  • Notes 
    • "Although his will has not been found, Wayne Witt Bates' research has shown that John Witt II married Ann Rogers, daughter of John Rogers of Charles City County, Virgina. On page 298 in Charles City County Will and Deeds Book (1725-1731), ,the 1730 will of John Rogers reads:
      "Will of John Rogers of Westover Parish, Charles City County.
      To son John, all my land, some livestock and household items.
      To son Henry, livestock and items.
      To daughter Ann Whitt, wife of John Whitt, livestock and items.
      To daughter Judith, livestock.
      To daughter Sarah, livestock and a bill of Robert Green for 25 schillings.
      To daughter Anna Coley, wife of Thomas Coley, 1 schilling, she having before received her portion.
      To my grandson Willaim Coley, cow and calf.
      To wife Elizabeth, all of estate for life, and she to be executrix.
      Wit: Richard Hamlett, James (D) Davis.
      Signed: John Rogers.
      Recorded 5 Aug. 1730. Presented by executrix and proved by witness."
      It is important to note in the above record that scribes record John Witt's surname as Whitt.
