My gg-grandmother, Emmiline Pittman (m. George Lee Russell) was b.1874 in Pontotoc County. Her father was John Lavoiser (or Lavasur) Pittman (1851-1932) m. 1873 Mary Elizabeth "Bet" Warren. John & Bet are buried in DeLeon.
I recently received some information from a Pittman genealogy group that takes the Pittman line in Pontotoc County back even further. Everything below is unverified. If anyone sees a connection to their line and can provide more information or proof, please e-mail me at DEB2171@aol.com
