Pittsburg Biographies
Updated: April 17, 2008  

This section contains biographies of the men and women who helped build Pittsburg from its birth in 1876 to what it has become today. Their stories have become threads in the woven history of Pittsburg and should be told. The biographies have come from a variety of sources including newspapers, obituaries, historical books and my own research.
