From report of the Nauvoo 9th Ward High Priests Quorum as recorded by clerk Joseph Holbrook.: "I George W. Pitkin, son of Paul Pitkin, son of Thomas Pitkin, my mother's name was Abigail Lathrop, daughter of Elijah Lathrop, was born in Hartford, Windsor County, Vermont, May 17, 1801, and baptized by President Joseph Smith in Hiram, Portage County, Ohio, May 17, 1831. In 1832, in company with 100 Saints, I move with my family to Jackson County, Missouri, at which place I was ordained a deacon under the hands of David Whitmer in September of 1832. In 1833, I was driven with the Saints from Clay County and ordained a teacher under the hands of Zebedee Coltrin, August of 1834. I was driven from Clay County and settled in Caldwell County, Missouri. I was ordained a seventy in January 1841; I removed to Nauvoo and was ordained a high priest under the hands of Phineas Richards December 1844.
