Pettyjohn Breakfast Ceral Co.

Am searching for any info on the Pettyjohns that owned the Pettyjohn Breakfast Cereal Co. Quaker Oats bought the Pettjohn Co.out in 1893, in CA, for the sum of $12,340, but Quaker does not have the name of the owner in their archives. The Pettyjohn name is still being by Quaker Oats on "Quaker Whole Wheat Hot Cereal" and the second sold in health food stores under the name of "Mothers"
I have an Samuel Pettyjohn who married Abigail Ross on August 28, 1825 in Highland county, Ohio and am trying to find their conection. Who are their parents?
An 87 year old family member states that she can remember eating Pettyjohn Cereal as a child and that it was made by "family". Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Email Taffy1240@AOL.COM
