Lewis Gideon Petticord (1866-1902)
Having read your postings on the Find A Grave memorial pages for the siblings of Lewis Petticord, I decided that I should write to you as you seem to have more than a passing interest in this extended family. I am not related to the Petticord family (by whatever spelling) but, rather, I fancy myself as an auto racing historian who specializes in the history of that sport with any Kansas connection. Lewis Gideon Petticord had a son who was a professional race car driver and who even raced in the Indianapolis 500 a couple of times. He was Harold H. Jack Petticord (1900-1940). Jack was born here in Wichita and is also buried in the family plot here. He qualified for, and raced in, the 1927 Indianapolis 500. He also drove relief in the Indy 500 a couple of times and unsuccessfully attempted to qualify for a couple of others.

I have created a web page about Jack Petticord that I think (hope) you might find interesting. You can find that at:

I would be interested in learning anything more that you might be able to tell me about Lewis Gideon Petticord, his wife, and his children. Ive been unable to locate any living descendants of Lewis Gideon Petticord and would love to know if you have been more successful in doing that that I have been. I am also interested in the inheritance that Jack Petticord is supposed to have received after the passing of an uncle. Id love to find out who that uncle may have been. You can read a little more about that on my web page too.

Hi, I added some of the info but not all since the children links are on the site. Thanks.

I sent edits for DOD, birth and death locations. I added his obituary on the photo caption. Mr. Gilchrist was in management at Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. Thank you for making corrections.

Lura Gale Rose Keyes Anthony 8881213
You created and added on 1/21/2015 the Find A Grave page for Wellington Peter Anthony 141611253.

On Lura Gale Rose (maiden name) Keyes (1st spouse last name) Anthony (2nd spouse last name) page there is a photo of Gale and Wellington's full Gravestone. This photo was taken by isabel on 03/28/2016.

Since there is no photo on Wellington's Find A Grave page can you put this photo on his page please.

This would be most appreciated.

Thank you
Margaret R
