After reading and re-reading your message, I am having trouble understanding some of the relationships that you mentioned. How does Rachel Lowe fit into the picture? According to other sources, Rachel or Jemima Lowe, supposedly the first wife of Samuel O. Pettus of Virginia, Alabama, and Texas, was the mother of John Calvin Pettus of Arkansas. Samuel supposedly married Rachel or Jemima in 1819. If I understand your message correctly, Rachel, who was born in Alabama, married John J. Henry of Alabama and had a daughter Cynthia Henry who was the mother of Robert M. Pettus and Elizabeth Henry. Who was Cynthia's husband?
