Refer to post: Obit for William N. Petticrew of Tioga Co. PA, died 3 Oct 1976.

For William and Harold's parents and siblings:

(Looks like Harold was married to Florence by 1920 and they were living with his folks.)

Below is possibly the previous generation, grandparents of William and Harold and their family. If so, when and where the children were born gives a clue that the family emigrated about 1870-73:

Charles Pettigrew        10 do
William Pettigrew        7 b. PA
Elizabeth Pettigrew        5 do
Gibson Pettigrew        1 do

Below might be another sister, Mary:

1880: Tioga, Tioga, Pennsylvania
Thomas R. Warren        45
Catherine L. Warren        40
Clara Warren        17
Ray Warren        12
Mary Petticrew        17 b. Scotland. Servant.

Father Richard was dead by 1900:

1900 census: Framington Twp., Tioga Co. PA
Mary Pettigrew        62, b Aug 1837. Widowed, mother of 9 children, 8 living.
Lizzie Pettigrew        25, b. May 1875

I hope this gives you material for further research.
