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.

Thanks very much for taking the time to photograph John's gravestone. It's a long way to L.A. from where I live, so I doubt that I would ever have had he opportunity to take the picture myself.

This is a nice community service that you are doing. I'll pay your kindness forward.

Thanks again,

Steve Barneby

Hi Richard,

Thanks for attempting to get a marker photo. I'm going to have to call the Forest Lawn records office. There is a distinct possibility there is in fact no one interred there and their website has a spurious entry on it.

Sorry to have wasted your time, hopefully you were able to get something else done while you were out there, I would guess you did ..
