George W. Pettigrove - From Maine to Washington State

Looking for George W. Pettigrove, b. bet. 1871-1872 in Maine. His wife's name was Kathryn (possible last name of Ebberson) b. 1866-1867 in Denmark. She immigrated in 1871 and was Naturalized in 1889 (if I read the last two numbers correctly on the census report.)

Information from the 1920 Skagit Co., WA Census shows them living in the Prairie Precint, Household #51/51:

Pettigrove, George W., Head, White, Male, 48 yoa, b. Maine, Father b. Ireland and Mother b. Canada. He worked as a Laborer in a Logging Camp.

Pettigrove, Kathryn M., Wife, White, Female, 53 yoa, b. Denmark; Both mother and father born in Denmark. She worked in a Boarding Home as a Cook.

Pettigrove, William H., Son, White, Male, 17 yoa, b. Washington; Worked as a Laborer in a Saw Mill.

Pettigrove, Herbert G., Son, Male, White, 16 yoa, b. Washington; Worked as a Laborer in a Saw Mill. I'm told he moved to California and was a Marshall or something like that down there.

I would love to hear from anyone who may have some information on this family.
