  • Notes 
    • His Find a Grave page links to what is called his father, John DeWitt (1731-1804), but the text on John DeWitt's page, attributed to J. Kelsey Jones, makes it clear that John DeWitt was this Isaac's brother, not his father.

      From Isaac DeWitt's Find a Grave page, probably by researcher J. Kelsey Jones:

      He is not the Isaac DeWitt bpt 1 Nov 1741 son of Paulus DeWitt and wife Catherine in the Reformed Church at Readington, New Jersey as this Isaac d. 18 Sept 1828 [aged] 87y 7d [and is buried in] Upper Harmony Cemetery, Warren County, New Jersey. The Isaac DeWitt of our interest was taxed in Newton township (that portion that is now Frankford), Sussex County in 1773 with 10 acres, 4 horses/cattle; 1774, 21 acres and 4 horses/cattle. He is perhaps the Isaac DeWitt, Sr., in the 1793 Sussex County light horse militia, third company. The name of Jerushey DeWitt appears on the 1797 membership list of the First Baptist Church of Wantage. Will of Isaac dated 28 July 1811 Frankford township named wife "Gerusha" to have one third of moveable and real estate and house we now live in. Residue of estate divided among children, John, Isaac, Ann, Caty, Elizabeth, heirs of Gerusha, Jemiah, Sarah, Lucy, and Subah. Daughter, Mary, now Janes, $1. Inventory dated 25 Jan 1813 and Will proved 9 Feb 1813. Jerusha signed by mark. At his death, Isaac left about 175 acres of land, which was all sold by his estate.
