There was a Levi Truhite whose will was dated 10 June 1779 in Amelia County, Virginia who could have been this Levi Jr. There was a Levi Jr. mentioned as having been granted 800 acres of land in Craven County in I744. His only known descendant was a son named Joseph.

Birth date and place given as 1676 in Bath County, NC. ------- From: Ray Truitt <[email protected] Jul 2008 I just recently turned my attention to my Truitt line and Levi Truewhitt, the first ancestor from coastal 1700s North Carolina. Previously I had focused more on my ancestors of later generations. I also recently ran across your History of the Truitt Family and read that once again. You seem convincedthat the Truitts in America all descended from George Truitt, "The Immigrant." I did not notice any reference our Levi Truewhitt and his descendants. Do you think that he migrated down the coast from Virginia or Maryland and was descended from George Truitt? The idea has occurred to me also.I am collecting all the colonial period records that I can on Levi Truewhitt (as he seems to have been called). He certainly seems to be in Bath County from the beginning of it as Clerk of Court. I have seen some of his recordings in deed books and his penmanship is more legible than most. It indicatessome level of education that he probably wouldn't have received in the New World don't you think. I have Hortense Abbott's book on the Trewhitts. While she did some job compiling all the ancestors of Levi, etc , her early conclusions about Levi leave me a little less certain. He certainly commanded his own ship, the Pamticoe Adventure, up and down the coast to Maryland and Virginia hauling cargo and perhaps people to the Pamlico Sound area. Whether his sloop, as it was referred to in the records, was capable of crossing the ocean I don't know. Anyway, he certainly was a man of many talents nevertheless. I am really stumped as to where he originated from and when. Have you given this any thought? I would be interested in what you think about his origins. The Quakers were a very real factor in the history of that era and I keep looking for an indicator that he may have been one, but nothing says that he was anything more than a Dissenter against the Crown.
Note: Leslie Dryden says: " He was apparently a Quaker and involved in some early disturbances agai
