To Nancy G. Chesnut Nancy the only Gettys I knew was the one that I wen to school with in Rock Hill, S.C. Ithink he is now a judge in York County, S.C. A Mammie Gettys Atkinson of Flowery Branch, Ga. called me. We be long to the same Carolinas Genological Society in Monroe, N.C. She wanted to know if I knew about any Finleys in Ireland. Ihave found that the same john Gettys that came to Charleston, S.C. in the 1790's and settled in the Waxhaw area of S.C. He was married twice. Once to a Miss Finlay. She died in 1789.Then he was married to a Ann Thompson. The 2 marriages produced 4 children. This Mrs Atkinson Wento the same Rock Hill High School and Neelys Creek ARP Church I did. Will post more info. when I find it.Thanks, Bob Finley, Sr.
