I am looking information on the ancestors of George Alexander Pettigrew, born in Armagh Co. March 8, 1809. He married Nancy Agnes Hall, born December 25, 1817. Their first child John was born, Dec 25, 1841 in Ireland. Other children born in Ireland are Martha, b Aug 12, 1844; twins Samuel (died in Ireland) and James (died aboard ship) b 1846; Mary Jane, b. June 3 1848 and Agnes Campbell Pettigrew, b June 17, 1849. They departed Belfast ca. 1850 for the US. They initally settled in the St. Louis Missouri area. A brother Samuel and a sister "Aunt Forgey" were already living in the area. George was a violinist and linen weaver. After arriving in the States the family was Protestant, so I assume that was the case in Ireland as well. Any guidance will be appreciated. Regards, Alex Pettigrew
