Looking for HITT of Alabama
Well, I've been looking for this guy for about 10 years now. Where to begin? I THINK he (Maberry HITT) was born in 1823 in Laurens County, South Carolina (cannot confirm). I got that info from someone else's research. The first time I find him for sure is in the Civil war. I've found the actual documents---he was in the 51st partisan rangers (calvary) formed in Alabama. Before the war, he had married Arena Crouch from Muscogee Co, GA (again, info is from other people) and had 2 or 3 children. Then she died and after the war he marries again...Clara Copelandfrom Jefferson County, AL. They move to Blount Co, AL ad have children, one of which was my ggrandfather, Pinkie H. Hitt. I have looked at the Blount Co courthouse...cannot find when he died. Clara is buried at Mt. Tabor cemetery in Blount Co near where I live, (I've seen her tombstone, it reads, Clara, wife of Maberry, died 1892). No help there. Maberry is not beside her. Two spaces down there is a cement block---maybe thats him. Anyway---- Someone please help!!!!
I cannot find any info about the Hitt family-almost none being in this county---except where he paid taxes. How do I find where he was born and who his parents were?
Any info is much appreciated---I have more info, will post more later if anyone is interested.
