William was educated at Berkhamsted School and at Pembroke College,Oxford. He was appointed Headmaster of Berkhamsted School on 8 Aug 1636. William Pitkin, was not quite the academic of former Berkhamsted days. Yet he was clearly a prominent member of local society, having served as Member of Parliament for Berkhamsted, In England, however, the political environment began to take its toll on Berkhamsted.

Berkhamsted, situated along a route between London and the battlefields of the English Civil War, became the subject of Parliamentary action to preserve the town. Pitkin’s death is recorded in the parish register of Fleet Street, London in September 1643; in his history, Williams suggests Pitkin may have visited London in an attempt to obtain protection for the School, instead dying of the Plague.

Originally a member of the Church of England, he had his children baptised in the Puritan Church of the Colony.(Pitkin Geneal.) He lies buried in the burial ground adjoining the First Church of Hartford,Main St.

progenitor of the American family, came from England in 1659. Possessing an excellent education he soon gained the full confidence of the colonists. He settled at Hartford, Connecticut. He was educated for the law and perhaps also for the ministry, but the little colony into which he entered had no need of either lawyer or minister, so he applied for and received permission to teach school at a salary of 8 pounds per annum and a load of wood from each pupil or “three shillings in lieu of the wood.” He was a man of wealth (part of which no doubt he brought with him from England), as there is evidence that he was the largest land owner on the east side of the river. He bequeathed in his will nearly eight hundred acres of land and his estate inventoried 700 pounds. He was admitted a freeman of Hartford, October 9, 1662, and appointed the same year prosecutor for the colony. In 1664 he was appointed by the King as attorney-general from 1675 to 1690, and annually represented Hartford in the colonial assembly. In 1676 he was chosen treasurer of the colony, in 1676 he was appointed with Major Talcott to negotiate peace with the Indian tribes; in 1690 he was elected a member of the colonial council and so remained until death; he was often employed by the governor as commissioner to settle disputes with other colonies. Aside from his profession he was a large planter, and had interests in a saw and grist mill. Although a member of the Church of England he asked for the rites of baptism for his children in the Puritan Church, and they were so baptized. The records assert that they all “owned their covenant” with and became members of the “First Church in Hartford.” He left a large manuscript volume of religious writings which shows him to have been a man of deep piety and of no mean knowledge of theology. “After having filled various and important offices, distinguished for his virtues and ability, he died December 16, 1694.”

He married Hannah Goodwin, married 1661 in Hartford,CT, b. 1637 in Hartford,CT, (daughter of Ozias Goodwin and Mary Woodward) d. 2 Feb 1724 in East Hartford,CT,2 buried Center Cemetary in East Hartford, Hartford, CT.

96. John Roberts9 Pitkin, (John8, Caleb7, Caleb6, Roger5, William4, William3, William2, Wyllyam1 Pitkyn) b. 24 Sep 1794 in New Hartford, Litchfield, CT.

the founder of East New York in Kings county, and of Woodhaven, Queens county, Long Island, was a son of John and Rebecca Andrews Pitkin, and was born in Colebrook, Litchfield county, Connecticut, in the year 1794. His father worked at his trade, making boots and shoes, carrying on also a small farm. The son at the early age of 12 left home to seek his own support, the father feeling that, although young, his habits and principles had so developed themselves that they would be to him (as his later life fully proved) a staff and shield which would never fail. For years he worked on a farm in the summer, receiving from $5 to $10 a month, and in the winter his board andclothing, he being permitted to attend the district school, some two miles distant.

At 20 he was offered, and accepted, a position as teacher in the New Hartford school,the same in which he had been an earnest and attentive scholar.

Then, embarking in what were called “trading expeditions,” he in company with others fitted out wagons, loaded them with dry goods, and drove through to Georgia, there disposing of all. After making a few trips, which took about four weeks each (now accomplished by railroad in three days), he became a partner with S. & L. Hurlburt,of Winchester, Ct., and the firm founded and maintained stores at Madison, Monticello,Eatonton and Warrenton, Ga., all meeting with marked success.

But Mr. Pitkin’s aims were still higher, and he returned to New York, formed a copartnership, and opened a wholesale dry goods house, which, not proving pleasant or profitable, was dissolved and its business closed.

At this time he became interested in real estate and took an active part in laying out and straightening some of the streets in New York, notably the upper part of William street.

Being attracted to Long Island, he with his brother-in-law, George W. Thrall, purchased three farms lying east and south of’ the old “Howard House,” on the Jamaica turnpike; laid the same out in streets and blocks, planted trees, built houses, and named the locality East New York.

Happy was he in later life to walk through a then busy and thriving town, with streets traversed by both steam and horse railroads, and with an enterprising and prosperous population of 15,000 people.

In 1846 he was instrumental in drawing, and after two years of diligent, persistent work, succeeded in having adopted one of the general manufacturing laws of the State of New York, under which to- day a vast amount Of individual capital and enterprise is associated in the development of the State’s resources; the capitalists working for their own not only, but for the good of humanity at large. A library of over 50 letter books today attests his untiring zeal and persistency.

He became thoroughly wrapped up in the development of the shoe manufacturing interests, and was instrumental in inducing prominent practical shoe manufacturers to remove from New England to New York. With a few near friends in 1860- 61 he founded the East New York Boot, Shoe and Leather Manufacturing Company, now officered by his children and making an average of 3,000 pairs a day, their works being carried on at Albany, New York.

Mr. Pitkin, although living beyond the allotted three- score and ten, was ever earnest in advocating those principles which would tend to elevate the, working classes; and he wrote: “As long as I am blessed with unimpaired faculties of body and brain I shall continue to agitate the union of labor with education, together with the progress of mind and wealth combined.” He was a man of indomitable energy, untiring perseverance,

pertinacity of purpose, an iron will, never yielding to the word “can’t,”and had such a clear perception of what was yet to be that in forecasting thefuture he had no superiors, and very few equals. As a father he was loved andrespected. He was indulgent, kind, generous to a fault, but always insisted onthe right. He was temperate, even to total abstinence. He was ready at all timesto do his part for The welfare of others, and to- day both in East New York andin the growing village of Woodhaven there are churches and schools upon grounds he quietly gave, without regard to sect or religion.

He died at Brattleboro, Vermont, September 2nd 1874, and now rests with his father,mother, wife and children on a beautiful slope in Cypress Hills Cemetery; a solidgranite sarcophagus marking the spot.

In 1821 Solon was called “Milan”. In that year, 3 families from Wethersfield, CT moved there. They included Capt. and Mrs. Jason Robbins and children, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Bull with several children including two daugthers and Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Wells. The Bulls had 11 children including one son named “Pitkin Bull”.

From Pioneer Women of the Western Reserve:

Mrs. Samuel BULL (Fannie HUNTINGTON) was a woman of genuine worth, doing well whatever her hands found to do. She was once lost in the woods in the following manner: One afternoon, while the family were busy making sugar, she started to drive the sheep into the fold, as was their nightly custom to protect them from wolves. Not finding them, she followed in the direction of the sound of a bell,

and soon realized that she was lost!

Wandering on for some time she came to a sugar camp where men were at work. She explained the situation and they, not knowing where Mr. BULL lived, took her to another camp where they did, and walked home with her. The sound of a horn was plainly heard, the signal that some one was lost; and on

arriving home, she saw her husband sitting on the barn blowing a horn so loud and fast that no response could be heard. It was two o’clock in the morning and the rejoicing can better be imagined than described.

Both Mr. and Mrs. BULL were faithful attendants at church, going on horseback, each taking one of their children, also their lunch so they could remain for the afternoon service, the latter, being a characteristic feature of the pioneer churches.

These hardy pioneers were awake to the importance of an education, and organized a school the year following their arrival. The teacher was John HENRY, who was to receive ten dollars per month and board. There were four pupils from the ROBBINS family and three from the BULLS’. Tuition for

the former was paid in maple sugar; for the latter in shoemaking.

From the History of American Locomotive Company( http://www.railroad.net/alco/centennial.htm)

“The government census of 1880 gave Schenectady a population of 13,655. By now the Works was Schenectady’s principal industry, and annual production soared to 175 locomotives.

That same year a new and outstanding personality came upon the scene. Albert J. Pitkin, whose family was to become an important part of the fabric of Schenectady, took over the position of chief draftsman. Pitkin was influential in having the company produce heavier locomotives. He was the advocate of large boilers and increased grate areas. Pitkin introduced the cross-compound engine and was the chief designer of the 4-4-0 type. The cross- compound used one high pressure and one low pressure cylinder, thus using the steam twice and resulting in great economies in the use of both coal and water.

Except during the depression years the output of the company climbed steadily to a high of 417 locomotives in 1900, when the average weight of a road locomotive was more than four times that of the original “Lightning.”

On June 24, 1901, the Schenectady Locomotive Works became the backbone of today’s American Locomotive Company. The “Big Shop” was merged with seven other companies located at Dunkirk, New York; Alleghany and Scranton, Pennsylvania; Providence, Rhode Island; Richmond, Virginia; Man- chester, New Hampshire, and Paterson, New Jersey.

Eventually, American Locomotive Company was to be expanded still further by the addition of plants at Auburn, New York; Chicago Heights, Illinois; Latrobe, Pennsylvania; Beaumont, Texas;, and Montreal, Quebec. It was in the Montreal plant that today’s chairman of the board, Duncan W. Fraser, and today’s president, Robert B. McColl, started their Alco careers. A. Pitkin, who was general manager of the Schenectady Locomotive Works, became president in 1904 following the death of Samuel R. Callaway, the first president of American Locomotive. Pitkin served until his death on November 16, 1905.

From “The History of Schenectady”:

“As railroads multiplied throughout the seventies and eighties, so did the Schenectady Works expand yearly in both manpower and manufacturing capacity. The Ellis family retained control through the end of the century and, except for a brief defection, Walter McQueen oversaw mechanical considerations. Indeed, “McQueen engines” were widely known for their substantial excellence. Another notable locomotive designer, A.J. Pitkin, joined the firm during this period. He was to earn particular fame as the creator of the high speed 4-4-0’s of the NYC&HR RR. Also he was later destined to head the firm of consolidated companies that became American Locomotive.”

History of Pitkin, LA (http://searches.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ifetch2?/u1/data/la+index+25452175518894+F)” Sometime after 1872, near Mr. Milam’s mill on Six Mile Creek, the settlement of Slabtown grew. A post office was established at Slabtown. Later the post office known as Slabtown moved elsewhere and about 1905 the town was named Lydia in honor of Lydia Thornton. The lands of Mr. Thornton and Mr. Mathis was partially divided into blocks and streets. During 1905 and 1906 the Santa Fe Railroad was being built through the area. An official of the railroad died during the construction period. His name was Pitkin. Due to another town in Louisiana being named Lydia, in 1906 the name of the town was changed to Pitkin in honor or Mr. Pitkin”

This was most certainly Albert J. Pitkin.

In 1870, the family lived in East Hartford, next door to Charles’ father and siblings. In 1880, the family was living in Santa Clara, California.

Charles A. Pitkin, residing on the Meridian road near the Stevens Creek road, purchased the fifty acres on which he now resides in 1882. He then planted 1,200 French prunes, 450 silver prunes, 1,200 apricots, 500 Bartlett pears, 350 yellow egg plums, 600 peaches, 300 cherries, 175 Hungarian prunes, 56 Washington plums, and 220 fruit-trees of different varieties for family use, making in all about 5,000 trees. In 1887, on twenty acres, from 900 apricot trees, there was a net result of $2,000, from 800 various prunes over $1,000, from the yellow egg plums $342, and from 56 Washington plums $56. In the year previous the prunes netted $1.50 to the tree. There is on the place a fruit-drying apparatus, which seems to possess several marked advantages, and on which Mr. Pitkin has been allowed two patents. The fruit to be dried is in trays placed on shelves on a large revolving wheel inside an immense brick oven, these two parts of the apparatus resembling a large cracker-baking oven. The slow revolution brings the fruit within the very dry and the more moist strata of heated air, also in the currents of greater and less heat slowly and at intervals, preventing danger of burning, and enabling the fruit to gather in the lower part of the drier a condensation of jelly-like moisture, re-absorbing and retaining to the fullest extent the natural aroma and flavor of the fruit.

Mr. Pitkin was born in East Hartford, Connecticut, in July, 1837, and reared on his father’s farm. He was attending the East Hartford High School at the age of sixteen, when he left school and went to work in the Colt Pistol Factory in 1856, remaining there one year. He was then employed in the firm of Bidwell, Pitkin & Co. as bookkeeper, in which his brother was interested. In 1860 this firm changed its name to Pitkin Bros. & Co., the subject of this sketch being admitted to the firm, and their business the manufacture of steam, water, and gas apparatus. He remained in the firm until the winter of 1877-78, over twenty years, when he came to California and bought twenty-two acres in the Willows, which he planted partially in orchard, and sold later, buying the place on the Meridian road.

Mr. Pitkin is a member of the Masonic Order, and of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He has been a Republican from the inception of that party, is in favor of full prohibition, and believes in absolute protection of American industries.
