I think Dwight and Dewitt may be the same person but I have been able to prove this. I  have been working on this for several years.

Thanks

So do you know any of his siblings? Did you investigate James, Thomas, and Jane?

I could not find anything on them. Thanks

      Elizabeth Baldwin 34
      Jane Bird 24
      Marriage record above shows that is the second marriage for RIchard.
      None of which proves that Dwight is Dewitt. But it helps to establish the family of Dwight and maybe prove that Dwight is Dewitt.

      I'll keep looking.
