I am descended as follows:My Mother was Lucile Pettus b. 14 Jun 1907, Elk City OK, her Father John Samuel Pettus b. 12 May 1864 ray County Mo, his Father William Rice Pettus b. 16 Jul 1832, Lincoln County KY, his Father Joseph Pettus b. 9 Feb 1806, Virginia, his Father Joseph Pettus, Sr b. 6 Jun 1773, his Father Col. William Pettus, his Father Dabney Pettus.
I am only an amateur genealogist.Most of my information comes from CD ROMs published by Family Tree Maker.Their CD #187 contains lots of Pettus information concerning the Dabneys and Overtons.
In another email I think you mentioned a Pettus book you are writing or have written.I asked whether it is published and where I could obtain a copy.
