Greetings,

I am the Grandson of a Pitney, on my mother's side, and am looking into my family history.
While looking through an old photo album today, I found a very old photo of Henry C. Pitney's house, and am curious to know if there is a possible family tie.
I would be interested in talking to anyone who might have information regarding the extended family of Henry Pitney; i.e., names of any siblings, nieces, nephews, etc.
Actually, any information at all would be terrific.

Thanks in advance,

Jer
Denise
