I have one son as Albert Henry Pettis, born 16 May 1934 in New York, s/o Albert Thornton Pettis and Vivian Rosella (?).

This might be their son, Albert Henry Thornton Pettis.

Albert H. T. Pettis, director of the St. Francis Residence in Manhattan, died of cancer Thursday at his Manhattan home.

He was 49 years old.

Mr. Pettis, a social worker, directed the shelter for the homeless since its founding in 1980 by a group of Franciscan Friars and lay people. The shelter is in a former hotel on West 24th Street. It has been cited by the Community Service Society, a nonprofit social- service group, as a model shelter for the homeless.
