I am looking for anyone researching my family in Pennsylvania. Primary spellings are Petillon, Petillion, Bettelyoun, Bedillion. There are many, many more spellings. Earliest arrivals in the US were Abraham Petillion/Bedillion (1721-?)(arrived 1751); and Johann Philipp Petillion/Bedillion (1730-1802)(arrived 1752). The family is documented by a publication titled "A Family on the Move: Origins of the Bedillion (Petillon) Family." My problem child is Isaac Petillon/Bedillion (1770-1830)of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. I don't find anything except for my ancestor, George Petillion/Bedlion/Bedtelyon (1803-1874), born in Dauphin Co., PA; who lived and married in Clarence, New York; and moved to Michigan in 1854. Thank you in advance for any assistance. Contact me at
