San Dimas, California -- I am documenting our Pittman line genealogy with the passing of my father. My mother and father gathered lots of misc. info over 50 years.|
I manage a German "Pittman Lines" site on MyHeritage.com, with tree lines back up to 815 years, but am now seeking information/ documentation for accuracy and to fill in the gaps; and separate legends from the facts. Exploring the connects by marriages has been amazing, seeing the expansive history of America.
Family names include: Adams, Carlyle, Conrad, Crockett, Dutt, Kanka, Eddleman/Edelmann/Edlemann, Major, Mauck, Pittman/Pitman/Bittman/Bittmann, Small, Smoots, Snapp, Trabue, Whetstone, Wiseman, Zumwalt.
On my wife's side: Farny (Farni/Farnu), Auer, Baldwin, Creakbaum, Crouse, Dietsch, Holloway, Jones, Kinch, Poelhuis, Schmitt, Warren.
I finally have some research time. As I visit local cemeteries more often, I include random graves to check to Find a Grave. If one belongs to your family, please let me know. My permission is given for the use of any pictures for genealogy purposes.

Thanks for taking the time and checking for me. I found out his grave is in Lake Havasu, Arizona. I corrected the burial information.
Thank You for the pictures!

From what I can see on satellite imagery, I'm thinking it's a very good possibility that the Vance Laurie cemetery has sadly been lost to time. The newest grave was most likely in 1920 based on cemetery research done in the mid-to-late 1950s and compiled into a multi-volume reference located at the library in the county seat. Vance Laurie and Blackburn are 34 miles apart and on opposite sides of the county seat geographically. The Carlyle stone in Blackburn is obviously a replacement stone and I'm guessing family members placed it at Blackburn along with a stone for their daughter, Sarah Elizabeth (Carlyle) Pelot because their son, Claudius, was actually interred there in 1862.
Based on the original directions to Vance Laurie, it appears to be on land currently in agricultural production. However since it was listed as being on the side of the roadway, it may be possible they've left this portion out of cultivation. Satellite imagery shows an area of green space in the approximate vicinity.
I live about 400 miles south of this area but travel there annually at the end of October. This fall I will make a trip to the area in hopes of locating Vance Laurie. Since no images appear on Find A Grave, the age of the stones make it all the more important to try and find the cemetery. If I'm successful, I will upload the images I find and update the Blackburn stones as being replacements with a reference to Vance Laurie. Does that sound fair to you and your family?
Thank you for the great photos. Your time is appreciated!

May I use your picture of the headstone for John P. Leighty for my family tree?

These were the parents of the husband of my grandmother's sister. Kind of sad really that there was no marker. Thank you for all you do.
