      Revolutionary Soldiers
      John Dewitt. A Revolutionary soldier who was the first settler at Muses Bottom in 1811; believed to have been the first white settler in Grant district. He died in 1810. (Date of settlement was 1807, not 1811. . drh) His son, John Jr, is listed in Mason County Tax Lists for 1811-14 and census for 1820. There seems to have been three John Dewitts in that area of the county at that time.

      Dewitt Family

      The first settler at Muse's Bottom was John DeWitt (some of the old settlers pronounce it Doo-it), who built the first cabin, in 1807.

      Soon after, Thomas DeWitt, John Powers, Thomas Coleman, Ellis Nesselrode, and John Boso came. It is not at all certain that these parties all came the same year, but they were all among the very early pioneers.

      Where the DeWitts were from is not given, but the name recurs several times in the early history of Mill creek and Sandy, and parties of the same name are still to be found in Grant District. [1]
