McClellan "Mack" Pettigrew
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 14, 1909
Madison County
Indiana, USA
Death: Dec., 1977
Madison County
Indiana, USA

Son of Norton Greenleaf Pettigrew and Ida Mae Scott. Brother to Pearl E., Leona W., Herbert Herman and Irene Pettigrew.

He was a POW in WWII, tortured by the Japanese. According to my father, they pulled out his toenails one-by-one in an effort to make him give up information. And of course, giving up any information was treason. As far as I know, he never told them anything.

Married a Ruth (last name unknown - might have been March) and died of throat cancer just before Christmas in 1977.
