Cyrus Pettingill was one of the founders of the First Baptist Church of Lapeer. He moved with his wife, Mary Jane, and three stepchildren, John, George, and Caroline Brown to Lapeer sometime between 1850 and 1857. Cyrus later was in the Civil War, and ended up in a home for disabled veterans in Ohio where he died in 1884. His wife probably passed away in Lapeer prior to 1860. If anyone has information on where she might be buried, I'd appreciate that information.
