Bio and Links
Bio Photo San Dimas, California -- I am documenting our Pittman line genealogy with the passing of my father. My mother and father gathered lots of misc. info over 50 years.

I manage a German "Pittman Lines" site on, with tree lines back up to 815 years, but am now seeking information/ documentation for accuracy and to fill in the gaps; and separate legends from the facts. Exploring the connects by marriages has been amazing, seeing the expansive history of America.

Family names include: Adams, Carlyle, Conrad, Crockett, Dutt, Kanka, Eddleman/Edelmann/Edlemann, Major, Mauck, Pittman/Pitman/Bittman/Bittmann, Small, Smoots, Snapp, Trabue, Whetstone, Wiseman, Zumwalt.

On my wife's side: Farny (Farni/Farnu), Auer, Baldwin, Creakbaum, Crouse, Dietsch, Holloway, Jones, Kinch, Poelhuis, Schmitt, Warren.

I finally have some research time. As I visit local cemeteries more often, I include random graves to check to Find a Grave. If one belongs to your family, please let me know. My permission is given for the use of any pictures for genealogy purposes.

Re: Photo request.
Thank you for your time and effort in located and photographing this headmarker. Nobody knows much about my great-grandfather, since he ran off to California from Kansas shortly after my grandmother was born. Hopefully, this will build some renewed interest in learning more about who he was.

Once again, thank you.

RE: Alexander/Lucinda Carlyle
Hello Richard,
I'm glad you responded to my "flower". Lucinda (Graddy) Carlyle (1804-1887) is my interest, as I am researching the Graddy family line. Do you do research? Do you have a family tree on I'm interested in what you know of the Graddy family, and what you know of Lucinda's family? Do you know anything about her parents, Jesse Barfield Graddy and Viola Dale Graddy? I do have a bit on them. I have a copy of a record for Jesse. It's either a will, or a record of sale giving a slave to one of his children (Sad isn't it?). I think it's the record of sale. Anyway, I keep meaning to get it posted on my ancestry tree so you could see it. I relate from John Graddy, Jesse's older brother. There has not been a lot put on-line for this line of the Graddys, and many incorrectly tie them into a collateral line in North Carolina.
Looking forward to hearing from you. You may contact me through here, or my e-mail address Phone #425-257-9639, Everett, WA. Thanks! Teresa Townsell
