Re: Negro Registries- PETTIFORD

Hello Shelia;
I want to let you know that the information you found on Anna Pettiford Hood is related to my research. Anna Blanks Pettiford Hood was the wife of Jesse Pettiford a Civil War veteren, He died during the war and we don't know exactly how he died there are several stories sourrouding his death including one that says he was poisoned by the enemy. Jesse and Anna had several children including Jessie Jr. Jessie Jr. married Isabelle Newby to them was born several children including Ellard Pettiford who is the grandfather to my cousin Charles Highbaugh he can be reached at Anna married a William Hood and had more children.
I am a descendant of Edmund Pettiford who came from North Carolina and settled in Weaver, Indiana a settlement located about 60 miles from Indianapolis and near Marion, Indiana. My cousin Charles Highbaugh and I have been doing research in Jennings County for several years. I have pictures of the Jesse Pettiford family and a picture of Anna Blanks Pettiford Hood. I am happy that someone else is doing research in this county. I would be happy to share other information if contacted.
