My GrandFather’s World War I and World War II

Surprises!!! Surprises!!!

I just found out on Ancestry that my Grandfather Willie John-otis Pittman was drafted in World War II. This is totally surprising to me. I even found his draft card.

I also found out my great grandfather Thomas Bowens who is the father of my Grandmother Gertrude Bowens Pittman served in the British Army World War I. He was 34 at the time. Wow he actually had papers from England of Wales and his address in England is also listed. Found his draft card on Ancestry too.

Now I’m really nervous and excited to learn even more about my grandfather. Curious to know where my bloodline leads.

If you’re a family member and love to know more. Email me at pldsavage@gmail.com and I’ll add you. You Providing proof we’re really related.

R.I.P My Brothers

I was just visiting Ancestry and saw that my deceased baby brother was born on this day. He was born Feb 3, 1966 and died the same day due to complications my mom was having during delivery. Sad I never got to know him, I was only a year and a month older then him. I was just a baby myself, when he died. WOW….R.I.P MY BROTHER MARVIN GREGORY DUNN- FEB 3, 1966 – FEB 3, 1966. Miss You Dearly!!!

My Brother Rudolph Dunn Jr was born 11/11/66 and died the next day 11/12/66, he also died of complications my mom were having during her pregnancy with him. So sad. R.I.P my brother I truly miss you and wish I had gotten the chance to meet you.
