Descendants of Daniel McNitt and Jane Moores

(Three Generations)

I have assigned each individual descendant an identification number. In each list of children, a plus sign (+) before the identification number indicates that further information on the child is available later in the records, under their own number.

 Full geographical names consist of three parts, separated by commas:

If the full geographic name is unknown, I show either the county and state or just the state.

 Individual entries show only numbers for sources of information. For a list of the sources, click the link below or the ones at generation breaks or the end of the chapter.

I have additional information on many lines that goes beyond what appears on this page.
