Number of Hewitt Great Grandchildren Declining

From Don Rivara

In our April 2000 newsletter was an article about the living great grandchildren of Henry and Elizabeth Hewitt. At that time, there were 25 living great grandchildren.Eight years later, it appears there are 17 living, but some of those listed below may have passed without our knowledge.

During our research for this article, we discovered that Robert H. Tennant of Alameda, CA, a grandson of Matthew Hewitt has died. He was born 30 September 1916 and died 2 October 2007 at the age of 91.

[Mary Cooper Matheny > Elizabeth Hewitt > Matthew Hewitt > Bertha Hewitt Tennant > Robert Tennant]
