hi, everyone! I am a descendant of John Hatfield and Annie Ross through their son Granville Hatfield (our family said he was twin brother of Comfort) of Sequatchie, TN. Granville's Son JOHN married Katie Shadrick. Their daughter Matilda married Levi Lankford and their daughter Mildred Married Charles Alford/Alfred (name changed) Lawson- they were my maternal grandparents
anyway-- Comfort nee Hatfield married Daniel PITTMAN.
oh and I am on GEDMATCH if you are too and connected to this line I would love to hear from you!

Good afternoon I am looking for any information on John (Frosty) Herring who married a Rosa or Roseanne Pittman in Robeson County North Carolina in 1829. What I am exactly looking for is Roseanne's parents. - Mia Herring (Admin for James)

Hello all! I have started a website that will allow us to add to the tree, correct information, add stories and sources that can verify the data. If you want to contribute let me know!
It is brand new and definitely a work in progress, but I have about 400 people on there right now. I would love to get all the Pittman and Whitehead/Whitted information in one place.

I believe I have solved my Thomas Augustus Pittman brick wall... FINALLY!! And it only took 6 years off and on. Had I only looked to the right side of the page on the 1880 census. It was the first census that listed the birth states of the parents on it. Thomas A. listed that his father was born in GA, while his mother was born in Virginia. Once I saw that, everything suddenly made sense. How unusual would it be for TWO Thomas Pittman's to be born roughly the same year with a father from GA and a mother from VA? I mean, it's a possibility, but highly unlikely. Ichabod Byrd Pittman was born in GA and Frances Jackson Stone was born in VA. They moved to Gwinnett county from Columbia County, GA around 1807ish??
There were 2 Thomas Pittman's born approximately the same time. One in Gwinnett County, Georgia (mine) and one that was born in either NC or GA. Birth state confusion due to 1 census that listed NC, but another listed GA? Most likely born in Columbia County, GA.
According to census and marriage records, 2nd Thomas lived in Taliaferro County, GA until at least 1850. He was married to Sallie King in Taliaferro County in 1826. At some point between 1850 census and 1852, probably after Sallie's death, he moved to Gwinnett County, GA. He married Lucy Bramlett in 1852 in Gwinnett county (he and his son William Thomas Pittman were actually married on the same day in 1852). This Thomas died in 1872 in Hog Mountain, Gwinnett County, GA.
If my theory is correct, my Thomas Pittman was born in Gwinnett county to Ichabod and Frances. He is referenced in Sheriff's sale papers with Daniel N. Pittman, and James Tate. Thomas A married James Tate's daughter Mary Frances Tate in 1836 in Gwinnett.
Thomas and Mary moved from Gwinnett along with James Tate to "Tatesville' around 1848. Because Thomas Pittman/James Tate and their respective families are listed in the 1850 census in McNairy County, TN.
Thomas A was a postmaster in Pickneyville, Gwinnett County (1839), GA as well as a postmaster for Tatesville, TN (1853). Tatesville became Chewalla, TN and he was postmaster for Chewalla (1858)
I believe that when my Thomas moved out of Gwinnett, and the 2nd Thomas moved in from Taliaferro County, GA the lines became crossed and people assumed they were the same person. My Thomas is always referred to as Thomas A. Pittman or T.A. Pittman. The 2nd Thomas is only ever referenced as Thomas Pittman or Thos Pittman. Never a middle initial on the docs I can find.
My Thomas died sometime between the 1880 census in Alcorn CO, Mississippi where they lived at the time. and Sept 1891 when Mary Frances died because he's referenced in her obit as having passed before her.

Just checking in to see if we have any progress on some of the Pittman lines? My cousin tested, and joined, but haven't really gotten any new info out of this group?

Is anyone here related to the Pittmans who settled around Guthrie County, Iowa, about 1 hour west of Des Moines? My paternal grandmother was Leora Pittman, and she later became a Jontz.

Here I am still looking for Everett Pittman's parents and siblings. Someone decided that his first wife Molsey was a Hester, but I cannot prove that. I have done my DNA on Ancestry.Com, but no links to Everett Pittman.

The surname Pittman is rare in Ireland. Thought the group might be interested in these images (from Ireland national archives) of indices of Pittman wills and marriage in Dublin and Cork Co. Ireland. Still trying to find a european connection to my Edward Pittman/Temperance Barker of Hall/Banks Co. GA.

I posted a photo and a little family heritage info in 2016. Now I have my 23andMe results up on GEDmatch and wanted to share that it's kit # M475817. My most distant Pittman ancestor is Isaac, b. ~1767 in North Carolina (according to the 1850 Census). He received a land grant in the Florida territory in 1829, but I'm still searching for more on his history and parentage. If anyone's looking for Northwest Florida/South Alabama Pittmans, I'd love to hear from you! - Auriette
