PITTENGER Family

First Generation

1. David1 Pittenger(4180) was born in New Jersey 1811.

He married twice. He married Liverah Godown in Hunterdon Co, New Jersey, March 18, 1832. The marriage officiator was J. P. Opdycke.

Liverah was born in Baptistown, Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co. NJ 1817. Liverah was the daughter of Richard S Godown and Mary Rittenhouse. Liverah died 1852 in Hunterdon Co, New Jersey, at 35 years of age. In the 1850 census Kingwood Twp Hunterdon Co, page 134B, Livery (age 33) is living with her husband David Pittenger (age 40) and children, Mary A (age 15), Sarah (age 12) William and Israel (twins age 10) and Virginia (age 4). David has the occupation of store keeper. Also in the household is Ingham Godown (age 26) with an occupation of clerk.

He married Sarah Godown in Hunterdon Co, New Jersey, June 27, 1853. Sarah was born in Baptistown, Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co. NJ 1812. Sarah(4181) was the daughter of Richard S Godown and Mary Rittenhouse. Sarah died February 23, 1894 in Baptistown, Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co. NJ, at 81 years of age. Sarah (age 38) is recorded in the 1850 census as living in the household of John Bowne (age 82) physician, and his wife Nancy (age 80). She is listed as being born in NJ. I also would guess that because of the ages of the Bowne's, that Sarah may be a live-in household helper.

In the 1860 census, Kingwood Twp Hunterdon Co page 714, Sarah is now married to David and the children of Liverah and David. David is noted as a Merchant with a personal value of 7,000 and a real Estate value of 4,000.

In the 1870 census Baptisttown, Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, page 227B, a David (age 59) is living with a Sarah (age 58). David is noted as a Farmer with real Estate valued at 6,000 and personal at 2,600. In the 1850 census Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co NJ page 1, David (age 40), is recorded with Livery (age 33), Mary (age 15), Sarah (age 12), William (age 10), Israel (age 10), Virginia (age 4), and Ingham Godown (age 26). David has the occupation of stone cutter.

In the 1860 census Baptisttown, Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co NJ page 714, David (age 49), is recorded with Sarah (age 48), William (age 20), Israel (age 20), Virginia (age 15) and Amanda (age 9). David is recorded as a merchant.

In the 1870 census Baptisttown, Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co NJ page 227, David (age 59), is recorded with Sarah (age 58) and Gertrude Cross (age 67). They are living right next door to Elizabeth Snyder (Sarah's sister) and Richard Godown (Sarah's father) and the next door is Amanda (David's daughter) and Lambert Dalumple,

In the 1880 census Baptisttown, Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co NJ page 63, David (age 69), is recorded with Sarah (age 68), Amanda Dalrymple (age 30), gdau Livera (age 8), gson Eany (age 6), Joseph Wagner (age 15) and George Trimmer (age 40). David is a storekeeper and a farmer and all births are NJ.

Messrs J. R. and Stacy B. Sutton will take charge of the store at present kept by Mr. David Pittenger, at Baptisttown, the first of September 1885.

David Pittenger and Liverah Godown had the following children:

child 2 i. Mary Ann2 Pittenger(4182) was born Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ June 13, 1834. Mary died May 21, 1908 in Clinton, Hunterdon Co, NJ, at 73 years of age. She married Edward Thomas Barrass Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, October 23, 1852. Edward was born Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ April 10, 1832. Edward(4183) was the son of Thomas S Barrass Rev and Sarah Green. Edward died August 27, 1905 in Clinton, Hunterdon Co, NJ, at 73 years of age. (See Edward Thomas Barrass for the continuation of this line.)

child 3 ii. Sarah Jane Pittenger(4184) was born Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ 1839. She married twice. She married David P Srope in Hunterdon Co, New Jersey, 1858. David was born in Hunterdon Co, New Jersey 1835. David(4185) was the son of Isaac R Srope and Sarah Roelafson. David died February 21, 1862 in Locktown, Delaware Twp., Hunterdon Co., New Jersey, at 26 years of age. (See David P Srope for the continuation of this line.) She married William Roberson Alexandria Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, June 20, 1863. William was born in New Jersey 1840. William(4186) was the son of Mahlon Roberson and Elizabeth Slater.

child + 4 iii. William R. H. Pittenger was born May 1840.

child + 5 iv. Israel B Pittenger was born May 1840.

child 6 v. Virginia Pittenger(4187) was born Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ 1845. She married Richard H Opdyke Frenchtown, Hunterdon Co, NJ, August 4, 1866. Richard was born Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ 1845. Richard was the son of Peter Fox Opdyke and Sarah L Hartpence. (See Richard H Opdyke for the continuation of this line.)

child 7 vi. Amanda Pittenger(4188) was born Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ 1850. She married twice. She married Lambert B Dalrymple in Hunterdon Co, New Jersey. Lambert was born Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ 1847. Lambert(4189) was the son of William Abbot Dalrymple and Gertrude Heath. Lambert died September 17, 1903 in Jersey City, NJ, at 56 years of age. Buried at the Phillipsburg Cemetery, Phillipsburg, New Jersey (See Lambert B Dalrymple for the continuation of this line.)

She married Jacob H Tigar 1884. Jacob was born in New Jersey January 1858. (Additional notes for Jacob H Tigar(4190)) (See Jacob H Tigar for the continuation of this line.) I am making the assumption that Amanda's mother was Liverah since Liverah was alive in the 1850 census and Amanda is 9 in the 1860 census and it would have been just too quick for Liverath's death, a marriage to Sarah and then have a child.

In the 1880 census Amanda and the two children are recorded with Amanda's parents David and Sarah Pittinger.
