All Pettit researchers, I have the feeling that someone may be looking for this piece of information----I have no connection to or knowledge of who this young lady is or what family she comes from. But my husband's Mother family were descendants of Annie Poteet----these names were similar enough to give me pause, plus the fact that their family had actually lived in Hugo, OK where this young lady was admitted when she was 6 years old it appears in Hugo, OK at lodge #615. Here is the exact notation as I found it:
The OKGenWeb Project shows a roster of residents, Carmen Home, Carmen, Alfalfa Co., Oklahoma that dates back to 1939, shows the following report for the year ending Aug 31, 1939 and is the 32nd Annual Report of this home.
Roster of Residents Name, age, admitted, town/lodge Helen PETTIT, 16, Aug3, 1929 (so this would mean that she had been there 10 years???) Hugo #615
this notation was found at this website: http: //okielegacy.org/Journal/ezine/?vol=0&search=1&city=Carmen&state=Oklahoma
I did not access the original OK GenWeb Project.
Hopefully, this will help someone searching for an ancestor or relative. Happy hunting! & much success in your search!
