James Porter (J.P.) DeWitt, b 1833 Ohio?
I'm searching for confirmation of my great great grandfather's parents. This is what I know of him:
James Porter DeWitt
2nd Independent Battery, Ohio Light Artilery, Pvt
b. Oct. 11, 1833, OH,
d Feb. 14, 1899 OR
1840 IN - 1928 OR
There is some conjecture that his parents were William DeWitt (son of Henry DeWitt and Sarah Friend) and Sarah Love, as they did have son named James, with at least two different dates of birth, but close. Does anyone have proof, or know more?
Thank you, Dorinda
