3. From History of Central California:
      D. Whitt was born at Gallatin, Daviess County, Missouri, April 23, 1849. His father, John Whitt, was a native of Kentucky, but emigrated to Gallatin, Missouri, in 1838, and helped build the first house after the town was destroyed by the Mormons. He purchased a farm of 800 acres near Gallatin and carried on general farming. Subject was educated at the district school and followed the farm life at home until his marriage, April 7, 1872, to Miss Mary Noah. He then rented a farm of 160 acres, but after two years the decided to try their fortunes in California, upon the suggestion of friends then living at Tulare.
He closed his business associations in the East, and in due time arrived safely in Tulare, and while looking about the country for a proper place to settle, he found employment with George D Bliss in fencing the L C ranch of 7,040 acres. He then came to Portersville and helped build eight miles of fence for R E Hyde; the fencing was made necessary by the passage of the "No Fence" law at about that time, compelling ranchers to take care of their stock. Mr Whitt followed ranch life until June, 1882, when he began buying and selling stock for the Visalia market, and being a successful buyer his business has gradually increased and he now represents leading houses in Sacremento and San Francisco, and also buys and speculates on private account, dealing in all live animals. In August, 1890, he bought four lots of the Pacific Improvement Company, south of Porterville, where he has built his home and stock corral for shipping, and he owns a stock range of 230 acres twelve miles east of town.
