Dear Sandy,
I have come across your Ann Pettit who married James Benson according to the WA BDM site in 1875 in Dongara (reg 3928).
I know she is connected to my Pettit Family somehow, since my Pettit's too were from Dongara, WA (not far from Geraldton). I have not found out where she fits in. But I can tell you that John Pettit who was born in 1786 in Brighton, Sussex and his wife Rebecca (nee Long) (Born abt 1811 in Kent). came to Fremantle WA as early settlers, later moving to Dongara,WA to take up farming. I am guessing your Ann Pettit is their grand daughter.
Ann's father would have to been one of John and Rebecca's sons who were - 1. John George Pettit B 1811 (he died age 27yrs) Not sure if he married. 2. Richard Thomas Pettit Born 1816. 3/ David Henry Pettit Born 1822. (He married Mary Ann White in 1849. Known children Ellen -1854, Edward - 1856, David -1858, Elizabeth Rebecca - 1860, Emma - 1862, )
Another son of John and Rebecca was Edward Born 1826. (He married Mary Ann Green .Known children Edward - 1857, Amelia Rebecca - 1860, )
IF I come across a link to Anne Pettit I will let you know. Hope this helps.....
