I am not related to these people, but have a little information because the Nolands were connected to the Pitchers. A typewritten sheet I have, which includes information on the Shipman, Harrington, Moyer and other families, has the following:

"James Thomas M. 'Good' Harrington b. ca. 1836 in MO. James enlisted in the Union Army at Westport, Jackson Co., MO, 16 Sept, 1863, becoming a private in Co. A of the 11th Reg of Kansas Volunteers commanded by Palmer on the Union side in Civil War, included serving as a scout. He was mustered out 15 May 1865 at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. He was granted pension on the basis he contracted consumption while in service. He made several trips via covered wayon with family for his health to Texas. His brother Clement settled in Texas after the Civil War. On the last trip to Texas, he became fatally ill on the way back and d. 16 Oct 1877 at Nevada, Vernon Co., MO."

"James m. 18 July 1861 at Independence, Jacison Co., MO, Sarah Ann Clark (Sarah indicates in Civil War widow's pension her maiden name was Pitcher. It is likely they were first cousins based upon the fact that Greenberry and Elizabeth (Harrington) Pitcher had a daughter named Sarah Ann and at the time of her father's death in 1854 was m. to William Clark(e)."
