Robert, THANK YOU for responding!

Finally, I have found someone in my line!
I have no idea if I am a Newtown Coe; that is my married name. I am a PRATT descending from Connecticut. This side of the family is my maternal ancestors.

This is my line:
Henry Forbell (3 NOV 1784) & Anne Morrell are my GGGG Grandparents

Sally (Sarah Ann) Anne Forbell (11 DEC 1824) & Jerome Smith Gainer, MY GGG grandparents.

Their daughter Anne Agnes Gainer (22 DEC 1849) married Thomas Roberts (11 DEC 1845) my GG Grandparents.

Their daughter Sarah Fannie Roberts (4 AUG 1873) married Stephen Searles Soper (23 SEP 1857)
Their son was my maternal grandfather Elmer Ellsworth Soper, b: 17 DEC 1899

So I have the Pettit children under the wrong parents?

I started with research my great Aunt Maisie (Soper) and one of her cousins (George Dewey Parkhill, in the Hitchcock line) started. They had Andrew Jackson Pettit married to Rebecca Smith, and John Wesley Pettit born 3/12/1823 married to a Rebecca Unknown.

Are these John Wesley Pettit and Rebecca Smiths children?
1. John w. Pettit, b: abt 1851 New Lots, Kings, NY, married Margretta Robinson and had
Joseph Smith Pettit, 1878
Elmer J. Pettit, 1875
Walter Charles Pettit
Joshua Pettit
George Pettit
Wesley Pettit

2. Andrew Pettit
3. Joseph Pettit
4. Joshua Pettit
5. Robert Pettit (I have as born about DEC 1859 your great grandfather?)
6. Elizabeth Pettit
7. Abraham Pettit and
8. Samuel Pettit

I have no information on them.

Now on Marie Louise Pettit, I have her born about 1827 and residing in Brooklyn, Kings, 17th ward, in 1880. She married Joshua Hitchcock and had:
John Henry Hitchcock, died in infancy
Ruby Ann Rebecca Hitchcock, married Henry Searles
Sarah Maria Hitchcock, b: 1848
Mary Paddock Hitchcock, married Arthur W. Browne
Henrietta Martha Hitchcock, b: 1854
Joshua Henry Hitchcock, b: 1856, married Maybelle Androvette
Anne Elizabeth Hitchcock, b: 1861, married Joshua Thomas (Jess) Parkhill
Carrie (Caroline) Amelia Hitchcock, b: 1867, married Joseph Asbury Forrester
