Hi! My name is Marti McAninch, and in doing some name searches, I ran across the name Rebecca Pethoud on your web site (spouse Samuel Jones). This Rebecca is the daughter of an ancestor of mine (John Pethoud or Pithoud as it was sometimes spelled. While not a direct descendant of your Rebecca, my family history has it that the first John Pethoud had 9 children, one named Rebecca and one named Thomas. Thomas had a daughter also named Rebecca, who is my ancestor. The info I have is as follows: Phillip Augustus Pithoud m.
Nancy Watts. Son John Pethoud m. Mary Thompson. Son Thomas M. (brother to your Rebecca) m. Maria Warren = daughter Rebecca m. Sidney Hampton Brown. Philip Augustus immigrated from France, with about 100 other people who had bought land from the Scioto Land Co. When they all got here, they found out the company didn't own the land. The US government eventually made a land grant of a little over 200 acres for each family. Dates that you might be interested in: John Pithoud b. 8/27/1798 Gallipolis, Ohio m. Mary Thompson
11/14/1822 Irontown, Ohio, d. September 23, 1883. Children were Elizabeth b. 8/26/1823 m. John Wilson; Cynthia Ann b. 9/1824? m. John Blankenship; Thomas M. b. 1/5/1826 m. Maria Warren; Rebecca b. 3/18/1828 m. Samuel Jones; John Thompson b. 12/6/1830 m. Rebecca Steece; Sarah b. 2/1/1834; Francis Marion b. 7/7/1837 m. Emily Maloney; Andrew Jackson b. 4/10/1840 m.
