Son of Joseph Tyler & M. Louisa Pittenger (1870 Victor, NY census)


From the Citizen-Advertiser, Auburn, NY, Saturday, June 17, 1939
D. D. Pittenger, Former Resident Of Auburn Dies
Word has been received by friends in Cayuga of the death Sunday in Rochester of Durfee D. Pittenger, a former resident of Cayuga and Auburn. Mr. Pittenger was apparently recovering from a prolonged illness when he was suddenly stricken critically on Thursday, and death followed Sunday morning. He is survived by his wife, Grace Steele Curry Pittenger, and two daughters, Mrs. Harold Bowman of Rochester and Mrs. Hazel Miller of Spencerport, also by three grandchildren.
Mr. Pittenger went to Cayuga in 1892, and during the time of his residence there was a telegrapher in the New York Central Railroad office. Early in 1900 he removed to Auburn where he was employed as a draftsman by the Mcintosh & Seymour Corporation. While in Auburn Mr. Pittenger built a home at 61 Chedell Place, which he sold upon his removal to Rochester, where he had made his home for more than 30 years. He was a retired employee of the Eastman Kodak Company. All through his adult life Mr. Pittenger cherished as a hobby amateur photography, and his enthusiasm in the pursuit of this pastime was equaled by a genius for artistic work. He was the recipient of many prizes for outstanding entries in nationwide contests in which he took part.
