Susan, Thank you so much. This changes much in what I was researching. Here are the similarities. George Addison (Rose)Pitts, b. ca.1868 in Negaunee Village, Marquette, Michgan. The two last surnames came about because my g. grandmother Francis "Fannie"(Marks)Rose left my g. grandfather Andrew J. "Wiley" Rose and moved in with a John Pitts and took some of the Rose children with her. George took the Pitts name and I could never find him again. This George Pitts, you supplied information on, is obviously not the same as my relative, but the area, dates and father's name all are comparative. However the mother's name just doesn't compute. Thanks again.
