I originally posted this messages a few years ago. Since then, I have found out much more about MY David Kittinger. As it turns out, my David was the son of Casper Kittinger. David married Margaret Bingaman and had at least 11 children with her. Unlike others in his family, this David was not a farmer, but was instead a tailor. He moved from PA to Amherst, NY prior to 1830, and then westward. In 1840, he was Indiana, where it appears that his wife had just previously died. By 1842, he was in Wisconsin and married to another woman named Margaret. In 1842, they had Martha L. Kittinger, my gggrandmother.
Casper's daughter, Salome, married a John U. Miller, in 1805. They, in turn, had a son, Jacob Miller. Jacob would marry and have a son, John F. Miller. The Millers would also move to Wisconsin and live fairly close to David Kittinger.
In 1866, John F. Miller would marry David's daughter, Martha, his first cousin, once removed. John and Martha are my gg grandparents. After his second wife's death, David Kittinger would live with John and Martha Miller until his death sometime between 1870-1873. David starting having children prior to 1820. Descendants of those children exist everywhere from PA and throughout the mid-west. As he was moving west, some of the children just stayed on in those states.
