A question: Assuming the Captain Thomas Pittman
who died in Surry CO VA abt 1670´s was the same
as the Thomas Pittman in the 1660´s deed, was
Joseph WALL referred to as the son-in-law or the
step-son? You mention both. These days the terms
step-son and son-in-law have commonly understood
meanings but I don't know if they are the same as
then. Could, for instance, have either term in VA
ca 1660s have referred to an illegitimate child?
