This message won't help you in your search but I thought it might be useful to know what you are up against especilly since no one appears to be responding to your requests for information. You might have trouble separating related Pitchers from unrelated Pitchers. I'm part of a large extended Pitcher family in central and western Michigan descended from Clede Pitcher/Jenny Peterson. My father was one of 12 siblings and I have hundreds of cousins. The Pitcher name appears to have first popped up in the early-1700s in Duchess County, New York. There are a lot of us in the U.S. It appears that my family has been traced back to colonial America and further back to Europe. I say "appears" because things get a little hazy due to name changes and poor records.
