Anna Pettit Broomell was a member of Green Street Monthly Meeting and active in the Society of Friends. She was chairman of the Publications Committee at Pendle Hill, the Quaker study center, and Philadelphia Yearly Meeting First Day School Committee (Race Street). She died October 4, 1972.

Anna was the daughter of Franklin (1841-1912) and Hannah Thompson Pettit. The family transferred from Salem Monthly Meeting to Green Street Monthly Meeting. The Pettit family had been members of the Society of Friends beginning with Jonathan Pettit who became a Quaker in 1750 and married Mary Shrouds. Their son, Joseph Pettit (1752-801), married Sarah Bassett. Their grandson, David Pettit (1808-1876), married Martha Engle. He was a progressive farmer and corresponded with Charles Downing. He was also an Elder at Salem Monthly Meeting and visited the Great Nemaha Indian Agency in 1873. David and Martha Pettit had six children: Mary, Woodnutt, William H., Franklin (1841-1912), Hannah (b. 1843 and married Harrison Streeter), and David (born 1849). David Pettit married out of unity to Clara Kern. They lived in Philadelphia and, later, Beverly, N.J. He was in the iron business and a writer and poet.
