According to Williamson County, Tennessee Marriage Records by Wilena Roberts Byach, Thomas W. Pettus married Elizabeth E. Jordan on 17 Oct. 1829 (p. 210). Thomas's middle name was Waters. He was the son of Capt. Thomas Pettus and his wife Barbary Overton Pettus (maiden name) of Charlotte County, Virginia. Capt. Thomas and Barbary were my third great-grandparents. I am descended from their son, Walker Pettus of Charlotte County and his wife Nancy Hudson Jordan.
