First Name:

A J Petty Family - from Paris TN to Davis OK

Updated September 29, 2007

About Our Family Research

Around 1903 the Andrew Jackson Petty family moved from Paris, TN to Davis, IT, (Indian Territory, now Oklahoma) hoping that the dry climate would help the health of their daughters Pearl , Ruby, and Ethel, who suffered from TB. They also had a son, Walter.

Pearl was married and had three small children when she died in 1909. Her collection of photographs and post cards was passed on to me through her daughter Zada Lucile Raines Dillard. Additional photos and memorabilia were collected by her great granddaughter Dorothy Pearl Raines Perrone. Dorothy left these to me as well as her geneological research.
