Born on August 18, 1767, in New Castle, Delaware. Married December 8, 1791, to Andrew Pettit, son of Charles Pettit, a distinguished patriot and statesman of the Revolution, a member of the Continental Congress, a trustee of the University of Pennsylvania, and a member of the American Philosophical Society.

Andrew Pettit was born February 22, 1762, and became a merchant in Philadelphia. He was elected a member of the First City Troop September 10, 1787, and became an honorary member in 1808. He was appointed by Governor McKean flour inspector, an important office, judging by the salary attached, which was $5000 per annum. Mrs. Pettit died September 9, 1811, and is buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery. (Her tombstone records her age 42 years, a mistake for 41 years.)
