  • Dear Lisa, Very glad i happened upon this site. The Bittles family reunion is this saturday. Joseph Bittles And Nettie Titter were my great grandparents . My grandfather was Leslie married to Clara Bittles of Collinsville and my father was Robert Bittles born in Ofallon Illinois,later relocated to collinsville, Il. Would love to connect with some of the family and find geneology and history of family. Will be anxious to hear from you. James had a drugstore in o’fallon. Sincerely,Leslie/bittles/rosenberger

      Hi, Leslie! How wonderful to meet another Bittles! You descend from Samuel Bittles, father of Joseph. I descend from Samuel’s brother Stewart Bittles. Samuel is my 3rd great-granduncle! I would love to hear more about your family! ~ Lisa
