I am looking for the descendants of Gurney Pettiford, Jr who was the son of Gurney Pettiford, Sr. of Indiana. The Senior Gurney was born to James T. Pettiford and Sarah Guilford of Marion, Indiana he was one of 8 children born to that couple. Gurney, Sr. married Lydia Stafford and they had several children one of them was Gurney Jr, and another was William Pettiford who was a policeman in Grand Rapids, Mi.
Gurney Jr married Martha Dean Williams and they lived in Colorado Spring, Co. Gurney ,Jr. died in 1975 in Colorado Spring his wife Martha died August 17,2001.
According to her obituary they had three daughter Vonzella Henderson , Renee D. Pettiford, Vanessa Pettiford Hall and two sons Keith and Arthur G. Pettiford, 19 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. I really would like to get in touch with them as they are part of the missing link in our Pettiford family tree. If anyone has information on this family please contact me by my e-mail at email@example.com
