Maggy, the only Stitt and Stiff connection I have seen was in the civil war deposition of my ggrandmother Elizabeth Ford. She stated her husbands sister Diana Ford married a J.C.Stiff. However when she needed some corroberation on some information on her request for my great grandfathers civil war pension J.C. Stitt gave it. So I believe she just got her names mixed up. If anyone knows anything about J.C. Stitt would appreciate hearing from you.
