Re: PITTS Wayne County, NC
I have a Matthew Pitts b. abt. 1796 in NC that lived in Rutherford Co. TN and then moved on to west TN Gibson Co. I have a list of his children and find no Nancy or Blaney. I THINK he is the father of my John Beauregard Pitts, Sr. There is also a Matthew Pitts b. 1820 who lived near Murfreesboro and is buried on Compton Rd. there. I think he is a brother of J. B. Pitts, Sr. and the confusing thing is both Matthews had wives named Martha. The one b. 1820 m. Martha Nolan in Rutherford Co. TN, the older Matthew m. Martha unk. This family might have moved from NC along with other Pitts families or relatives.
