Birth: 1762
Stephens City
Frederick County
Virginia, USA
Death: May, 1839
Harrison County
Indiana, USA

Son of Nicholas and Catherine nee Snapp Pittman (Bittmann) of Shenandoah County, Virginia. John and his first wife Elizabeth nee Mauck moved from near Strasburg, Shenandoah Co, Virginia to the Indiana territory ca. 1808 - 1809.

John filed a land patent on 194 ac in the SW1/4 Sec 31, Twp 3S, Range 3E in 1809 on which the family settled and that includes the Conrad Hottel cemetery today. The cemetery was referenced in John's Will (1835): "The farm on which I now live except three fourths of an acre including the grave yard it being the South West quarter of Section thirty one in township three South, range three east of the Second principal meridian…".

Based on this reference, I speculate that John and Elizabeth are buried in the Conrad Hottell Cemetery even though no stones for them can be identified. I further suspect that Elizabeth was likely the first buried here.

John & Elizabeth (Mauck) Pittman had 8 children. In addition to those linked below, the other two were Lawrence (b. 1787-1790) and Philip Peter (b. 1803). Their graves have not yet been located.

John's sister, Catherine, and her husband John Schneider emigrated at about the same time from Virginia and settled on the quarter-section immediately northwest. John and his sister Catherine were first cousins to David Pitman, who settled in Spencer Township.

More on John Pittman and his family is available in this online family history.
