About Our Family Research

The search for my family roots has been a wonderful journey through time. It has brought me back some of my most dear and bittersweet memories. I have discovered so many interesting things about my family, many of whom I have never even met.
My hope is to leave everyone who reads my reasearch with a feeling of belonging and a very strong sense of family.

My reasearch through the Pettyjohn line has taken me all the way back to England and to the Plantagenets. Amazing to think that I am the 20th Great Grandaughter of King Henry III.
Pettyjohn family has been a very prominent family in the East, South East and an intrical part of our history as a new America.
So please read about my family and enjoy.
