Notes for John Patrick & Elizabeth (Family)
This family is in my database primarily to document the parents of Mary Ellen McCann who married Samuel Pettit. I’ve included more on their children than I usually do, because after Mary Ellen died, Samuel and Mary Ellen’s daughter Gertrude was raised by Mary Ellen’s parents, and their daughter Edna was raised by Mary Ellen’s sister Emily.
