In Reply to: Benjamin DOOLITTLE in Urbana, Champaign Co., OH by William Taber of 788

This is an involved family.
Benjamin Doolittle b. Nov 4, 1784 Brownsville, Fayette, Pa. d. May 7, 1832 in Pekin, Taswell, Il. His father was Moses Doolittle and mother was Mary Scott. He m. April 1, 1806 in Morgantown, Monongalia co. W.Va. to Rachel Stitt b. Feb 25, 1786 in Chester Co. Pa. d. Oct 25, 1834 in Pekin, Taswell, Il.
Their first two children were born in W.Va., their last 4 were born in Urbana, Champaign Ohio If you need their names and dates of birth let me know.

Rachel Stitt was the daughter of Edward Stitt, who was also the father of my William Stitt. Edward Stitt was actually William Edward Stitt of Penn. Edward owned land in Morgantown with William my 3rd g.grandfather.

My 4th g.grandfather Arthur Wilson was married to Sarah Doolittle, sister of Benjamin Doolittle and Thomas Doolittle who married a Stitt sister.

Arthur and Sarah's daughter Nancy Ann Wilson m. William Stitt, jr. Then Nancy and William's son Obadiah W. Stitt m. Sarah Ann Wilson, daughter of Jesse H. Wilson and Rebecca McClellan, brother of Nancy. Obadiah was my g.g.grandfather.

Arthur Wilson senior died in Sheffield Tippacanoe In. as did his wife Sarah and his second wife Elizabeth Wade.

When Nancy Ann Wilson and William Stitt were married Benjamin Doolittle signed the bond.
I have the Wilson Genealogy, much of the Doolittle Genealogy and the Stitt Genealogy.

Before the Wilson's came to WV they lived in upper Rock Creek Valley, present Montgomery Co. Maryland.

Also Nancy Ann and Jesse's sister Lydia, m. John McClellan Jr. Their daughter Carolyn Elizabeth McClellan m. Austin Fallis Stitt who was the son of Obadiah W. Stitt and his first wife Lucinda Fallis.

Its a wonder any of us can tie our own shoes.
