About Our Family Research

The Chitwood descendants of Pleasant Rufus Chitwood meet annually for a Chitwood Reunion. This year the reunion will be held in Dillsboro, NC at the Olde Towne Inn. June 16 -18, 2000. This is the first year to move from our roots in Alabama closer to our earliest roots in North Carolina where Capt. James Chitwood, a Tory, was hung after the Battle of King's Mountain, October,1780.

Our linneage is well documented in I.O. Chitwood's book, The Descendants of Matthias Chitwood. We are attempting to continue the family tree through the current generations and to help solve the mystery of the missing link from Matthias Chitwood to his father. There are many theories about who is the father of Matthias, but no bona fide solutions. Is there a line from the Chetwode's of England to Matthias Chitwood? Any information you have about Matthias' parentage is desired.
