  1. I am in the DAR’s having my ancestor as Rev. Samuel
    Pittman. I have only learned recently that his wife
    Lucy family’s name was Williams. That her father was
    William Williams and his wife was Elizabeth. Do you
    know about the father and mother to Lucy. I would appreciate knowing more.
    thank you,

  2. Do you have any info on Samuel Pittman who married Lucy Williams
    and their family. Also does anyone know where Lucy Williams Pittman is buried?

    • Hi Victoria, Lucy Williams was the daughter of William & Elizabeth Williams. She was mentioned in her father’s will as Lucy Pittman, wife of Samuel Pitman. The will was written 03 Apr 1763 in Granville Co., NC, which means Lucy and Samuel were married by 1763. Some DAR applications have their date of marriage as 1764, but that contradicts the will. They had children Samuel Pitman Jr, Lemuel Pitman, and Rebecca Pitman. I’m sorry but I don’t know where Lucy was buried.
