The purpose of this website is to find concrete evidence to prove the proper ancestors, descendants and sibling descendants of John Witt m. 3 Jan 1833 to Ara McNeil. Evidence and proofs demonstrating a link to William Witt and Lucy Reeves as the parents of John Witt is also a priority.
First evidence of the family of John Witt and Ara McNeil appears in the 1850 Census for Franklin Co., Winchester, Tennessee. In 1855 - 1856, the family moved to Pontotoc Co., MS. Most of their descendants remained in the Union, Lee and Pontotoc Counties of Mississippi through the 1920s and 1930s.
