Thanks. Looks like the correct Margaret.

One has to feel for poor Eric Lorne who hadn’t spoke to his father, Neil Henry, in years for whatever reason and to learn of his father’s death at the young age 54 before being able to reconcile with him. Also sounds like he was trying to locate Aunt Joan as well.

I tried to track Joan Pettis down and thought I had a good lead, but the further I went, I realized it wasn't the right one. I wonder if poor Eric ever found her. This looks like the right Margaret Skelly. They would have gotten married circa 1943, since Neil was born in 1944.

Sounds like Neil Henry Pettis may possibly have a prodigal son (Eric Lorne Pettis) out there who wasn’t able to make up with his father before he died.

Please Help me. My father
Neil unfortunately passed away on September 6, 2000. I had not spoken to my father for many years. I have an Aunt named Joan Pettis. My wife and I are having a family and I would like to get in touch with her. Last I knew she was in South Florida. Please help me if you can.

Thank you,

Steve:

I have a reference that Neil Henry Pettis was born 10 Nov 1944 at Astoria, Long Island, New York per a birth announcement in the Parrsboro Record, Tuesday, November 28, 1944, pg. #4.

His mother’s name wasn’t mentioned and I don’t have the article.

I would assume Lorne Onsby Pettis m/1 later in life in the early 1940’s somewhere at New York after the 1940 American Census.

Thanks.

He must have married sometime to someone; he has a son and a daughter unless they’re step-children.
