It's been years since you posted this, and you probably already know, but I can confirm that you are descended from Dr. Franklin Ruble Pitner and his wife Sarah Ridgeway. I know what became of all their children except for the youngest, Sarah b. 1869 who cared for Franklin after mother Sarah died in 1888. She was 19 years old, and would have been about 43 when he died in 1812, just shy of 100 years old. She would have inherited photos and other family mementos, so I'd love to know if she married, or where she went to live after his death.

Eleanora died as a child. Charles married but had no children. So all the descendants are from John Lloyd, William Franklin, and Homer Wingate.
