Descendants of David MCNITT

Unlike the rest of his siblings David took the McNitt form of the surname and unlike most of them he did not move from New York to Ohio in the years immediately after the War of 1812.  The author of the McNitt and McNutt history says that his father used the McNitt name because he had been raised by his grandfather who also used that name.  That may also be one of the reasons why David did not leave New York at the same time. 

Matching up the ages of family members in the censuses and the mention in the McNitt and McNutt history that David lived in Chautauqua County, New York, two likely matches are the David McNutt at Painted Post, Steuben County, New York in 1820 and the David McNitt at Gerry, Chautauqua County in 1830.  The history, written by David's son David (1837-1929), reports that his family moved to Ohio in 1837.  In the 1840, 1850, and 1860 censuses, he is listed in Margaretta Township of Erie County (in 1840 and 1860 his surname is recorded as McNutt).
