I have a fairly comprehensive biography of John Freeman Pettus in my forthcoming book. I also have brief biographies for his children, including John Milam Pettus. In John Milam Pettus's biography, I have his wife, Frances Foster, dying 29 Mary 1887. I also have a list of their children and marriages, but I have no dates of birth, death, or marriage for them. If you discover anything further about Frances, I would certainly like to hear from you. Thanks for your interest in my book. I am presently working on the index. I began working on the index in October, as I recall, and have just finished indexing chapter 5 (of 50). At the present rate, it could take a year to complete the index!
