Thanks for posting your pedigree. I looked at your ggggrandfather's death
certificate. A public tree on Ancestry.com shows Phoebe J. Van Buren (1835-1900) to have been his spouse and shows an Ervin W. Pitts (1868-1908) as a child. Ervin
died Sept 5, 1908 in Livingston County Michigan
Ervin Pitts spouse was Mary Ellen Radford bb 1869
Ervin and Mary Ellen Pitts had a child Harold Austin Pitts (1902-1982)
So I'm guessing that this is your tree that I found on Ancestry.com
Have you considered doing a DNA test to find out more about your ancestors?
