Re: blackfoot/mohawk pitchers in NY

My name is Patrick (Pat) Stewart. I was born in Watertown, Jefferson County, New York. I am the son of Orea Pauline Pitcher Stewart, daughter of Eugene Jewett Pitcher, son of Gabriel Pitcher b. April 11, 1822 d. March 01, 1904. I believe this is the same Gabriel Pitcher you were inquiring about.

From the Pitcher family records we have Abbagail C. Crosley as Gabriel's mother but no record of who the father was. Gabriel was married twice: the first was Olive Glass b. 1817 d. 1857, no date for marriage and apparently no children. His secon wife was Orea Elvira Jewett b. July 15, 1842, m. September 21, 1858, d. 1927. All the children in our Pitcher line were born of Gabriel and Orea. Eugene took his middle name from his mother's maiden name while my mother had her first name.

We have no record of any siblings for Gabriel although the family plot has a grave for Catherine Pitcher b. 1826 d. 1871 and listed as wife of Walden. There is no record of what happened to Walden.

Please contact me to whether this is a connection to your Pitcher line.

Thank you.
