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.

Richard and Suzanna Dakin
Dear Richard,
I searched and found the Dakin memorial and you've created it. I was wondering if you would also include their son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren too? Are you a relative? I am not, but I've researched their deaths through my interest and research of private airplane crashes and theirs has been one of the most tragic. In the crash and deaths were also the pilot, one crew member, their eldest son, Roger(36), his wife Joan(36), plus four of Roger and Joan's five children, Alexandra(16), Zackary(15), Matthew(5), and baby Roger(5mo).
My regards, Elin

Demmitt photos
Nice photos. I'm glad you photographed both of them. I found Henry's wife's Mary obit after I had submitted the request for Henry's marker. You got the pictures anyway. Did you see another Demmitt near their graves. Their daughter Claudia Susan Demmitt died Sep 18, 2002 and I haven't yet found her burial info.

Thank you again
