Re: DICKINSON & PITTENGER lines
Well I have folks from Pa coming through Ill. to New Hampton. I have
folks coming from New Hampshire (we think) coming to New Hampton, we
have marriages in New Hampton, Babies being born etc. Must have been a
happening place in the mid 1800"s :-).
I thought I'd post these names and story incase they ring a bell with
First George DICKINSON & his brother E.H. DICKINSON (perhaps Ethan)
came in the mid 1800"s from New Hampshire to New Hampton.
George DICKINSON fathered some 23 children including Lewis, Charles,
Coryell(b 1871), Burt, Frank, Etta & Jenny
One of George's wives was named Nancy, another was Melvina RIDDLE.
So we now have my gg grandfather Coryell DICKINSON and family in New
Hampton...meanwhile in Lycoming Pa, Abraham PITTENGER and his wife
Minerva CHAPMAN pack up their crew of Samuel S., George C., Reuben S.,
Marget A. (Margrett Amela), Henry C. & Robert C. head west, stopping in
Kane CTy Ill. to have more kids, George Washington Pittenger, William
Lafeyett Pittenger , John, Joseph, Rozett, Frank L. & Fred E.
Abraham & family arrive in New Hampton are sometime after 1864.
Son, Samuel PITTENGER (my gg grandfather)brings a wife Margaret HOLDEN
from Kane CTy and start their family in New Hampton having the
following: from 1862-1882
Anna Viola, Minera Lucresia, Ida, Edgar Samuel, Etta Mae, Claire Belle,
Their daughter Etta Mae PITTINGER marries George DICKINSON's son CORYELL
and this is my line.
Abraham PITTENGER died in 1889 and his wife Minerva in 1895 both at the
farmstead near Alta Vista. Their obituaries say they were one of the
first settlers in Chickasaw County. They are buried at the Deerfield
So it looks like New Hampton & Chickasaw Cty hold some important keys to
the family tree.
Thanks for listening,

Greetings Chickasaw County Iowa Researchers,
Those of you who have visited the Chickasaw County GenWeb Site, since
mid-August, have probably read the announcement that I have assumed the
responsibility of Coordinator for the Web Site on behalf of the
Chickasaw County Genealogical Society. Since then I have been teaching
myself what I need to know to effectively perform this job. In August,
I also had finishing work that needed to be done on a large project for
the Chickasaw County Genealogical Society and the manuscript I was
working on for that project has been finished (first draft) and is now
in review in New Hampton at CCGS.
The past several weeks I've been working on some modifications for the
Chickasaw County GenWeb Site, which I hope will be interesting,
informative and attractive to Web Site visitors. I am hopeful that I
will be ready to upload the new material in a few weeks, but since I am
still new at this, I hate to give you a "hard" date! Please be patient
with me, I think it will be worth the wait.
One of the new things I am planning is a page for LINKS to Genealogy
Home Pages for researchers with connections to Chickasaw County. If you
have your own Genealogy Web Site and would like to be included on the
Chickasaw County LINKS Page...... I invite you to e-mail me your URL
(Web address) so that I may include Your Link on this page. I think
this could be a very useful and exciting section of the Web Site.
E-mail me at my personal address: Nettie698(a)worldnet.att.net or....
to contact ME or any RootsWeb List Administrator, put the name of the
list in front of the following: -admin(a)rootsweb.com
So for Chickasaw Co IA, the address would be:
FYI: The Chickasaw Co IA Mail List has now grown to over 80
I will try to provide another update, in a couple weeks, to let you know
how things are progressing. In the meantime.......

I am doing a one name study on the name COVEY. If anyone has run
across any of these folks I would certainly appreciate hearing from
My direct line goes back to 1639 in Braintree, Massachuttes. I'm now
trying to fatten the tree and perhaps add a little color.
Thanks in advance for your efforts.
