I have been searching for a Willy Rose, who may have gone by the last name of Pitts. His mother, Fanny (Rose)Pitts had left my ancestor and took Willy with her to live with a John Pitts. So he may have been known or listed under that name. He died from the result of a "military brawl" somewhere in Texas in the late 1890s or early 1900's.. I cannot find any military record for him. He was born in Michigan ca. 1879. Help!!
