Don't know of any relation of my Merretts and the Witts. Merrett is my paternal line and Witt is on my maternal. My Merrett line is myself-James W Sr.-TB-Olin-Edgar-John. All with an "ett". Haven't gotten back far enough to find any "itt" Merretts yet. Would like to get info on the Witts prior to David. Any maternal info would also be helpful. Always exciting to hear from another cousin.
