Does anyone have a marriage between a Pitner and a Cusick prior to 1815 in their family line? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello,

What Pitner branch are looking at. My grandfather was John Cusick Pitner. To date I have not found out why the middle name was Cusick other then some relatives telling me that they thought there was a Cusick relative. Unfortunately I have not been able to trace the Pitner line past my 3rd third great grandmother Becca Ann Pitner. Family lore has it that Becca had James Pitner out of wedlock however I have not found anything to substansiate that claim. The line goes:

Becca Ann Pitner
James Pitner
William Howard Pitner
John Pitner
Bill Pitner (my father)
Keith Pitner ( me)

Hi Keith,
Thanks for the reply. Actually, I was just hoping there even was a Pitner-Cusick connection somewhere. In short, back in the early 1800's, one of my father's male ancestors (an Osmun) married a Pitner. This occured in Pennsylvania. Years later, my grandfather was born, also in Pennsylvania, and was named Albert Cusick Osmun. Now it occured to me that in tracing the Osmun name back to the 1700's, I never came across a Cusick. So, my working theory is that the Pitner relative must have been related to a Cusick somewhere along the line in order for my grandfather to inherit the name. Do any of your Pitners some from Pennsylvania? My working theory isn't much to go on, but I'd sure be interested in knowing where your grandfather and his line are all from.

Rhonda, my ancestor, John Pitner, lived in Pennsylvania in the early-mid 1700s. There seem to have been two John Pitners in PA at that time -- 1) the son of Lambert Pitner and 2) my John's family. I have never been able to pinpoint his parents or where he came from. The will of Elizabeth Pitner Maxey (widow of Edward Maxey) stated John's wife was Barbary Ricker, of Philadelhia. Later this John and Barbary Pitner deeded land to John Nave in Virginia. We know that John and Bargary Pitner had a daughter, Elizabeth, who married Edward Maxey. After their stay in Virginia all of my Pitners moved south to Tennessee and Georgia.

I'm sorry that I don't know a Cusick connection for you. Wish I could help you.

Marty,
Thanks for your great reply. I too wish I had a Cusick connection for you. Ah, those elusive Cusicks! I'll just keep on chipping away at this and possibly someday I'll find something. Thanks again for your Pitner information. Lambert Pitner sounds so familiar that I think without checking my papers that it is the family my Pitner came from.

Marty,

You mention that your Pitner branch ended up in Tennessee. Do you have a Becca (Rebecca) Ann Pitner in any of your files? I have hit a brick wall on this one. I can go as far back as my 2nd great grandfahter who James Pitner who married Ellen Thomas. Family lore has it that James was born out of wedlock to Becca Ann. I can find to nothing to prove or disprove this theory. The only record of Becca Ann I can find is that of her marriage to John Baker in 1865. Any help you can provide would be great.

Thanks
Keith
