This family begins with George Emmitt Pettifield who was born in 1885 South of New Iberia, LA in Jeanerette, LA. George was adopted by Joseph U. Petitfils and Marie Devolin. In a story passed down by one of George E. Pettifield’s descendants, his mother died when George was very young, and the father could not care for the child. He was grateful that the Joseph U. Petitfils family would take him into their home. George E. Pettifield grew up with adopted sibilings, Mary Louise, John R. and Anatale Petitfils. As the story is told, George Emmitt Pettifield’s last name was Johnson.
