Deed book 5 # 91 Abner Pitman bought the land of Joseph Pitman decd. at Sheriff's sale formerly granted to Elizabeth Pitman, May 1, 1788.
Deed book 11 # 561 Abner Pitman of Maryan (Marion District) SC was son of Joseph Pitman Feb. 19, 1806
"My grandfather was John Henry Pittman, son of Biscoe. Henry Elias was his grand father, his great grand father was Joseph. Joseph's father was Abner, who was Joseph's son moved to Edgecombe county about 1738. In 1806 Abner lived in Marion, SC.
I have an orginal of Hobson Pittman's biography written by Donald Gordan. Years ago mom gave it to me, because I have been research the Pittmans at the state of NC archives. I don't know where she got it, but Hobson was her uncle.
Also there was a family bible that listed Abner and Joseph. It only had them and no spouses or children. My mom didn't know who they were. There names were just in it on a page with no reference.
I have searched for Abner, but had a hard time. The counties changed so much, and they kept going back to Va, and occasionaly to SC, buying and selling property.
On the 1800 census I found that Joseph had a male 45 and up. I feel like that was Abner. That makes him born before 1755, Hobson's bio says he was born in 1758.
I have all the Pitmans listed that I found. Edgecombe county roll 30 vol 2, micro copy 1957. Abner purchased the land of Joseph decd. at a sheriff's sale which was formerly granted to Elizabeth. May 1 1806. Deed book 5 # 91. Now I know about when Joseph died. I am still searching myself, I thought if I could get enough on Joseph, father, Joseph son, then it would help me in my reasearch."

"Abner Pittman was married to Sarah Pitt daughter of James Pitt and Ann? She was born Edgecombe Cty. @1765-7 shortly after James and Ann moved to NC from Isle Wight with Robert and Mary Bridgers Pitt and Sarah Pitt who later married Daniel Woodard. Sarah's brother Richard's granddaughter Sarah E. Pitt married Reddin Pittman. Abner is mentioned in James Pitt's will probated Edgecombe 1799.
The relationship between James, Robert and Sarah Pitt that migrated is unclear and frankly my Achilles heel. Hope this information is helpful." Joani Taylor < firstname.lastname@example.org

"I am interested in Pitman's as Sarah married to Abner Pitman was the sister to Richard Pitt which is my chain. Sarah and Abner's grand children married 2 of Richard's grandchildren also. Since I am still trying to define James Pitt's ( Sarah and Richard's father ) parents, am most interested in the naming pattern of Sarah and Abner's "several children to include more than one daughter" as the genealogist we hired suggested. Son Joseph Pitman m. Mary Weeks was the only one I knew definitely. The Emily you suggest is unknown but the William with Joseph J. Fountain as a witness is a definite possibility as he was the husband of another of Richard Pitt's grandchildren. More research need." Joani Taylor < email@example.com

"Abner PITMAN appears to have been married to Sarah PITT, daughter of James and Ann PITT of Edgecombe who moved to Edgecombe about 1766 from probably Isle of Wight Co VA. Likelihood exists that this James PITT is brother to Robert PITT who married Mary BRIDGER. Ann seems to be somehow related to Ralph WEST family. James and Ann PITT had several children: Ethelred, Richard, Mary m. Stewart, West m. Banks and Sarah m. Abner Pitman. James Pitt, Ann Pitt, Ethelred Pitt, Richard Pitt all have wills in Edgecombe County indicating the relationships.
Abner PITMAN is not my ancestor. Arthur PITT is my ancestor. Many think he was son of Robert and Mary Bridger but I am doubtful. Arthur was never named in any deeds, etc that i have seen. He lived by himself as a batchelor in Edgecombe and was never named in the administration of the estate with the other children. All of his transactions in Edgecombe are as a witness to a slave transcaction or as a buyer/seller. One of the individuals mentioned in a transaction is Abner PITMAN, likely son-in-law to James PITT, who is old enough to be either an uncle/or cousin to Arthur PITT.
Isle of Wight admin. of estate of a Thomas PITT names orphans Joseph, Arthur and Elizabeth (ca 1774). A John SMELLEY named guardian; a few years later a James PITT is named guardian. I've been trying to figure if this is the same James PITT of Edgecombe. Also posting guardian bond with James PITT in Isle of Wight were Ralph WEST and Richard WEST, who appear to have a relationship to James PITT of Edgecombe. Estate settlements of Edgecombe mention James PITT in relationship to the settlement of the estate a Ralph WEST (apparently not a resident of Edgecombe at the time). You will notice that one of the female children of Ann and James PITT was named WEST, speculation being that Ann was related to the West family; she possibly sister to richard and ralph, at this point still unproven. Here are wills-

Per my calculations Sarah Pitt PITTMAN was born 1767 or there abouts. I believe Abner and Sarah are married by 1790 as Abner appears to be married in 1790 census and to have children. He is living near James Pitt." Mary < CAESARMHS@aol.com

Have you info on the Joseph Pittman that Married Mary Edwards, on 10-9-1845? On the 1850 census Joseph has a wife Mary, living with him is a son Henry Elias and his wife Lucy Anderson, they have been married within the year. Living with them also is an Edwards female 18 years old. Was this Mary Edwards or Mary Weeks at this time? I looked back on my notes for my sister for something and I found I had Joseph married to Mary Edwards not Mary Weeks. Is this another Joseph or again another wife? What connection is the Pittmans to the Edwards? All I know is Lucy Anderson's father Micajah Anderson, was once married to a Elizabeth Edwards 12-27-1850, Wesly Pittman the bondsman. Who was the female Edwards in the house of Joseph Pittman?" Commieanne Dowdy, Dec 2001

Notes from typescript notes in a file at Blount Bridgers House on Pittman family, compiled by great granddaughter Lena Pittman Weeks - 1949.
McKajah Anderson the grandfather of Biscoe Pittman, the great grand father of Lena Pittman was a wealthy land owner - the number of acres cannot be numbered as writer does not have correct information. He made large sums of money by selling his huge cotton crops after holdings from "War between the States." He was born on the old McKajah Anderson farm, now owned by the later Robert Pittman heirs. McKajah Anderson made his will in 1879 and is duly recorded in the Edgecombe County Court House Will Book G page 545.
For some reason my great grandfather disenherited three of his children- they were Jun, Susan, and Lucy -- he also disenherited his granddaughters, Ellen and Betty and and his grandson Sip Samuel Anderson leaving them only $1 in his will. Lucy Anderson married Henry Pittman, the father of Biscoe Pittman, Susan married Frank Denton. Sip Samuel Anderson had a son named Sip Samuel he married Carolyn Pittman the sister of Biscoe Pittman. Makajah Anderson records in his will only one wife however older people say he was married three times. His first wife was Mary ELizabeth Anderson. He only left her $1 in his will. His will was recorded or made March 10th 1873 he only lived six years after the will was made. Some notation in will read as follows; "To Lawrence's church $25. To my daughter Tamsey Anne Elizabeth Anderson. I bequest the bed and coverings, a chest of drawers owned by her mother and one hundred dollars in money, a cow, and calf. To my daughter Sarah Parthenia Anderson the bed upon which I now slieep with all the coverings, my trunk, a cow and calf, and one hundred dollars in money. To my son McKajan Anderson' s children Chalres and Ada the sum of one dollars each. To my wife Mary Elizabeth Anderson --to my daughter Susan Denton to my daughter Lucy Pittman age 15 to my son John Anderson to my granddaughter Ellen WHitehead age 15, my granddaughter Bettie Anderson and to my grandson Sip Samuel ANderson the sum of $1 each. " He states further that after all debts are paid if there be any surplus that such be divide equally between my sons and dauthers as follows: Thomas, Baldy, Peter, Patrick, Joseph, Tamsey Anne Elizabeth and Sarah Parthenia Anderson I give and devise all of the real estate at my death to be equally divided as follows - Thomas, Baldy, Peter, Joseph, Tamsey Anne Elizabeth, Sarah all of the propery I divise to my son Peter Patrick and Joseph I lend to them during their lieftime and then give to their children. The property I give to my son Baldy I lend to him for life and then to this children. The property I give to my dauther Tamsey and Sarah to given to them during their life and if either die without a child, the surviing sister is to inherit her esate. if both should die without a child their estates to be equally dividied between my sons - Thomas, Peter Patrick, Joseph and Baldy. I appoit as my executors my son Thomas Anderson and H.L. Leggett.
McKajah had four girls and six sons - McKajah, Joh, Thomas, Baldy, Petere Patick and Joseph and ther girls were Tamsey Anne ELizabeth, Sarah Parthenia, Susan and Lucy. Susan married Frank Denton. Lucy married Henry Pittman, Tamsey Anne married George Carlisle. Can't find who Sarah Parthenai married. MaKah died in 1879 and is buried on their farm where he was born which is now owned by heirs of Robert Pittman. His son Joe Henry married Elizabeth Armstrong, his son Baldy married Marta Anne Armstrong -- the two brothers married the two Armstrong sisters. John married Martha Pittman the daughter of Wesly Pittman. Susan Pittman, the sister of Martha married G.M.T. Fountain and she too was a daughter of Wesly Pittman.
