  • Name  Capt. Jonathan Pitman 
    Title  Capt. 
    Born  23 Dec 1747  Burlington, Burlington Co, NJ Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Jonathan's birth year has been represented or indicated as 1746, 1747, 1748 & 1749. Some of the sources:

      1746: In Jonathan's own affidavit in June 1832, he stated he was 85 years old. If his birthday is in December, that would make him born in 1746.

      1747: "The Official Roster of the Soldiers of the Revolution Buried in the State of Ohio" (1929), an estimation based on the inscription on his gravestone, the S.A.R. application of Robert Heidrick.

      1748: An undated summary of his military service from the government (for pension), in an 1832 certifying collection of pension-related affidavits due lack of clarity on his military service and actual birth year and age he is variously "84 years of age" (probably indicating a 1747 birth year) and that "Interrogatories by the Court" suggest he was born "In the yr 1748 in Burlington County N. Jersey".

      1749: Although I haven't found any documents supporting this birth year, it as been given by various ones.
