Lynnea I don't believe Daniel is in the immediate family of Dewitt. I know very little about Dewitt. He was a child of the marriage of Emery/Amory/Among and Susan Winebrenner.I found Susan and Dewitt in the home of Peter and Betsy Atherton in Carroll in 1850. The father of Dewitt was not listed and we have found no more information on Emery,Amory/Among. Peter and Besty had 9 children. Ralph (adopted), Emery P, Ransom, Cephas H, Susanna, Elizabeth, Louis, Zilpha and Zilpha. Peter was from Mass and Besty from VT.It appears all the children were born in NY.I did find Daniel in the home of Alexander in the 1850 census.Alexander does not appear to be a son of Peter.If he is related I do not know.Some of this information is found on the LDS Family search. Some is from research in Carroll Co. history books. Sorry I can't be of more help.
