MARY PETTIFORD MORTON
I am looking for information on the descendants of Mary Pettiford Morton. She was the mother of Norma Morton Brown who was born in 1916 in Ohio.
Mary is listed on the 1920 Census with her children as a widow living in Zanesville, Ward 1, Muskingham, Ohio . Her children were listed as Bertha Morton 19, Ethel Morton 17, Hazel Morton 15, Mary Morton 9 and Norma Morton 3. Since all of Mary’s children were girls I know that if they got married the surnames would be different.
I know that Norma Morton married and divorced someone named Brown and she died in, Zanesville, Ohio on August 15,1993.
I would really like to know more about this family.They may be descendants of Samuel Pettiford and Sarah Wilson Pettiford of Gallia , Ohio. If anyone can get me the obituary and death certificate of Norma Morton Brown I would appreciate it.
