Biography of D. G. Pitner
Ukiah Township, Mendocino County, CA Biographies





D. G. Pitner. Born in East Tennessee, May 24, 1829. When seven years of age he, with his parents, moved to Georgia, where the subject of this sketch lived on a farm until 1848, when, leaving his parents, he went back to Tennessee, where he was engaged as overseer on a large plantation until 1855, when he came, via Panama, to California, arriving at San Francisco in September. After spending about two years in the mines we find him speculating in hogs and cattle in Calaveras county, which he followed until 1865, when he bought a farm near Healdsburg, Sonoma county, where he remained one year. He then came to Mendocino county and settled on his present place, consisting of two hundred and forty three acres, located about two miles north from Ukiah, where he is engaged in farming and speculating in stock. Mr. Pitner married, in August, 1866, Miss Cordelia Williams, a native of Missouri. They have three children: Luther N., Ellen F., and Elzena G.
