In part:

On March 23 1900 Mabel Pettit was born, daughter to Robert Pettit born March 10 1855 and Jane Hudson Pettit born 25th October 1857. Roberts parents were James Pettit and Catherine Fay. Jane`s father was Joshua Wilson Hudson.

Robert and Jane Pettit had a daughter Eva May born 17/3/1892 I`m not sure how many other children there were before Mabel was born 21/3/1900.

In 1916 Mabel gave birth to Muriel May Pettit, family whispers have it that the birth was a result of a ww1 romance between Mabel and a soldier. No body ever knew who Muriel`s father was not even Muriel herself!

In 1926 Mabel met Raymond metcalf Shepherd,he had daughters from his first marriage, Aileen, Dora, Joyce, Lillian and Betty and Mabel had Muriel. They married April 7 1926. They had 3 children together; Joan Alice Shepherd born October 1926 George Shepherd born 1929? Ruth Mabel Shepherd born 22/3/1931.
