March 9, 1836, he married Clarissa Youngs, and they had four children: Mary J., of Kansas; Lucina H., of Iowa; Ira S., died in Andersonville prison, and the fourth died in infancy. Mrs. Pettit died April 28, 1845, and in 1848 he married Kate J. Pangburn, widow of Jacob Phillips. Mr. Pettit has never used any tobacco and is now eighty-four years old.
