        Text: B- James Nevitt is shown living with his parents and younger siblings in the 1776 Maryland state census. He was married May 31, 1777 in Prince George?s County Maryland, to Ruth Conn who was born about 1760 in Maryland. James and Ruth had eleven children born between 1778 and 1810. It is unclear where most of their children were born. The second child, William was born in Brownsville Pennsylvania in 1779 and the tenth child David was born in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1796. These two places are only 40 miles apart; I suspect all their children were born in one of these places or in Washington County, Penn. which lies in between. (Where James?s father, John, lived) James served in the Pennsylvania State Militia in 1781 and 1782 and fought in the American Revolution (records of the DAR). Ruth died in Ohio County West Virginia in 1810 shortly after the birth of her eleventh child. After her death, James moved the family to Kentucky; it appears that some of the family had arrived there much earlier. John (the father) died in Nelson Co. Kentucky in 1808, and William (the son) had married in Nelson County, Kentucky in 1801. James married Elizabeth Bowling Adams (the widow of Joseph Adams) in Nelson County, Kentucky in 1817. From this marriage came two more children. In the 1820 U. S. census in Bardstown Kentucky, James is shown with his wife, 9 children and 6 slaves. James died about 1831 in Kentucky. 1- Elizabeth Nevitt Roland (1778) 2- William Nevitt (1779-1848) 3- James Nevitt (1781-1836) 4- John Nevitt (1783) 5- Hugh Nevitt (1785) 6- Joseph Nevitt (1787) 7- Ann Nevitt (1789) 8- Ruth Nevitt (1791) 9- George Nevitt (1794) 10- David Nevitt (1796- 1879) 11- Ignatius Nevitt (1810) 12- Rebecca Maria Nevitt (1818) 13- Phillip Pius Nevitt (1820)
