  • Notes 
    • Several problems exist with Isaac as parent of Jonathan Pitman, even though the SAR & DAR accepted that information when submitted. Basically, there is no known original record reference supporting the connection between these two men. Compilations of collected tidbits of information, assembled to look official for the purpose intended (sometimes for a book), do not take some things into account, and make assumptions about relationships, sometimes even stating that they've done so...which is true of the DAR documentation. For instance, the DAR record states it is assuming certain people are Jonathan's sons, and yet his will does not include them and there are no records indicating these relationships (specifically Simon, Pierson, Daniel and David). These could be sons, but could as easily not be sons.
    • Many have accepted William Pitman and Hannah Kimble as the parents of Jonathan. However, just as with Isaac, there are no documents supporting the actual relationship between this couple and Jonathan as their son.
    • There is also a leaning toward Joshua Pitman being the father of Jonathan, but again no documents have been discovered to prove such a relationship.
