Witt, Ervin W., M. D., son of Levi L. and Fannie B. Witt, was born in Clayton township on his father's farm, January 1, 1865. There were two sons, Byron J. Witt, the well known contractor and builder of Brownville and Dr. Ervin W. Dr. Witt received his early education in the common schools of the neighborhood and for ten years was engaged as teacher in various schools of the county. He studied medicine with Dr. H. G. P. Spencer of Watertown and graduated from the medical department of the University of Buffalo in 1897, coming to Brownville after graduating, where in the short time in which he has been practicing has succeeded in building up a fine practice, indicative of that success which will be his after a few years of hard and conscientious work in his profession. In 1892 Dr. Witt married Jennette B. Grant, daughter of Capt. Philander B. Grant of Watertown.
