This is a picture of my great-grandfather Andrew Jackson PITTMAN. He is on the far right. The man on the left is Frank Pittman, and the little boy is named Donald. Thanks to Linda (Pittman) Hickenlooper for donating this picture for me. Linda is a first cousin of mine. She is a big help to me for this website.
I am thinking that the man on the left is Andrew Franklin Pittman, the first son of Andrew Jackson Pittman and Francis Emiline (Nunnely) Pittman.
