John Beauregard Pitts, Sr. & Jr.
Great News! Yesterday while researching another relative I found and copied a folder of materials on Matthew Pitts in Obion Co. TN. I did not know what happened to him after 1870, but thought he probably moved to Arkansas with others. He lived in Gibson Co.However, he died in August 1873 and this was a suit for division of his property in Obion Co. among 8 heirs, 2 being my John B. Pitts and his sister Alice, both minors although Alice was married. This proves he WAS my ancestor, as I have thought for several years.
