According to the book Winter/Spring, by Delmar Baxter, page 155, James Addison "Add" Tritt and Susannah "Susie" Webb had no children of their own, so they adopted Edd (apparently his name was John A. Tritt, but was sometimes called Add or Edd), and Nannie (Nancy Jane).
Ref; (book) Song of life in the Smokies, by Ella V. Costner, page 322. Ella says Nannnie (this same Nancy Jane) married Bill Baxter and "was the out-of-wedlock daughter of Harve Franklin and Sarah. Ella also says that Harve Franklin and Sarah also had a daughter named Mary, who married a Dedrick Dorsey.
When Nancy Jane "Nannie" died Brown Funeral Home records listed her parents as "ADD TRITT AND SALLIE GUNTER". Sallie Gunter was never Add Tritt's wife. When Mary Dorsey died Brown Funeral Home records also listed her parents as "Add Tritt and Sallie Gunter", and listed her sister as Nannie Baxter.1880 Cocke County Census ED 67 h/h #125
