As I understand it, one of the reasons that Thomas Twitty the elder is known to have only two sons -- John and Thomas Jr. -- and no other children is that the courthouse in New Kent Co., Va., burned a few times and records are now thin on the ground.
Does anyone know of the Thomas Twitty family church affiliation and have any of those records been checked? Certainly marriages, if not baptisms, would show up in church records -- and maybe by locating the Twitty family church -- and cemetery -- we can see if there are Twittys in the same generation as John and Thomas.
Does anyone have any other suggestions for find traces of a family if land records and wills have been destroyed?
