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.

RE: Mary Mitchell files - Ivy Lawn
Hello, Richard...

Thank you for your brief reply. The Mary Mitchell 134168059 is indeed the daughter of Edward 134168127 and Julia 134167771. I actually don't know who the Mary Mitchell b. 1900, d. 1968 is. My error is that there is a Mary Petit Mitchell who was born 1813 d. 1891 who is buried with the family and is the father of Edward Mitchell 134168127. Somehow I mixed her up with Mary Mitchell 134168059. When I search on Ancestry I find a reference to Mary Mitchell b. 1813 and died 1891 BUT when I access her record I get the Mary #134168059. I believe that your original contribution to find a grave was correct but somehow I managed to edit Mary 134568059 and her relatives on to the entry for Mary b. 1813. Somehow the person # for Mary b. 1813 has disappeared, I'm guessing that when I did my editing,I somehow replaced Mary b. 1813 with information re; Mary 134168059. Mary b. 1813 is the mother of Edward Mitchell 134168127 and Mary 134168127 is his daughter.

Henry Hunt
Thanks so much for checking on the burial location of Henry Hunt. It's always a bit of a disappointment when it turns out there's no marker, but it's good to know and document. I appreciate your effort!

Betty Porter photo
Thanks so much for the very nice photo of Betty's grave marker. I really appreciate it since I live in South Carolina. Also, I sent you an email about Scotty Porter's memorial; the one you just created is a duplicate. Look under Arthur Scott Porter.
Thanks again. Diane
