4. From "Portrait and Biographical Album, Morgan & Scott County, IL. Chicago: Chapman, 1889. p. 274 in a biography of Thomas Jefferson Pitner: "The paternal grandparents of our subject were Michael and Catherine (Rubel) Pitner, natives of Rockingham, Va., and of Maryland. Grandmother Pitner lived to be ninety-five years old. The great-grandfather was John Pitner, also a native of the Old Dominion, and a soldier of the Revolutionary War. His father was Adam Pitner, who was born in Germany, near the city of Coblentz. He emigrated to America prior to the Revolutionary War, and two of his sons did valiant servicee in that memorable conflict. The fate of one was never known. Michael was in the battle of New Orleans under the command of Gen. Jackson."

"In Memoriam: Thomas Jefferson Pitner, M.D. edited by Eloise Griffith Pitner and Belle Short-Lambert, Jacksonville IL: Illinois Women's College, 1921:
"Thomas Jefferson Pitner, physician, was born in Cass County Illinois, November 17, 1842, the son of William and Catherine Price Pitner, the father being a native of eastern Tennessee, and a neighbor of General Jackson. The grandfather, Michael Pitner was born in Rockingham County Virginia, whence he moved to Tennessee. Michael's father John Pitner served with the Virginia troops in the Revolutionary War, as did his brother Adam Pitner. They came from Coblenz-on-the-Rhine before the Revolution. Michael fought under General Jackson's command at New Orleans."
