Information on Robert McKittrick

Information from McKittrick Family Website:

My father, James Duane McKittrick of Groton, SD passed away from colon cancer in February. His brother Dale McKittrick passed away in 2004 from lung cancer. My aunt Joyce (Dale's wife) has been working hard with dad's cousin June Swanson to put together the history of the descendants of James Wallis and Mary (Young) McKittrick. James Wallis (born in 1855) is my great grandfather. Joyce traced the family line back to Robert McKittrick born in 1735 in Virginia (died 1795 in Harrison County, Kentucky; children - Robert, John, William, James, Sarah, Margaret, Isabella and Jane); Robert McKittrick born in 1754 in Virginia (died 1824 in Dearborn County, Indiana; children - David, Jane, Robert, John, Rebecca, Nancy, James and William Harrison); James McKittrick born in 1805 in Kentucky (died 1850 in Ripley County, Indiana; children - Robert W., David, James and Jarvis); Robert W. McKittrick born 1830 in Indiana (died 1908 in Jasper County, Iowa; children - John William, James Wallis, Mary M. and Martha Jane). Then came by great-grandfather and his brother John William (Willis) McKittrick (born in 1853; died in 1892 in Marshall County, Iowa). John had 5 children (Nellie, Eddie, Robert, Leffie and Nettie) and James Wallis had 7 (James Willis [Bill], Alvy Bertis, Della Elenora, John Connord, Wesley Thurman, Robert Leroy and Glen Dewey [my grandfather]) and then came all the rest of us, including my grandson who is now 9. We're having a McKittrick family reunion on July 3, 2005 in Bristol, SD so if any of you find that you're interested in finding out more about your long last relatives (as I'm sure we're probably related somewhere along the line), send us a note. Joyce's e-mail address is If any of you have ideas about how we could put the family history she's put together on a website, that would be great to know as I'm not real web knowledgeable and I'd like to help her out and get the info out there for all to see.
