Mary Sarah Bradley writes June 6, 1999:

DHDW was born on Kinderkamack Road and grew up at 683 Lotus Ave, up on the hill. I think the house or at least the property was a gift of [his mother Adaline's] father, William Veldran. [His twin sister] Dot and Gwynne's first house and where we stayed in 1952 was at 659 Lotus Ave., Oradell, NJ. Lotus Ave. Crosses Kinderkamack Road.

This is the inscription on the base of the DeWitt family marker in Hackensack Cemetery, in Hackensack, New Jersey. He is buried in Rose Hills Memorial Park, in Los Angeles, California.

This is the headstone of an old family friend.
