Thanks for responding. You are right about record keeping. I had most of my Pittmans put into my ancestry.com tree and then removed them as I want to be sure it is accruate. I have found, too that the dates can be off by 2 or more years. Or folks have the right man, wrong wife or he had several and those were put onto another man with same name. It is hard to do this with the primative record keeping back then. But it is somewhat fun to put the puzzle together. I believe my Pittmans go back to Capt. Thomas1 Pittman also. Have you run into a Hannah Fielding as a wife of a Thomas Pittman. I do not believe she is in my line, but the other Pittman line. If I have the 2 different lines correct. And I just might not. I do believe that my line has Thomas Pittman b 1804-8 m Anne Coffield (Coferd) son Nathan William Pittman b 1740 m Charlotte Catherine Meis son Nathan Pittman b 1763 m Elizabeth "Betty" Etheridge son Lindsey Pittman b 1794 m Sarah Sallie Prescott son Travis Pittman b 1828 and Lindsey WH b 1835. A small story of Lindsey and Travis - Rev. Travis Pittman, a GA farmer, preached at revivals and meetings began the Congregational Methodist Church near Manor, GA. Rev. Pittman and father Lindsey "Liza" were early pioneers of So. GA coming from Robeson County N.C. by Lumberton on the S.C. border to the Appling and Ware county area.settling near Kettle Creek. A Cherokee Indian uprising in the late 1830's Lindsey served as Captain in David J Millers Company of Mounted Men from Ware County during the wars os 1838.
