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.

Thank you so much for the photos!
They were definitely mother and daughter, which is what I had thought,

Thank you for attempt to photo marker. She was wife of Donald Brand and perhaps family hasn't purchased a marker for her.

Dear Richard,
Thank you so much for your fast updates. Because of you I had the documentation to motivate the main Trustee to get the headstone before my Aunt was left in an unmarked grave.
Thank you for your promptness.
