Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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, 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.

Joseph Gula #94391008 - Forest Lawn

Thanks so much for looking for Joseph even though he has no marker it is good to know he is at that cemetery. Since I will never make it to CA it is good to know that there are volunteers like yourself who are willing to help us.

John Fletcher Rhea's Marker
Richard Pitman,

If you get the time, please look at my memorial for my grandfather John Fletcher Rhea. I noted you found the marker for his brother George Rhea, but I am not sure John is buried in the same cemetery. If possible, please enter a new picture with the location if you ever find it on my memorial for my grandfather. I could not find a record in any of the nearby cemeteries and no one still living remembers which cemetery.
Thank you,
Roger White

Hello Sir
Regarding Charles Winston at San Gabriel..
What amazing research and info you have posted--another tidbit which I discovered last year was that Mr. Winston was also the "Constable of Puente", an area of L.A. County now known as La Puente.

Would it be possible for you to transfer ownership of his memorial to me? I am going to try and get his name added to the several various memorials that are out there for fallen police officers in the coming months.
