In 1850, Orsamus Pitkin purchased a half lot of land to the east of his father's farm for 1300 dollars. He bought this land (owned by Belmont and Clotilde Pitkin in 1996) from Horace Hollister, agreeing to pay 100 dollars per year on the mortgage. This arrangement may be an indication that Orsamus intended to own the land for an extended period and that he purchased it intending to make a farm out of it. He was single at the time, and only 24 years old. After his marriage the following year, he seems to have resided a short distance away in Calais, where he resided the rest of his life. In 1857 he sold the land to his sister Dorcas and her husband, Steven Wooster. There is no mention in this deed to any buildings of any kind, but the value had increased to 3000 dollars, an indication that Orsamus had made considerable improvements, either by clearing land, or by some construction.

Ozias PITKIN was born on 6 Jul 1778. He died on 17 Jan 1849. Ozias married Hannah Olmsted. The following is taken from a handwritten account by an unknown author (a xerox of the complete account is in the possession of Caleb Pitkin in 1997): "Although not a sister of my father Hannah Olmsted was his cousin and she always said he was as near and dear as a brother and we knew no difference between her and our own aunt. She married Ozias Pitkin, a brother of Ralph and Daniel, who was as full of nerves as she was free from them, and the "hypo of Uncle Zi" was a common subject of conversation when I was a little girl, and he was driven by a flood to take refuge with us, for thier home was in the North Meadow of East Hartford. Perhaps his ailments were more serious than was supposed for Aunt Hannah was soon left a widow. They had two sons, Waldo and Robert, who were devoted to their mother, and later they added to her low set house a front part which was raised several feet from the ground higher than the first. . . ." Parents: Daniel PITKIN and Susannah Stanley.
Ozias Cornwall PITKIN(56) (57) was born on 22 Feb 1863 in Marshfield, Vermont. He died on 15 Oct 1950 in Marshfield, Vermont. He was buried in Durant Cemetery, Cabot, Vermont. Ozias attended the Marshfield village school, and also attended Goddard Seminary in Barre for one term. After leaving Goddard, he became clerk in Leo Putnam's store in Marshfield, and lived in a room over the store.
When he was 17, Ozias moved to Winnebago City, Minnesota, where he worked for his brother-in-law, Silas Packer on his farm. He returned to Marshfield for a short time before moving again at the age of 19 to Kewanee (?), Illinois where he clerked in a store owned by Mr. Quin. In October 1884 he went to Los Angeles, California where he worked with a group of seven surveyors. He joined the group as a stake driver and was head chainman when he left for Marshfield in June 1885.
Ozias and Olive began their married life farming on the Daniel Bemis farm on Knob Hill in Marshfield, which he purchased from his father for $800, and it was there that their first child, Fred, was born. Ozias tapped 700 sugar trees on the 110 acre farm, and kept 15 cattle.
In 1888, they moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where several other young families from Marshfield had moved. Ozias secured a position as bookkeeper, and some months later as an assistant in a law office. While working there he studied Pitman shorthand. Later he worked in the City Surveyor's office where he did drafting, and later did transit work running lot lines and determining street levels. In 1895, his salary had reached $90 per month, not enough with which to build a house for his family. His father died suddenly of pneumonia in April, 1894, and the following year the family moved back to Marshfield permanently. Ozias rented all but the two front rooms of his mother's house, and the family lived there until 1902.
Soon after returning to Marshfield Ozias supervised the laying of Marshfield's first large sewer system. He also did much surveying. Two or three summers Ozias worked for Joe Mears on his farm, and two or three summers he worked on the town roads for $1.50 per day. During three sugar seasons he did the boiling and sugaring-off for Silas Packer who tapped 900 maple trees.
In 1886 Ozias served a year as superintendent of schools in Marshfield. About 1889 he was elected a member of the board of school directors for three years.
Ozias did not approve of secret organizations. In this light, either of two interpretations might be given to the strange fact that about 1918 he was elected master of the Grange, and before his term had expired the Grange ceased to exist in Marshfield.
In February 1902 Ozias purchased the Levi Benton farm, and in 1908, he moved to the neighboring farm in Cabot, known as the Abel Morrill farm (The Pines). Engaging Dennis Lamberton and his heavy team, he straightened the river. Ozias' fame as a land engineer spread to Cabot and he was hired to ditch and drain some land north of the high school.
For a few years before 1920, Ozias and Howard Carpenter worked together as appraisers for the Federal Land Bank in Springfield, Massachusetts. They traveled to farms all over Washington County, and made recommendations to the bank for farm loans.
In 1920, Howard and Ozias assumed a mortgage on the Levi Pitkin farm. For one or two summers, Howard cut and stored the hay there, and sold it over the following winters. In 1923 (?) the two men dissolved their partnership and Ozias retained ownership of the farm.
On February 12, 1932, Olive's sister, Clara Fifield, died leaving Olive her house in Marshfield Village. In 1936 Ozias and Olive moved there. To keep Ozias intellectually occupied, Fred conceived the idea of writing a history of Marshfield, which project the two worked on for a number of years. In 1940, they published a volume.
