Hi Holly, I have a little of your family info from Louise, however I think I can add more. I am the descendent of Susan Petty who married Walter Blake in Headford and moved to Birmingham England, and her father was Jeremiah Petty, farmer. Mother I think is Rebecca, no last name yet.
Most of this you can see on my public Petty tree, check it out.

As for your line.
Jeremiah A. Petty, born 18 Aug 1861 Kilmaine Parish, Co. Mayo {rootsireland.ie} found them 1900,1920,1925 in Cental Falls, RI. Died 02 May 1929, lists parents as Wm Pettit/Marg't Burke {familysearch.org) Catherine died 28 Sept 1930 Central Falls, RI.

To confirm this the Passenger List for Eliza lists brother Jerh Petty of Pawtucket RI as contact. Sept 12, 1896.

Your Susan born Aug 1877 is found in 1910, Providence married to John Francis Gorman, 1925 & 1940in Pawtucket. Susan died 18 Aug 1942 Pawtucket. Lists father as Wm Petty.
Their son John Joseph Gorman died 17 Apr 1950 and lists parents as John Francis Gorman & Susan Pettit.(familysearch.org.}

My clue to some of this is 3 articles from Genealogybank.com
Heading reads a Pretty Wedding at St. Joseph's PF Tennian of W. Newbury Mass united to Miss Mary E. Pettit, bride attended by sister Susie K.M. Pettit. Turkey breakfast served and the home of Mr & Mrs Frank A. Thurber. (1901)

Another article dated July 12, 1919 is a farewell reception for Jeremiah's son John W. Petty, born 13 July 1894 of Central Falls, in short it lists, P. Tenian, Coderre, and Mrs John Yorman (read Gorman) danced a reel.

In the Job/Joseph Pettit family daughter Sarah Jane married Alonza F. Thurber, have not checked to see if they are related. Have more articles from genealogy bank on them also.
Cheers Sharon
