Homer Milton Pitner from Tippah, Miss. was my gg grandmother's brother. She was Martha ("Mattie") Pitner and parents were Michael (born 1818 in Tenn.)and Mary Eliza or Mary Elizabeth. I have been trying to find Mary Eliza's maiden name and a possible connection to her Indian heritage. ANY information on Michael and Mary Eliza Pitner would be helpful, and I'm happy to share info I've collected.
