The Hitts, A Study of the Descendants of Joel and Elizabeth Young Hitt Power of Attorney-6-16-1832, Fauquier Co. nothing found yet of first husband Butlas. Must have been born in log cabin now in Oldham. Anne Rodick says moved to Moultrie Co. Ill where she and Kellar both died and are buried.
Her descendent, Elizabeth Simons of Lou. Ky wrote that she died 3-22-1876. No proof offered according to E. Mc
Jody Netherton says died in Louisville.. Susan Peterson says died in 1845. Jody says Abraham was not a Baptist.
I haven't checked my file on Joel, but I know he died intestate, but I believe I have his inventory, or something and I think there was something about expenses for Nancy's wedding. This would have been a Henry County document. Anne Rodick email@example.com
