In Reply to: Descendants of Charles Pitts b. c 1677 d. 1750 Surry Cty, Va. by Elizabeth Pitts of 1161

Later research (2011)of former email should see Responses:
Other than Joseph Pitts b. 1700, is there anyone who is claiming to be a descendant of Lucy Pitts c 1701, Milea Pitts c 1702 Surry Cty, Va., Mary Pitts c 1705 m. Augustine Berryman (no source but something I picked up somewhere), Levi Pitts 1720, Charles Pitts 1729, Jeremiah Pitts b. c 1726 SC, or wives of Charles Pitts b. 1677, Katherine Hunnicutt, Sarah Ann Hardy, or Elizabeth Unknown? The LWT of Charles b. 1677 was in Surry Cty, NC

Response:Joseph Pitts b. 1700 is the son of Charles Pitts b. 1677 diec 1750 and Joseph was the administrator of his estate. The ONLY known children of Charles were the two daughters named Lucy Pitts and Milea Pitts birth dates unknown, Surry Cty, Va., in his estate record and his son Joseph.

Response: Charles (1677-1750), according to family traditions ONLY, is the son of Henry Pitts b. 1645 and Mary Calloway, and that Henry, according to family traditions ONLY, is the son of Col. Robert Pitts and unknown spouse. To my knowledge, there is absolutely NO RECORD of this particular Henry Pitts b. 1645. There has been agreement that "a" Mary Calloway married "a" Henry Pitts, but which Henry, if there is a record, I have not found it.

Do you know of anyone who has done research on the Pitts in Surry Cty, Va/NC? There has been plenty research and it is still in progress in 2011.

Response:INTERESTED RESEARCHERS should go to the Pitts DNA website.

Even Charles' [1677] father Henry died in Surry Cty, Va . and was in his 70s I believe. His wife, Mary Calloway, died in Isle of Wight, Va., but I find it a bit unusual that they apparently did not own land in that area, or is there a record of where Charles b. 1677 lived there? When Charles b. 1677 died he was married to Elizabeth Unknown. His LWT was in Surry Cty, Va.

Response: Actually, from what I can tell of the copy of the handwritten record it is an estate record rather than a LWT. Research continues to try to discover WHICH Henry was the father of Charles 1677-1750.

Henry d. c1718, father of Charles 1677 also died in Surry Cty, VA and I have wondered if he moved to live with some of the relatives in Surry Cty after his wife Mary Calloway died c 1713.

Response: Still unknown which Henry is his father !

John Pitts b.c1700 brother of Charles 1677 died in Orange, Va. Don't know anything about his wife Elizabeth Gardner who was born Orange, Va.

Response: There is no proof that I am aware of that Charles 1677-1750 had brothers or sisters. Any proof of this would be most welcome.

Response: Still continuing research on the following. Anyone having proof PLEASE share! Henry b. c1664 brother of Charles 1677 I believe m. 1) Elizabeth Majors m2) Mary Smith
Mary Pitts b. c1672 sister of Charles 1677 I know nothing about her.
Elizabeth b. c1746, sister of Charles 1677 m. Richard Bagnall (parents of Julianna who m. Henry Pitts b. 1729 d. c 6 Apr 1775 Newberry Cty, S.C.), also died in Virginia, not sure where but her husband died Newport, Isle of Wight, Va. about 3 years later.
Thomas b. c1709 Isle of Wight Cty, Va., brother of Charles 1677, I know nothing.
Ann b. c1711, sister of Charles 1677 m. Unknown Driver (possibly kin to the Olive Hardy's husband she married before she married John Pitts) but I know nothing more of her either.
William b.c 1713 Isle of Wight Cty, Va., brother of Charles 1677, I know nothing else on him either.

Response: If anyone has information on any of the above, especially as far as being siblings/brother/sister I would appreciate them contacting me and providing me with a source for further researching. If someone in Surry Cty, NC/VA has published a book with this data in it, I would appreciate someone notifying me, or placing a response on genform so all may have access.

Many thanks!
Lib Pitts

Kindest regards,
Elizabeth (Lib) S. Pitts
