Dee:
My husbands family names include Pitner. The ones we are connected with came to probably Bucks Co., Pa. in late 1600's or early 1700's. John Pitner (Buietner??) with wife and infant son, Henry, came about the time the Huegenots left from the River Rhine area. John died and was buried at sea. Henry grew to manhood, married and had at least 3 sons who fought in the REV. War. Two supposedly died and one survived. From this son, came Michael who married a Ruble. They lived in Virginia and moved to Wilson Co., Tn. about 1800. From their to Illinois. Wilson Pitner was one of their sons and he was a circuit rider who eventually came to Wash. and Oreg. He died in the vicinity of Spokane, Wash. One of his daughters, Sarah, married James Washington Paul. They had a very large family and Sarah was postmistress and ran a boarding house along the trail near Rose Lodge, Or. It was on the map at one time as Pitner, Oregon because of the post office. If you think we are connected, let me know and I can send you more information.

I am just starting out on this search for the Pitner Ancestry. I have only gotten back to my grandparents, so any details or ideas on how to extend this search would be helpfull. My grandfather was Leonard Wilson Pitner, born 1897 in Yakima, WA. My grandmother was Grace Holden, Born 1901 in Yakima, WA. My Father is Vearl B. Pitner, born in 1927 also in Yakima, WA. I was born in Bakersfield, CA in 1949.
If you have any information please let me know.

Thank You,
Mike Pitner

MICHAEL, I HAVE RECENTLY MOVED AND WILL HAVE TO UNPACK THE INFORMATION WITH NAMES AND DATES THAT I HAVE ON THE PITNER NAME. FROM MY INFORMATION THERE WERE THREE BROTHERS THAT CAME TO THE US FROM BOHEMIA. I BELIEVE TWO WENT TO CANADA AND THE THIRD BROTHER SETTLED IN NEBRASKA. THAT IS WERE MY FATHER AND GRANDFATHER WERE BORN. EVERY PITNER IS RELATED IN SOME WAY. I MOVED TO COEUR D'ALENE 12 YEARS AGO AND DISCOVERED A PITNER HERE IN TOWN THAT IS A SPITTING IMAGE OF MY UNCLE. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET HIM AND WE DISCOVERD THAT OUR GRANDFATHERS WERE COUSINS. THEIR IS A MAN IN FORT COLLINS, CO THAT HAS A MENS CLOTHING STORE NAMED "PITNERS CLOTHING". BY THE WAY I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN COLORADO AND ALL OF MY IMMEDIATE FAMILY LIVES THERE. WHEN I FIND MY INFORMATION I WILL PASS ALONG TO YOU NAMES AND DATES. SORRY THIS SO VAGUE, BUT I CAME ACROSS YOUR MESSAGE AND HAD TO RESPOND.

IF I CAN GET YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS, IT WOULD BE MUCH EASIER TO GET YOU THE INFORMATION AS IT IS SEVERAL PAGES LONG.

I'M DEBRA@CET.COM

I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON.

I have info. on the original Pitner family
that in the late 1600's came to Pa. The
father, John, died and buried at sea. Baby,
Henry with mother supposedly lived in Buck Co.
One of the descendants was Michael Pitner who
married Catharine Ruble and in 1800 moved
from Rockingham, Va. to Tn. They had a large
family and in early 1800's moved to Illinois.
My husbands gggrandfather was Wilson Pitner, a
Episcopal Methodist Minister in Oregon and
Washington, died in Spokane, Wn. area. Does
this ring a bell?

Ruth,

I would be interested in any info you may have with regard to any Pitner's of the East Tennessee area. I am having a lot of difficulty trying to trace my Pitner ancestors. Any help would be appreciated.
