Thomas and his son, Thomas Jr., swore an oath of allegiance to Virginia in 1777, yet he was still assessed taxes in Maryland as late as 1783.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thomas came to VA in 1771 from the Maryland colony. With him came Samuel W. Cecil. Each of these men had ten children , five of each family intermarrying. Pioneer of SW VA; "Crab Orchard" at head of Clinch Rr; DAR Patriot Index for VA: Centennial Edition has birth, death,spouse, and PS Cmsry VA.

In "American Forts Yesterday and Today", Ft. Witten is no . 57 inwestern VA near Tazewell. It marks the first settlement in this section of Clinch Valley. It was built by Thomas in 1767 and has been reconstructed. (See Links)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"History of Tazewell Co. and W.W. Va, 1748-1920 by W.C. PENDLETON listed the WITTEN family of Teutonic origin, but left Saxony and migrated to England as early as the 9th century. The WITTEN and CECIL families were said to have come to America with the CALVERT's and that in 1766 Thomas WITTEN and Samuel CECIL, his brother-in-law, moved from MD to southwest VA and resided temporarily on Walker's Creek in what is present-day Giles County. His oldest son, Thomas WITTEN had married before leaving MD, remained in Bedford Co., VA at the Peaks of Otter, later moving onward to the Clinch River where he lived for a number of years, then returned to Bedford Co., and the descendants in Bedford and Amherst Counties now use the spelling of WHITTEN.

In 1767 Thomas WITTEN and family settled on the Clinch River. There was at that time five unmarried sons and daughter , Elizabeth, had married John Greenup. John and Elizabeth G REENUP were the parents of Governor GREENUP of KY. Thomas , Jr., James and Jeremiah were Revolutionary War soldiers . Thomas, Jr. became an Indian fighter, served in the Montgomery Co., Militia as an Ensign and married his cousin Elea nor CECIL, settling at the east end of Paint Lick Mt. He represented Tazewell Co. in the VA General Assembly in 1801-1903 and received a pension for his services in the Revolution, according to the National Archives.

Note: I have not been able to prove Mr. Pendleton's information stating the Wittens came from England with the Calverts, nor have I been able to disprove his information.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Per "Whitten and Allied Families", 'The most recent Tazewell Co. history written by John N. HARMON in 1925, has much about the WITTEN family including an address by Homer WITTEN of Cambridge, Ohio, to an assembly of WITTENS at North Baltimore, Ohio in 1907. Homer said that the family tradition says that the family came to England as early as the 4th or 5th century, but no records are available before 856, when the family appears in the records of Yorkshire, England. WITTENS came to America about 1632 with the CECILS and CALVERTS, with whom they inter-married. Homer, great-grandson of Thomas, II, goes into detail about the descendants of Thomas and any interested should consult HARMON's "History of Tazewell Co.

Note: Again, I have not been able to approve or disprove the Witten/Calvert Connection.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another account of the WITTEN family from this same history was written by the Rev. Robert WITTEN of the Missouri Methodist Conference in 1906. He stated that the family was German and that many of the same name still live in Wittenburg, Germany. He further stated that, about 1850, 3 brothers emigrated to America, one going to GA, another to NC and Thomas to Tazewell Co., VA.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thomas divided his estate among his sons before he died. The home estate went to William Stanley who cared for his aged parents during their last years. About 1805, William Stanley and family moved to Sequatchie Valley, Bledsoe Co., TN . They had four sons who became Methodist preachers, and seven daughters.

Information supplied for the 'Whitten and Allied Families ' book was given by Mrs. L.G. (Peggy) RICH of Clemson, SC , a descendant.

In 1945, Evelyn Johns Salisbury hired Harry Wright Newman of Washington DC to do research on the Witten Family. He also did work for her on the Cecil Family. The following are his reports. There are also letters from others following his report. In Newman's cover letter, he states that the Cecil report will follow under separate cover. I have not found that report. K

Mrs. Herbert Salisbury

Prestonsburg, Kentucky

Dear Mrs. Salisbury:

Enclosed you will find the results of my study of the Witten Family in Maryland which actually occupied more time than the allotted day. I collected all possible data on your known ancestor and attempted to prove his parentage with the other families bearing that name in Maryland with no apparent result.

You will note that there were Wittens in Cecil County, where the name Thomas figures in the latter 1600s, but from the available data at the Probate Court I could not satisfactory prove the connection, if any. Then there were Wittens living in Prince Georges County (from which Frederick County was organized) at an early date but from the will it looked as if the testator held no land - anyhow, I could not prove your ancestor, Thomas Witten, up to the sons - John and William.

The only other medium of research which I can suggest is the deeds in Cecil County and early Prince Georges as well as other land records which were not covered in this research. For the deeds of Cecil County, one would have to go to Elkton, the county seat, but some of the land records, if any are available, can be obtained from Annapolis.

Enclosed is also the Witten lineage to a Magna Charta surety. The data supplied you on the Cecil family, I am sending by registered mail under separate cover. I may add this. The source reference for the emigration of John Cecil is Liber 4, folio 29, Land Office, Annapolis, instead of Liber 6, folio 129, as indicated in your data.

Regret that I step beyond the commission and expressed my opinion so frankly in my previous letter. I should have confined all my remarks strictly to the task as commissioned by you. I acted, however, with the best of intentions.

Hoping that I may have the pleasure of serving you again in the near future, and if you wish the land records and deeds, I shall be happy to be of service.

Very Truly yours,

Harry Wright Newman, F.A.S.G.

Annals of Tazewell County, Virginia, p. 560

Thomas Witten I, moved from Maryland to Southwest Virginia and located in Giles County, on Walker's Creek. Bickley's History says that Thomas Witten and John Greenup settled at Crab Orchard, on Clinch River in what is now Tazewell County, in 1771. Thomas Witten, assisted by his sons and neighbors, in 1772 or 1773, built a fort for protection from the Indians. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War.

"The first permanent settlers came from Augusta and Rockbridge counties, New River and its tributaries. Thomas Witten and son(?) Cecil came from Walker's Creek in Giles County in 1766 to be the first white settlers; in 1767, with his wife, five unmarried sons, his daugher and her husband, John Greenup, he settled at Big Crab Orchard, some five miles southwest of Tazewell, obtained land in 1771 and built a fort. His wife was Elizabeth Cecil of Maryland stock. Captain William Cecil, son of Samuel, married Ann Witten in 1773, and to him was issued in 1774 the earliest patent for land in Tazewell County.

SOURCES: DAR Magazine article dated April 1966 written by Helen Bottim ore JONES entitled "Philip Witten's Cyphering Book." This article was b ased on a record given to the DAR which was begun by Philip WITTEN in F rederick Co., MD June 23, 1766.

The History of the Middle River Settlements and Contiuguous Territor y by D.E. JOHNSTON, published 1906 lists at least one chapter on th e Tazewell Co., VA WITTEN family. He states the family of Saxon descen t from Wittenburg, in Prussia and the family emigrated to America at an e arly date, settling in MD at the time of the earliest settlements there . They intermarried with the CECIL family. A few years before 1771, T homas WITTEN with his wife, moved from Fredericktown, MD living on Walk er's Creek a year or more and by March 16, 1771 settled on the Clinch R iver at the Crab Orchard west of the present-day Tazewell courthousse. J ames WITTEN settled near what is now Pisgah Church and Jerry WITTN was f ound west of town. They were long time prominent citizens of Tazewell a nd it is said that James WITTEN brought the first negro slaves into tha t county.

The History of the Settlement and Indian Wars of Tazewell Co., VA by George W.L. BICKLEY, published in 1852, states Thomas WITTEN and J ohn GREENUP settled at Crab Orchard in the spring of 1771, the land pur chased from Mr. BUTLER. A fort was erected by Thomas in Tazewell Co. t o protect the family from the Indians.

I removed the "Jefferson" from Thomas Witten (b.1719). I have seen no c ontemporary records to indicate he was named such. After all, how woul d the Wittens of Maryland even known of Thomas Jefferson? After T.J ca me to prominence in the mid-1700s, maybe so, but President T.J. wasn't e ven born until 1743, and his namesake uncle and grandfather were not pr ominent to have been known outside the central Virginia planter circles . And I think the same can be said on Thomas Witten (b.1753).

History of Tazewell Co. and W.W. Va, 1748-1920, by W.C. PENDLETO N listed the WITTEN family of Teutonic origin, but left Saxony and migr ated to England as early as the 9th century. The WITTEN and CECIL fami lies were said to have come to America with the CALVERT's and that in 1 766 Thomas WITTEN and Samuel CECIL, his brother-in-law, moved from MD t o southwest VA and resided temporarily on Walker's Creek in what is pre sent-day Giles County. His oldest son, Thomas WITTEN had married befor e leaving MD, remained in Bedford Co., VA at the Peaks of Otter, later m oving onward to the Clinch River where he lived for a number of years, t hen returned to Bedford Co., and the descendants in Bedford and Amherst C ounties now use the spelling of WHITTEN.

In 1767 Thomas WITTEN and family settled on the Clinch River. There was a t that time five unmarried sons and daughter, Elizabeth, had married Jo hn Greenup. John and Elizabeth GREENUP were the parents of Governor GR EENUP of KY. Thomas, Jr., James and Jeremiah were Revolutionary War so ldiers. Thomas, Jr. became an Indian fighter, served in the Montgomery C o., Militia as an Ensign and married his cousin Eleanor CECIL, settling a t the east end of Paint Lick Mt. He represented Tazewell Co. in the VA G eneral Assembly in 1801-1903 and received a pension for his services in t he Revolution, according to the National Archives.

The Whitten and Allied Families by Virginia Wood Alexander and W m. C. Whitten, 1984 states, "James WITTEN was a distinguished hunter an d woodsman by the age of 15 years, chosen to act as a spy, brave and ge neraous and became a conspicious character in border wars. 'When any d uty requiring bravery, firmness, or purdence had to be performed JAMES W ITTEN was chosen, as he possessed these qualities to an eminent degree. ' The BICKLEY's "History...of Tazewell Co., VA" states James married h is cousin Rebecca CECIL, and lived and died on Plum Creek. His brother, J eremiah, was a Private, serving under Captain William Russell's Company , performing garrison duty at the Crab Orchard. He lated lived on Plum C reek.

The Virginia Magazine of Historical and Biographical, Vol. 29, p age 35 states "a Petitions of Inhabitants of the upper Clinch to the Go v. of Va.," explaining why they did not march off to NC to fight the Br itish during the late war, claiming their families would have been left a lone and unprotected from the Indians. Several of these petitions were s igned by James, William Jeremiah, and Thomas Witten, Jr. In one petiti on it was stated "the body of Indians that was encamped below Knoxville a re removed, part of whom towards Powell's Valley."

Per Whitten and Allied Families, 'The most recent Tazewell Co. h istory written by John N. HARMON in 1925, has much about the WITTEN fam ily including an address by Homer WITTEN of Cambridge, Ohio, to an asse mbly of WITTENS at North Baltimore, Ohio in 1907.

He further sta ted that, about 1850, 3 brothers emigrated to America, one going to GA, a nother to NC and Thomas to Tazewell Co., VA. William Stanley WITTEN, s on of Thomas, I, and the grandfather of the Rev. Robert, organized the f irst Methodist class in Tazewell and moved to the Sequatchie Valley, Bl edsoe Co., Tenn., in 1805. William had 4 sons and 7 daughters; the son s were all Methodist preachers. James, the eldest, was b. Jan. 5, 1793, w as a 1st. Lt. in the War of 1812, and entered the Tenn. Conf. Meth. Chu rch in 1817. His brothers were John Wesley, b. 1800, Wm. Abbott, b. 18 07, and Thomas, b. 1809."

Early Families of Eastern and Southeastern Kentucky, by William C . KOZEE, contains a bit of information on James WITTEN, the famous spy, a nd states that he had the following children: Col. Wilkerson, Dr. Will iam, Thomas, Jacob, who married Elizabeth LESTER April 18, 1820 in Floy d Co., KY. Dr. William settled in floyd Co., KY and married Lockey HAC KWORTH October 24, 1819. Their children were: John Wesley, Susan who m arried Mr. HOWES, Isaac Quin, William Preston, Rebecca who married Mr. P RESTON, Thomas Floyd, Limmie who married Mr. PRESTON, Frank, Nancy who m arried Mr. MANKINS, George Hamilton. Several of these were listed as Un ion soldiers."

Thomas divided his estate among his sons before he died. The home esta te went to William Stanley who cared for his aged parents during their l ast years. About 1805, William Stanley and family moved to Sequatchie V alley, Bledsoe Co., TN. They had four sons who became Methodist preach ers, and seven daughters.
