I am looking for information regarding my ancestor Elizabeth M. Chitty who was likely born about 1814 in Barnwell District, South Carolina. She lived most of the time near Springtown Baptist Church. She was adopted by David and Nancy Branch Rice at a young age and married Samuel W. DeWitt. If anyone of you can help me find Elizabeth's biological parents, I would appreciate it.

Have you considered that Elizabeth M. Chitty may have been the daughter of Nancy Branch by a previous marriage? I've been researching the Rices of Barnwell Co, trying to figure out h my own line fits into the family. A John Chitty is frequently mentioned in the Rice deeds, his land apparently bordering theirs. Good luck.

I remembered the name Dewitt in some research of the Chitty's. All I have right now is this link.

Wesley G. Chitty and Samuel Dewitt, maybe a connection, I do not know who his parent are.
