    Seeking copy of William Thomas Pitt's discharged papers


      I am the historian for Grove Baptist Church, Portsmouth, Virginia.  William Thomas Pitt was a founder of our church, and we would like to recognize him for recording minutes of meetings and other outstanding works he had done. 


      He was from Nansemond County, Virginia. He was born 1835. He was discharged from the Union Army in Texas as a Sergeant in 1861.  He was buried in the church's cemetery in 1889.  I would like to have a copy of his discharge papers and any additional information you may have related to him.
