The Pitts I'm researching are hiding from me!
Anyone find any of these folks, please let me know!

Lazarus Pitts (1795 SC - bef 1870 AL) m. Penelope ??? (1786 NC-bef 1853 AL)
In 1840 Lazarus Pitts is listed in Bibb County: (0-1-2-0-0-0-0-1) - (0-0-0-1-0-1-1)
In 1850 Lazarus and Penelope, John, Horatio and Susannah were living in East Side Cahaba River, Bibb, Alabama. Aaron Pitts lived nearby.

+ Unknown female, possibly Nancy? (1820-1825)

+ John T or F (1826) m. Nancy Jackson (in AL on 2 Sep 1844)

+ Aaron R (1830) m. Martha A??? (1832 AL):
+++William R (1848)
+++Dorinda (1852)
+++Bush (1853)
+++Millard F (1854)
+++H (1855)
+++John (1856)
+++ Julia (1860).
In 1850 Aaron and Martha and William were living in E. Cahaba River, Bibb, Alabama.
In 1860 Aaron and Martha, Robert, Dorinda, Bush, Millard, H, John and Julia were in Montevallo, Shelby, Alabama.
Montevallo became part of the newly formed Baker County in 1868, then renamed Chilton county in 1874.
***They are not found in 1870 in Montevallo, Shelby, AL or Chestnut Creek, Baker***

+Horatio (1831 AL) m. Susannah Elizabeth Armstrong (1826 AL) on 25 May 1850, Bibb County, AL:
+++Louisa (1851)
+++Nancy Armita (2 Jun 1853-13 Sep 1917)
+++Elizabeth (May 1858)
+++Annie (11 apr 1861-29 Mar 1904)
+++Margaret Delia Peduly (24 Apr 1863)
In 1850, Horatio and Susannah were living with his parents in East Side Cahaba River, Bibb County,Alabama. They had been married within the year. Brother Aaron was married and living close by.
In 1860 Horatio, Elizabeth, Louisa, Nancy and Elizabeth are living in Randolph, East Side Cahaba River, Bibb, Alabama. Mary Wiley,28 and son Levi M. Wiley, 4, are living with them.
The 1870 census lists Elizabeth, Ann and Peduly living in Baker County, AL. The census taker may have left Horatio and Susannah off, since there are two blank lines on the previous page.
