References & notes
His service from a casualty list/roster for the Campaign provided by Michael Brasher, from his research in Compiled Service Records, Company rolls, and other period sources.
It is likely he is the Younger Pitts born in Mecklenburg, VA on 6 March 1812, arrived in Tishomingo, MS in about 1842 with his brother Benjamin Franklin Pitts, and died in Tupelo on 3 April 1885.
A Younger Pitts also served as First Lieutenant in Company C, (Ashcraft's) 3rd Battalion, State Cavalry, organized in February 1864. It's not clear if he is the same man.
