My Grandpa John Pat Truitt is buried at the Jackson Line (Dehart ) Cemetery in Swain Co with his first wife Nancy H. Gasaway Truitt and his second wife Pallie Holden Mason Truitt. I have been there and put flowers on their graves. On my Grandpa Truitt's birth certificate in 1892 it says that a John Patton Truitt was his father and Lorena Truitt (maiden name) was his mother but I can find NO record of his father's birth, marriage to Lorena or death. I would like to know more about the father on my Grandpa's birth certificate.......it is possible that (Reney) gave my Grandpa her Maiden name like she did her other son Murphy and maybe Merritt ML.??? John W. Truitt was her father's name and John Patton Dehart was her father-in-law's name and Pat Dehart delivered my Grandpa Truitt. Could Reney have put these names together and named my Grandpa....JOHN PAT TRUITT???
Luv us some Truitt's/Dehart's.........:). Carol Truitt Lloydcaroltlloyd@hotmail.com
