Living with the family of J.A. McPeak age 39 VA.,and his wife Mary 31 GA., on the 1860 census of Upshur County, Texas are two Petty males, George, age 26 and born in Tennessee and Thomas, age 6 born in Texas. On the 1870 census (same area) is listed a John McPeak age 49 born in VA with wife Mary age 42 born in GA. Next door is living a John Petty age 25 GA. and his wife, Mary. My question: Does anyone know the relationship between these families? Is John A. McPeak's wife a Petty? Thanks for any help.
