Not my family line, just sharing.

"JOHN L. PITTS is a native of Jacksborough, Campbell County, Tennessee, born June 22, 1819, of Welsh-American lineage, son of ABIJAH and MARY (GAYLOR) PITTS. MR. PITTS was only eight years of age when his mother died, and his father died in 1840. While yet in his infancy, his parents removed to Washington County, Virginia, and from the subscription district school in that county he received his education. In 1834, the family moved to Jessamine County, Kentucky, and from there moved to Mercer County, the same State. The early life of MR. PITTS was spent at shoe-making, working on a farm and milling. He was married, August 27, 1846, to MISS MARY HOCKER, of Lincoln County, Kentucky. This union had one child born to it, RICHARD G., who is deceased. MRS. PITTS died July 20, 1848. He was married, September 29, 1849, to MISS LUCY ANN CHRISTOPHER, of Bryantsville, Kentucky. Four children have been born to them - ANDREW T., SARAH I., WILLIAM A., and DELITHA A. MR. PITTS left the old Kentucky home and settled in Big Creek Township, this county, September 28, 1853, and the next spring he moved to West Point Township, and there remained until 1863, when he came to Princeton Township and settled on Section 31, where he still lives and owns a good and well-improved farm. He is a member of the Baptist Church, and is, and has always been, a true Democrat."
