I am looking for any infomation of Petticrews in the 1700s or early 1800s who may have been in Michigan. My family ancestors lived in Ohio and I am descended from David and later John L. Petticrew. I recently was told that David's father was John Finley Petticrew. My research on this line is just new what I have is somewhat limited but I would be happy to share.
John Finley Petticrew did have a son, David,
who married a Mary Lehman. John F. was also
the son of David Petticrew of Hanover Township,
Dauphin County, Pennsylvania (b. 1713, d. 1784).
According to the L.D.S. records this David was
the son of a David Pettigrue of Lanark, Scotland
(b. 1689). I'm not convinced that this
connection is correct but have no real proof
that it isn't. I'm exploring the possibility
that David of Hanover Township came from County
John Finley's brother James (b. 1761, d. 1821)
also had a son David (b. 1809, d. 1857). This
David also had a son, David Smith Petticrew
(b. 1849, d. 1908). This David is my grandfather.
I have a near complete genealogy (you're never
really done) of these Petticrews through
11 generations from David of Lanark Scotland.
After father David's death in Hanover Township,
all of his children made the trip west. John F.
went first to Springfield, Rockbridge County, Virginia
in the mid 1790s. Brother James traveled to
and settled in Montgomery County, Ohio, sometime
after 1791. All of David's daughters, Margaret,
Catherine, Rosanna, and Elizabeth along with
mother Elizabeth Petticrew emigrated to Washington
County, Pennsylvania with their husbands between
1782 and 1785. Sister Rosanna Petticrew married
John Campbell who was killed in Crawford's
defeat in the battle of Sandusky Plains (Ohio)
in 1782 and had one son, John Duncan Campbell.
Rosanna and son John Duncan Campbell followed
brother James to Montgomery County, Ohio in
John Finley also followed brother James and
sister Rosanna to Montgomery County sometime
around 1810-1814. He then emigrated to
Cass County, Michigan around 1831-1833.
Many of his descendents through his son David
remained in Montgomery and Greene Counties, Ohio.
Well, I ramble on!
I would be glad to share anything I have that
is of interest to you. I would also like to
compare what I have with your information for
verification. And would be interested in any
data you would be willing to share with me.
I have the complete line (almost) of the
Michigan John L. line (John Finley Petticrew).
I look forward to hearing from you.
My mother (Mary M. b. 8-23-1925) lives in Ok. She is a Petticrew from Belfast, Ireland that came here as a WWII bride. Her parents Issac and Elizabeth Petticrew lived and died in Belfast,Ireland on Bruce St. Do any of your Petticrews have a brother named Issac?
My g-g-g-grandfather David Petticrew (b. 1713) and wife Elizabeth Finley emigrated to America in the 1750-1760 time frame. I have a complete genealogy of this family from the time they arrived in America. I have as yet to establish a link in Ireland although their oldest son John says that he was born in Ireland when he applied for a Revolutionary War pension at the ripe old age of 80.
This is too early for the connection to your Isaac's generation. If any of my David Petticrew generations interest you, please drop me an e-mail.
As I am a beginner at researching my family genealogy, I am starting to ask my mother for more information. Her father was born in June in the early 1900's. He had many siblings. She remembers David, Joseph, John, Annie and Elizabeth. Elizabeth moved to Canada and another sister (unsure of name) moved to Texas with her husband and were killed in a tornado there. She has a cousin that she writes frequently that lives in Ireland. I will let you know if I discover more ties or if we get a genealogy lead in Ireland. Thanks for your reply.
hi, i'm bill from belfast northern ireland.by coincidence my great grandfather was joeseph(born around 1875-1880) and my grandfather who was the 5th of six children was also joeseph (born 1905) the other children were,leonard,herbert,racheal,lena and hugh. i'm aware that g.g.joeseph was origionly from ballylesson (between belfast and lisburn county down n.i.) and moved to the clandeboye estate (bangor,co.down) where he was employed as head ploughman (he could niether read or write) obviously he could work the land and copulate!!, his partner was called agar, sarah i think? and she already had one child when they met she was helen. she was a housemaid working in the home of the marquis of dufferin and ava owner of the clandeboye estates. although she took the name petticerew i'm led to believe that they never actually got round to the married bit and lived together, until death do us part, as they say.i'm a beginner myself with this genealogy stuff,but it's very interesting..........yours..bill (i'm also known locally in entertainment circles as steve hence the email; address!!!!
My mother's maiden name is Petticrew from Springfield, Ohio (born in 1917). She's the eldest of 5 siblings.
One of her brothers (Stanley Scott Petticrew, Jr., born in 1922) still lives in Springfield and is a WWar Two veteran (Army Air Corps). Their father's name was Stanley Scott Petticrew, Sr., who's father was Orin Petticrew (married to Marie Scott). I'm not certain since I don't have the genealogical chart right her in front of me, but I believe that we're related to John as the father of Orin Petticrew. I'm at email@example.com
if you'd like to compare notes.
I'm related to the Ohio (Springfield) Petticrew family. My great-grandfather was Orin Petticrew who is buried with his wife (Marie nee Scott) Petticrew also in Springfield (Clark County). I don't know much about the Petticrews before they came to Ohio but supposedly they were in the Michigan area before Michigan and Ohio became states (i.e., the Northwest Territory).
My mother's maiden name is also Petticrew, and her late father was my maternal grandfather named:
Stanley Scott Petticrew, Sr., who is also buried in Springfield, Ohio. Let me know what you want as far as information, and we can share. Thanks!
I have photos of Orin and Marie Scott Petticrew who are my great grandparents also. I also have two generations of Marie's parents (Tiffin, OH) and the genealogy of Orin Petticrew including 46 ancestors. Since this inquiry is more than a year old, I wonder if you have more information. Rather than reply to the above family history center, please send reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
James Petticrew, a brother of John Finley Petticrew, is my 3rd great grandfather. I'll tell you what I can about the Petticrews. John was born 20 March 1758. In his pension application(He fought in the Rev. War.)he states he was born in Ireland. He was in Cass Co., Mich by 1830-31.John married Elizabeth Hamilton. She was born 5 Oct. 1768 and died 31 Oct.1821. The parents of John and James are David Jr. and Elizabeth Finley Petticrew. David may have been born in Scotland. Elizabeth was probably born in Northern Ireland. David was born on 27 May 1726 and died 2 July 1784 in Dauphin County, Pa. Elizabeth was born in 1715 and died 1809 in Washington Co., Pa. at the home of one of her daughters. She moved there after David's death. The parents of David are David Petticrew Sr. and Janet Markham. They are supposed to be from Lanark, Scotland. I was in Saalt Lake this summer and I may have more information when I look through my notes. I hope this helps.
