Am trying to verify the following information, and would appreciate advice,
since I have done very little research on the Chitty family.
1) Howell C. Chitty was a son of Robert Chitty and Nancy Ann Free, both
buried in the old Chitty cemetery outside of Blackville.
2) Howell C. Chitty married Ellen Blume, a daughter of Darling Pinckney
Blume and Martha Baxley.
3) Did Howell and Ellen have a daughter, Elizabeth P. Chitty, born ca. 1864
who married George Jennings Bessinger? I am having trouble putting this
Elizabeth into the correct Chitty family, and have tentatively identified
her as the Emma on the 1870 census for this household.
4) Does anyone have the burial place for Howell and Ellen? I do not have
them recorded in any of my records.
Any advice and suggestions on this line would be appreciated.
