Charles Byrns Modesitt was a physician, businessman, and one of the first settlers in Vigo County, Indiana. He was born in 1784 to Charles and Frances (Byrns) Modesitt in Prince William County, Virginia where he attended Prince William College. Modesitt married his first wife, Rebecca Welton (1788-1830) on November 15, 1812 in Virginia and they had five children, including Caroline, George, James A., Frances Elizabeth (1813-1903) (who married Chauncey B. Warren and had 11 children), and Welton Morgan Modesitt (1815-). Dr. Modesitt and his family moved to Ohio in 1814, then on to Fort Harrison, Indiana in 1816.
