    While not confirmed, he was likely born in France, perhaps Marseilles. It appears that the family business was of Marseilles.

    He embarked from Marseilles, France on the American ship Pepperill and was only one of three passengers. The New York Times reports several arrivals of the Pepperill in New York harbor from Marseilles and elsewhere. I suspect on this voyage it was transporting cargo consigned to Badetty.

    On this ship's manifest, he was listed as P. Badetty, and was of the appropriate age for Pierre. He embarked from Liverpool, and was traveling from France. He was traveling with an M. Badetty, age 48. This was likely Michael Badetty, later identified as a business partner with Pierre.

    This M. Badetty (b. abt 1816) is not of the appropriate age for the M. Badetty (b. abt 1829-1830) living in Brookhaven, NY at the time of the 1880 census; and living with Hubert Badetty in 1870 in Maryland.

    He likely was the United States representative for M. Badetty and Fils (sons) of Marseilles, France. They were major millers of nuts in Marseilles, principally West African peanuts, from which the oils were extracted. He was in a partnership with Michael Badetty aft about 1866, with special partners Eugene Dutilh of New York City and Melchior Badetty of Marseilles, France; this partnership was apparently dissolved about 1868.

    Marseilles was the principal center for this industry in Europe. Several ships with consignment to M. & P. Badetty are recorded. The Badetty family was prominent in Marseilles; a well known Badetty mansion "Black Throat," found at Parc des Bruyeres (Heath Park), was built for Bartholomew Badetty in the 19th century and remained in the family until 1908.

    Pierre married Frances Miriam Merrill, ^ before 21 May 1870. Frances (daughter of Lewis Long Merrill, > and Lucy Matthews, >) was born on 7 Jul 1834 in Truxon, Cortland, NY; died on 1 Jan 1899; was buried on 4 Jan 1899. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


    A 21 May 1870 conveyance of property in New York City records a Frances M. to be the wife of a Pierre Badetty.

    The property was sold on 21 May 1870.

    Pierre Badetty is recorded in Town of Brookhaven records as requesting that the adjoining roads be surveyed. The Town highway commissioners met at the Badetty residence to discuss the petition. That the Badetty's sold their New York City residence in 1870 suggests that they moved to Brookhaven about that date.

    South Side Signal, Babylon, NY (1875): "Brookhaven. P. Badetty is building an extension to his neat little cottage, which improves its appearance very much."
