Seeking info on Mary Addie Pittsley, born abt. 7/18/1866 and married Charles Allen Pittsley (Charles, Alden, Job, Nathaniel, Ambrose, Roger) 11/27/1887 in Freetown, MA and later moved to Fairhaven.

My great grandfather's name is Charles Pittsley, possibly the son of Mary Addie and Charles Allen Pittsley as he was born in MA on July 16, 1903, died Oct 1982. My grandfather, Charles Frances Pittsley was born in MA on July 30, 1927 and died at our home in Summerfield, MA on July 6, 1996. We have family in the Freetown/Dartmouth/New Bedford/Fairhaven area, but as I come from Florida, I am not quite sure who is who or where they come from. Any information you could provide would be of great help, as I do not have much else to go on.
Thank You! Amy

Message should have said Charles Allen Braley instead of Pittsley. It would appear there is no relation. All the info we have is on the Braley side of the family.

who are you?

My wife is of the Braley, Pittsley and Reynolds lineage. My research started on behalf of my daughter for a school project and has grown into a database of over 2500 ancestors and growing.

Hi Dan,
read you message and wondered if your Mary
Braley was one in the same in my family.
My grandmother was married to a Frank K Pittsley
who had married earlier and had 9 children before
marrying my grandmother.
Mary Pittsley was one of the nine and she married
a Charles Braley from Freetown, Bristol Co. Ma.
Other children were GeorgeF; Eugene ; Charles P.; Russell;
Harry ;Morris ; Virginia ; Hilda and of course Mary.
I know Frank K Pittsley was b. 1 20 1879 d. 12 12 1977.
I don't have any births or deaths on the other children.
I also have a newspaper clipping of the death of my
grandmother and Mary Braley was mentioned in it.

What do you think?
You can email me at the above address.

Ellen, I have been away from the boards for a while. There were several Mary Pittsleys and Charles Braley in the Freetown area. I haven't found a Frank Pittsley in my wife's lineage.
