Re: FITZWATER FAMILIES in AMERICA
My name Katheryn.My original source of proof is Mary Cole who published Descendants of Thomas and Mary Cheney Fitzwater.I am aware that bonds are not positive proof of biological relationship in marriage.Kentucky Archives does not have anything further in the records than what is in my publication.Also, there is no proof of the parentage of John Fitzwater being the son of John and Judith Fitzwater.This has been "kicked around"My conclusion is based on the consent of both John Fitzwater and Charity Humble.Charity's father says "my daughter" where John's just gives consent and this consent also has John and Judith's son, Thomas (proven in later court records as "only son") signature which was the mandate when guardian gave consent.I believe John and Judith were granted guardianship of John, but he is not their child.
There is much in KY on Conrad Humble, deeds, etc. that transfer land to John and Charity.But, I found nothing that would give positive proof of John and Charity's children.
If you want to become a member of DAR there is no record of parentage of John Fitzwater, married Charity.John Fitzwater, whose wife was Judith West was in Rev. War.If you locate any positive proof, please post.
