In Reply to: WILLIAM PITCHER OF WISCONSIN by bradley Moody of 972

My great great uncle, Homer E. Pitcher typed a hand-me-down history of the Pitcher family in 1936 for his newborn granddaughter Mary Evelyn. In one area of his 70 page dialog he mentions his father and mother were married when the hisfather was 21 and his wife (mother) was 17.
He squotes "..after they were married they moved into a little log cabin in Southern Wisconsin....They had two children, little Jacky and Belle. He writes of his father joining the 74th Illinois Volunteers in the Fall of 1864. He quotes numerous stories of the Civil war. If this sounds like it could be related let me know. We have several William Pitchers in our family. My father was William Pitcher and was named after "some distant relative" according to my Aunt Anna Pitcher that was born in the 1890's. Hope we can help. Sincerely, Kenneth D. Pitcher
