WooHoo Fites.......... My dad was Eugene A. Fite from Wingo, Kentucky, he had several brothers and sisters... Art, Charlene (Helen), Ima, Paul, James and Boyd. I belive Art and Charlene are the only ones still living. I had two brothers, Harold now deceased and Eugene A. Fite, II. I really don't have anymore information but would love some if anyone out there can provide any.

Hello Troy,
I've been researching Tenn. Fites (have a copy of THE book). My lineage is Johannes Vogt, John Fite, Thomas, Thomas Jefferson, James Henry, Charles Roach Fite, my Grandfather of Atwood, Carroll Co, TN. It's been a real puzzle since so many male Fites share the same names.
Would you, and any other Fites, be interested in forming a surname group as part of the DNA project through and/or National Geographic Society Genographic Project?

Hi Troy, I need to clarify the comment on the Navy granddaddy, his dad, and his dad and before him were all Army. I was compelled to mention the 'Navy tradition' because you also served there. Keep in touch, Pat

I accidentally stumbled across this blog, and I hope it leads to something. My name is Karissa Fite and I'm trying to find out more about my family. I don't know anything about my dad's real dad. All I know is his name is Bill Fite, he lives in Tennessee, and he has 3 boys, my dad Mark and my uncles Stacey (born Walter) and my Uncle Wes (Wesley) Fite with my grandma Donnell Wessell. I know he is remarried, but that is it. I want to know more about my family. If any one has any idea who this man is or how to reach him, please let me know. I'm trying to research my geneology but its hard to do when you know nothing of your grandad =[

Thank you.

If anyone can help me please email me at

Hello Troy! I'm Jacqueline (Fite) Feagin, daughter of Ricky Darryl Fite (son of John Earl Fite) from North Carolina. I'm a newbie to all of this, but I am very interested in our ancestry. I know that we're descended from Johannes Vogt, but I'm wanting to know more. My grandparents passed away a few years back (my Grandmother was really into gathering info on the Fite Family Tree, but didn't leave any records) and my father doesn't know much about it. My husband is in the Army and we were recently living in the Hessen-Kassel area of Germany (Hanau), which peaked my interest in my ancestry. Our daughter was actually born in Hanau! (Much to her Grandfather's delight)How, and where, can I find out more about my direct lineage? If you can give me any extra info, my email address is:

Thank you for starting this blog!

Hi Troy!
My name is Ellen Fite, from Cedar Park, Texas. My father changed his last name to Fite after his mother re-married to Paul Wilson Fite II. All we know on my dad's family is that his step-father's father's name was Paul Wilson Fite, and that his step-father's mother's name was Eleanor. We also know Paul Wilson Fite II was born in Detroit. Not sure yet if our family runs back to Tennessee or not yet. Sort of hit a dead end... If you know any further information, please e-mail my mother at Thank you so much!

I have had to change the settings on this blog. I set it so everyone must register before posting. It seems that I have attracted a few too many brainless marketers who think that all they have to do is leave some meaningless compliment about the blog and then post their links to whatever they are selling or promoting. Those days are now in the rear view mirror.
Best regards,
