Autrey Wells Pittman never married and devoted his life to farming in Cobb County Georgia. In 1920 he and his father farmed 91 acres in the Howells District of Cobb County. During that time, his sister Rena married into a neighboring farm family, the Jenkins, and moved there with her husband James Kenzie Jenkins. Brother John Richard also lived on the farm, but worked as a merchant.
After the death of his father Albert Singleton in 1921, Autrey inherited 48 acres of the Family Farm which he continued to farm until his death in 1934. In the 1930 Census he is listed as Head of House with his mother Sarah Jane Pope Pittman age 76. She preceeded Autrey in death just one year before in February 1933.
Autrey Wells Pittman was the great grandson of Isaac Howell, and is buried in the Howell Family Cemetery near his parents, siblings, grandparents and great grandparents.
