My grandmother name is Mary Belle Bettis (Van Sickle) was born July 31 1904 in Brafford County Towanda Penn.
Her father name was Joseph Bettis from (NY) and he was married to a
Van Sickle woman ( mother name unknown....
My grandmother was raise by her mother and grandparents
Van Sickle, when her grandmother pass away her mother and grandfather put her in a foster home she was around 4 yrs old..She wasn't in there very long when she was ward of to a couple who were Edward Pendelton and his wife Emily Barton Pendelton...
The Pendelton's had a son name Edward (JR)
My mother and my uncle heard rumors that Edward Pendelton had family in Towanda PA (fact) and when he visit them he had a affair with her mother Van Sickle that is why he got my grandmother so fast when she was put in the foster home..
My grandmother said he was very kind to her took her everywhere treated her like family...
They change her name to Marie Agnes Gray or(Grey)Pendelton
they had homes in Alantic city NJ and Palm Beach florida..
Looking for any information on them...
