I would love to find more info on the Pitsmans as well. I have a Sara Pitman born around 1810 who married Cornelius Long. I have searched to find out who her parents were but have only speculated that she may have been the daughter of John Pitman who shows up on the Marion County Census for 1830, 1840 and 1860. I didn't find him on the 1850 census. On the 1830 and 1840 census it shows that he has 14 people living with him and in 1860 and the age of 96, he is listed as a retired shoemaker living with a Parker family (maybe with a daughter of his). He was born in 1764 and was from North Carolina. Don't know if this helps any but so far it's all I got for a possible father to my Sara.
