    1. [HITT] Peter Hitt descendents
    2. Jeff P. via
    3. As many have tried to do before, I am trying to map the descendents from Peter Hitt the immigrant, at least the first 4 or 5 generations. I am trying to collect copies of original source documentation to do the identification. Peter Hitt names 6 children in his will: John, Joseph, Harman, Mary Ann, Henry, Peter. I have found excellent documentation to prove the children of Peter and Harman, as well as many of their grand children. I have visited Fauquier County, and Prince William County, and have many copies of original documents from those counties. However, living in central US, traveling on genealogy trips to the east coast doesn't happen frequently and can get quite expensive. I am hopeful that there are a number of researchers on this list that may have copies of some of the documents from other counties and states. I have very little primary documentation on John, Joseph, and Henry's children. If anyone is able and willing to help, it would be much appreciated. Scanned images work greator I will gladly pay for photocopies and postage. I have scanned in most if not all of the documents that I got from Fauquier and Prince William and would be glad to send those to any interested parties. I actually have two Hitt lines that trace back to Fauquier County, Virginia. One on my wife's side and one on my side. The lineage on my side is a Mary Ann Hitt married Joseph Joel Martin, believed daughter of John Hitt son of Peter the immigrant (I have no documentation proving that). On my wife's side her line ends with Peter Hitt b. 1811 in Fauquier County, Virginia died 1892 in Union County, Ohio, lived in Licking County, Ohio since a young man. No idea on who his parentage is. All we have is a family Bible with his birth place no parents names unfortunately. I look forward to communicating with you and sharing in research.

Benjamin Hitt, who came to Laurens Co, South Carolina as a child from Virginia, probably Fauquier Co., and then moved onward to Alabama and Mississippi. Several years ago I made an extensive study of the Hitts in South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi. I also looked carefully at the earlier Hitts in Virginia. The results of that research is online in WorldConnect (http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/) in the database 'hnparker'. I have the good fortune to live in Houston, Texas, where I have access to a good genealogical library, which has, inter alia, abstracts of early public records from many Virginia counties. I have made extensive use of facsimile copies of Virginia records obtainable from the collection of the Mormon Church in Salt Lake City. I can view them on microfilm at the genealogical library that I mentioned. Hence, I have been able to do extensive research without the expense of a trip to Virginia, although I have been at Germanna. I suspect that the Peter Hitt who lived in Licking Co., Ohio is a brother of William Russell Hitt, who married Mahala Gladstone in Fauquier Co. 2 Apr 1832 and who subsequently moved to Perry Co., Ohio. They lived in Thorn Township, which is in the NW corner of the county close to Licking Co. See my database. Another database in WorldConnect with information on many descendants of the immigrant Peter Hitt (many more than in my database) is 'hitthaynie' created by Earl J. Hitt. Use it with caution because it contains obvious errors which Earl J. Hitt has refused to acknowledge and correct. These are in addition to the conjectures and suppositions which are in all such databases and which may or may not be correct. Another large Hitt database in WorldConnect is 'jbh'.
