Hello Ray;
I am a Pettiford descendant my ancestor was Edmund Pettiford . My branch of the Pettifords migrated to the midwest in the 1840's with several other free people of color. Some of those families were the Weaver, Shoecrafts, Jones,and Evans. My branch settled in Indiana, Ohio , Michigan and Illinois. My great grandfather was Joseph Pettiford they lived in Weaver, Indiana( named after Henry Weaver the father in-law of Joseph Pettiford)and we still have a reunion there every year. I also have connected to the Granville County Pettiford. I have been to their reunion also.
Would like to share information on the Pettifords with you.
