My Condit Family
In my search for family information, the Condit family has been the easiest to find.
There are so many family trees with the Condit family already listed..
However I wanted to add our family info to history as well.
I won't add all the Condits to this site due to there so much info already out there,
but I will add how we descend in the Condit Family Tree.
The first Condit was actually Cundict. There are many different spellings listed in history.
John Cundict (Condit) was the first in America.
Born 1653 in Wales or England and died 1713 in Newark, New Jersery.
His unknown wife died appx 1676/1677 in Great Brittain.

John and Peter came to America around 1678.
John's second wife was Deborah. Unknown DOB, died 10 Dec 1761 in New Jersey.
John & Deborah had one son named John who died as a minor.
