I am also helping a friend and this is the information that I found this weekend. Arthur Pettiford is the son of Laura Davis and Alexander Pettiford. Laura is listed as a widow in the 1900 census of MN. She is residing with her mother May Davis whom is also widowed. Laura's brothers Clinton and Joseph are at this residence as well. May Davis had 12 children but only 6 survived. Arthur had a sister named Anna. Arthur Pettiford married Frances Jackson. Frances died after the birth of her last child in 1930. I do not know which child that was. Arthur married a second time to Louise Nens.
My sources were the 1900 and 1920 census records. I also used the death records of Arthur and Frances. My friend descends from the John Wesley line.
I hope this helps some of you that are looking. Feel free to e-mail with questions.
