Edith Sylvia Stearns, b. ca 1852, was the daughter of 19th century
American artist, Junius Brutus Stearns. She married James Shields Foy.
He died 1 March 1894. She remarried to a man named Pettit, who had a
son by a previous marriage, Wade C. Pettit. Wade Pettit is said to have
died in 1959. Wade had a daughter, Genevieve Marsh (presumably her
married name).

I've sent this request to this list because there are uncertainties
regarding the spelling of Pettit/Petit

Can anyone add pertinent information regarding this second family of
Edith Stearns?
