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: Frederick Emroy Dane
Wanted to say thank you for the transfer. Also, thanks for taking the time and photographing his grave marker.

I have a cemetery at my location and only 37 are posted. I went back and started taking pictures, and are trying to make connections to the local families that have history in the small town I live in. Time is always against us!

I stayed up all night trying to find my grandfather's military photo with my dad. I found it and posted it. Now other family members can view it. My Aunt Kathy and I (immediate family) are the only family members on Ancestry and she is 81.

Again, can't thank you enough for your efforts! Sincerely, Lorraine DANE Boyer

Thank you so much for taking time to take the picture. That was a great idea identifying the plot as no marker. I have done several requests myself and just told them no marker.
I really appreciate your contribution it is very helpful and gives you a feeling of visiting or honoring the dead from afar. Patty
