I have a Union Army belt buckle with J.L. Pittman stamped in the reverse side. This is an authenic civil war artifact. I am interested in knowing more about Mr. Pittman. What unit he served in? Did he survive the conflict?

Close- My grandfather's gradfather was in the Civil War.
He served the Union Army. He survived the war his name was
John Matt Pittman. He was from Bell County Kentucky.
I have his obituary it is very lengthy.My great grandfather was Carter Pittman drowned at Wasioto back in the late 1800s or early 1900 * - had to be before 1905. My grandfather was named after his father : John Matt Pittman like I said he served in the Union army- was a (i think Baptist) preacher.

Leonard:

I am trying to make connection with your branch of the Pittmans. I can take you back to John Madison's gr. grandfather, Samuel Pittman Sr. (1790 SC) but have no information other than that. Would like to know of Samuel Sr. children.

In the 1790 Pendleton Co. SC Census Samuel Pitman Sr. (d. 1815 Virginia or NC) and Samuel Pitman Jr. appear. We believe Lucy Williams (d. 1812) was Samuel Sr. wife. They had approx. 12 children. (I would be interested in any information you have about any of their othr children). Living near them are the Vanderpools.

The 4 known children are of Samuel Sr. are: Samuel Jr. , Joseph, Rebecca, and Lemuel. Little is known about Joseph and Lemuel. Rebecca may have married a Christopher Boston in the Watauga area about 1812.

Samuel Jr. married Keziah Vanderpool in 1787. (The Vanderpools and Pitmans are living near each other in the 1790 census). Children of Samuel Jr. and Keziah are:

1. Sterling C. H. b. Dec. 3, 1815 in Lee Co. Va. and d. March 1, 1901 in Eureka Spring, Ark. His wife was b. November 11, 1816 and d. Sept. 11, 1884. They were married in 1834 in Harlan Co. Ky.
2. Sarah 3. John 4.Thomas 5. Samuel 6. Amy 7. Jane 8. Elizabeth 9. Nancy 10. Keziah 11. Joseph (b. approx. 1807).

Joshep md. Cynthia Wilson (b. approx. 1808 in Ky). Their children were:
1. Nancy 2. Verna 3. Sally 4. Margaret 5. William 6. J.H. (Jeremiah) 7. John Madison (b. Nov. 22, 1843) 7. Rose 8 Deborah.

It appears John Madison and Malinda Hoskins were married Dec. 11, 1867 in Bell County, Ky.

I believe my ancestor was one of the other children of Samuel Pitman Sr. (perhaps Lemuel). The earliest proof of my family is in the Pendleton District of SC in 1800 near Glassy Mountain. It appears they attended the Tyger Baptist Church.
