obituary notice for Levi Pettis
My husband & I have just started researching our family roots, and we believe that the Levi Pettis, son of Mortimer & father to Hiram is indeed my husband's great,great,great,great grandfather. He is a direct descendent of Hiram & Malinda.I have "pedigree" charts that begin with Mortimer.
My father-in-law has an obituary notice for Levi, which is how we are relatively certain we are discussing the same person. He is known to be a military drummer boy, and sprang bear traps with his nose & did indeed live to be 111 years old.If anyone has any more information, please contact me email@example.comMy FIL will be getting us a photocopy of the original newspaper clipping within the week if anyone is interested in my typing it in.
