Descendants of Christian Friedrich Witte, Sr.


Christian Frederich Witt, Sr., and his wife, Dorothea, were born in Prussia in the early-1800’s. Their sons, Johann and Christian, Jr., emigrated to America in the 1870’s and settled in Monroe County.

August married Emmely (Unknown), Emilie Auguste Mathilde Neitzel, and Bertha Linke, and Christian married Bertha Popp. Their children, in turn, married into families such as Zinke and Wistow.

In the 1880's, both sons changed the spelling of their family name to "Witt."
