. author: Michael D. Nestor, email: email@example.com
. John Hewitt,3 (Joseph,2,Joseph,1)
. b 1733 Pa; d Sep 1812 Botetourt Co, Va. The exact spelling of the last name is not certain.
. m Elizabeth Adams, b ca 1738, d after 1812. (one source states m ca 1752 Albemarle Co, Va)
. John was a blacksmith and funeral home operator.
. 1810 Botetourt Co census, p 629, John Hewitt Sr, 00011-00011-00. (two other Hewetts listed adjacent - but illegible)
. 1812, Sep: Botetourt Co: John Hewett, dec, inv returned.
. Note: No evidence given that the above data for John Hughett/Hewitt/Hewett are all for the same John. As seen below there were
. quite a number of John Hughett/Hewitt/Hewetts in Virginia. The internet is full of the exact claim for William E. Hughett's
. parentage, all apparently copied from one source, so not proof of the claim.
. 1. James Hewett, b 25 Nov 1752 St Anne's Parish, Albemarle Co, Va.
. 2. Thomas Hewett, b 10 Jul 1757 Fauquier Co, Va.
. 3. William Hewett. Prob the one who m 30 Dec 1779 Fauquier Co, Va to Catherine Edmonds.
. I have no proof that he is the son of the above John Hughett, or if he is the same William who was born ca 1758 Pa and m
. Catherine Edmonds on 30 Dec 1779 in Fauquier Co, Va, as claimed by Ref 2, below. He is listed here for reference purposes
. only. His claimed birthplace of Pennsylvania is inconsistent with this family listing, since the others are all born in Virginia.
. As seen below, there was a William Hewett in Fauquier Co in 1810 who could be the one who m Catherine Edmonds, but is
. definitely not the William E. Hughett of Montgomery/Floyd Co, Va. Also, more significantly, an older John Hughett was
. listed next to William in the 1810 Montgomery Co census, and was likely his father, but who was not the above John Hewitt
. who was in Botetourt Co in 1810 and who d there in 1812.
. 1810 Fauquier Co, Va census, p 357, William Hewett, 10010-10010.
. 1820 census, this William not located, although there were a William Huett/Hewit in Norfolk Co and Randolph Co, Va, in
. addition to William Huett in Montgomery Co, Va, who was the above William E. Hughett.
. The following is not likely the same as the above William Hewett, despite being claimed so by Ref 2 below.
. William E. Hughett, b ca 1760 Va, m Elizabeth Goad.
. Lived in Montgomery Co, Va. He is probably the s/o of another John Hughett who was living in Montgomery Co in 1810, listed
. next to William.
. 4. Martha Hewett, b 20 Feb 1760 Fauquier Co.
. 5. Lucy Hewett, b 3 Feb 1762 Fauquier Co, m 5 Aug 1794 Fauquier Co to William Corum.
. 6. John Hewitt, b 14 Nov 1763, d 19 Dec 1844 Botetourt Co, Va, m 19 Nov 1794 Botetourt Co to Margaret Hewitt, d/o Pat-
. trick Hewitt. (poss John's 2nd wife)
. 1810 Botetourt Co census, p 628, John Hewitt, 12001-21110-00.
. 1833, Feb: Botetourt Co: John Hewett filed for Rev War pension.
. a. Polly Hewitt (d/o John), m 12 Aug 1807 Botetourt Co to Rhineholt Ovenchain.
. b. Betsy Hewitt (d/o John), m 22 Mar 1810 Botetourt Co to George Lantzford.
. ? c. Reese Hewitt, m 25 Jul 1810 Botetourt Co to Polly Fore, d/o Phillip Fore.
. 1810 Botetourt Co census, p 633, Rice Hewet, 00100-00100-00.
. 7. Frankey Hewett, b 1772, m 15 Oct 1792 Fauquier Co to John Huffman.

. 2. Dwayne A. Hughett's website:
. Note: The evidence linking William E. Hughett of Montgomery Co, Va to this family is very questionable. Some of the
. this sites' linkages claimed for the Hughett family of Scott Co, Tenn are incorrect and apparently tacked on with no
. evidence, but just incorrect assumptions easily disproven by the census records. The evidence that the John Hewitt
. from Pa that married Elizabeth Adams and moved to Albemarle Co, Va and later to Botetourt Co, Va isn't given and
. is likely an unwarranted assumption. As seen below, there were a number of John Hughetts in Virginia, but the
. father of William E. Hughett of Montgomery/Floyd Co is likely the John Hughett living next to him in 1810.

. This source added James, b 1752, and gave birth places for James, Thomas, and Martha as St Anne's Parish, Albemarle

. bility of confusion:
. 1785, 3 Sep: Montgomery Co: John Hewitt was convicted of horse theft.
. 1786, 24 Jul: Montgomery Co: Sarah Huet, wid of John Huet, m Murdock McKenzie.
