I'm hoping a local would be willing to see if a research lead may hold something. The Genealogical Society holdings at the Old Courthouse on 9 Park St in Fonda, NY may hold what I am seeking. I called them, and they have church records from Saratoga County. They also have a Pettit Family File. I'm not sure what the latter is, but I'm intrigued by the former, particularly if it has more than Ancestry has online. I am looking for a male, born Dec 1821, named Abner Pettit (or similar spelling). I don't know his parents, nor where they were born. (By 1841 Abner has moved to west NY and married and I know all about him after that). I am specifically looking for a tie to him prior to 1840, and particularly his birth family.
Thank you from California
