"James A. Petticrew was born near Dayton, Ohio,
May 30, 1835, a son of David and Mary (Lehman) Petticrew, early
citizens of Springfield. David Petticrew settled at an early date in the
vicinity of Dayton, but later moved to Westville and then to Springfield,
where he became a pioneer wagonmaker. James A. Petticrew learned the
wagonmaking trade in the shop of his father, and followed that business
at Westville until 1871, at which time he became a resident of Springfield.
Here he accepted a position with the Springfield Coffin and Casket
Company, by whom he was employed until his death, September 28, 1894.
He was a man of industrious habits and sound integrity, had several
connections of a fraternal and civic character and was a good and public-
spirited citizen. His wife, Rebecca Robbins, was born in Miami County,
Ohio, January 8, 1840, and was a daughter of John and Maria (Phelps)
Robbins. This worthy and estimable woman was called in death February
26, 1914. She and her husband were the parents of the following
children : John, who is now deceased ; Ambrose B., a resident of Springfield;
Mary M., of Springfield; William A., also a resident of this city;
Leslie R., now living at Des Moines, Iowa ; Charles Edgar, of this record ;
James Franklin, living in Clark County ; Viola May, who is deceased ;
and David Elbert, of Springfield."
