Thomas Augustus Pittman was born in the fall of 1808 in Columbia County, Georgia where the Pittman name held a measure of historic and notable significance. He was the great-grandson of Rev. Daniel Marshall, who established the first Baptist Church in Georgia. He was the grandson of a Revolutionary War Patriot and wealthy land owner with considerable political influence.

His father died young leaving Thomas as the head of the family that consisted of his mother, Francis Jackson Stone and three younger siblings..Rene Marion, Selina Ann and Joseph Marshall Byrd Pittman.

He married at the age of 17 to Sarah 'Salley' King from Taliaferro County, Georgia. Thomas and Salley had eight children between 1826 and 1852 when Salley died from what is thought to be from complications of childbirth along with their eighth child James.

Shortly after, Thomas married Lucy Ann Bramblet of Gwinnett County, Georgia. Lucy bore Thomas seven more children, five daughters and two sons. Four of his sons served in the Civil War with one son, Asa losing his life at age 20. After his death, Lucy stayed in Gwinnett County for the remainder of her life, another 28 years after her husbands death.

Although his life was short, his legacy is long.
