In Reply to: Re: Thomas W. Stitt--MI and IL, 19th century by Kurt Hadden of 407

Hi Kurt, I have just started researching Andrew Stitt. He is not my direct line, but his first wife was Rhoda Inman. My Inmans have been real difficult to find anything on so I'm following any trails I can pick up. Andrew's family is connected to my Inmans through marriage in several ways -- they are connected not only through Andrew's children, but also through other connections to the Gass, Arnold, & Townsend families. I would love to have the information from the notes you have (or a copy??!!!). I only started researching Andrew and Rhoda and their children yesterday, but below is what I've found so far (from a variety of sources):
Descendants of Andrew Stitt
Generation No. 1
       1. Andrew1 Stitt was born Abt. 1790 in Nova Scotia. He married (1) Rhoda A Inman 1812 in NY. She died September 03, 1835 in Washington Twp, Macomb Co, MI. He married (2) Sarah Bet. 1835 - 1838. She was born Abt. 1808 in NY.

Notes for Andrew Stitt:
He came to MI from NY in 1827. Living with him and his family in 1850 was James H Rose, age 52, born in NY.

Notes for Rhoda Stitt:
I don't know if Rhoda is a daughter of Andrew and Rhoda but she is listed with Andrew in the 1850 census as Rhoda Walker age 40. I think she is because of her name, age and birthplace but it's conjecture at this point.
