Does anyone have documentation for Ann who was b. 1744 and ca. 1762 married Joseph Petty?According to various records, Joseph might have been still living when she married his brother, Presley,l b. 1757.This would make him 13 years younger than his wife but he might have been feeling obligated to help raise his brother's children, not unheard of in those days.
Today I found a source indicating that Joseph died in 1785 as opposed to 1795 I had read earlier.She married Presley and had more children.Then, I found a third marriage to DEALY and had still one more son, Vincent, to him.
Can anyone tell me if this is accurate?I would like to document this info in order to track the PETTY offspring of both brothers.I suspect that my line is related but I cannot straighten out the wives in order to find all of the children.
