The earliest documented Pitzer to come to USA that I have found actually spelled it Bitzer and they came from Germany. Ulrich Bitzer arrived in 1727 aboard the ship Adventure settling in Pa. later moving to Va.. He had two sons John and Christian. Other early arrivals were Ludwig and Johannes Bitzer in 1750 aboard the ship Osgood followed by Michael and Mathesis Bitzer aboard the ship Forrest in 1752 all setting in Pa. John and Michael Pitzer are listed in the D.A.R. register. Check your public library for books on German Immigrates to Pa..
