Rebecca- Your Post interests me because I am also Searching for the family of Mary Pettit. She married John Collins and bore 9 children in Millville before the family moved to Waynesville, Warren Co, OH. One son, John Collins died there and Mary died in Dayton, OH. The rest of the family came to Muscatine and Louisa Co's, Iowa in 1853. There are several other Pettit's that were in the Muscatine area, but I have not been able to establish who Mary's parent or siblings are. Can you help?
