Andrew J Pettit

Andrew Petit was born in Genesee County on May 30, 1868, the son of Myron and Ester Losee Pettit. Myron and Ester had three children whom were all born in Thetford Michigan; Andrew J(1868), Voila (1-3-1870), Julia(1871-1874)

In the 1870 Federal Census, Andrew is living with his parents in Thetford. Andrew is two years of age and Viola is 5months. They are still living in Thetford ten years later for the 1880 federal census.

He married Cora Farrell, on July 30, 1890 in Mt Morris, Lapeer County, Michigan. Cora was the daughter of Simon Farrell and Mary Furguson. Andrew and Cora lived in Otter Lake, Michigan. Andrew is 22 years of age and Cora 19 years of age.

In the 1900 Census Andrew and Cora are living in Genesee, Michigan with three children, a boarder and a servant; Vernon(1890), Nina(1892), Mildred(1895), Ross Smith (boarder)and Estella Smith(servant). By the 1910 Federal Census the family is living in Forest, Genesee County ; Vernon(1892), Nina(1892) Mildred(1895), Adrain(1902), Leone(1905), Lewis(1907), Lula(1907). The family remains in Forest for the 1920 Federal Census with the following children; Adrain, Leone, Lula, Lewis, AJ(1910), Orvil(1915). By the 1930 Federal Census only AJ and Orvil are still living at home. The family still resides in the Forest location in Genesee County.

Andrew Pettit died on October 4, 1950 in rural Mundy Township of Genesee County. He is buried with his wife Cora in the Otisville, Smith Hill Cemetery. I was hoping to get a photo of the Tombstone but there isn't on online. I'll have to go get one and post it later.

Rest in Peace,

Jan Smith
