the elusive William Pitman

I’ve added a new Page for this guy…
I’m a bit excited because he could easily explain the William who shows up in Edgecombe county in the 1740s. He could also be a son of Thomas Pitman who died in 1730 and is not listed as a son in his will. Not enough proof to nail him down… if this William stayed around the Blackwater River where IOW and Surry counties meet then perhaps he was a brother of that Thomas? Grrr….

see this post for a map… this is the general area where these Pitmans were living.
