Liz, I am researching my grandfather Pleasant Alonzo Choate son of Jefferson Davis Choate and Mary Francis Smith. My records show a James Choate and Louisa Smith Choate as being the parents of Jefferson Davis. I am hoping this is your James since most of the names in your history appear in mine. I have no documentation but I do have photos published on my website. Do a web search on degaljo and you'll find the Choate Photo Album.

My great great grandfather was James Columbus Witt, a brother to Sarah May Witt who married David Marion Choate.

You have more information than I do. One difference that I show from the Witt family research is that Sarah was born in 1879.
