Am trying to figure out the line of John Chittum/chittim born c. 1770 NC. Am wondering if you have anything that ties the NC group to the MD and or VA groups.
I find JOHN CHITTEM in Prince Georges, Maryland b c. 1825 m. Anne c. 1850
There seems to be an earlier JOHN CHITTIM who shows up down in Randolph, North Carolina marrying Susan STALEY 6 Sep 1823.
Is there a connection? Are any descendants out there researching them that can shed light on my confusion?
I find listing of JOHN CHITTUM in Rockbridge, Virginia by 1838. There are several of them with different middle initials. Does anyone know if any of them had a sibling or child named Jethro. Jethro probably had a brother named Thomas. The family is in Sumter SC before 1810-1820.
I know that Jethro Chatham/Chittom/Chittum /Chattom/ eventually Chatham was the son of John Chittom or Chittum. We suspect he is the son of JANE REESE, probably the daughter of a MARY JAMES AND WILLIAM REESE. Jethro was born in Sumter SC c. 1822. We have census data that tracks Jethro and his offspring from 1820. In fact, a Thomas Chittum was in Sumpter SC by 1810 and is probably his uncle. Don't have anything to substantiate this. Do you have anything in your research on the 1600/1700 and early 1800 branches of the Chittum's that would tie in REESES, or JAMES. Any help is welcome.
