  • Notes 
    • In September, 1825, Jacob Pittser and wife, his father, and Uncle Michael and their families, and others who made a party of about twenty persons, started from Virginia, came in private conveyances by way of Wheeling and Columbus over the rough and difficult trails of those days, and eventually reached their point of destination in Highland Co. The entire party settled on the banks of the East fork of the Little Miami river, where most of them spent the rest of their lives. Jacob Pittser first leased and later bought part of a military grant belonging to Capt. William White, of Virginia, to which he added by subsequent purchases until his holdings of land amounted to between four and five hundred acres. [2]
