From the Geneva (Ohio) Times December 1, 1886
Frank A. Pettibone, Esq., died at his residence in Ashtabula, Saturday morning last. He had been ill for some weeks, the immediate cause of his death being quick consumption. He served through the War of the Rebellion with distinction. He enlisted in Company G, One Hundred and Sixth [sic] Regiment, O.V.I., and served three years. He was in the battles of Perryville, Stone River, and Chickamauga, and several other engagements in which his regiment participated. He was very popular with the boys of his regiment, and was one of the best speakers at their reunions. On his return home from the war he entered the law office of Judge Sherman. After being admitted, he began practicing in Geneva, where he is still kindly remembered by many of our older citizens. After practicing here three or four years, he located in Ashtabula. He was generous to a fault, possessed the happy faculty of making warm friends, and a host of them will sincerely regret his early demise. As a lawyer he possessed more than ordinary ability. At one time he was Prosecuting Attorney of this county. He married Miss Jennie Kenny [sic], of Geneva, O., in the fall of 1865, and she, with one child, a son, survives him. He was a member of Paulus Post, the members of which turned out in a body to participate in the burial ceremonies, which took place Monday afternoon.
[Corrections: F.A. Pettibone served in the 105th OVI; Jennie’s surname is spelled Kinney on most documents]
