Hello Pettigrews! I was so excited to see the many relatives of mine posting here. I have been on a mission to connect the dots to our shared ancestors James Pettigrew and Martha Moore. I have read every family history available online and I just can't find my missing piece(s).
According to the history my family has, we descend from an Elizabeth Alexander (Pettigrew) born 1817 in South Carolina. She and her husband John had a daughter Caroline b. 1832 in Abbeville S.C. Who is my 3rd G Grandmother, Elizabeth would be my 4th. Unfortunately I have not been able to confirm who Elizabeth's parents were. Not an official record to be found. The 1850 census shows all 3 of them together in Mississippi and that's all I have other than word of mouth.
any assistance would be so appreciated. xo
