" Publication No. 32, 1985-1987 (The Huguenot Society of the Founders of Manakin in the Colony of Virginia, Inc., includes this story:
Richard Witt/Whit/Whitt was born around 1690 and he died before 1769 probably in Bute County, North Carolina. The name of his first wife may have been Elizabeth, daugther of Edmund Liptrot of Henrico County «b»36«/b». The name of his second wife who he married around 1748 was Mary Kimbrough «b»37«/b». Men named John, Robert, Hezekiah and Richard all Carolina frontiersmen, are believed to be sons of Richard and his first wife. Another son may have been Edmund Witt (his virginia/North Carolina military records sometimes spelled the name "With"). In 1730 Richard Witt (the elder) witnessed a deed for Robert Groom, Grantor and Joseph Mayo, Grantee, the land described "...on Gillys Creek" in Henrico County «b»38«/b». [Joseph Mayo and his brother William Mayo, Surveyor, were immigrants from Barbadoes. Joseph developed Gillys Creek fronting on James River into a busy Water Wharf with warehouses where old Main Road ends near (modern) Mayo Bridge, Richmond.] One of the 1730 deed's witnesses, George Carrington, married Willliam Mayo's daughter, but except for the marriage in 1793 of a grandson to a girl named "Mayo," there is no known relationship of Richard with either Groom or Mayo «b»39«/b». Although he acquired land in Goochland County (and then conveyed it quickly to others) Richard Witt/Whitt chose to make his home in Southside Virginia, a Road Order in 1747 noting that he was a tithable in "...that part of Amelia Co., Va., now Prince Edward Co...road to be cleared from the place Capt Walker's old road crossed Sandy River by the nearest and best way to Bush River...«b»40«/b»" After the death of his first wife Richard may have devised this residence to a son and he and Mary moved into Lunenburg County.
In 1748 Richard and Mary acquired land in Bute County North Carolina, but they remained in Lunenburg County until 1751 «b»41«/b». Among neighbors were Colonel Sam Harris who became a leading Baptist preacher, Griffith Rutherford, later a Revolutionary War General of western North Carolina, and William Kimbrough «b»42«/b». As did many Southside Virginians in this era Richard and Mary became Baptists. In 1751 Richard acquired in Halifax County 200 acres "...beginning at Irbys corner pine on the south side of Dan River....«b»43«/b»" In 1752 the Halifax Court-- encouraged no doubt by local parish representataives (in spite of England's Toleration Act) --gave legal admonisment in the name of "...Our Sovereign Lord the King against Richard Witt and Mary Kimbro Defts for living in Adultry...«b»44«/b»" Several other couples were also indicted. Apparently their Baptist marrying parson had made no record in either the parish or county Court!! This was a serious accusation, the only alternative to move, not only out of the county but out of the Colony which several couples did including Richard and Mary who moved to their property on Tar River in Bute County, North Carolina «b»45«/b». It is interesting to note that Richard's name in Bute County documents concerning the same tracts of land is Witt/Whit/Whitt.«b»46«/b»" While the names of his brothers' wives are not known, Ricahrd Whitt (the younger) married Susanna Skaggs, sister of several hunters and furtraders «b»47«/b». Richard Whitt a Baptist Pastor in Montgomery County, Virginia, and wife were hospitable to relatives' visits and it was these contacts -- especially between his and the family of his brother Hezekiah Witt -- that shows their relationship. Weddings are traditionally a time for families to get together and a reunion doubtlessly occurred on 10 August 1789 when Richard's daughter, Ruth married her cousin, Jesse, son of Hezekiah Witt. The ceremony was performed by Richard who, after years of uncertainty as to the propriety of a Baptist preacher seeking government authorization to perform marriages, had obtained a license to marry on 26 July 1785 from Patrick Henry the Governor of Virginia «b»48«/b».

3377 WILLIAM JASPER WITT

From: The Miller County Autogram, 26 Feb 1891......
"William Jasper Witt, one of Ira T. Johnson's assistants on the ferry boat, met with an accident about 3:30 Monday afternoon from which he died about 11 o'clock that night. The ferry boat is rigged with a windlass at either end of the boat for the purpose of heading the boat upstream. When the river is high, as at present (1891) these windlasses are very hard to work, requiring a strong man to handle them....The accident happened on the south bank of the river during preparations to return to this side. In turning the windlass, the iron handle slipped out of his hand and coming over, struck Mr. Witt almost on the top of the head, crushing his skull fearfully.....He was taken into Johnson's drug store where Dr. James B. McGee dressed the terrible wound. Before this was completed, the injured man became unconscious and remained in that condition until death.....The remains were buried at the Scott Graveyard (upriver from Tuscumbia) on Wednesday. Witt leaves a wife and a large family of children."
He may be in an unmarked grave with no tombstone.

William Jasper Witt was born in Missouri about 1846. He first married Forbia N. Nicholas on 13 May 1866 by Andrew Brockman, a justice of the peace. In 1870 he and his family lived in Glaize Township near the families of Wyrick, Wickham, Witt, Renfrow, Myers, Casey, and Winfrey.

Sometime prior to 1877, his wife, Forbia/Ferby, died and on February 22, 1877 he married Sarah J. Thornton. Their marriage was performed by Hezekiah Robinett, a justice of the peace in Glaize Township. In 1880, they were living in Osage township near the families of Wyrick, Patterson, Hill, Lupardus, McCummins, and Topping.

6th, A. L. J. Womack (Abner) was a doctor. He first hung out his shingle in Hillsboro, Tenn., remained there about 1 year, went from there to the Sam Kenley (?) farm on the road between Prairie Plains and Decherd, remained there one year or more, moved from there to Hawkerville (Alto) remained there one or two years - from there to Beech Grove, practiced there about 2 years - moved from there to Pine Bluff, Ark. in 1852, there he established a drug store but continued the practice of medicine, accumulated consider able property, a farm, Negros, &c. The war came up in 1861. He went into a Confederate command2 I think the gth Ark. Infantry, was a surgeon in his regt., perhaps only assistant surgeon. When the war was ended., his negros freed, the farm and other property gone and devastated, he again engaged in his profession - but his health failed him. So about the year 1875 he came back to Tenn. (perhaps in the month of April) thinking he could recuperate his health, went to Laynes Springs on the Cumberland Mountain and died there in July of the same year, died of Asthma and consumption of the bowles, was buried at the grave yard on fathers old homested. Bro. Abner married Elizabeth Corn. She was raised on Elk River near Estill Springs, Franklin County., Tenn. They had 3 children, Mary Emely, Queen Victoria and Eliza - all three of the girls graduated from Mary Sharp College, Winchester, in June 1861. Their mother is also dead. They have wandered away from Pine Bluff Ark. so I do not now know their whereabouts.
