I, too, am searching for the Pitcher - Randall connection. My g-g-grandmother was Ellen M. "Nellie" Pitcher, but I don't really know anything else. In Ellen's daughter's (my g-grandmother's) mementos was an obituary for a John Pitcher, whose mother was Mary Randall. I'm very frustrated as I have misplaced the obit. At least I recorded names and dates before losing it.
I can't imagine why this obit would pass down to me unless John was related to Ellen somehow. But I can't figure out the connection. Any info you might have would be greatly appreciated.
