Today I found an announcement of James Wesley Pettigrew's death.I don't know if this could be called an obituary as he does'nt give much in the way of family or history of his life.
While researching in the OKLAHOMA HISTORICAL SOCIETY in Oklahoma City I found the following article.
From the Idabel Gazette - Jan 1, 1938 front page:
