      Pittman Lewis' name was interchangably "Pittman" and "Pitman". I strongly suspect that Pittman's maternal great-grandmother had a surname of "Pittman". While the name was commonly spelled "Pittman" during the 1700's, it was more commonly spelled "Pitman" during the 1800's. Pitman was born 14-August-1789, and died 21-April-1858 according to both the Family Bible and his gravemarker. Pitman's will is on record at the Rutherford County Courthouse.
      Pitman Lewis married Intha Dalton in May 1837 in Rutherford County.
      Intha Dalton's birthyear is uncertain and her gravemarker states her birthdate as "About 1805".
      Intha was "about 32" when she married Pitman. Intha already had a daughter named "Jane Caroline Dalton" when Intha and Pitman were married. Jane's birthdate on the 1900 census ( Rutherford County, Green Hill Township ) was "Dec 1831", so Jane would have been about 5 years old when Pitman and Intha were married. Jane married George Martin Edwards in October 1848 in Rutherford County and had 6 children starting with Thomas Pinkney Edwards in October 1849. Pitman did not mention step-dau Jane Caroline Dalton Lewis Edwards in his will.
      Pitman and Intha had 4 children of their own.

      The oldest was Elizabeth Lewis, born 9-October-1838 according to the Family Bible, and Elizabeth married William Henry Cantrell and moved near Boiling Springs, Spartanburg County, SC. See the 1880 Spartanburg County SC census, Cherokee Township, district 140, sheet 19, line 36, house 173, William was listed as 49 years old and ill with what appears to be "Chronic-Dysentery". Elizabeth is listed as age 41, with 8 children. I have serious reservations about the census taker's record-keeping and suggestion that Elizabeth was born in SC -- I suspect she was actually born in Rutherford County.

      William Henry Cantrell appears to have died by the 1900 census, and Elizabeth appears on the 1900 census in Spartanburg County, SC, at the age of 61.
      I do not know when Elizabeth Lewis Cantrell died, but sometime after the 1900 census.
