  • Notes 
    • According to researcher J. Kelsey Jones, writing in 1988, her date of birth is taking from a family Bible record.

      After the death of her husband Isaac DeWitt, Jerusha (Price) DeWitt removed with some of her children to Knox County, Ohio, perhaps around 1818.

      From Jerusha (Price) DeWitt's Find a Grave page, by J. Kelsey Jones:

      Jerusha purchased property 29 Apr 1820 (D:595-6) in Knox County, Ohio from John P. Lindley and his wife, Susannah, being in Section 2, Township 7, Range 14. Jerusha DeWitt of Chester township deeded (O:60) 32 acres on 13 Dec 1828 to Benjamin Pitman for $1 for "love and affection which I bear towards my daughter Jemima wife of the said Benjamin Pitman of Franklin township, in said County of Knox," containing 32 acres and 132 perches known as lot no. 3. On this same date Jerusha deeded (H:138-9) to "my daughter Susannah Dalrymple" of Marion County for $1 the southeast corner of her 1820 purchase, containing 32 acres and 137 perches known as lot 4. Also, on this same date, Jerusha deeded (M:324-5) the northeast corner of her 1820 purchase to Charles Mann for $1 for "love and affection which I bear towards my daughter Asuba Mann wife of the said Charles Mann of Marion County" containing 32 acres and 137 perches known as lot 1. Jerusha signed by mark on all land transfers. After selling these three parcels there remained 32 acres and 137 perches in the northwest corner of her 1820 purchase, which she sold (O:61) 23 Aug 1831 while a resident of Knox County to Benjamin Pitman for $120.00 and known as lot 2 (present Wayne township) in Section 2, Township 7, Range 14. Jerusha is not enumerated in the 1830 census enumeration with any of her known children (John DeWitt, Azuba Mann, Elizabeth Hazen, Susannah Dalrymple, Isaac DeWitt, or Catherine Struble) living in Ohio. Perhaps living with Jemima Pittman or another daughter whose residence has not been located in 1830. Jerusha deeded the last of her land on 23 Aug 1831.
