Bio and Links
Bio Photo David T Pitt is the son of William H Pitt, Sr and Olivia Talbert Pitt, grandson of Thomas Luther Pitt and Joy Scogins Pitt and Robert B Talbert and Olive R Talbert, great grandson of William H Pitt and Eliza Peden Pitt, great great grandson of Henry I Pitt and Susan Catherine Pitt, the great great great grandson of Robert O and Sally Hall Pitt, and the great great great great grandson of Henry and Zilpha Coleman Pitt.
I recently began searching for our ancestors with my brother Dr. Phillip R Pitt. Our journey has been one of joy and enlightenment. We have visited grave sites, home places, business sites and more and uncovered an amazing story of how the Pitt family progressed from Virginia to North Carolina to Kentucky and then to Tennessee.
We have a history rich in military service back to the revolutionary war, civil war, and WWII as well as a background of good, hardworking farmers and merchants.
The fun has not been the destination but the journey. Thanks to my brother Phil!

Bass Cemetery
I found that Bass Cemetery is at Bell and Commerce Road in Lebanon. I can find Commerce Road but not Bell on Mapquest. Shelah Waters who is buried there is my 4x great grandfather. I saw your message about wanting to know where the cemetery was located. I hope this helps. I live in Texas or I would go hunting for it myself.

I would be happy to email you a copy of the letter written in 1941 to my Great Grandmother in hopes that you can give me any suggestions.

Common ancestor
Mr. Pitt, With all the ancestry research you have done, I'm wondering if you would be able to clear up a generation problem I have. The problem comes from an old family letter written about the parents of Henry and Susan Catherine Pitt, which conflicts with everything I have found online.

Susanne from Berlin
Suanne was best friend of my sister Regine and she married a David.T.Pitt. I believe they went to Montana .She must be over 70 now if still alive . You are the only one I could find with that name , so if you are perhaps her son I would appreciate an answer very much

RE: Wilson Co cemeteries
Mann is at 3145 Belotes Ferry, Jolley at 3315 Belotes Ferry, according to topo maps (not on property maps). Both were transcribed by Cutrell, both on private property, and neither is visible from the road, as far as I can tell.

Smith is on the south side of Flippen Rd, also transcribed by Cutrell, but the address is 150 Belotes Ferry since one corner of the surrounding property touches Belotes. Property map shows it at 36 18.260'N, 86 19.386'W.

Skunks 1 (by default), me 0.

RE: Wilson Co cemeteries
David, sorry, I completely forgot to get back to you on this. It was just an FYI that the Jolley and Mann family cemeteries on Belotes Ferry, and the Smith cemetery on Flippen Road (plus one other the name of which I haven't identified) are all on private property.

If you decide to pursue any photos requests for them and want the locations, I can send that to you. However, since not planning to visit I've had no reason to search names of current property owners, but can do that quickly online if you wish. Same for the Bass cemetery beside US 70 in Watertown.

And Amen to waiting for winter! If it ain't the ticks and chiggers, it's the briars, brambles, and snakes. Have fun at some mown ones this summer!

Bass Cemetery, Watertown
Here's another. Bass Cemetery is fairly easy to see from the road, but overgrown and a better fall or winter visit. I'll submit a map, but if you want to take a look before that gets added, it's at about 36.095122, -86.150244. --H
