   Jane Clotilda was born in New York State in 1828. She married Elihu Ulysses Pettingill in 1849 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. They had two children when they crossed the Plains in 1852, but all in all she was the mother of fifteen children, three boys and twelve girls.
   The family lived in Bountiful for three years, Ogden for two years, then in 1856 they moved to Willard in Box Elder County where they purchased a farm.
   Jane never turned a hungry person away, and her door was always open to the homeless. Besides her own family she reared a number of orphans to man and womanhood.
   Jane never knew what it was like to have plenty. With such a large family, clothing was often scarce. She cut up her wedding dress and underskirt to make baby clothes. She could put a patch on clothing as nice as any tailor. She seemed to have the gift of healing by just rubbing the pain from a person's body.
   Jane's husband passed away in 1899, leaving her alone since her children were married. She passed away in 1904 of pneumonia at her home in Willard, Utah, leaving a posterity of ten living children, ninety-eight grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
