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.

Hi Willie, as of now, there's not much Y DNA data to tie Everett's line to any other line, apart from the fact that tester is certainly in the large haplogroup. There is a tester in the project we think is a descendant of Everett, and you can see him in Group A2 in the project DNA results. He has only tested to 37 markers and is on the 37-marker modal. Another tester near him in the group, 112153, I think would be a suspect for coming from this same line. He has also tested to 37 markers and is also on the 37-marker modal. Having the modal values means there is no distinctive STR marker we could look at to see evidence they're related more closely to each other than they are to the group in general. One way of getting better evidence would be to get more people in this part of the tree to get 111 markers or SNP (Big Y) results. Another way would be to look at autosomal matches, as you're doing. for ancestors in the circa 1800 range, there certainly should be some DNA matches, but they may be difficult to sort out. If you would like me to look at your AncestryDNA matches, I would do that. I might notice something interesting since I've been looking at many Pittman matches. Contact me treece at gsp.org if you wish.

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

Hi, cousin! If Isaac is your cousin, I imagine that means you know know of at least one sibling and/or his parents. I can't figure out how to email you, but my email is dahlia (at) tmlindsey (dot) com. I'm in Pensacola, and my mom and I come over to Foley to the Genealogy Society meeting every second Saturday.

HI Compared your GEDmatch number we seem to share a little over 11CM . My GED Match is A564732.

Hi Tracy, sorry to be so long in responding. I see the segment in the one-to-one matching, but you don't come up as a match in one-to-many. I can't access your family tree on FTDNA, but you should be able to access mine; it's set to public. My email is dahlia(at)tmlindsey.com. I'd love to figure out our link. I see you also have a Reid surname -- my Isaac Pittman married Mollie Stevens, whose mother was a Reid.

No connection to any of my Pittman's descended from Joseph Pittman b. 1809 Magnolia, Duplin, North Carolina, USA d. 01 JUN 1880 • Harlan Co Kentucky. If anyone is interested in comparing. Here are Joseph's gggGrandchildren's kit numbers for GEDMatch : Brad T638148, Mary T633652, Larry A169106 , Els A611033

circa 1960 This is John Matt Pittman b. 1889 Bell.Co. KY d. 1984 Bell Co. KY. with his wife Sara Jane Cheek b. 1886 Bell Co. KY d. 1963. John's father was Carter Pittman b.1870 KY d. ? ~1898 drowning from logging accident Bell Co. KY. Carter's father was John MADISON Pittman b. Harlan Co. KY 1843 d. 1930 Laurel Co. KY during his lifetime he served in 6h Regiment Kentucky Volunteers Union Army and later became a Reverend. John Madison's father was believed to be Joseph Pittman b. 1809 Duplin NC and d. 1880 Harlan Co. KY. Joseph's father is believed to be Matthew Pittman b. 1766 Halifax NC d. 1815 Mecklenburg NC and finally Matthew's dad is Elisha Pittman b. 1739 Edgecombe NC d. 1803 Halifax NC. I do not have a Y- DNA volunteer yet but I've been trying (begging/nagging) for them to consent but of course cost is always the issue.

I know of a Pittman descendant of John Matt who matches my father in AncestryDNA. Do you know of any of your Pittman male relatives who have done a Y DNA test?

John Matt Pittman (pictured above) grandson will receive his Y-DNA 37 test this week and send back in. His great grandson is on Ancestry DNA . I'm new at the group stuff. Is there a way to compare my Pittman aunt and uncle's DNA with other Pittman's or is that only on by going through all the results on the Family Finder.

Jef Treece was that connection Michael Treece to Christopher Pittman? Chris is my 2nd cousin. Michael showed shared matches with my uncle's kits( Larry and Elzie) but not me, my sis or my two children. It is why I emphasize with others to get those older family members tested because Genetic DNA transfer is random. The other treecefamily tree didn't have any matches with any of the 6kits associated with my Pittman line.

It's not yet determined how my Treece ancestor is related to Pittmans. Most likely, there's also a Wall ancestor in there somewhere. Any lead is a good lead. It could be via some other family line, though.

Just popping in for a quick message and introduction for those who don't know me. I'm a project co-admin and also a member of group A3. I'm always happy to hear from you and answer whatever questions I can. The A and I groups have made some progress with Big Y and/or SNP testing. Some of the other groups, especially B and probably C would benefit from the same. If you need any testing advice, help with interpretation, etc, let me know. You can also reach me at treece@gsp.org. If you happen to be in the Portland Oregon area, you may want to come hear me teach about Big Y, SNPs and figuring out tree branching Saturday towards the end of January. Look up the calendar on gfo.org. FTDNA's sale ends tonight, so if you're thinking about a test, it's a good time to do it. In some groupings, Y111 is the best chance at getting close matches.
